baldwin's henley fit is pretty slim but not skinny. however i haven't tried the gap versions. my guess is that they use a similar denim as their gap selvedge which isn't the best and just cut it into their henley fit. if it's anything like their gap selvedge, it's going to stretch a fair amount. if you're going to spend $100 on denim it might be worth it to look at naked and famous which are around $130, as well as United Stock Goods. it'd be a jump in quality for only $30 more.
I could get a pair of N&F indigo revival "skinny guy" size 30 a bit under retail. But being a total newbie I have no idea about all these different types of fabrics except for the weight and colours. So what exactly does it mean by indigo revival? From my Googling I get something on the lines of "traditional way of dying".
But from the measurements at Blueowl for "skinny guy" it seems quite similar to the henley fit. Maybe a little tighter at the thighs but the leg opening is roughly 7 inches still. If I wanted something smaller at the leg opening, I'd have to go with APC PS or PNS?
