Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

If loving extra storage space is wrong, I don't wanna be right.

It frustrates me to no end that so many fancy pants (not people, actual clothing) have faux pockets. I try to tuck my wallet into some slacks only to have it fall to the floor.

I fish a lot and that is all I wear when I am out on the boat.

Well I really like AA cargo ... wait I was on auto write.

I voted stop wearing them, but they are useful. I have one pair of cargo shorts, no pants.

Shorts. Not a fan of the pants pants, though I suppose if one is useful the other is too. Being a father of a small army, I tend to be the designated holder of things. MOAR POCKETS

Let's see the quality impulse buys!

I work IT and I am often carrying around multiple small items so I wear them to work (strangely they fit the dress code.)They are decidedly un-cool but then so is most everything people wear to office jobs and hey, it beats a Man-purse.

Greatest maternity pants ever!!! The light weight doesn't drag them down your butt!! Love them... but still maternity pants so the love is relative.

I wear shorts 10 1/2 months of the year. Cargo shorts only issue is that they won't let me play golf in them. Gotta be golf or Bermuda shorts.

Another useful item ruined by yuppie dbags trying to be "trendy." Much like the majority of work boots sold have never seen actual work, 99% of the cargo pockets in the U.S. have been empty for the entire life of the garment.

The last thing I want is pockets down to my knees. Especially if they are full of stuff and keep banging you in the knees or legs when you walk.

Don't care if they are outdated and uncool. I love them. Especially the ones that turn into shorts by unzippering the legs.

Honestly, I'm not entirely sure what they are. I thought maybe they were those knee-length shorts people wear, but those wouldn't be "pants".

Tried that, actually. Did you look at the results? Short pants, long pants, pants with lots of pockets, pants with a couple of pockets, loose pants, tight pants, baggy pants, capri pants, khakis, leggings...

Judging by Google, cargo pants are "anything not denim".

the pockets on cargo pants/shorts remind me of the saddlebags on a horse.

I'm an adult. Don't you have anything OTHER THAN freakin' T-shirts? I haven't worn a T-shirt since I was in puberty. Get with the Plan, Woot! Baby Boomers Unite!!!

Well, now. Though shirt.woot is in the business of selling shirts, it does indeed have things other than "freakin' T-shirts." Through its side sales, shirt.woot also offers hoodies, long-sleeved shirts, tote bags, cooking/grilling aprons, tank tops, greeting cards, etc. Each side sale, changing weekly, is different. Do keep an eye on them to see if anything may happen along to meet your approval.

Please, though, in the interim: do inform us as to what you believe shirt.woot should be selling for your singularly specific Baby Boomer needs! Tell us about this Plan with which woot should be getting! Shirt.woot welcomes any and all customers' suggestions--one never knows what may come of it!

Hey, can we help this old timer find a cool suspender-a-day website or something?
