    So I currently own about 4 Slim Jims, 2 Thin Finns, 1 Regular Ralf and 1 Bootcut Olga.
    One more from Japan that I'm forgetting the name of at this very moment and am too lazy to go upstairs to check my closet.

    Point being, I need a new pair of jeans. I'm finding the slim jims to have too much of that "carrot top" look where it slims thru the calves.
    I don't wear the thin finns anymore.
    Problem with the RR and BO is that they're measured in a 32" and 34" inseam respectively. I don't like folding the jeans up. I need a 30"

    So, with all that said, is there a nudie style for me? I would love a RR if it came in a 30.
    I saw on cultizim a Diesel pair that came in a 28/30 which would be perfect.

    What does everyone recommend?
    I'm 5'8" and 130lbs.
    I fit into a 27/30 slim jim fine, but the bottom is too slimming. I would rather it stay consistent and looser on my calves and have a little larger opening.
    A bigger rise wouldn't hurt either. (That's more crotch room right?)

    I would prefer nudie, but like I said, if there are other jean companies that might be better, I'll begrudgingly go to them lol.

    Thank you all.
    Jim.

    Why thank you all. Research starts now. If interested, I'll let you fine gentleman know what I land upon.
    Just an aside, will any particular jeans hold up well for motorcycle riding? Considering I'm going to be getting one shortly.

    And beautiful_freak, most people are bigger than men lol.

    Have you considered APC Jeans? I got a pair of New Standard's through the other day and they're pretty awesome (see my pics). They sound, from your description, to be exactly what you are after.

    You can also try Imperial Duke if you don't like the too heavy and stiff Iron Heart or Naked&Famous stuff

    Check out Rock and Republic at Saks. The Henlee bootcut jeans have the best fit of any jean I've ever worn (and I think you can get the Henlees in both regular and slim fit).

    Will be checking out Red Cloud tomorrow - their TaoBao (Chinese Rakuten) is close to my location.
    Based on the post and pictures from SuFu and IndigoRoots (as well as their own website) it should be something to try out...

    weird guys have a slight taper and a 7-7.5 inch leg opening opposed to sj's roughly 8 inch open. the new standard might be a good option as mentioned above. straight leg with a slightly bigger leg opening (around .25-.5 bigger depending on size)
