It is officially spring, time for some spring time fashion tips.
I like my useless cargo pockets doe.
I will forever argue in favour of cargo pockets!!
I have cigarettes, a wallet, a phone, and various other shit to carry. And In summer I don’t want to be carrying round a bag.
Cargo pockets ftw.
WARNING: I know I posted this on the personal blog but it’s been playing in my mind and it’s been pissing me off. I FEEL VERY PASSIONATELY ABOUT THINS, OKAY!?
So, according to this post, the only shorts we can have are the same boring straight cut style in vary shades of pale pastel. And it’s bull.
So I’m going to start with the fact that we all apparently shouldn’t have those ‘cargo pockets’. Well I’m here to tell you that that’s wrong. You see, I am a person of larger thighs (which I happen to lie FYI). However, with varying cuts of trouser and shorts, I often therefore get the saddle bags. Well, those cargo pockets that are apparently bad? Well, with the right length, they fall at exactly the right level to balance them out.
Also, with those shorts, where am I meant to put all my shit I have to carry around with me? To leave the house, at the very minimum, I need to carry my phone, wallet, cigarettes, lighter and keys. Well, remember those saddle bags I was talking about? Well without them I would have massive bulging pockets!
Now, those shorts that are too tight? Well, although not my particular style, I know a hell of a lot of people who like to show off their body they in the tight shorts. AND THEY LOOK AMAZING!!
And we’re not permitted to have baggy shorts?! Well, do you even understand how comfortable baggy shorts are? Well, we’re allowed to be comfortable!!
And look how boring the permitted patters are!!
I don’t want to look like a preppy pseudo-hiper!! It’s not my style!!
To conclude: You want to know what shorts you should be wearing? Well there is one simple question you need to ask yourself: Do you like them? If the answer is yes, then good. If the answer is no, then don’t buy them.
Thank you for listening. This has been a post.
^ this. “Fashion advice” and “rules of style” usually just boil down to one thing: arbitrary rules that white middle-class folk claim is the “right” way to dress, when really it’s just “the right way to dress white and middle class”, so that they can find and exclude folk who don’t have the time, money or desire to wear the “right” thing. It’s not the exclusion that bothers me about it though - folk from all groups use clothing to indicate they’re part of a certain group, after all - it’s the fact that the rules of this one group (i.e., those with high disposable income) have tried to claim the rules of their group apply to ALL groups, and that to be excluded from their group is some kind of Objective Social Faux-Pas. It isn’t.
Here’s a fucking “What not to do” for the list - don’t get caught wearing any of this shite when you’re telling folk they can’t have cargo pockets in their shorts, unless you’re really into the “irrelevant” and “fucking intolerable” look.
