I kinda agree, which is why I think the 5EP LDB are some of the better jeans for me, I like jeans to be fitted in the lower leg but widen slightly to accomodate boots etc. I think these particular RRLs if they have a drawback is the slightly narrow hem, but they do accomodate my calves comfortably so I don't mind them. I think these Uniqlos look good too, they're one of my favorite not necessarily because of the fit (which I like, but I'm not crazy about the higher rise) but because of the color, which is an amazing blue/purple. I'll post pics of the Acne Mics where I didn't size down when I get them back, which I think look really really good. The sized down Mics are still slim although they may stretch a bit, and I don't feel comfortable wearing them in a dressier outfit.

That's a Barba in my neck size (at least when I bought it), and it's pretty slim but I don't think its too tight. I think it's improperly tucked which may have resulted in the "pulling" that you noticed. I posted the same shirt in the picture that everyone hated with the black jacket a few days ago and it was fine. On a slightly related note, my neck size appears to have increased 0.5" over the past few months of lifting which is annoying. That Barba which is a 43 (17") is really tight in the neck and isn't really appropriate for use with a tie. Luckily my Charvet bespoke shirts have a slightly roomier neck for comfort which is somewhat less roomy now but still fits.
