I would venture to say that nearly every man, regardless of age, race, geographical location, or general personal style point-of-view, owns a pair of cargo shorts. Perhaps he has many pairs and wears them often. Maybe he only wears them once a year, when he decides to go to the beach or "fix things around the house." Maybe he doesn't even like wearing them because he is insecure about his pale skin or twig-like calves. Yet he wears them because the weather is just so dang hot and he bought them for a reason, right? After all, they do apeal to his sense of practicality, what with their many, many, many pockets. All of these things may be accurate, but that doesn't make cargo shorts any less offensive.
