I think that it is different in everyone's mind what exactly &quot;relaxed&quot; and &quot;loose&quot; mean. To me, relaxed implies fatass jeans, that are meant for people who want a classic shape, but need a little more ass and leg room (but not in the athletic-build way) and loose implies a jean that is meant to have a baggier overall look, but still looks right on a skinny guy. That's my read on it, but I bet you will get a bunch of opinions.

Mostly marketing mumbo jumbo, IMO - &quot;relaxed&quot; plays well with the overweight, comfort-oriented middle-aged crowd, while &quot;loose&quot; is more appealing to a younger, skater/hip hop sort of demographic. Same meaning, though - roomier than a regular fit.
