Hogleg makes a valid point. All the OFG's in my lineage wouldn't have been caught dead in shorts.

A directed issued uniform for desert combat. Not a clothing choice. When were you last in a desert combat zone? No such uniforms directed or issued. We learned better.

Man, you should have heard the wailing from my boys a month ago when I instructed them to wear pants for our hike in the desert. I also made them wear long sleeves.

You are all insufferable slaves to fashion convention until, and only until, you go out to a public beach or pool with your speedo on.

I thought I had finally surpressed that memory, but this brought it back. On our honeymoon, a senior citizen in the next balcony was wearing a speedo and two eldery women were with him not wearing much more. If only there was some way to wash my memories.

That reminds me. Even my swim shorts are cargo style.

Never owned a pair of cargo shorts. Will now.

I do not own cargo shorts. I do own a couple pair of cargo pants. They are handy, I admit. I can drop a small handgun in one and extra mag, knife, and flashlight in the other. Or pipe, pouch, lighter, and pipe tool in one pocket if I'm carrying a sub-compact IWB. It just depends on where I am working on a given day.
It sounded better when the voices in my head were saying it.

There are many terrible attributes of the lowly cob. Not the least of them is that it makes you look like a doof.

Yeah, we've seen it already. We know all too well what he looks like with a speedo and lots of guns and hair.
