That's handy, I've got some old new standards, old petit standards, some new new standards, new petit standards and now I can get some new petit new standards.

Thought the petit standard was more tappered version of the new standard . Size down 2 as with the ns? Any idea?

They are a bit more tapered than the regular petit standard, the new petit standard has a hem of 6.5 and the 'traditional' petit standard has a hem of 6.75 with size 32.

Yeah this makes no fucking sense? if their between ns and ps, how can they be more tapered than regular ps! da fuck.

the naming is confusing, but i don't think they're between the two models. they're a new cut, with the rise of the new standard and a slim, tapered leg, as someone mentioned before. regular petit standard is not that tapered anyway.
i've asked tres bien for measurements, will post them later.

"Cut slightly narrower than the classic New Standard. Narrow leg, slightly fitted at bottom to give the appearance of a straight leg" tres surely have a way with words

That confused me aswell. Might just order both and try for myself

I own a pair of N&F skinny guys in 33. They have stretch fabric so haven't changed size, and I've since decided that the thighs are too tight, the rise far too low and that I'd like a bit of taper in the calves.
Petit standard seems like the right move, can anyone with experience of the PS and skinny guy cuts comment if the PS has a higher rise?
Also I've not been able to find any, but worth asking - does anyone have fit pics of just sizing down one on the PS? I'm not really interested in not being able to do up the top button for a month or whatever.
Sorry to be the guy asking sizing questions, but reading dozens of pages on SuFu has only given me sizing anxiety due to all the conflicting info. Also has anyone got a difinitive answer regarding vanity sizing changes?

those petit new standards look like what im after… or ill just buy cures again. fit me pretty much spot on

posted a few pages back, no changes in vanity sizing for the raw denim.
imo, size down one if you consider yourself to have huge thighs(no homo), two if not.

Size down more than one size if you can. It will take less than a week to stretch out and even then it will stretch out more than you want. I'd say try both one size and two sizes down and go on the overall fit rather than waist. APC stretchage is ridiculous.

Wicked guys thanks very much, think I might give the petit new standards from oi polloi a try, higher rise and more forgiving thighs looks good.
At least I think that's right - I'm assuming Oi Polloi got the thigh and knee measurements the wrong way round because otherwise the PNS have giant saggy knees and matchstick thighs.
