I like the new arcuates, but I feel they look better on the butt than they do with the jeans lying flat.
I wouldn't call a 1-1.5" taper from knee to hem slight. Plus I have small waist and big thighs, so all but the slightest taper would make me look carrot-top. Suppose I'm a hard fit tho, as even the "relaxed" cuts from many makers fit snug on me.
Ya, I reckon all details are personal preference. But there's a reason APC is so popular, even among people who know better denim. Their cuts are great.
