Happy #CargoFriday.
No really, it’s a thing now. Or at least many feel it ought to be, according the likes of the Wall Street Journal and the internet at large.
As WSJ writer Nicole Wong wrote, “I apologize to the world for igniting the Cargo Shorts Wars of 2016.”
The khaki struggle is real, people. Battle lines are being drawn in the wardrobes of those who love their cargos and those who can’t stand the sight of them, particularly on their significant others. It’s sparked viral hashtags like #TeamCargo and #CargoFriday as well as support from everyone from celebrities like Judd Apatow to the men of the WSJ newsroom itself.
