By men in desk jobs whose function it was to see their soldiers and navy personnel were appropriately but lightly attired for duty at British Army garrisons and Royal Navy bases in tropical and sub-tropical parts of the old British Empire.
With their already-issued tropical wear white shorts and long white stockings, the Royal Navy were probably the first to invent Bermuda shorts. They probably wore them when they founded the yacht clubs in the City of Hamilton and Town of St. Officers of British Army units serving in all parts of the old British Empire and elsewhere soon adopted - from the Royal Navy, not from Bermuda - the summer military version of the shorts, in khaki, with khaki knee length socks and highly polished brown shoes - or what became known in military slang as "brothel creepers," soft suede ankle high boots.
