I think 2t is meant for kids 2-3y/o. The 24m is slightly smaller, and meant for LO's up to 24m.
Technically, for a certain height and weight, depending in the brand. Usually 2T is for the average 2 year old. I don't go by age when dressing my girls or I'd be hooped. They tend to fit ahead, ie. dd1 is ten and wears size 12-14 or ladies xs, down to dd4, she had a growth spurt and is in 3t pants and 3/4 tops. My nephew is just the opposite, he fits size 4 for most things at age 5 1/2.
ETA: I look up the height and weight charts for the brands, since they vary. From your original question, is two before or after age two, etc, size two is for a two year old, three for three, etc, for the average child. There isn't a rule that you must put them in the size for their age or anything.

this! 24 months is shorter and wider where 2T is a little longer and leaner. Also you won't find snaps down the legs or anything to complicated since they start to potty train and need something that comes off quick.
Manateearmz:Depends on the kid. DD Is almost 19 months and fits into 24 month clothes. I'm assuming she will go into 2t a little after she hits 2.
This is us, too.
DS 1 was still wearing some of his 2t bottoms when he was 3. He was wearing size 5 shirts when he was 3.5. The sizes are just numbers. I go by the weight and height listed on the tag.
Ds2 is almost 16 months and wears 18 month in some brands and 24 in others,
I think it's for age 2 but it depends on the brand. A is wearing 24 months in some brands (Carters, Osh Kosh), 2T in some (Old Navy), and 18 - 24 in others (Gap, TCP). He's 20 months, about 34" and 25 lbs.
