Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

Do you rock cargo shorts in the summer? Or whatever season? I know this is not a fashion forum but just wanted to hear some opinions from some crazy otters.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

Anyone that uses the the term "rock" in that manner is a douchebag.

No I don't wear cargo shorts, just capris.

They're for transporting cargo, not douchebags.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

When I not sporting the now ties I like to dress down in cargo pants. They're a good middle ground between basketball shorts and dockers shorts.

Cargo pants are for douchebags.
Shorts are for douchebags.

So, I think in a two wrong making a right situation, they're not. Just to be safe though, I'm not wearing them.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

I wear cargo shorts. Actually as far as shorts go its near impossible to find any other kind of shorts in stores. Unless I want to walk around in gym shorts or something. But lets face it, wearing gym shorts for anything other than doing something althetic is awful douchy too. Even more so than cargo shorts.

That's me, but I call 'em slippers. I'm from Hawaii though, and do not wear a puka shell necklace.

Pretty much this. Personally, I don't object to cargo short styling much (and having the extra pockets is very nice), just how long they are. I like shorts that end a couple of inches above the knee and most cargo shorts seem to go all the way to the knee. Tried to buy some new shorts for a trip recently and ended up with some Eddie Bauer cargos because nothing else I looked it was worth a damn. They are amazingly comfortable though.

Cargo shorts are for douchebags. I own several pair.

I prefer to just walk around in my boxer shorts.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

I have a few pairs and wear them every so often. It's nice to have more pockets for stuff (especially when I'm travelling) and more comfortable to carry my wallet / keys / phone etc. in the "lower pockets".

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

Living in Texas you'd be crazy not to wear shorts during the summer months. Too hot and humid not to.

Especially if the flip-flops have a bottle opener. I can't believe that some frat boy douche wore these to jury duty (that's how I found out about them) the last time I served. He was showing them off to everyone.

Not if you're into metal.

Not only do I wear cargo shorts, but I tuck my t-shirt in them as well.

Wearing some now. It's not a fashion statement, they're just shorts.

I own a pair of those and wear them all the time, they're comfortable and last a really long time. Reefs in general are everywhere here in Florida but nobody uses the bottle opener on those things (I always draw attention to potential dog shit), it's a goofy novelty for otherwise good quality flip flops.

I do wear cargo shorts when I go boating or skydiving, that's about it though. I've been called worse things than a douche bag. Floridian is much more offensive.

They aren't that bad as long as you don't combine them with an open-toed shoe (which of course should never be worn at all, unless you are within a half-mile of the ocean).

Me too. We should pal around and see how many people point at us and shout "Look at those douchebags!"
