For the past few weeks, we've been bombarded with articles telling us to stop wearing cargo shorts. But no matter how hard we try to understand their reasoning, we always end up asking, "Come on, fashion article writers, what the hell is wrong with cargo shorts?"

They're masculine. They look GREAT with all our shirts. There's a camo "colorway." They have enough pockets for all our guy-stuff (read: wallet, smartphone, keys, an emergency can of corned beef).  There's absolutely no reason to ditch them.Or is there? To put an end to the debate, we ask the people that really matter: girls. "Hey girl, what do you think about my cargo shirts," we asked them while striking our best fashion blogger-approved pose. These are their answers:


THE GIRLS THAT ARE OKAY WITH IT:

"As long as they're comfortable in them and it looks good on them, then it's okay." - JOSELLE

"I think there's nothing wrong about cargo shorts if they feel like wearing them. As long as they're comfortable in those things, it doesn't matter." - KATRINA

"It doesn't matter. All of us have different tastes and style." - MODELIE

"I think cargo shorts are still cool. Just because some say it's already out of fashion, doesn't mean it really is. It's just a matter of how you carry it." - ANGELICA

THE GIRLS THAT ARE OKAY WITH IT...BUT ONLY IF YOU'RE A DAD/ADULT:

"Okay lang naman siguro para sa matatanda kasi ganun sinusuot ng daddy ko. Pero for guys ages 20 to 30 years old, baka pwedeng i-ditch na nila." - TRINA

"I think cargo shorts are just for adults." - BEA


THE GIRLS THAT ARE NOT OKAY WITH IT:

"I'm not a huge fan of cargo shorts, and I don't think they're flattering on guys. I think if guys really want to wear shorts, they can opt for bermuda shorts instead—which are comfy and have the same length as cargo shorts—but look sleeker. I know guys like their pockets because they can store EVERYTHING inside, but oversized pockets are so tacky!" - SANDRA

"I generally don't mind men wearing cargo shorts...but if you're trying to make a good impression...ang pangit." -  INSEL

 "Honestly, they look ugly but they're also not that bad." - ZERENIA


THE GIRLS THAT ARE OKAY WITH IT...BUT ONLY IF YOU HAVE "RIPPED MUSCLES"
 
"It only fits men who have ripped muscles." - RENALYN

 "It's okay for men with big thighs. Bakit naman nila ipipilit mag suot ng chino kung hindi kasya legs nila?" - CHRISTA


THE GIRLS THAT ARE OKAY WITH IT UNDER SEVERAL CONDITIONS:

"I think guys can still wear them only if they abide by these conditions: Do not abuse the pockets and wear styles that are too loose—mukhang hindi nilalabhan, and that is not pogi-looking at all."  - IRA

"For me, okay lang, just as long as you know HOW, WHEN and WHERE to properly wear it." - COLA 


THE GIRL THAT IS OKAY WITH IT UNDER ONE CONDITION:

"Why not?! Cargos have more pockets so guys can carry their girlfriend's stuff." - BIANCA
