Define “Relaxed” – Oh, Wait. Don’t Bother. It Doesn’t Help.

I was at LL Bean today, and was trying to figure out what the difference was between RELAXED FIT and NATURAL FIT. I wasn’t quite sure what they meant by “Relaxed”, but then I realized it didn’t matter, because they used the same term for both.

They defined RELAXED FIT as:
Loose through the hips and thighs”

And they defined NATURAL FIT in the exact same words, except instead of calling them LOOSE, they called them RELAXED:
Relaxed through the hips and thighs”

So which one is MORE “Relaxed”???

FYI: I bought the Natural Fit.
