    Wow...this is one of the more, um, "uninformed" posts to appear here in a while.

    I disagree. IMO, they just look tropical. I recall reading once that such outfits were common in Australia but no recent Australian can verify it. Maybe it was a Darwin thing.

    The Bermuda guys look a hell of a lot better to me than the man in the OP. Not sure my bony knees would allow me to pull it off, but at least there's some tradition to it, Lebron and Bruno Mars notwithstanding.

    Clearly you haven’t travelled much, nor are you aware of traditional dress in Bermuda.

    When an item of clothing is named for a particular country/region, I’d say it’s pretty much tradition and the norm.

    Just because they are white men doesn't mean we shouldn't be sensitive to their cultural norms!

    The Bermuda shorts with jacket look always reminded me of school uniforms. Back when boys wore blazers and short pants. And I suppose that's where the tradition originated. It's a very "boyish" look. The picture the OP posted is as far removed from that tradition as you can get.

    Side rant: I can't stand auto-correct and predictive text. Why in the world would my tablet make me type "shorticulture"??:badpc:

    How does one go about earning a PhD in shorticulture?
