Some jeans that have a fair amount of room in the top block, but are still slim through the leg, include most 501 inspired jeans such as the 5EP Straight Down Zip or Low Down Boot, most Earnest Sewn jeans, including the Fulton, Rotton, and Hutch, APCs, such as New Standard and potentially the rescue although I might avoid that one because it is cut pretty full through the lower leg, and Nudies such as the Straight Sven or Regular Ralf. Also keep in mind that if you wore your jeans on your hips rather than at your true waist (i.e. slouched them lower) they would be more relaxed in the thigh because your thighs would be at a thicker part of the jean (if you know what I'm saying)
