Which cut in Samurai would have the smallest leg opening? is 710 the slimmest option out there?

I used to be a 30" waist and now I'm about a 32". The challenge I'm having is that I need about a 30" inseam, and once I reduce the inseam I'm losing a lot of taper.

 

S711 is their slimmest cut in the thighs and some taper below the knee. S511 is next slimmest I think, and has larger thigh than the S711 and more taper below the knee and smaller hem without being too aggressive. Both have slimmer knee and hem than the S710. Check OD's website to compare measurements of different models, but keep in mind they have a reputation for not having the most accurate measurements. There's always variances between one pair and the next, one lot to the next, as well as method discrepancies. I've found their measurements are within 0.25 +/- of my own.

Thanks for the input and tips!

I think that’s due to the poor lighting, they are very dark navy. The s210xj denim is very similar to my 18oz pbj’s in texture and color, which was not what I was expecting based on the pics but I like it.

It looks like a Wrangler retro, right?

Today is day 300 of wearing my Samurai S710xx. I've had these jeans since mid-2012, no idea why it's taken so long to put so much wear into them. They're great jeans.

Well, actually, to be honest I've never liked heavyweight denim that much. I tend to prefer fabrics I can wear year round. If I had this cut in a 14-15 oz fabric I'd probably have worn them much more. These really look quite nice, though. I'll post some pics after I wear them about another two months/hit a full year of wear, and give them another wash at the end. Right now, I think I've washed them 5-6 times, but they don't look washed out (like some pairs tend to) at all.

I always have loved 710xx's. Always had to taper them though, there always seemed to be excess material on the shin area. The leg open felt good just too much above it

Anyone have the S710MOG from a couple of years ago? I used to have the S0500MOG, and they were my favorite pair, but are now too big due to some weight loss. Considering the 710's, but am concerned they'll be lighter in color than I desire. Would love to see pictures, and/or hear from anyone who owns this pair.

+1 to this! Also, how did they measure, anything special to consider compared to other models in this cut?

New model announced ”15oz tapered slim fit, so712XX”. If anyone orders I am curious to know the measurements.

A bit of a teaser, been wearing my S511SJC-AI daily since first week of December.  Wondering if these are actually Hank dyed as they are actually fading unlike my PBJ AI-003.

Does anyone know anything about the 712 cut that Samurai posted on Instagram the other day?  I'm hoping for a 710 top block/thighs but a a little slimmer below the knee.

Not much info around. It is not as slim as the 511 so I guess the top block of the 710 sounds right. It comes one-washed and with an 32 inseam.
