Hey @mikeford01, I totally feel you on the "more slim than skinny but more skinny than slim straight" problem. I know how hard it is to find a store or brand that has nice fitted denim pants/pants in general although I think I solved your problem. Check this out, http://aeonattire.com/
I'm just suggesting this from something that I stumbled upon that will definitely help, It's called an AEON Taper.
Basically what it does is it tapers the bottom of your cuffs/pant legs so that you have "a slimmer than straight and skinny" pant leg.
It doesn't cut off circulation to your man areas like skinny jeans do but it still provides the slimness that looks nice and clean. It cuts out the mess and leaves legs that impress!
Just trying to help a fellow beast out!
No need for a tailor or alterations
you get a variety of styles
Good quality and function for good $
Transferable to any and all of your pants
Protects the bottom of your denim like nothing else
It's a new and much needed innovation. Hope I helped!
