There was a time when men crept through the woods hunting wolves and beasts. In their hands rested massive clubs big enough to bend a dinosaur's nose. Their bodies were covered in fur that they had taken from some sable-toothed tiger. Sometimes a necklace of predatory teeth was added.
Over the millennia they evolved. They used bows and arrows and finally found themselves in modern times: armed with pistols, ammunition, knives, tools, radios, compasses and all sorts of other things. All this was safely stowed away in military trousers, which had enough pockets and were extremely hard-wearing. Cargo trousers were born!
After being used by the military, police and security forces, they found their way into cities. Today it is worn by a wide range of men. From the daddy who takes his kids for a walk to the recreational warrior. Men and cargo pants simply go together! That's probably what some celebrities thought, too, who unceremoniously enjoyed their leisure time in cargo pants. Among them Arnold Schwarzenegger and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Cargo trousers and men's – nützual trousers are comfortable and look cool!
There are certainly not many similarities between the clothes of hip-hop fans and rockers. But there is one: in both cases, you see men wearing cargo pants again and again. Further proof that rock and hip-hop fans have more in common than they seem to at first glance. And those who like to attend festivals know how to appreciate cargo pants: They can take a lot of punishment, always sit comfortably and have enough pockets to keep all the bits and pieces safe – tickets, keys, smartphone and so on. In a way, their comfort makes them a real jeans alternative and the many pockets are the only true men's handbag substitute for big city warriors.
Cargo trousers and men's – (no)instruction manual
Cargo pants are worn loosely on the hüften. To make this work, they are cut a little tighter. But don't worry: it's still light years separating them from the „corset for men“ – as a rule they lie on loosely. Depending on the type of shoes and top you wear, you can create your own unique combinations. From casual athlete to Major Payne's heir apparent, you can do it all.
King of the highway? King of the highway!
Admittedly, the vocabulary is a little imprecise. But if you take a look at the Rusty Wash cargo pants, it quickly becomes clear what is meant. The spray-dye process creates an extremely cool look that would appeal to Clint Eastwood and the Punisher alike. Wolverine, „The Walking Dead“ and Route 66 are other terms that spontaneously pop into your head when you think of this style. And here, too, flexibility is the key. This type of men's cargo pants goes just as well with the V8 Challenger as it does with a day at work. You'll be ready for anything that comes your way.
