Ive searched and found a few pics but not many of people WEARING new standards. Im searching for another pair of dry jeans (not too happy with my Flare Glenns) and these are currently very high on my list but Ive only seen a few pics of people wearing them so im having a difficult time deciding if these are right for me. Any pics would be great!

12 and 15 months, respectively. The second picture shows the color a lot better. Obviously, the knee wasn't that baggy in the beginning.

Really nice pair of jeans Metal Circus. How much did you size down?

Those may be more tapered than I want. The Rescue is more of a straight leg correct?

Thanks for the pics

The Rescue is a straight leg - it is also about an inch higher rise. I much prefer the New Standard (although I normally like a true straightleg or slight bootcut.) The tapering is very subtle (about 1/4 to 1/2 inch tighter at the ankle than at the knee) and not at all apparent if you are 1) skinny (wear a NS 30 or lower, i.e. waist size 32 or lower), and/or 2) have a bit of stacking. I think that unless Metal Circus had his hemmed, he is a pretty tall guy, since the inseam ranges from 34-36 (totally random), and he has considerably less stacking than I do at 5'11".
