When in Rome....
If my first couple of days here were like the first day at school, then today I've actually dressed like I'm going to school! Yep, I've taken the plunge and bought myself some Bermuda shorts plus the mandatory knee-length socks and have worn them to work today.
Like most people new to the island, I was initially in the 'no never' camp, blimey it took me two years to get used to not wearing a tie to work, but most men do it and well, frankly in this weather, it allows everything to breathe more easily!
Bermuda's national dress for men, the shorts can be worn for all occasions and I notice are actually made in Canada, as are the long socks, and come in various colours. Mine today are probably best described as salmon pink - well why not?
Upon investigation, the English Sports Shop on Front Street has the best, and most authentic choice and cheapish too at $50. I might be back in there later adding to my collection, although to be honest I haven't a clue what I look like as we haven't yet got any full-length mirrors in our house!
