Why would anyone roll 3 inch into a hem? That makes absolutely no sense. They do indeed fold the denim to the inner side of the leg (though I can't say if it's a single or double fold) and then chainstitch over the folded denim, to finish the hem.
No way someone's gonna fold 3 inches of denim in there. More like maybe 1 inch.
I think they just had a "Let's Drink" sale at SelfEdge when Biff decided to get his jeans hemmed there.
