    No disrespect to your lifestyle choice, but those shorts hold no attraction now I know this

    You must have been really hip to wear them in the early 90s, nobody had them back then, they became popular in the late 90s.

    What modern fishing gear do you recommend now?

    I worked with aome military type in the early 90s who alwjays wore camo combat trousers.... until summer when he cut them off into long shorts

    He preferred arctic camo, and said it would be v fashionable some day

    Not sure if that day came

    I've worn cargos since the 80's, when I first cut off and hemmed a pair of BDU pants that had the lower leg nearly torn off. I was really happy the first time I discovered essentially the same thing available off the rack.

    It must really grate for some you RealMen(tm) that Telecasters are pretty popular with chino-wearing city-boy flat-brimmed millennial hipsters

    I see the author lives in NYC, probably in his mother's basement in Queens. let him get his ass down to Florida for a year and see how he feels about cargo shorts then.

    Personally I thought the cargo short pic looked way better than the metrosexual alternative.

    I really feel the simplicity of your style. It seems like a relaxed rig. I put up with having to dress for school church lunch at my in laws second cousins easter party work.
    who in the f*casiato was I trying to impress. my social calender has a rule , If I have to dress for the event I'm not going. I went to a ordeal where I was being recognised as somebody that did , for once, the right thing. business suites were there, administrators, some folks from the city and others who thought that they were important, but in reality don't do sh*t for ghost town or dog town, back slapping and telling each other how important each other wants to be.... blue jeans t-shirt, motorcycle jacket, Birkenstocks, no socks. do I offend you? If I do I'm certainly glad to do so.
    Authticity, that's the juiciest part of being around other folks for me, just like my music or trash art.

    Less drip to clean up. The women folk like it.

    Anyone taking fashion advice from Business Insider clearly hasn't a clue about dressing themselves.

    I sold my boat in '93, gave away all my fishing gear by '95 and took up golf for the second time. I had Shimano rods and reels. Great stuff.
    Callaway irons, Cobra woods, and Odyssey putter.

    I'm sitting here (no pun, not peeing) scratchin my head, wondering how in the heck you can hit the little bug you just found crawling in your house - wrong place, wrong time. Sittin' ... I'd be skeered it'd grab on 'n' crawl up where it's warm...

    Definitely worth a few drips. Honestly, I suggest to our guests, especially the ladies, that they might want to go upstairs to use the facilities, or maybe out in the yard. My downstairs potty has that gas station chic going for it. I clean it once every three months, even if it don't need it.
