This Is Why Cargo Pants Get a Bad Name

Okay, so Christian Bale is no longer Batman, but pending a miraculous Ben Affleck escape from the clutches of the Zac Snyder-verse, he's still our favorite Batman. But Bale has never been one to really try all that hard when it comes to dressing well. At red carpet events he usually falls somewhere between "totally fine" and "not a nightmare" which is to be expected from a guy who is as dedicated to his craft as Bale is.

But even with our generous hall pass in play, we can't ignore his recent cargo pants go undiscussed.

David Beckham Shows You The Right Way To Show Off Your Freshest Shoes

So, in the spirit of self care, we asked 200 women what they hate the most when it comes to men's underwear.
