Defined by their deep pockets they're on the racks at Burdines in every shape and size...
Melissa Goff of Burdines says, "Pretty much everyone can wear them you're gonna find a multitude of styles and sizes it's great on younger girls espcecially in the low rise but a curvy figure a little bit more mature figure can also wear them..."
UM fans -- still willing to flaunt it --- can do it in a cotton cargo...
If you're a jeans and T-shirt type you can get into some denim cargo pants
The pants with the practical pockets come in just about every color and work for day or night.
