Me too. But it depends on what I am going to be doing, and going to need to carry. Those cargo pockets come in handy for extra stuff.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

all of my shorts are cargo shorts. fuck flat front shorts. usually they are tighter and the pockets aren't very deep. i like having cargo shorts because i put my wallet in one of the lower pockets, keys in one and phone in the other. that way things aren't hitting each other in my pockets.

Precisely this.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

I never have an issue with flat front shorts and pocket space, but then again I always have my wallet in my back pocket, phone in my front left, and keys in front right and I don't think they're much different from jeans. Although I agree they're a little tighter.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

i don't use back pockets for anything. they are worthless.

plus, cargo shorts usually have a really big side pocket. one big enough to bring a flask of booze into the movies or where ever you are going.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

Wallet in the back pocket has always seemed like an easy way for a pickpocket to get you. Also, my wallet reaches George Costanza-levels at times and sitting on it would seriously F up my back.

Only if worn by frat kids with baseball caps turned backwards at a Dave Matthews Band concert.

Not a big fan of cargo shorts but it's hard to find decent fat boy shorts that aren't cargo now. Dickies are my saving grace.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

Cargo or not, I'd say the surf brands makes the non-douchiest looking shorts (O'Neill, Rip Curl, Hurley). I'ved been on a hybrid kick lately myself (Swim trunks that can pass off as casual-looking shorts).

Cargo Shorts are great to carry shit around. I usually carry my slim wallet in my front pockets. My problem with cargo shorts is that they are super casual, I mean bum ass casual. You can't dress them nicely with a polo or a short sleeve button down, you will look dumb. With flat fronts they are a bit more dressier and any shirt you throw at it works. You can't do the same with cargos.

Completely agree. I love cargo shorts.

I only have it in there when walking around. I hate to sit on a wallet because I feel uneven, and I'm not even close to Costanza levels.

Not all cargo shorts look that bummy, but I hate the look of flat front shorts so I would rather look too casual than wear those.

Just curious, but what do you have in there? Never understood the need to carry so much stuff around.

I carry a very thin wallet--a sleeve, really--with my DL, a $20 tucked behind it for emergencies, my debit card, my Target card, a credit card, and my insurance card. That's it, and it fits discretely in my front or back pocket.

The ones with very flat pockets (like Levi's etc) are ok.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

The nice thing about cargo shorts is they can hold all kinds of things: douchebags, bags of dicks, fistfulls of assholes, a bundle of ballsacks.

They're for whatever you need to carry.

Anyone rocking cargo shorts for 2015?

Did anyone make a change and decided that cargo shorts this year are out?
