The fit is perfect on me, not baggy and not slim with the rise just right. I've never had much luck with ernest sews sizing and fits but I'll try them again. I'm afraid they'll either be too slim or too full of a leg to wear with my denim/dove grey loafers.
When I tried the BMX, they were a bit too baggy for me, just like the RB1, so despite its being a straight leg, you might really like those RBs. Also, when was the last time you tried the LTD? You will see people around here talking about the dip in PDC quality, about two years ago, and around that time they also started cutting the LTD a bit wider. As much as I dislike the quality and ubiquity, you might also try 7 for all mankind in the relaxed fit, sounds like it could be just the fit you want. That and whatever the more relaxed fit from Citizens of Humanity is. Those two are pretty full in the leg, with a bootcut. Also, if you are willing to give straight leg a chance, check out the Nudie Baggy Bjorn, maybe those would be to your liking?
