German term or phrase: 7/8-Hose
What about 7/8? It is a caption of the fashion page in magazine. So It must not be size, right? I don't think it is about the length either, because the length varies from picture to picture. Could you give me an idea what it refers to?

Explanation:
Those are the pants that do not go down your leg completely but stop somewhere above the ankles and mid-calf. They are the newest fad this year. The length may vary a bit, but this is the meaning.

This website says: 7/8 hosen sind ein wenig zu kurze Freizeithosen - i.e. they are just a wee bit short.
