From the Islands of Bermuda into your wardrobe – the origins of Bermuda shorts

Bermuda shorts as we know them were named after the Islands of Bermuda. They were originally worn by the military. The British soldiers stationed on the Islands of Bermuda felt too hot in their long trousers in the tropical climate, so they simply cut them off just above their knees.

Their practicality and usefulness quickly became accepted, and the trousers were manufactured large-scale. From there, these airy trousers travelled once around the world. Traditionally, they end around 5cm above the knee and are straight-cut. Due to their length, Bermudas are perfect companions for the summer.

The combination all-rounder for the summer

These days, Bermudas are available in a wide range of different designs, and their designers play with various fabrics, shapes and lengths. Shirts emphasise the wide cut of the trousers. Combine them with a casual T-shirt for a casual outfit that will nevertheless look presentable. If you are going for a smart everyday look, a polo shirt is a great choice.

However, unlike the mental picture Bermudas inspire in most people, they can also be styled smart for the evening or the office. Bermuda designs that look like short suit trousers are certainly acceptable office wear and look great. Slightly more daring men can also wear Bermuda shorts with a suit jacket and tie, and loafers. The style break of casual shorts contrasted with a smart suit jacket results in a completely new look. For evening events, Bermuda shorts made from a finer fabric are a good choice; they can then be combined with a smart shirt .
