The problem I have (and I'm sure I'm not the only one) with the slim fit is that they're too tight in the thighs and calves for me. Yeah, I can blame the decades of cycling, running and such, but the straights are where it's at for me when it comes to Gustin's fit. My 34 straights fit damned near perfectly, well, my Super Lights anyway. I still can't button the top button of the Super Heavyweights... I'm still working on losing another 15 pounds or so, so we'll see what happens as I get slimmer. My absolute favorite fitting pair of jeans I have are the Roys I picked up in a trade. Those things are the perfect "slim straight" for me.
