Flannel Trousers - Palm Beach Suits

For the seaside flannel trousers and blazers are general. Light coloured linen suits, originating in the United States and known as 'Palm Beach' suits are also worn in the last years. Very often, especially towards the end of the last year, shorts become more popular than trousers, and bush jackets, modelled on the lines of tropical military uniforms and made of a strong cotton or twill, can be worn without shirts beneath. They resemble shirts in having shirt type collars and can have short sleeves with cuffs. Polo or roll necked shirts are quite often worn with casual linen cotton trousers. For bathing, the one piece costumes that have the sides so cut out as to form a Y shape at the back are gradually superseded by swimming trunks.
