Stupid question

I won a pair of shorts on ebay that were listed as 'boyfriend' and when I got them, they do in fact say Jimmy on the tags but I thought Jimmy Jimmy shorts were folded hems? These are raw hems and kind of ratty, if that makes any sense. I know Silverlake can have the rawer hem. So, maybe I got some weird hybrid or maybe they had been a pair of full length jeans that were cut? They still have the back tag BUT don't have the credit card pocket in the back.

ORRRRRR, maybe fakes? I can't post pictures at work and there were only 2 in the auction, but it's #330582325940. I can take pictures later tonight and post to get a better idea.

Oh, also love the fact that they are listed as sz 29 and when I got them, they are 27 but THANK GOODNESS they actually fit, although by no means like a boyfriend pair.

jimmy jimmy shorts have raw hems.
eta: just wanted to add that they should also be stitched so they don't fray more.

Thanks!! Here we just discussed fake Paige jeans a few weeks and the more I thought about it, the more I was worried they were possibly fake. They are stitched so I can at least trim some of the hem to make it more even. I'm just happy at this point that they fit. I pulled them out of the package and my heart sank when I saw they were size 27.

Wow, I was totally watching those but the seller wouldn't ship to Canada. Thank goodness as there would have been NO way I would have fit into a size 27.

Thankfully they fit for you - I would have been pretty upset about the incorrect listing.

Sarah, you may have fit them. I am a pretty solid 29 in Paige (have only fit into 1 out if 2 pairs if 28s I've tried) and they fit me. They are not baggy or fit like boyfriend shorts, but I know a lot of girls here have sized down on their boyfriend fit jeans. I havent left FB yet; I'm waiting for her to come back from vacation to email her about it.

Yeah, I am a solid 30 in Paige and I own my Jimmy Jimmy shorts (2 pairs) in size 29. In both of them, I could definitely wear a 28,

On a whim, I purchased a pair of 27 Jimmy Jimmy jeans (figuring if the shorts fit, maybe the jeans would too). Not going to be too upset if they are too small since I only paid $5.99 + shipping!! They showed up today so I get to try on some new jeans and shoes tonight.

In my experience, you can size down on Jimmy Jimmy but NOT on Jimmy Jimmy skinny
