Have not bought denim in a very long time and looking for a rec. Last pair I had was Lee Gold Label - 101Z in 29x34 and they fit great. Looking for something similar, like lower waist and skinnier cut, dry and on the rigid side. I'm 5'10" 140lbs but also in my forties. I like the look of the apc petit new standard fit and also Nudie thin finn but not sure what else is out there. Budget $300 or less. Thanks!
