Giving measurements won't help at all. What size pants do you wear? Perfect. Assuming you already have a pair of jeans, measure them out and compare them to what you see on Blue Owl and other sites. My guess is that you'll want a slim cut than a taper. There's a thread for the under-$200 group but my recommendations these days go towards Rogue Territory (see Stanton) and RRL (Low straight). Lee 101s or 101z depending on how high you like your rise would be another good bet. The jeans you linked are good, too, from what I hear.

Are there huge differences between them that can help make my decision? Will prob head to SF sometime to try on FH and IH
They're pretty much in the same league. I'd think more important than specific brand would be fit. The denim is all good but they each have their own characteristics. I'd do a search for some worn pairs to see if you like the results.

I love the denim on PBJ but I just don't feel like construction-wise they're in the same league as oni, sam, or others. I'd never buy another of PBJs but if you're looking for something similar but better, go Strike Gold.

There's a link above of $200 jeans. Without a price range, just look through the affiliates on the right: Blue Owl, Context, Self Edge, etc. and see their selection.

I do not like the tucked under look of standard hemming. I don't know if it makes any difference but I like about an inch cuff on my jeans. What are your guy's experience how do you rgo about getting our jeans hemmed?
Side note: Do not like the stacked look, the inseam needs to be shortened.
A regular tailor will use a thread color similar to the old hem but with a lockstitch. If you send your jeans into a place like Blue Owl, they'll hem them but keep the same kind of stitch (chainstitch.) The former is cheaper and easier, the latter is more expensive with a longer turn around. If you're not picky, a tailor is the way to go. There are a few on here, however, that are a bit more anal and want things kept exactly the same.

Rogue Territory is a bit like this, especially with the RK fit, but you can compare measurements. Otherwise, browse Self Edge's site or ask Kiya on his thread for a good rec. I just can't think of too many brands in the repro range that do a carrot fit. Lee 101 does it, Han Kjobenhavn does, etc. but they're all mid-range. Nothing wrong with those choices, though.
Of course, the alternative would be to find a denim and top block you like and simply have them altered. Or go the MTM route with a company like Jack/Knife.
