Actually, I think this might not be a mistaken apostrophe (although not exactly good grammer). They mean they will hem your jeans and what will show is the original hem of your jeans (aka the “jean’s hem”). It’s a fancy sewing trick. Really:
Wouldn’t the original hem of your jeans be your “jeans’ hem”?
And, it’s grammar, not grammer.
