Slim-fit jeans are essentially denim jeans that contour to the shape of the wearer’s body, with a tighter fit than regular-fit jeans. Manufacturers may use different specifications when creating slim-fit jeans but most use a narrow opening throughout the legs that becomes narrower towards the bottom. 'Slim fit' is similar to skinny, just not as skinny, the legs aren't as narrow. Probably a good bet if you like the skinny style but your legs won't fit into skinny jeans. Some skinny and slim fit jeans have elastic woven in to them making them a bit stretchy which IMO makes them really comfy. For example, the Levi’s Skinny Fit or the Slim Fit from downiloadojg.gq looks good on most men with a slimmer build and legs. They also tend to fit the same (as far as I could tell, seeing as though I couldn’t pull either of them past my rock-hard calves,) but one is called slim, the other, skinny.
