You have to buy a whole five-pack, though.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

I have cargo shorts. I'd prefer not to wear them because they are dumb. They add all sorts of added weight for no apparent reason. I have shorts without cargo pockets and aren't old man khaki shorts. There's a happy medium. I bought some shorts at surf shops that weren't cargo and looked normal (not overly skater shorts). Much better than cargo.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

I like cargo shorts because I can carry smokes in them. And beers. So I can grab three beers at a time and just walk around the house drinking them.

I think cargo shorts look dumb with a button down.

Cargo shorts are casual but sloppy...while shorts without cargo pockets are casual cleaner and dressier looking.
Shorts with a button down is pretty douchey, sorry.

If you are wearing shorts, you are casual so nothing more than a polo shirt. If you have to go to the extreme of wearing a button down shirt, throw on some pants. There are lots of lightweight pants available at stores who sell quality clothing. I'm actually wearing some linen pants from Banana Republic right now because its in the 90's today.

Shorts in general terms are casual clothing. Its almost equivalent to wearing sweatpants or pajama bottoms. OK for backyard, beach, baseball games, outdoor stuff. But for general, everyday clothing, no. For instance, I would NEVER wear shorts to work - even when it's 95 degrees. I would never wear shorts out to dinner unless its some lobster roll joint at the beach. I never would wear shorts somewhere where I need to interact with other adults (except like cookouts and the above type scenarios). They just look sloppy and juvenile on older people.

But you LIVE on the beach more or less so all this stuff goes out the window.

I'm glad I work in a field and company where you can dress "unprofessional."

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

No, not for douchebags generally, but it depends on the style of short and how they are worn, as is the case with most everything fashion related.

I wore shorts to work for a couple of weeks. But I had had ankle surgery, it was August, and I was wearing one of those boots that goes up to your knee.

The only people in NYC you will see wearing shorts are tourists. New Yorkers absolutely refuse to wear shorts, even in sweltering weather. New Yorkers also do weird shit like put creases in jeans.

Not true. Hipster boys love their short-short cut-off jeans, and I am forever grateful for it.

Nothing like wearing jeans in 90 degree, muggy, nasty, swelteringly-humid summer weather. The sheer amount of anal wine you're gonna be wringing out later...

Most tech companies are like that, I don't see how it's pathetic at all. Nothing better then being able to wear comfortable clothes at work.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

Tropical casual, Beach casual, Key West casual... dressing upscale while still in shorts. A pretty common look down here.

But in the office? Typical business casual/formal. Which is just STUPID for this climate, in my opinion. I went to a stuffy private K-12 with a really stiff dress code (no jeans, collared shirts, boy's hair couldn't reach the collar or cover the ears, etc.) and even they went to "acceptable" conservative shorts.

A battle won... but the War Against Swampbutt... rages on...

Again, not true. Lots of New Yorkers wear shorts. But I guess if your only experience of New York is East End Avenue I can see how one might think that.

To this day I've never bought a pair of shorts. Just cutoff old pair of Levis with holes in knees. Essential you run them through the wash a few times to get them really frayed. Nothing says loser more than fresh cutoffs that aren't frayed.
We had a pretty strict code as kids. As early as first grade any guy who brought an umbrella to school was branded a sissy, had no friends and was bullied.

You might want to see somebody about that. I fear you may be a Never Nude.
