How to Wear Men’s Bermuda Shorts this Summer

Dating all the way back to the early 1900s, men’s Bermuda shorts have become a summer staple on a man’s wardrobe. These shorts sit around 2.5cm from the knee, with a fit that is more tailored than other styles of shorts. They take their name from their country of origin – Bermuda – a British Overseas Territory. In 1914, a Bermudian tea shop owner Nathaniel Coxon began to hem the uniform pants of his employees, making them more comfortable, especially in the heat. The British Army, which was stationed in Bermuda during World War 1, soon adopted the shorts, which were ideal for tropical and warmer climates. In the years to follow, the shorts made their way into sportswear options, and men began to wear them on their vacations.

Bermuda shorts are worn all over the world, not only for leisurewear but also as a smart-casual option. Keep reading to get our tips on how to wear men’s Bermuda shorts this summer.
