I've only recently begun to transition away from cargo shorts. They used to be my bread and butter.

Why are you transitioning? To what? Are you happy with whatever you're doing now?

I've certainly worn cargo shorts, but they aren't the best looking.

Do people actually use the cargo pockets? Seems superfluous.

My wife has slowly been improving my "style" and I do mean slowly. I'm going with regular khaki shorts from Old Navy, different colors. Ground breaking I know. I dig them.

Nope, almost never.

Lots of times.

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

For what? Very rarely do they seem useful to me.

Ball games mostly. Keys, wallet, ticket, phone, peanuts. When I sit in my seat I put my wallet in the cargo pocket because it's easier to get at for buying beers.

Most of that is what normal pockets are for. ;)

Love them. I use them for my glasses sometimes. I don't like putting them up on my head/hat. I also bring a portable charger sometimes if I'll be out a lot. Also when I'm going to a movie theatre or stadium, being fat, it's nice being able to put my wallet and keys in the cargo pockets instead.

You guys should just carry a murse. Or maybe a fanny pack.

So a fanny pack or murse is more fashionable than cargo? Yuck.

I kinda figured but I bet these hipster haters would prefer that.

Backpacks are all the rage right now.

Indeed. Better look than cargo shorts. ;)

And again, I own some cargo shorts.

I had no idea this was a topic.

 

I own a few pairs, wear them all the time.  But I would wager that I know less and care less about fashion than just about anyone on this board.
