Do you know how the style was introduced? It was not by some great designer or brand but actually – the British Military! It is said that the soldiers often complained of the full-clothed uniform due to the immense heat especially while being stationed in places like the Caribbean. So, the decision-makers decided to make a shorter version of the pants which came to be called the Bermuda shorts.

Why the name? These shorts were especially popular in Bermuda which was the vacationing hotspot for the elite of countries like the UK and the US. The vacationers took home these shorts and dubbed them as the “Bermuda shorts”.

So, why were they so popular in Bermuda? One of the reasons beside the chic look is – coz’ the Government imposed a strict rule banning short-shorts in public. Women were not allowed to wear anything above the knees outside of the beach – for which they could receive a ticked and be fined! But, the officials did manage to agree with the Bermuda shorts length – which falls just above the knee.
