    I still have the two pairs I bought ten years ago. At the rate I wear shorts, they should be good for at least another five.

    I need to get myself into a similar situation. I was getting pretty good exercise up til late fall, despite not going to work all year. Even so, I’d managed to gain about ten pounds.

    Since winter hit I’ve built some pretty amazing callouses on my backside, and gained another 15. I just sit around watching movies and eating my feelings. If I don’t do something soon, I’m gonna have to go full Homer Simpson and get a mumu.

    Good idea to buy a batch when you find what you like(!). There's a type of Columbia shorts I've worn exclusively for a decade and they only made them for five or six years... Time to find something new. :confused:

    Was already cranking down the belt on the old ones. Now someone could damn near climb into them with me. I've lost 40 lbs since I bought the old ones.

    I miss the old cotton long cargo shorts. For an old guy, they are a must. The new ones at Costco are made of some stretchy material from the bowels of Indonesia. Same as those stretchy jeans they tried to sell for years and failed. When they brought back the cotton Kirkland jeans, they flew off the shelf.

    Tight form fitting stretchy material on an old guy is not a pretty sight. It offends the wearer as well as the observer.

    yeah my regimen definitely dropped off with the cold weather. which is dumb. I have exercise equipment that i bought to prevent myself from ever wasting money on a club membership- I see this stuff around here unused and it reminds me that if I'm not going to use it here, in my house, i'm sure as hell not gonna drive to the health club :p

    Some of you might need to up your levels of theme dressing. I keep ordering same cargo shorts and pants from Kuhl even though I no longer get the same discount. They last longer.

    Kuhl accommodates 3 different body types and makes same function in heavy duty cotton, quick dry, and stretch. It's the ultimate in fit plus you can piss people off or embarrass your kids with such subtlety for always wearing same thing and them not realizing not really.

    I've got the theme dressing and embarrass your loved ones so dialed that I wear the stretch cargo shorts over bike liners and for a short swim.

    Got plenty for my cowboy boots. Haven't degenerated to the point of wearing socks with the sandals yet. Got to have some semblance of style.

    My cargo shorts no longer fit me. I don't need new shorts. I need a new waistline.
