Need Serious Sizing Help

Okay, I truly need some help with sizing so I can decide what to even start looking for. I like a tight fit, diesel Zatiny size 29 fits me perfectly, and Safado 30 fits perfectly until they stretch a hair, then they're slightly loose in the thighs

I tried on some nudie Slim Jim, size 29. The waist was very tight, although I could uncomfortably get into them...that could stretch though right? The thighs weren't as tight as I'd like considering they'd probably stretch.

I got some measurements which I believe are correct...
Waist: 32
Where jeans sit/Hips: 33 (or 33.5)
Thigh at crotch: 21.5"
Thigh slightly below crotch: 20"

I don't know what to look for to get that tight thigh, not squeezing but just about skin tight. I found some Naked and Famous that I LOVE, but they only come in weird guy cut, and the thigh measures 11 across (if i go with the 30" waist, which would be as tight as the nudies in the waist)

Any tips? Do I need to find a different cut?

The only raw jeans I can try on are a size 29 nudie slim jims, and size 30 J Brand, there's no other selvedge denim available within a 6-8 hour drive. And I need to buy a pair in the next day or so....badly.

Try the thin finn if you're set on nudie. The waist will stretch but generally thighs don't stretch a whole lot from my experience. I am not sure how much the waist will stretch as I bought by SJDJ to fit true to size. My thighs are larger than yours so I filled the size I went with. 3sixteen makes some pretty slim jeans so maybe check them out. The denim I found was pretty similar to nudie. I only wore mine a couple time before outgrowing them. If within a 6-8 hr drive is your only choice than you'll have to do with what you have else purchase online. The retailers are quite experienced with the denim they sell online and can give good fit advice as long as you provide the correct info if you decide to go that route.
