I like cargo pants. Most of my friends think they're ugly, but I think that it depends on how you wear them. I look like I'm an explorer in the Amazon when I wear this pair with leather boots... So I thought this time I'd wear them with Stan Smith sneakers: the classic men's tennis shoe. I have three good reasons for pairing these shoes with cargos. First, they're comfortable. Second, they're white, which is the perfect summer color. Third, they make a traditional look-that people have military and exploration connotations with-both urbanized and relaxed. Basically, no one wants to look like they're trying too hard. I thought the sneakers would be a good way to casualize the outfit. And obviously I couldn't decide what color shirt to wear, so there's some bonus inspiration for you.
Check out the photos of my friend, Dan, too. Simple, great look.
