    Ya. See... I've convinced myself that it's no big deal because I can just slip the shorts off without removing my shoes and slip another pair on in seconds. Oh, how easily I've rationalized this behavior! Every now and then I really surprise myself with how vain I still am.

    I made a dappered sacrilege purchase and picked up a pair of Blundstone boots the other day. Looking forward to them! Who's gonna put the cuffs on me?

    Would it fit this thread to admit that I don't own a navy, wool sportcoat?

    My wife bought a pair of red Blundstones recently. Then I decided to purchase a pair of Dr Marten's Archie II shoes. I feel like it was for nostalgic reasons, as I remember everyone wearing similar shoes when I entered high school, but I wanted a pair that might be more office appropriate.

    Doc Martens do flash me back to grade 8. I never had a real pair; only a look-a-like pair of brown "suede" ones.

    These are the Blundstone boots I got: https://www.blundstone.ca/products/b...n-rustic-brown

    Wish the toe was rounder but it's a tradeoff. Hoping the supposed waterproofness and sheepskin insoles can strike a balance between warmth, dryness, and decent looks while it's cold and ugly outside.

    P.S. - My wife wanted a pair before I got mine. She's still undecided on which model she'll get. My decision to get a pair of Blundstones what that of pure spontaneity.

    I haven't noticed but I'll take your word for it. I'm retracting my confession then and am happy to know that I have not sinned.

    Honestly I'm pro cargo shorts as well. The only issue is finding a pair that still has a presentable fit. The utilitarian nature of them makes that harder. Paired with a short sleeve top/casual polo/henley, I find it a more acceptable casual look than the shorter, tighter chino shorts menswear promotes, which often comes off preppy (which is a style I don't care for).

    Yeah, I think I agree. I've always been a cargo shorts guy but this past spring and summer I did chino shorts because it seemed like the proper thing to do. But you know what? I was never quite happy with the look. Then I went down to Florida last week to see family and my dad was wearing exclusively cargo shorts -- nothing fancy, just cargo shorts and polos mainly, and it was a good look. I only packed chinos and was wishing I had some cargos.

    While I'm not a fan of cargo pants or shorts, I do admit the main objection I have is the baggy fit most seem to wear them in. With a properly fitted pair, they would look much more presentable. I could see slim fitted cargo pants, a well fitted ribbed henley, and desert boots being a nice casual "rugged" fall look.
