    Is it weird to borrow your dad's clothes? Asking for a friend.

    As/Is has been killing it with their installments of 10 People Style videos — so far they've shown us all the potential tie-dye shirts, vintage-inspired bathing suits, and summer dresses can have. But in their latest installment, they're really REALLY putting people to task by asking them to style cargo shorts.

    BuzzFeed

    Yes. Those oversized cropped pants with, dare I say, too many pockets.

    Look, I'm just gonna say it here, I've never really been a fan of cargo shorts. I have invested far too much in my handbag collection to believe any kind of bottom needs that many pockets.

    But this As/Is video may have changed my mind on that!

    Have I actually needed cargo shorts this whole time?

    They started by asking 10 very fashionable people to style your traditional, saggy pocket cargo shorts, specifically ones from Aeropostale and King Size — these are def the kind of shorts I'd normally side-eye when I saw my dad wearing them on vacation.

    The Aeropostle shorts are available in mens sizes 27-42 and in five colors for $24.75 and the King Size shorts are available in men's sizes 44-65 and in nine colors for $35.99.

    The results left me singing Avril Lavigne and wondering if maybe I should, in my thirties, finally learn to skateboard. Or at minimum, go visit my local zoo.
