I'm in the market for new jeans with a taper. I have sz28 Skull 5010s that fit fine in the thigh, but I wish would fit more snug in the calf (I have skinny legs). Nudie Thin Finns have the dimensions I want (7" knee, 6.75" hem vs 7.5" knee, 7.25" hem on the Skulls), but I'd like some suggestions for Japanese denim. I'll just go to a tailor as a last resort with whatever jeans I buy if there aren't any Japanese jeans with a Thin Finn fit.
That's tough since generally speaking your choices are either good fit but not Japanese, or Japanese with an okay fit. Somet slims might be a good choice but I'm not sure they'll be more snug than your Skulls. They will have a lower rise and fit much more like Diors though, if that's what you're going for.
Johnbull SC-008s are pretty skinny, too. That's a Japanese brand that I've personally had pretty good experience with. I really like my Johnbulls, but they aren't all selvage.
