The 0201s are the fit I like, based on the size chart (never wore). They don't look radically different from the 0701 in rise or leg. Tough to tell if the top block is very different between the 0201 and 0701. In my direct experience, you might want to look at Skull 5507s (smooth sanforized), Warehouse Dubbleworks 660 (slightly slubby stf), Pure Blue Japan 008 (slubby stf), Flat Head 300x series(s), a few of the Sams, Evisu Lot 1 Specials (amazing smooth repro fit w/taper). Ones I haven't tried but I'm considering and are highly respectable: Oni Blue Fit, Studio D'Artisan 103s, Eternal 811BG, Fullcount 0105C. All are slightly
different in fit, but in the same range. Gordon at BiG is a master at guidance in this department. Ask him.
