Now, in keeping with prevailing tastes, I walk around in snugly fitting jeans while an enormous smartphone bulges from my pocket. In other words, while I used to have extra pockets and nothing to put in them, I now have a bulky mini-computer with me at all times that I can’t comfortably carry. This is not sustainable. It’s awkward merely to walk around this way, and the tension becomes so great when I sit down that I’m forced to put my phone on the table like an asshole, as if I’m expecting an important message. And that’s all before considering the KN95 mask and oversized CDC vaccination card that have become as essential as my keys and wallet. Which is why it’s so obviously time for cargoes to make a comeback. Past time, really. Everyone is walking around with a giant phone and nowhere to put it. The technology exists to solve this problem. We just need to embrace it.” I use cargo shorts all the time. I can put garden shears, a beer, my phone, a pocket knife, and the latest mail in them. Yea, cargo shorts! August 19, 2021 4:36 PM Log in to Reply Add a Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
