Why would anyone care if some people like cargo shorts?

I'm wearing cargo shorts now. My wallet is kept in one of the lower pockets. Other times I carry a fetch toy wrapped in a plastic bag and leash for the dog. Granola bars fit in them as well. Come to think of it, I did carry a pair of pliers in them this morning while doing maintenance on my air compressor.

The fashion police can eff off!

I typically only wear them while on vacation. I don't care if I look like a tourist. Useful for rolls of film, light meter, and an extra lens or two. Rangefinder daylight lenses are quite small

"Cargo shorts are a staple of men's summer wardrobes." ... and will remain so esp. with OFGs. Of course not with fashion plate Jocose.

I attended a work picnic last week. I decided to wear my plaid shorts because they hide the sweat the best. There was a joke made at the picnic about stealing food and putting in your pockets. Someone said "you'd need cargo shorts"... and someone else said, "HA! If it was the 90's!" I just gulped and praised the lord for my plaid non-cargo shorts choice. Whew.

Cargo pockets are important for any man that carries stuff, but refuses to use a murse.

So I gotta say. I wear cargo shorts... but I never put anything in the pockets except a map if I happen to be hiking the AT and need a handy place for my map.

Yes, I am wearing cargo shorts as I type this and no, I don't know why that is bad.

I would probably wear cargo shorts, but I have enough respect for the general public that I don't subject them to the sight of my legs. I'll stick with cargo pants for now.

I wear cargo shorts practically every day from the first of June to the first of October unless I'm going on a long motorcycle ride or need to get really dressed up to go somewhere. The ones I'm wearing today are NATO camo, the others I have are khaki or olive. I normally wear the khaki ones to church.

I wear kilts. Does anyone honestly think I give a rodent's rectum what they think about cargo shorts?

I should clarify that my wallet is FAT with business cards in a desperate attempt to make $$$.

Generally, I only have enough money in it to buy a cup of joe a few times a week.

Cargo shorts are like the Siamese twin version of the Utilikilt, that is to say, two mini utilikilts joined at the hips.
Extra points if they are made of ripstop fabric.

First olive oil, now Utilikilts. Much more and I'll employ Alastair to verbally smite thee.

Is he available for hire? I didn't know that. I don't currently need his services, but that's some good info if it pans out.
