We've purchased these jeans in Wal-Mart several times so we knew what to order, and specifically to order the relaxed fit. When my husband put these on, he could barely pull them up his thighs because they were so right. He said they felt more like a regular fit, or slim fit in the leg. Once he got the pulled up, the waist was fine but again snug in the hips. He thinks once he wears them for a few days, they'll loosen up, but they're already supposed to be loose in the thigh area. Disappointed in these.
