Fit differences between Silverlake and Jimmy Jimmy shorts

Does anyone know the main differences between these 2 shorts? I know that the Jimmy Jimmy will be a looser fit, but wanted to see which had a lower rise and how the inseams compared.

Thanks in advance

Silverlake is a tighter fit and the inseam is around 3" I'd say, it's more of a short short. Jimmy jimmy is more of a boyfriend short in that it fits looser and the inseam is probably 7" (not at home so can't give you exact measurements), they're also cute worn cuffed up once so that it fits shorter at 5 or 6". Jimmy jimmy is def more comfortable in my opinion. Silverlake def has the shorter rise between the two. Hope that helps!

Yep, JJ will have a longer inseam and definitely fit looser everywhere. I was thinking the inseam was more like 5" (comprable to 7fam Ranae shorts) but can't remember for sure. The inseam on all my Silverlakes is about 3" and they are by FAR my favorite Paige shorts, but I also like short shorts.

Thank you all for your responses!! I definitely like a looser fit in the shorts, so I'm thinking to get the Jimmy Jimmys or else size up in the Silverlake. I had to size down 2 sizes in the boyfriend jeans, so should I do the same in the Jimmy Jimmy shorts?

It depends how loose or tight you want them. I got a pair of Jimmy Jimmy shorts 2 sizes smaller then usual, they are still comfy and don't feel too tight, but they kind of lost that bf fit/look.
