This may be true of the straight leg, but I'm wearing a pair of 33 slim fits right now, (I have a pair of 32" that are slimmer through the seat, but prefer the 33's, which are slouchy and imo, look better, and the hem is maybe 7.1", on a wide day. (The 32's are not much smaller in the hem.) And they are fairly tight on the calves. Actually, last time I went through SFO, I had to get secondary screening because there was no way the jeans were getting anywhere close to being able to be lifted high enough to see the knee brace I need to wear if I am going to be walking around all day. I offered to just drop trou and save everyone some time, but they demurred.
Also, and honestly speaking as a guy who is about a 32, a really small hem makes guys who are not super skinny look like Tweedledee. Up to my size, if you are taller, a really small hem may look okay, but it's marginal. if you are a 36 or something, I dunno.
fwiw, I think that the Triple works have a great cut. In terms of most flattering, for me, it is the RRL slim fits - the quality of the denim and the make is not in the same league, however.
