Blasphemy? "Yes, cargo shorts really are that bad — here's what you should wear instead"

    After my stint hauling propane back in the late 80s, no toilet could shock, or even register much with me. I have seen toilets in trucking terminals that seemed to be in some kind of competition for dirtiest toilet. I developed an iron bladder during that time. Little did the owners know, man I'm from Alabama, ALL of the toilets there back in the 40s were always at least HALF FULL! :lol::lol::lol:

    If you switch from cargo shorts to chino shorts, you may as well just shave your legs and wear a t-shirt with "slap me" on it.
    But hey as long as everything is in balance...

    Haha. Next time something doesn't balance, business insider will be my first stop.

    Just a quick question, let's say you got on an elevator and there was one other fellow on there going to the same floor. When the elevator stops and the door opens, how would you feel if the other fellow insisted you get off first?

    There's a lot riding on your answer...so take your time.

    Whoa, whole lotta male insecurity in this thread.

    Bulky cargo shorts have been considered a fashion faux-pas for a long time now. The author is merely pointing that out. It's snarky for sure, but what magazine column isn't?

    If this actually makes you angry enough to attack the author for his perceived lack of masculinity, maybe you're not all that confident in your own tastes in clothing. Or masculinity for that matter.

    Wear whatever you want to wear guys. Just don't foam at the mouth if public opinion doesn't agree with you.

    I love and wear cargos whenever the weather permits, but, I must admit, I see so many old guys wearing loose fitting cargos (and admittedly other shorts as well) that it makes me wonder if they wear them to hide their Depends.

    They're pretty popular around here......:)

    I've probably worn out more board shorts than any other variety of shorts over the years...


    Why do people need to use a prefix description before saying shorts anyway?... they are all just shorts, if they aren't longs. in my book....;)

    Which brings us to my thoughts on fashion: Can't all just get along.... pair of jeans and cut them off?

    Is it okay if I am naked except for an apron and slippers while making mimosas? Of course not, because I don't even need an apron! Yaaaaaay

    I have no desire to look preppy/Ivy League. I prefer cargo shorts. But...

    I see you have a basic misunderstanding about what we do here. Tonewood? Three saddle, six saddle? Those two subjects alone are enough to fuel a feeding frenzy not unlike a fresh cut of meat thrown over board to a gam of sharks in a mid day calm.

    Please wear the apron unless you intend to practice your juggling while you stir the mimosas.

    Excellent suggestion, PROVIDING you have a pair of long pants to cut off.

    It's all about the cargo. If you need the carrying capacity, just wear the chinos and carry a man-purse or wear a fanny pack. Done.
