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.
I hate polo shirts, I think they are totally uncomfortable, and I just don't like how they look (yes, to me they look even lamer and more douchy than Hawaiian shirts). I also really don't like cargo shorts, but I have a pair or two because at the time it was all I can find.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

It seems like we've eliminated every possible clothing option for men as "douchey". Maybe we need to try the reverse, and find fashions that we can all agree upon as "not douchey"?

I suppose if that's the culture of the office it's fine, but when it's that one guy out of 20, it looks silly.

I made the switch to them around three years ago and never looked back. They are much more comfortable and breathe a lot better than denim shorts so I tend to stay cooler in the summer wearing khaki / cargo shorts than jean shorts. Plus, they simply look nicer, too.

As to the poll question, they're for everybody. I wear 'em, but the poll doesn't describe me! ...Er, well, to my knowledge.
These are awesome. I wear them every chance I get when the weather is warm. Much more comfortable than long pants.

I prefer to wear a t-shirt than a polo shirt. I too hate the way they look. And they are so golfy. No way I can wear that polyester in the summer. I do think they look ok on some guys.


Btw in regards to New Yorkers wearing shorts...

thousands of new yorkers wear shorts. Come down to 34th st or times square and see how many guys wear shorts.

I'm wearing a 98% cotton, fitted, solid black polo from Banana Republic that's not at all "golfy".

By this forum's standards, my entire outfit right now (black BR fitted polo, grey Volcom flat-front knee-length "khaki" shorts, black lace-less slip-on Chucks) is douchy.

Fuck you guys.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

I've never been able to get the collars on polo shirts to lay right, that's why I gave them up.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

My entire wardrobe is douchy and unacceptable

I really don't give a crap what people think, it won't stop me from wearing or doing anything that I want to do.

They allow polo shirts and sperry boat shoes at the yacht club

I need the cargo shorts to help hold my 12" penis


and being an IT guy, HELL YES I HAVE WORN SHORTS AND SANDALS TO WORK, all while laughing at the douches forced to wear a suit on a 95F + degree day

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

We are now in 2014 and Spring is here and summer coming soon...will you be rocking cargo shorts? I decided this year to wear flat front shorts. Kinda switch it up a little.

Also is it true that nobody has gotten a blowjob in cargo shorts since 'nam?

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

Being Minnesotan, I savor the opportunity to wear shorts. Since it's been in the high 30's, I've been wearing shorts. Cargo shorts are just something that happens to be super comfortable and I use the side pockets for my wallet and keys.

Also, not true.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

It was pushing 80 degrees this weekend here in Chicago, forcing me to break out the shorts. Ghostly white legs, beat up cargo shorts, solid colored "Sahara-tech" t-shirt from REI, silver-framed aviators from Target and leather flip flops. While walking my dog, I saw roughly two dozen men dressed identically in my neighborhood. Later, I washed my car with my daughter, grilled bugers on the Weber and then watched the simply scandalous Game of Thrones. Then it was off to bed nice and early, after all I had work the next day!

Spring 2014 in the lilly-white Chicago burbs. Cargo shorts are part of the equasion.

Now that would be a thread worth starting.
All I wear is cargo shorts in the summer with t-shirts and flip flops if I'm not working.

Re: Are cargo shorts for douchebags?

I live near the dessert I would be insane not to wear some kind of shorts btwn now and September. Not a cargo fan myself because people unfairly associate them with fat married guys,juiceheads or date rapey frat bros. I tend to stick to tracky shorts,golf shorts or bball shorts.

I've mostly moved to flat front shorts too, although I still have some old cargos around.
