I'm looking for a pair with a bit narrower leg opening than the Nudie Regular Ralph. Definitely not as tight/narrow as the APC New Standard. Basically like the Regular Ralph (or could even be slightly looser) but with a slightly smaller leg opening. (Basically to be worn with oxfords/loafers.)

Thanks in advance.

p.s. doesn't have to be dry/raw denim.

straight sven?

levi's 501 are generally less of a bootleg, try the 1947 lvc.
5EP's bootleg is very subtle, they also have a straight as well.

I want a higher rise, by the way, and a looser look than, say, a New Standard. These aren't for a mod/tighter look, but, rather, are to be worn in more conservative settings. They are to be "dressed up," so to speak. That said, I still want a high quality jean. Thanks.

The RB11 or RB6 might work. The leg opening on the latter is about the same as the RR.

Sounds like 5EP is the way to go for you.
Regular rise, which compared to the RR will seem quite high, generous but not loose cut in the leg, and subtle bootleg. Excellent quality denim IMO.

Is there a good online source for 5EP?
Can you suggest a model?
What's their sizing like? (I'm a 29 Nudie, 28 APC)

5EP size pretty much exactly equal to Nudie size.

The "Low Down Boot" in resin wash or raw is undistressed and has gone through only minimal processing. The rise is 10.25" or so on the sz. 29s.

The "Straight Down" in resin or raw is the same thing, except the cut is quite different - looser in the thighs and tapers towards the bottom instead of a slight bootcut. Also, the rise is a good 1.5 or 2 inches longer.

Our sponsor, Active Endeavors, carries 5EP.

He may have already purchased a pair in the past 4 years.
