Good. Starting off with starter denim is not going to help you with anything. My first denims were APCs and I don't even wear them. Anyway, it isn't your first car, it isn't your first musical instrument , it's just denim.
Recheck your initial stats. None of your jeans have a 9" hem, which is pretty big. The 005 is very slim and the eternal is not far behind. Assuming you are a size 32, both jeans will have hems that are more or less 8". The samurai is 8.5", which is pretty versatile. The rise is low on the 005 and 10.5 on the samurai VX. The eternal Im not sure.
If you are not used to slim jeans and just want some nice straight legged jeans, the VX is the way to go. It is the one I would choose. I'm wearing a similar pair of samurai's right now (5000BK) and I like them.

I am kind of between the eternal and samurai...I really don't want a slim fitting pair of jeans though, so I'm starting to lean more towards the samurai, even though I kind of like the look of the eternals better. The measurements on the samurai and the eternals look fairly similar to me though...http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...mart&Itemid=28http://blueingreensoho.com/site/inde...mart&Itemid=28
I'm completely fine with an 8" or 8.5" hem. Any tips on sizing the samurais would be much appreciated. The most important numbers to me are the bottom/front rise and the thighs.
A little more info: the bottom rise on my fav pair of jeans is 14.5".
Another difference I'm mulling over is that the samurai's are 17oz and the eternals are 14.5...I'm wondering if they'll be much of a heat difference come summer..
Thank you all for your help and patience, this is really helping me figure out what I want.
