"There are much fewer studs on the actual shorts than pictured, which is disappointing, because it looks much less cool.. and a bit more like a studded dog collar than a grungy pair of shorts. The fray at the bottom is more consistent and shaggy, so will have to be altered manually to look like the photo. Otherwise, it's a nice sexy pair of short shorts. The studs make the waist band cool on the inside, so great for summer. Also, I never have to size up or down for anything, I'm a consistent 26, but for whatever reason in Free People's shorts I'm a 25 and they fit perfectly."
