I'm a slim guy with approximately a 30'' waist. In the past, I've gone with jeans that are very fitted, but not to the degree that I'd call them tight. For this next pair, I'm interested in something more relaxed, but by no means baggy. A good standard cut with a mid-rise and relatively straight leg would do nicely. Here's the problem: I swim in anything that is marketed is "straight fit" or "relaxed," so I've had a rather tough time figuring out what I want. I'm slanted more towards Japanese brands at this moment, but I don't want to deal with a huge rise. Ideally, nothing more than 10.5'' in the front. I'd also like to use a proxy, as I want to get tabs and arcs if I am to go with the Japanese route. Anyone have suggestions, either for proxy or directly ordering from Rakuten, and more important, which jean? Yes.. I am in similar position to the guy above.. and I don't want the jean too slim either. I was recommended the Flat head F380.. but I am not sure that is for me. Suggestions?
