The silk is more than 30 years old, but the ties are freshly made. You will not find these ties anywhere else. Have a look …
I am not sure who makes Charles’ suits these days, but Welsh & Jefferies is his military tailor. Welsh & Jefferies is a rather small tailor shop run by James Cottrell and Malcolm Plews. Among others, they employ Yingmei Quan, who won this year’s Golden Shears Contest.

Bankers and other businessmen adopted the short trousers in the 1920’s and Bermuda appropriated the name.
That’s how I feel about them too: Bermuda shorts are for the holidays. Leave it to the Bermudians to wear them to work.
I can’t vouch for the length of a pair of original Bermuda shorts. I’ve had instances where they were 2 – 3 cms above the knee, but other sources, for instance a couple of the images above, show that they are more likely to end 7 – 8 cms above the knee.
But it isn’t always so important what the original looks like. Choose the length that suits you the best.
