Some of the men fashion designers have launched their 2008 Spring Collection and for some of leading men fashion designers' brands like DKNY and Ralph Lauren have focus on Men's Bermuda and Men's Capri Pants.

So here is some simple explanation on how to differentiate between Men's Bermuda and Men's Capri Pants.

Men's Bermuda Shorts

Men Bermuda Shorts are a particular type of short trousers, now widely worn as casual attire by both men. The hem can be cuffed or un-cuffed, around one inch above the knee.

They are so-named because this men fashion style has been made populated in Bermuda, a British Overseas Territory, where they are considered appropriate men business attire when made of suit-like material and worn with knee-length socks, a dress shirt, tie, and blazer. They are available in a variety of colors, including many pastel shades as well as darker shades.

True Men's Bermuda shorts are not to be confused with "clam diggers" or "capri pants" extending below the knee. Cargo shorts may be a similar length, but are typically baggy or less "tailored" than Bermuda shorts.

Men's Capri Pants

Men Capri Pants are a style of pants usually worn in hot weather. They are designed to end mid-calf or just below the calf. More recently, the length of the pants has been shortened to just below the knee in some designs. Though capri pants are most popular with women, they have become popular among men fashion world in many tropical countries and Europe.
