I don´t know how readily available in US this are, but you should check Montura pants. They are especially known for their pants and are quite big all over the Alps.

'Trojan' doesn't have the same connotations in the UK, for those who're thinking ME designers might be overdoing the form-fitting aspect...

I saw these on sale at Mountain Gear as well.

Here's an interesting video from your friends at ProLiteGear regarding treated down compared to non-treated down (not exactly sure where the incentive/bias lies here): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDx14xueEJA

Looking at these and your description of them, I second the Montura pants. Similar fit. very much climbing/Alpine oriented in their patterns and detailing if that means something. I have a pair of Verto Free's and they fit like no other '60s 501. Good detailing, DWR and no faff. There are different warmths/weights but I just take the thinnest one and adjust with base layers.
