Just curious if I am moving in the right direction. Is the rise is too high? Does this fit guide me to a particular brand that would work for my less than ample posterior. Have I found a winner or should I check out the above recommendations? FWIW the rise is not a deal breaker for me.
I think it looks good as far as regular straight fits go. The rise doesn't look too high on you at all IMO.

The 634S is not a repro of the 501. I don't know the measurements of the 501 off the top of my head, but from having worn both, I would say that the 634S is narrower in the leg and lower rise than the 501.
