“Jen Anderson, a 45-year-old freelance writer in Brooklyn, N.Y., said she used to tease her husband gently about his fashion choices, until he made a purchase that crossed the line: denim cargo shorts. That was “just too far,” she said.

Through what Ms. Anderson described as “strong mocking,” she convinced him to return the shorts. She said she doesn’t like the idea of being seen in public with her husband when he’s wearing cargo shorts, which make him look like “a misshapen lump.”

“It’s a reflection on me, like ‘How did she let him out the door like that?’ ” she said
She might have daddy issues or something.

Clearly this is next-level. Not only do you have four generous pockets, you can attach additional items to the D-rings and shoulder straps.

ATTN:

Now is the time to buy cargo shorts. You'll find many summer end clearance sales both online and in brick and mortars.

Head on over to jcpenney.com. Their store brand shorts are a steal.

You can all thank me later.

I just ordered two pair of cargo pants.

They're like cargo shorts, but for winter.

:lol: Obvious? Not to me. Let's hear it. I knew what I was getting into when I posted it. A good ribbing is part and parcel of the fun of CPS.
