Tiger's right. Jean Shop 'Rockers' are in between the 1980 and the KMW 'Rocker'...but closer to the 1980 fit with a slightly wider leg opening.
The Jean Shop 'Skinny' is a better interpretation of a skinny fit, I think than KMW offers. The KMW Rocker is exacly the 1980 cut, just tapered more, which felt like an afterthought to me.
Try them both on, if you can, because I personally wasn't deeply impressed with either 'skinny' version. Bought both, got rid of both (yes, Tiger...I know ;-)
You may find the Skull 5010 or 5507 much better to your liking, especially the 5010, which I find to be the ideal 'skinny-er' jean (but not 'emo' skinny).
