I'm happy with my black Zam B soft J pants. Regular/roomy upper block and strong taper. I got the cotton version and they're thick and sturdy, but still drapes nicely.
The J cut, frayed hem and long inseam might not be exactly what you're looking for, but if you hem them (I got rid of the fraying), they will work well with non-SZ-stuff. J cut legs makes for stacking on the outside of the leg and that the outseam twists to the front of the leg by the hem.
I got mine for 220 shipped on one of his sample sales.
