"Relaxed Fit"

I had to buy a new pair of jeans recently. What an uplifting experience. The jeans I bought are exactly the same size as I bought when I was in college (34 x 34 - if you must know). It's as if Levi Strauss made those 20 pounds I've added since college just vanish.

When I was in college various 'fits' either didn't exist or I just never noticed that I bought one particular 'fit'. Anyway the jeans I bought the other day are "relaxed fit", which is obviously fashion industry code for, "Yeah buddy, we know you've packed on the weight, but we're humoring you".
