i have the SS in dry selvage and they fit GREAT, and we all know what wonderful fades they can produce. i paid a ridiculous $220 for them but thats because i wanted them really bad and these were the first generation japanese selvage. you can imagine how perturbed i was when i saw they came back this season lol.
i'm not a hug fan of the flame selvage just bc from what i've seen it doesn't produce as much contrast. the texture and the color variation it produces is nice though.
if you want texture/slubbiness and a slightly slimmer fit i would try the japanese brands -- you get awesome texture and really good contrast. i've been trying to get my hands on a pair just bc i'm getting a bit tired of wearing my SS. i've done a little bit of research and the following brands have almost the same fit as svens (straight leg, 8ish inch hem, 9-10 inch rise, 14-15 inch back rise)
skull jeans 5010xx
pure blue japan xx-005
studio d'artisan sd-103
i think there is a guy on superfuture who is fulfilling orders through japan for a $25 shipping plus 10% commision on the jeans, and they say its cheaper then doing celga or any of the other japanese mail order services. i'm guessing those brands will cost you anywhere from $200-$235, but thats just a guess. i think they are worth the money bc the quality is so much better than nudies (hidden rivets, finished seams throughout, just tougher over all etc). theres also these online stores that may carry what your looking forhttp://blueingreensoho.com/https://own-magazine.com/
