I have a pair also, and though I thought the difference in rise wasn't really noticable, it sure is! The topblock on my One Wash Copper Labels is really tight (though not Boa Constrictor like) and the rise is low, not Somet territory... But close.
On the other hand, my 0201 are a lot more forgiving in the topblock. I can wear them without a belt and the rise is indeed a tad higher, without being a real " high rised" jean. Mid rise is the perfect description I guess. Super comfortable to wear. I probably could have sized down one on these, but I got these from a store where I tried them on. The fit after soak was good, some minor flaring going on on the back, but these haven't seen the washing machine yet, so probably going to shrink some more.
Given the fact my 0201 are a comfortable fit, I decided, after measuring a couple of pairs that I needed a size down on the G007's. With some minor stretching these will be perfect.
Most of the time I wear my 0201's now, because they start to break in nicely, forming creases on the lap etc. Also some fading going on allready. Once they take off I will start mixing the G007's in more. They are now just for the weekends.
