Men’s Cargo Pants

One of the most popular ways to dress down when it comes to men’s pants is with a great pair of men’s cargo pants. But contrary to popular belief, men’s cargo pants can also be a fantastic way to dress up. Whatever your reason for wearing them, one thing is crystal clear: every man needs at least one pair of cargo pants for both dress up and dress down, and when it comes to finding the best pair for both worlds, Kohl’s has you covered. Cargo pants for men have become one of the most popular styles of men’s casual wear over the last several years. They have been more in style at certain times than at others, but they’ve never gone out of style and now in this post-modern digital age, cargo pants have had a cultural resurgence to become once again a men’s fashion trend to be reckoned with.

Cargo pants surged onto the fashion scene in the mid-to-late 1990s. Following a “trickle up” theory of how fashions spread, cargo pants were first worn as fashion by urban hip-hop performers in the 1990s. This trend flowed up to the mass market; cargo pants could be found at almost any men's or women's clothing retailer. Although the cargo pockets on most items were functional during this era, as they always were, they often were unused and just worn as decorative details.

While cargo pants were a major fashion trend in the 1990s, the history of these popular bottoms is purely functional. First worn by soldiers as early as the 1930s, cargo pants provided storage and easy access to gear. Cargo pants are still worn for functional and fashion purposes. The traditional cargo pant is a utilitarian pair of khaki pants, differentiated from regular pants by its cargo pockets. Cargo pockets are large square-shaped patch pockets located on the side of each pant leg, usually at the lower thigh. These are in addition to the standard front pockets. Cargo pockets usually fold shut and secure with a snap or Velcro, and are pleated to expand to accommodate storage of larger items.
