Oh yeah...I forgot. You have that vestigial tail...
About a month back when I was riding the metro and it was very hot, I noticed that men under 35 or so don't wear cargo shorts anymore.
Not Woodman's, gosh no. Much more diversity in the crowd that goes there, in nearly every sense of the word. East side Pic-N-Save. Which for you, should make it obvious.
Yeah, mostly like those, but not suede, assuming I'm seeing the picture correctly.
Regular shorts are not part of the uniform. Only cargoes.
Usually, I wouldn't notice at all what people are wearing. It's just in this case that it was so remarkably... uniform.
Oh great! I'm exempt! I wonder if the OP will agree.
I am of the demographic that you are speaking of. Luckily I have escaped the "uniform" over the past few years. No more cargo shorts for me (I did wear that uniform for a few years)
Finding non cargo related shorts is harder than you would think.
That just sounds like a bunch of guys who are contractors, HVAC, or are in the construction industry.
You know what? I used to, back in the days when I actually worked for a living had some of them things. I looked in the closet, and I thought they were a lighter color, than I remembered, but on closer inspection I realized that was just dust.
I would wear cargo shorts...except I only have a wallet and car keys. If I needed lots of pockets I'd surely wear them but it just seems illogical to wear them if you have no need. Right? Do some folks feel that it's somehow attractive to have pockets all over? I'm open to suggestions...
I'm sorry to hear of your condition, and hope you improve enough to shop for some cargoes soon.
See what it is, when you wear cargoes with pockets and don't put anything in 'em it's kind of like a badge. You're saying I don't give a sh*t what anybody else thinks and I don't have to justify anything I wear, or do, or anything else. I could even buy whatever the hell kind of guitar I wanted without having to ask anybody's opinion. Besides, you could still split the crotch out of them and pretend they're kilts with pockets!
You either forgot to mention your cell phone or... OMG! Are you running around all over town without a phone? Talk about a nonconformist, and you're worried about not needing pockets! Uh, Uh, I'm getting a case of the VAPORS!
Just as I thought! You don't have anything but car keys and wallet either...
Anti cargo look:
I don't even want to imagine what key words got you THAT!
You know some people would say people say that cargoes need balance in the universe, and those boys right there are IT. Some might not say that too!
I've been a jeans guy my whole life. Work was steel toed engineer/biker boots (no I don't ride). Shirts were Ts given by vendors until destroyed or Standard Dickees short sleeve work shirt. Of work, clean jeans, pocket T, polo, or buttondown tail out non bumched. Shorts were reserved for summer. Black Vans or Harachis. Sometimes a black slip on.
As I've aged being on my feet I've has to wear heavy duty sopport hose to my thigh both legs. This ment loose fit jeans, until it gets hot then there's the tan cargos. Still pocket Ts, polo, golf, or button down, tail out.
Shoes are Vans, soft fit Skeetchers, slide in sandals.
Hats, trucker/ball cap are only grease/ weld barriers for me. I'll wear a flat cap scaly most of the time. No uniform here.
Unless you go athletic.
Some probably were. The other 2 major professions for that particular demographic would be farm and white-collar.
Captain Kangaroo found it useful. Then again, in the 80's, some found it attractive to have zippers all over.
This made me laugh but I am not going to press the Like button!
Top knots... GD Top Knots
I remember in the '80s the uniform du jour was blue jeans, denim jacket and concert tee. Now I just lost the jacket, added a ball cap (since moving to TX) and it's not necessarily a concert tee.
