Welcome to the Isle of Devils where our Summer traditions are the highlight of the year. From Carnival to Cup Match, we have a little something for everyone to enjoy.
I am the designer behind TABS – The Authentic Bermuda Shorts and my summer collection draws inspiration from Bermuda’s Gombey dancers. Their stunning costumes are decorated with mirrors, tassels, and other small items; each one unique to its owner.
The vibrant hues of hibiscus flower and the local chromis fish, are just two of our new colours of Bermuda shorts for 2017. I’m also excited about our Gombey swim short which is a digital image of the dancers printed on a quick dry swim short. Pair with one of our new polo shirts and you are island ready!
We’re not the only ones who love the Gombeys. Sophia Fortuna has done a range of swimsuits available at A2Z Fashions and I love local artist April Branco’s pastel studies of Gomebys; she really captures their energy and colours. Local jeweller, Rebecca Little, has also expanded her line of jewellery for TABS to include the vibrant colours of the Gombeys. From tassel necklaces to pom pom earings this eclectic mix is sure to make you feel up beat!
If you’re looking to take part in this Bermudian tradition, join in with the Gombey troupes at Harbour Night. Get caught up in the infectious drumbeat and sharp blasts of the leader’s whistle then refuel with a glass of Bermuda’s own Rum Swizzle… just don't forget to wear your Bermuda shorts.
Owner & Founder
Happy New Year from Team TABS!
After the hustle and bustle of the holiday shopping rush, things have quietened down a little on Reid Street, but at TABS, we are gearing up for an exciting year.
Our shorts fit true to size i.e. if you wear a 34 in your trousers you will be a 34 in TABS. If in doubt go bigger, TABS look great with a belt!
Size 34 waist has a waist circumference of 36", 11.5” rise and 8.5” inseam.
All traditional Bermuda shorts have a 8.5" inseam.
These shorts fit true to size but are slightly more fitted than TABS Bermuda Shorts. If in doubt go bigger, there is a hidden draw string to adjust the waist.
Size 34 waist has an 11” rise and 8” inseam.
Our polos are a mix between an American and European fit that is form fitting. Size up if you prefer your polo's roomier.
|SIZE||CHEST (cm)||NECK (cm)||WAIST|
Size M has a 70cm front length, 73cm back length.
Our women's shorts run slightly small so if you're in-between sizes we suggest sizing up!
Please note there is 3% spandex in them so the fabric will stretch and hug your curves in all the right places.
Size 4 waist has a 9” rise. A = 29” waist, B = 9” inseam and C = 18.5” leg circumference.
Size 4 waist has a 8.5” rise and 4” inseam.
Our Kids' Bermuda Shorts range feature an interior adjustable button to ensure a room-to-grow fit.
