With emphasis on the "elegant" part

Cargo shorts are the only shorts I own, and the only thing I wear in the summer except when I go to the office. I give exactly zero berkeleys about how "fashionable" they are.

Wait, are you telling me that cargo shorts aren't fashionable?

E36 M3, I'm going to have to throw away my entire wardrobe

That would also explain why I'm single

I have accidentally purchased the most obnoxious pair of cargo shorts. They have fake back pockets. No actual pocket, but a flap with a button sewed on to looklike back pockets.

This was not intentional, wallet and receipts go in back pockets, they're kind of necessary, even with leg pockets. I use all of my pockets, this trickery is evil incarnate.

Always check when you're shopping at Burlington.

That is exactly what we all sound like.

Apparently.

You may also want to try denim shorts.

Eventually in life, you come to the point where you realize, what other people think is really not important.

I've actually worn mud boots with shorts before.

Function>Form.

If you wear skinny jeans too we're disowning you right now.

Cargo shorts are the best thing ever.

There's nothing wrong with cargo shorts. They are comfortable and useful. Deal with it.

I only have cargo shorts, but at 45, married with three kids who am I trying to impress?

I could give two craps about what shorts you wear, but looking to impress people is not the only reason to take some pride in your appearance!

I will leave the fashionable or not argument to others more qualified. my question is how many items are people actually carrying around that they would require this surplus of pockets?

Wallet in the front left pocket, keys and phone in the front right and i am ready to take on the day.
