This isn't the first time we've had the pleats/no-pleats arguement, is it?

I like pleats. The flat front has come and gone a few times in my life, kinda like 3 & 4-button suit coats. But pleats and the 2-button jacket is a classic look that never goes out of style. It may not be hip, but it's never uncool.

Pleated Cargo Shorts - now you're talkin'.

Either the off-season is too long or we're all turning gay.

The trick on the cargos is to not buy the really long ones that go to your knee. You can buys some regular length cargos at Old Navy and The Gap, but they have both so don't get suckered into the long ones. Look around and compare length.

I thought knee length was regular length. Any shorter than that are Stocktons. :)

There are two lengths typically that I have found. One is to the tops of your knees when you are standing....which I prefer. The other is down to the bottom of your knees when standing...way too long and uncomfortable to walk in, IMO.

Yep. Mine are just above the knee and I guess could be confused as knee length.
why don't you run back to the sandbox where the rest of the kids are playing so the adults can have a discussion...it's over there....you see Howie, he's over there with PMS knocking over other kids sandcastles...looks like fun.

Tommy Bahamas 100% silk pleated shorts, knee length. Get mama Turk's discount at Nordstrom so it helps in the wallet.

Oh and the Anniversary Sale starts July 20th. Go by and see her, Individualist, Nordy Galleria. That is all.

Point of clarification re: length...

"Knee Length" = at or just above the knee

If it hits below the knee, you're entering "manpri" territory. NEVER a good look for any man. I'm looking directly at YOU Kevin Federline!

Tried out both pairs of my cargo shorts for the 1st time during vacation this past week.

I had earlier stated that cargo shorts are heavier than pleated khaki shorts.

I kinda retract that statement.

My american eagle cargo shorts are much heavier. They are kinda heavyweight shorts.

My old navy cargo shorts are about the same weight as pleated khaki shorts.

I really like my cargo shorts.

The extra pockets come in handy for the cell phone and wallet and keys.

Don't have to use your rear pocket and sit on your wallet.
