Georgetown University’s Lacrosse Team Is Throwing An Official Cargo Shorts Retirement Party
Cargo shorts. No single item of clothing has been more divisive for mankind since the beginning of time. You’re either adamantly anti-cargo and only rock above-the-knee inseam shorts or don’t get what all the fuss is about and will defend your right to wear cargos till the death. Over the years we tend to straddle both sides of the argument here at BroBible (…I’m adamantly anti-cargo, others are not), writing this a few years back.
Cargo shorts have a negative stigma. There’s no denying it. The battle over cargo shorts has waged in our little corner of the Internet for years. Many BroBible readers dating back to 2009 might remember the commenter wars that would break out over whether cargo shorts were Bro or not Bro in the Brommunity forum (common conclusion of those discussions: Giving a fuck about fashion is not Bro). We’ve had various stances on the issue: A few years ago David wrote a defense of cargo shorts, which TFM responded to with a counter-point. I have personally bashed them and called cargos the defacto uniform of white trash, but generally sides on dudes being comfortable while paying the alimony checks at the end of the day. Ben Aylesworth put them on his “list of things to not get you laid” list earlier this summer.
The bottomline: Ultimate Lax Bro Brantford Winstonworth would never be caught dead in cargos. No self-respecting lax Bro would.
Now that spring has arrived in the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast, it’s officially cargos vs. regular shorts season. Which brings us to this amazing “retirement” party being thrown by Georgetown Hoyas Lacrosse. The D.C. school is embracing their WASP-Y reputation before squaring off against St. John’s, encouraging the fans to say goodbye to their cargos.
