Also known as combat pants or combat trousers, cargo pants or cargo trousers have been around for decade and actually had a very utilitarian purpose. Did you know that cargo pants were originally designed to be used as military workwear? These loosely-cut pants were designed to withstand rough work environment and outdoor activities. This is part of the reason why cargo pants feature so many utility pockets. It's not just a style statement: those pockets were made for carrying tools for all your adventuring needs.
Today, however, cargo pants have evolved into a style statement of their won and can be worn by anyone and everyone. Cargo pants for men have become an incredibly popular style choice as they are cool, classic and practical - ideal for men who want their style to be both fashionable and functional. The man on-the-go with lots of items to carry especially loves this style as it is incredibly practical for indoor and outdoor adventures. While we may not be in the military, the modern man still has quite a few items he needs to carry. With cargo pants, you have a pocket for you phone, a pocket for your wallet, a pocket for your keys and a pocket for your sunglasses and other miscellaneous items. During the summer months, these pockets come in extra handy.
Cargo pants now come in many forms with the same basic structure. Shoppers can now easily find cargo jeans and cargo joggers in varying shades and shapes.
