Can you recommend a jean cut between a Levi's 550 and 541?

Having tried far too many cuts I settled on a 34 x 32 Levi's 550 to fit
my small waist large thigh proportions comfortably. I know these are
typically "dad jeans" but anything other than these "baggy" cuts end up
becoming skinny jeans on my body. 34 x 32 is a baggy, about an inch on
both waist and thigh, but when I tried the 33 x 32 it was too tight. I
tried several to make sure it was not due to Levi's varying/poor sizing,
all were the same, the one inch sizing difference made a very large
difference. 541 34 x 32 was a little too tight, the fit around the
thighs was better but a little too close for comfort but the front made a
strange baggy/pouch shape. 550 also had the advantage of availability
in non-stretch which the 541 generally lack so I have settled for now
and may try to shrink a second pair if nothing else exists. Any
suggestions?

The Unbranded “UB601” may be an option and is priced similarly to department store denim. Their Naked & Famous “Easy Guy” is a slightly more expensive option.

Todd Shelton offers the ability to custom configure denim. Configuration options include several “upper block” and “lower block” widths.
