    These would be cargo shorts worn in this case by David Beckham

    Oh right, thank you Glen. I suppose that they have their place-----------but not in my wardrobe!

    For the record, I, the OP, would not wear them, either.
    Your reactions are hilarious, too.

    I can actually imagine Lord Killwillie in his own spinoff trying to survive in suburban America for an episode and sporting a pair to "blend in" and all manner of comedic mishap.

    Pure comedy is the spirit of this thread.

    Hahaha!!

    Just for that I might order a couple yards of P/V tartan, whip up a pair, then post them to you. Happy Christmas (in June), good sir!

    Literally doing this at the mo.

    If a pair of tartan shorts ever actually landed on my doorstep I'd put them on, take a selfie, and post it here.

    Ya gotta find me first, though! Name:  ninja.gif

    I am a solid colour man myself. Apart from a pair of trews and pin-striped trousers (as part of a suit), all my leg coverings are either kilts or solid colours.

    It is like golf clothing or Hawaiian shirts and the like. In their own setting - fine. Take them out of their setting and I find that I can't take the wearer seriously.

    I'd wear just about any garment in my tartan. I bet I could make tartan cargo shorts work in an outfit. I have three styles of shirt that I regularly wear.

    I'm kind of off cargo shorts though. They are a little bit done. If I was going to wear tartan shorts, I'd probably prefer a more streamlined style.
