Wirecutter - The Early Years

 
Funny thing is, the man in the picture looks just like Pop's stepdad when he was younger - without the stupid looking short pants, of course. Ike wouldn't have been caught dead in a pair of shorts in public. Me either.

wirecutter in short pants. Oh hell no.
Blinding white legs and knobby ass knees.
If anyone has candid pics, send them to me...

And that's why I don't wear short drawers. Traffic hazard if I'm walking down the street.

Spend some time in S Tejas. When it's 100F and 90% humidity, you'll quickly learn to love cargo shorts; if anyone doesn't like it, they're free to look somewhere else.

We get 100+ temps here all the time and I still refuse to wear little boy pants. It's called acclimation.
Try plowing through thickets of manzanita or sagebrush with cargo shorts sometime.
Or try putting on a pair of jeans to go through that shit when you're used to wearing short pants. You'll wish you were used to wearing long pants in the heat.

How odd that women can wear everything from shorty shorts to dresses with 4-in heels to jeans without a problem. Or bitching...
