Give 'em a normal wash in the machine - hotter the temp - the more indigo loss.

I was in the shop a few weeks back and there was mountains of denim there so gawd knows what it was like when he was getting more work.

Just looking for some advice, just got some LVC 501z 1954's. The fit ok around the waist but need the shrink to fit for the legs. Stupidly didn't size up on the waist and i'm worried they will shrink too much and wont fit. Should they be ok if I wear them in the bath for the shrink to fit process will this stop he waist shrinkage?

Can anyone identify these form this vague description.
Levi 501s in TK Maxx, no LVC tag, very nice faded green wash, extremely soft and had selvage with a red edge.
Tempted but pricey for the Maxx at £60, plus a very good chance that the uncommon size means they'll end up reduced.

Does the APC PNS have a wider thigh than the PS? PS fits very tight in my upper leg.

I think they should but actually they're tighter than the PS

if ps is tight on your thighs pns will be aswell. I have had both and have the same problem. The pns is really skinny all the way down, more so than ps knee down. Thats bullshit about them stretching on the thighs aswell. If you have big thighs then PS or PNS are not for you

Yeah you're right pal, APCs aren't known for stretching at all.

well ye the waist stretches out, but after having owned 2 pairs i can safely say that the amount of stretch in the thigh is minimal. If they're tight on your thighs they will stay that way

Yes indeed, totally agree with you.
I have even lost weight and the Petit Standard now fits me quite loose in the waist but still very tight on my thighs, even after wearing it for 3 months.
Any other brands someone could recommend with a bigger thigh but still a slim fit (ps/pns) denim?

Just buy new standards and get them tapered. Works a treat.

Edwin ed55s are roomy in the thigh and have a good taper & the pockets are actually a half decent size. Pockets in apc's used to do my nut in.

UES 400t. Ticks all the boxes.
