Bermuda Shorts

Definition: Bermuda Shorts

Bermuda Shorts

n. Tailored shorts that are long to above the knee. Bermuda shorts were created to solve a moral dilemma. In the 1940s, the island of Bermuda passed a law saying that women were not allowed to walk around with bare legs. So, knee-length shorts - worn with knee socks - were born.

Go to Bermuda with these J.Crew City-fit Wool Flannel Bermuda Shorts, $98.

Bermuda shorts were originally created for British Royal Navy to wear in tropical climate. Then it became commonly accepted business wear in Bermuda taking after the uniform of Royal Navy stationed in Bermuda... Sorry~ just had to say it cuz I'm Bermudian!
