Don't sleep on the skinny fit tapered. Might be the most perfect pair of denim I've tried on. It's very comparable to Geller's type D denim, which is what I've been primarily wearing, but at a fraction of the price, it's a no brainer. Got the dark gray one, and the hem, the knee, thighs and waist are pretty much perfect, and there is just enough of spandex or poly or whatever that it's comfortable out of the box.

slim fit stretch tapered and the top block wasn't that sharp, felt sloppy, but definitely more room there if you want it. But the skinny fit already has stretch to it, so it's not really needed.
legging jean, which just seemed not worth it. Lower price point and the whole thing just felt cheaper.
