How do these fit/look, haven't worn any LVC, thinking about getting my first pair, any other recommendations?
Has anyone ordered jeans of yoox? I hate it doesn't tell you the fit/cut

Whats the most you guys have tried for down sizing on apc ns?
Read on sufu sizing down 5 is great for a slim silhouette…
Just wondering how you get it to stretch 5 without buying worn ones?

sizing down 5 from what? if you sized down 5 from your normal size you wouldn't be able to fit in them at all, even after stretching, is this some kind of joke?

That's just sufu nerds speaking turd!

At an absolute push you could maybe size down 3 but it would be an uncomfortable first few weeks! Size down 2 ftw!

Just to reiterate: I sized down 6.

My waist measures 32 1/2

I am a 30 in Nudie Jeans (dry denim).

These are a size 26 APC NS.

Here are a couple more shots which show, clearly, how they fit.

A lot of people here will say 'well . . . if you want a slim jean, you should have just gone for the Petite Standard!'. This is a flawed school of thought, because the petite standard are a totally different cut; far more tapered. If you want a straighter leg, slim jean, and are willing to put the effort in over a few months, this is what they'll look like.

My advice would be: don't be scared to size down a hell of a lot. APC Jeans stretch when you buy them, stretch a lot in the first 60 or so days, and continue to stretch all the while you've got them. Then, when you wash them, they shrink, but stretch right back out again as long as you pop them on when damp for a couple of hours.

Don't be afraid to size down. I said it when I arrived here, and I say it now, reputation be damned! Smiling

He sounds like he doesnt know his waist size either Puzzled

Nudies fit true dont they? So if he's a 30 in them, then he aint a 32.5 waist as he claims.

depends how big your legs are doesnt it. his legs are quite small so he can probably get away with it, especially with new standards. whereas if you have normal sized legs compared to your waist size then you probably shouldnt be looking to size down that much.
apc denim is a bit shit anyway, i have one pair that i've kept because the fades were coming on well and they're good for wearing with more everyday shit. but the crotch is gone now and im not sure i'll bother to repair them.

Last Winter I sized down 2 on my APC Petit Standards, this Winter I sized down 3, no way could you size down anymore than 3 and I have slim thighs and legs.

Nah nudies fit big

I am wearing a pair of new standards sized down 5 from my true waist (25 + true waist approx 30) as we speak but they're a touch tight.

IMO size down 4 from true waist, aka 2 from most normal jean sizes.

Guess it depends on the fit then, no way you could size down anymore than 3 for ps or new cures.

nudies fit 2 bigger (the two pairs i've owned)

yeah i normally only size down 1-2 for ps' but the waist has easily stretched more than 3 inches before. but the new standards have a much much baggier thigh area so makes sizing down a lot easier

might size down 4 like duff said. just for beaters to rotate between the diorz
