Edwin 505 29W works fine, but hard to find consistently on eBay/SF/etc. No idea where to go with T-shirts. Thanks!
Edwin 505 29W: 13" leg hole -- good fit
Lucky straight fit 29W: 11.5" leg hole -- too tight
AA S Tee -- fits OK, but want looser option
BR XS Tee -- sleeve/body length too short, want looser
Tees: on your next trek down to NYC, get thyself some Uniqlo Ts; they fit decent, albeit w/o tapering, and are dirt cheap (3 for $10 or something like that). Otherwise, try Hanes Perfect Ts, Target's Mossimo Athletic Fit, or buy Alternative Apparel tees from a wholesaler.
Jeans: again, in New York, Blue In Green Soho stocks a variety of Japanese jeans with retro-influenced fits that will fit your criteria. Also, check out Rag & Bone RB11, Crate Hamilton/Squires, or Kicking Mule 1950.
