ahah usually i don't associate APC New Standards with the phrase nuthugger (i use this term in reference to ACNE jeans, Strip destroyed black denim, etc.) but looking at that pic they do look a lil too snug for ya :p

I got my cure jeans and have been wearing them all day for two days. They have started to loosen up in the thighs a bit. It's a very good 100% cotton denim weave so it's not going to stretch that easily. (and you wouldn't want it to)

Okay on the website they have "New Standard Jean" but they only have it in "overdyed black." I want to get the same pair of the raw indigo jeans in the pics posted above. The "Standard Jean," http://www.apc.fr/us/en/fiche_articl...f=1C000512197M is this the same thing? Do these just call the the different washes/colors "New Standard" while the plain indigo ones are simply "Standard"? This is just confusing because people are praising the New Standard Jean and I think that's what I want: the basic raw indigo that is supposed to mold to your body.

Also, If I wear a 30 in Paper Denim and in AGs (the size I always try on first/order blindly), I should be a 28 in APC?

Sorry to be a pain! But thanks in advance for the help!

That confused me a bit as well, but remember not evrything that a company makes goes on to the website for purchase. I ordered them by phone order. Just call and ask for the New Standards in Indigo. And yes, you are probably a 28/29. Remember they'll be very tight when you first try them on though

I want to do the beach treatment as well I'll wait until the end of next summer so that I have sufficient use on them and it's warm enough to go to the beach.

^ haha yeah... that sounds like it.. my APCs came with a recipe card for how to treat your jeans... and one of them was to wear them forever and not wash them... and then wear them in the ocean, rub them with sand, rinse them in regular water, and then let them dry out in the sun...
