Cargo Pants

L.L. Bean Signature Sportsman Chino Cargo Pant ($89)

Even though a young Jonah Hill via Superbad once said, “No one’s gotten a handjob in cargo pants since ‘Nam!”, we beg to differ. Cargo pants have made a strong resurgence in the menswear crowd as of late, especially the slim fitting version. Why have these pants, first used by British soldiers in 1938, made a comeback? It's utilitarian, son! The military cargo featured strong pockets with easy access for storage. While we probably aren’t keeping grenades in there, we still use the pockets. You know, to hide our drugs and stuff. And for that, we salute you, cargo pants!
