slim has a longer (or higher) rise and a slim straight leg. weird guys have an aggressive taper, as well as a weird "V" low rise waist.
no offence but if you are normally are 36" , go for slimguys (possibly in 33 or 34).
a heavily tapered trouser doesn't look great with a thicker torso in my opinion (it just accentuates the thickness).
I am a 33" and i wouldn't wear anything with a leg opening any less that 8".
Personally i dont think anyone over the age of 25 should be wearing tapered
cuts, the "carrot" shaped is a passing fad.
here are some size charts to compare with the measurements for chinos that you like
(note they are generic size charts from tate and yoko).
the thighs are meant to be the same size between cuts.
If you are to make a purchase, call the store and get measurements if you cannot try them on.
Remember they should be tight on first wear, they will stretch t least an inch in the waist and a bit in the thighs/to block as well.
