I have/had three of them (no IH - heavyweight for heavyweight sake is for posers, imo). Of the four, you want the BSP if you really want a slim tapered fit. The SG 1005 and FH 1001 are cut almost identically, which is a slim fit straight leg from the knee down (almost no taper at all). I'm preferring that cut these days because it's more neutral and less 'statement', but I also like a tapered cut. Based on your description of needing a roomier thigh and a smaller leg opening, but a slim overall cut, I could also seriously consider Warehouse 660 cut, Skull 5010. and Samurai 0500xx. All are more tapered than you might think, and still very slim. Consider your rise preferences too. The BSP, Skull and WH have a moderately low rise compared to traditional Levis '66 tapered cuts.
