Recommendation for first pair

I browsed through this forum and several others. From what I've gathered, I've narrowed down my choice to either the APC new standard or the KMW 1980 (my thighs are kind of big so I want something not too slim).

I was wondering if there were any other brands/fits that would be better.

Also, reviews on my two choices would be much appreciated especially on the fit.

Thanks.

Those are both slim fitting through the thighs. Not sure how big your thighs are but you may want to consider APC Rescue or KMW 2010 if you dont want them too tight.

Depending on your fade preference - APC will fade rather quickly while KMW are very slow to fade. Their quality is fine and pretty much equal to each other.

Out of those 2 I would go with APC. Personally I don't really care for either compared other brands though.

Go with the cheap one. Trust me, you will make a newbie mistake.

I agree with the cheap suggestion. Maybe some Levis 501 STF will be good to get you started for a couple of months and see if you like it, although APCs are pretty great for starters.

Remember: Hot soaking is your friend. Don't be that guy who reeks.

Not sure what difference going with the cheapest pair makes here. If you are investing 6 - 12 months to start breaking these in by wearing them daily you should try finding something that is decent quality and fits right. Take a look at other peoples evolution pics and find something you like.
