Cargo shorts: cool, functional, fashionable. Mad pockets to hold extra summer gear like sunglasses or a sno-cone. They are cool and they are a good fashion choice.
I think this is Luke in this picture. He's got the Birks and everything. This picture must be a couple years and about 5 pounds ago for Luke, though.
Man capris are not cargo shorts and they are unacceptable. Not quite shorts, not quite pants. Not quite manly. They are just a fashion choice you should not make. Look at this picture. This guy has got his army gear on, his combat boots, his b-boy stance. He should be looking tough right now. Does he? No. Why? Man capris.
