I'm guessing others have this problem, because I don't think many are buying slim guys for the massive knees and ankles.
From what you are saying, the back rise measurements could be different between the two cuts. For me, the rises feel the same, front and back, on both cuts, but I haven't measured the back rise on either cut yet. I'll do that when I get the chance and post my results here.
I do feel that the Weird Guy fits narrower in the hips than the Slim Guy. On some body types, that could cause the jean to ride lower, which could explain what you have experienced with the WG.
I don't know if anyone is buying Slim Guys for the "massive knees", but I can tell you that I bought mine because of the wider ankle. IMO, the larger leg opening of the Slim Guy looks a lot better with boots like the Alden Indy than the heavily tapered lower leg of the Weird Guy. The Weird Guy looks a lot better with dressier shoes, though.

I own 2 pairs of Slim Guys and 2 pairs of Weird Guys. All 4 pairs are tagged 32. All 4 pairs measure 10.5" in the front rise. Are you getting different rise measurements on your pairs?
