i saw a guy in uniqlo wearing a pair of levi's just like what you described and they looked awesome. guy looked way cooler than all the dudes in skinnies around (uniqlo basically makes jeggings for guys now). if I ever buy another pair of indigo denim they will be like this.
on a related note, any menswear that was even remotely cool at NYFW was not skinny. and then of course you still have lemaire, ami, umit benan, and a ton of others across the atlantic who long ago abandoned skinny. it's not going away anytime soon, but it's past its prime
