I've just read that cargo shorts are "out."

I think as long as they can be found in stores, some guys will continue to wear them.

Mostly, the cargoes I see are wrinkled, baggy messes. I have occasionally seen trimmer versions, which I think look better. Over all, I'd do a thumbs down. I don't think they are a good look on most men.

It always makes me roll my eyes when I read that a certain thing that is sold and worn literally everywhere is dubbed "out."

But if we didn't have them where would we keep our cargo?

Preppy dressers keep them in their man's bags, apparently. Ostensibly along with extra pairs of low-cut footie socks.

This is so funny to me!

This is a posting in a Fashion Forum.

The question is yea or nay on cargo shorts.

Those of us who follow fashion and say nay, are being argued with as to why people like them.

Some of you who have never posted on a fashion forum are arguing yes for cargo shorts!

If you like them and wear them, good for you!

They just aren't fashion and haven't been for some time.

Crocs are also sold everywhere.

Yeah, I'm certainly a poster boy for the "fussy/prissy" type.

I wouldn't say they are fashionable but are comfortable and often useful.
