maybe 1950s might be better for you, i've never tried them on myself though so i can't say. would love to get hold of a pair.
I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm off, but essentially, the top block of the 1950 and the 2010 are the same. the leg of the 1950 tapers slightly from the knee to hem. The 1980 has a slimmer top block, and is straight from knee to hem.
I love my 1950's fit, tho they did shrink a little more in length then I wanted on initial (cold) soak. I will be keeping them clear of warm or hot water.
