    If you aren't wearing cargo jorts to the Toledo game you are doing it wrong.

    Quit caring about free drink coupons? :whoa: Come on now, those never go out of style. Even the teetotalers can regift them to appreciative friends.

    Forgot this part... YES to all of the the above regarding keys and wallet. Very rare that I carry that stuff in back pockets. I also carry exactly 1 key. My car key. Garage door opener is part of the car (with the actual opener in the glove box), and in the event that the opener fails, there is a key to my back door in the car, and hidden on the property (not by the door).

    I envy your keyless entry status. I live in a condo building so at a minimum I need the apartment key also. Meanwhile, the key fob never comes out of my pocket for car purposes anymore. Do they have front door locks that unlock automatically like that, when you touch them while the fob is in your pocket? I'd imagine so by now.

    It would be cool if you could have one master remote fob that you carry in your pocket and it is programmed so it automatically unlocks every door in your life when you come in close proximity to it - car, house, office, etc.

    On that note...unlock the beer taps, I'm off to Happy Hour.....

    Wait, fannie packs are out? What the Hey!?!

    Okay, I wear cargos and fannie packs (on vacations only) but not at the same time.

    Do I have to wear the pocket pen protector also? I feel so white and nerdy.

    Just because I have seen it in a few pictures....

    Do you tuck your shirt in when wearing shorts?

    I can NOT bring myself to do it. I can't even stand the way I look with my shirt tucked into jeans. The only exceptions I can think of is if playing golf at an upity course that requires your shirt to be tucked in. Even then, usually its just for the first hole. Or if it's a uniform requirement, like on a basketball team.

    I pretty much exclusively wear cargo shorts. I didn't know they were or weren't in fashion at any point. My new thing is to leave beer coozies in the cargo pockets, even in the washing machine, and I always have one when I need it.

    Been to three or four music festivals in the big city this summer and I'd say that cargo shorts outnumbered the hipster rolled up, bright colored, cut-off skinny jeans two to one. It's simply a matter of practicality. I start wearing them almost as soon as I stop wearing my leather jacket. I need those extra pockets for my iPhone, charger, wallet and car keys. Can't stand putting stuff in my back pocket. It hurts my butt and it's bad for my back.

    Cargo shorts 4ever.

    Me too.

    I claim ultimate coolness in that I have to carry around both my prescription sunglasses and my clear glasses on sunny days. I put the other pair (i.e., the pair I'm not wearing at the moment) in a cargo pocket.

    I also typically put my phone in another cargo pocket. It's not a smart phone that I'm consulting or texting on constantly.

    Those kind of bulky things don't fit well in normal pockets.

    Definitely. At an event where I will be out all day but need to carry some stuff and the standard pockets weren't enough. Gator games, music festivals, warm Gasparilla Day. I got chit I need to take with me and that includes a flask and a dugout, sometimes.

    We hung it up at the bar on the trophy shelf for awhile. He has it now, but lives in Australia so I don't know.
