I am presently in Arkansas, in the middle of packing and moving my Mom's household. For this trip, I broke out some old cargo shorts I had shoved in a back closet, and two days ago wore a pair for the first time in several years. Though not without some mild but genuine sense of failure and distaste, I do consider physical work in the Arkansas heat to be a sufficient excuse.

I did, at least, bring my pipe, so that is a consolation.

Cargo shorts were cool once.

I wear them nearly every day. Perfect Arizona Sonoran Desert wear.

I haven't worn cargo shorts or pants in years. After reading this thread I feel like I need to buy a pair of cargo shorts. All those pockets were always so handy!

I was at the Bass Pro the other day to replace some worn-through items and discovered my favorite style of cargo shorts also comes in pants! :chili:

I can't read the whole article without subscribing, but the gist seems to be some women don't care to see their men wear cargo shorts, therefore nobody should wear cargo shorts.

Solid argument you've got there, counselor.

Thank goodness my woman doesn't mind me wearing cargo shorts...and she is the only woman that I care what she thinks

“You should have your cargo shorts on.”

Yes she did. She didn’t want to carry it anymore.

True gentleman, you are. Good job.

If a cargo shorts wearing smiley existed, I would post it here.

“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
