I'm in the same boat and as such was thinking April77 Dischords from a few seasons back but unfortunately I can't find a source for these now. Dior Homme is also another alternative at-least for what I'm looking for ie slim lowrise cords.

My best pair is from J.Crew. They are slim-fit and look great.

Stay clear of Martin and Osa - their slim fit is too high-rise, though it has some nice details.

Other than the Levi's store, I have yet to see any other stores that sell them and that's including online stores.

Heads up, the 514s only come in 30 or 32 inch inseams for some reason. I don't know why but it's pretty stupid.

Yeah they don't look like they're low rise or slim fit, I like the brick ones though.

Edit: They're relaxed fit, boot cuts hence no go.....
