Cargo Pants and Why I Hate Them

An Open Letter to THE MAN (Or Woman. Whatever.)


Dear Designers and Manufacturers of Clothing for Male Children of All Ages,  (DaMoCfMCoAA)

Can you PLEASE stop making Cargo Pants? I mean, SERIOUSLY! I can't take it anymore!
I know you think there needn't be any variety in the Boy Clothing Department (aka The Rack of Clothing on the Edge of the Girl Department). I know you think that the two brands of identical Cargo Pants offered at Target and Wal-Mart (the only two places I shop) should be adequate.
But let me tell you something...

I HATE THEM!

Here is what I hate about them...

THE POCKETS!!!
Those blasted 58 pockets!

They hang open, look messy, collect EXCESSIVE amounts of dirt and sand (which is redistributed all over my house), they're bulky, inefficient, and MOST OF ALL...
they prevent me from being able to fold the pants flat.

And if there is one thing I hate, it's crappily folded clothing that doesn't fit nicely in our limited drawer space!!!SO PLEASE! Enough with the cargo pants! Simple 5-pocket jeans and/or shorts will be just fine!

And feel free to sew the pockets closed. If my son needs to carry something, I'll get him a man-purse.

Sincerely,
Emily W.

Fantastic! LOL Now this is a "rant"!

I feel ya on the "crappily folded clothing". Sin in immeasurable ways.

I hope your suggestions are taken into serious consideration!

Wonderful execution!

try folding them by matching the inside leg seams so the pockets lay flat.
