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.

    I am on a cruise right now and grown-ass men are wearing cargo shorts to go dancing at night in the nightclub--Sometimes with dress shirts and sometimes with all manner of tank-tops and undershirts. But that's better than the big ones who are wearing their little speedos by the pool, I guess.

    I haven't worn mine at all yet. Hiking will be next week and it is nice to have the extra pockets for cargo. I used to hike a lot and I still have a very utilitarian pair with all sorts of pockets with zippers with interior pockets that close with velcro and extra belt loops to hang things on. Very handy. I got them at REI almost 20 years ago and they do not look stylish in any sense of the word.
    WHY ARE THE GUYS IN SUITS HERE? HAS SOMETHING GONE WRONG?

    Yes, and they’re being sold at Sid Mashburn, Todd Snyder, J. Crew, etc. I think they are a pretty dappered purchase, so long as you weren’t planning to wear them with a suit...
