I say, if a man wants to wear something, he should just go ahead and stop being such a nancy about it.

Except for cargo shorts.

I wear them nearly everyday outside of work or some other occasion that require better attire. When I get home from work, I put them on. I'm a gun dog trainer nearly every day now. The cargo pockets hold check cords, fetch toys, electronic collars, transmitters and treats for our walks and training sessions. Don't leave out the cargo pants! They're good too, as are overalls and carpenter jeans. :D

Cargo shorts are the best shorts.

It seems like they were popular sometime around the mid-80's, at about the time parachute pants (the cargo short predecessor?) were popular. You could put a house key or maybe a $10 bill in them, but not much more.

Good times.

Post hoc fallacy.

Parachute pants are anathema.

Here's a PSA for the young ones.

I used to wear parachute pants. I'd wear them before I'd wear cargos.

Man. This teen punk named Mick had the best pair of parachute pants. Black. Pockets everywhere. And they had these really cool tear drop shapped zipper pulls. I was in grade school and I very clearly coveted those pants. My mother never could find a pair like them for me. I also coveted that guys checkered Vans. I got a pair of those.

I go with a strap vest for this.

Well, maybe a guy my age looks ridiculous no matter what. :pipe3:
