How To Wear Cargo Shorts

Summer is coming and it’s time to sport something other than your beloved denim shorts. It just so happens that cargo shorts are back.

Cargo shorts have proven more than a fleeting trend and moved on to become a classic look for men. Whether you’re a timeless and classic type of guy or a street wear dude, there’s something for everyone.

Soldier up, private 

Traditionally, cargo shorts were made for tough outdoor activities and army combat. Now they’ve become a global fashion trend. And one that’s proving to have staying power. Armed and dangerous, this earthy-hued army piece has retreated from the battlefields and moved onto the fashion-forward stage.

Keep it casual and relaxed 

Cargo shorts were designed to be functional and comfortable, and we’ve kept those qualities in our collection. Whether you’re walking the dog, fixing the car or going on a hike, this is home territory for cargo shorts.

How to style cargo shorts 

Cargo shorts are versatile and convenient. That being said, there are times they’re more suitable to wear than others. As a rule of thumb, when you think cargo, think casual and laid-back styling.

For a dressy style, sport them with an oxford shirt and you’ll be all kinds of all right. This preppy look can be perfect for a hot summer date if the location is appropriate. If you’re looking for something a little more urban and effortless, wear them with a white tee and a denim jacket (no socks with this look).
