APC fit question after sizing down

Currently looking at APC jeans and I'm paticularly interested in the New standard cut and would have to size down to either a 25 or 26 depending on which measurements to go by. I currently wear a 28 in R&R and they fit well but a little loose on some pairs that stretched out.

I measured my best fitting pair (Henlee Intruders tag sz 28) and they came out to 13.5" aligned so a sz 27 is my TTS.

Searched and found these measurements (thanks Conifurious), but idk if they are prior to stretching or not, if they are I think I should go for a 25 to consider the stretch.

APC NEW STANDARD

Tagged Size Measured Size
Waist --- Rise --- Thigh --- Knee --- Leg Opening
25 26 --- 10- - - - 10- - - - -7.25- - - -7.25
26 27 --- 10.25- - -10.5- - - 7.25- - - - -7
27 29 --- 10.25- - -10.75- - -7.5- - - - - 7
28 30 --- 10.25- - -10.75- - -7.75 - - - 7.25
(Why is the leg openin on a 25 bigger than a 26 and 27?)

Would I be okay to size down to a 25 without the New Standard looking like its riding up my ass, squishing my junk and looking like girl jeans or would a 26 be fine?

I've read about guys sizing down 3, but if you are worried about them looking like "girl jeans" I would be very cautious about sizing down that much. I am a girl, sized down 2, and they do look like girl jeans- meaning they are form fitting. I could not imagine trying to squeeze into a pair that I'd sized down 3.
I got mine from azalea a long time ago- not sure if they have measurements on their site, but think so, and those would obvioulsy be pre-stretch measurements.

You'll be fine in a 25. It is only effectively sizing down 1.
