Don't be so modest. You're quite diplomatic.

Bourbon and Thanks SF,

 

I took no offense.

 

I figured it was the mention of cargo shorts.  After I posted my reply, it dawned on me that in my short time on this site, I don't think I have seen any.

 

I wear them for very casual times, usually with a tee shirt that most of you would also find objectionable.

 

I wear them for yard work, around the house, to the mailbox, to the gas station, and quick runs to the grocery store.

 

IMHO, non-cargo shorts require more attention to detail and taste.  In other words the cargo pockets justify the rest of the uber casual (sloppy) look.

 

I guess I will look elsewhere to find some I find acceptable.

 

I will learn as time goes by.

 

Cheers,

They are, much like the black button-down shirt, a constant reminder of someone who hasn't matured their style since high school.
I don't mean to personally attack you, of course. The whole point of this site is exploring and learning about style and clothing. However, this is not a good start for you. And you clearly have much to learn.
My sincere answer is to treat cargo shorts as Stalin treated his enemies: forgotten forever; removed from history. They should never have existed and they should never be a part of your wardrobe. You cannot find a pair that fit well because "properly fitting" cargo shorts don't exist. They are all-around terrible. And wearing them, at least at first impression, makes you appear all-around terrible.

So the gist of what you are saying, the key theme of your post, the essential thesis if you will, your fundamental argument (if I'm understanding you correctly) is that you find cargo shorts distasteful?

Cargo shorts have their place, but they have absolutely nothing do with style.

Cargo pants on the other hand, have no place at all, other than perhaps the battlefield.

Any thoughts on this for business casual? The tie is purple and sky. I'm not sure if I should go with the khakis, as pictured, or just gray flannel.

Needs better-quality photos and you should take the full-body shot from a higher angle.

: ) I prefer this to having the seams dropping down on the upper arms for a sweater (?) like this, but it does make your shoulders look a bit narrower. Noticeably odd, no. (Can't really see it that well in the pic either smile.gif.)

It seems no one else has commented, so these observations may be more a matter of personal taste than anything else:

Although the colours and style of this outfit is great, to me the denim makes your legs look overly short. The turned cuffs bring the legs to a screaming halt about 3" higher than they should (without the light blue bar of denim your legs would look about 3" longer). I appreciate that you may be waiting to hem them but in the meantime I would consider pairing them with some solid looking boots rather than the decidedly delicate double-monk.

With boots you could stack the fabric, or even unroll it over the boot, but either way it would make the leg longer and bring it back into proportion with your torso. You have a great sense of style and proportion but it seems very bottom-heavy in this particular shot.

Bateman's shirt seems a tad wide around the waist and I'm not a fan of the forced 'sprezz' of unbuckled monks. The colours, as Blackhood said are nice though.
I also agree with caseyfud on the picture quality.

Here is some food for the shoulder seam police.
The jeans were raw once...

Nice sweater, Crat. Different kind of sweater, different shoulder seam rules. smile.gif

Great feedback. Thanks.
