Growing up, cargo pants got a really bad rap. Often worn in shorts-form — Typically by spatula-wielding BBQ dads — the excessive pocket look, despite its functionality, eventually fazed out of style. But if you’ve been paying attention to trends in the past two or three years, you’ve likely seen a resurgence in these super-handy pants, especially among the vintage militaria community.
If there’s anyone we can trust to revive this classic from its late-90s slump, it’s Engineered Garments. These beauties are made from 100% cotton ripstop, so they’ll be sturdy and breathable. And of course, there are a ton of pockets.
The so-called FB pant is clearly inspired by Vietnam-war uniform pieces, with some asymmetrical pockets thrown in for good measure. Styled correctly, these will look great and make you forget all about the awful, long cargo shorts your mom made you wear to school – and you’ll have tons of storage for any and all springtime adventures that may arise.
So, tie yourself into a pair of these and hit the trail — or the bar — or go back to your hometown and show off just how well-dressed you are… I don’t care, it’s your life.
