There are quite a few cuts of Paper Denims. From your description, I doubt the one's you liked were the GTOs, which are considerably more flared (hem to knee ratio is higher) than the ICN's, and are lower rise. On the other hand, they are considerably slimmer. For a straight leg (Helmut Lang style, which is *slightly* tapered), slimmer style, try the GTS. I doubt you'd tried on the SLM, since that cut is really quite new (only one season old.) If you could describe the jeans you tried on (what the pockets looked like, the cut, the wash (some washes only come in specific cuts), maybe I could help you find the jean you are looking for. Other jeans to try are the Earnest Sewn Maz Dark Hutch jean, which is slim and only slightly bootcut, the Standard A.P.C. jean for unwashed denim, Nudie's Regular Ralf jean, Helmut Lang Bootcut (really a straight leg), G-Stars Low Straight cut (I prefer the Low Boot, but that is me), and some Rag and Bone models (these are really, really, hard to find, btw). Good luck.
