Yes.  I'm struggling to decide what's worse--the ugly cargo pants that stop half way between the knees and the ankles or those horrible baggy short shorts.  Nobody--and I mean nobody--looks good in either.

'...cargo pants that stop half way between the knees and the ankles...'   That's not half way.

The photo above qualifies under "either."

 

Looking good is the man.  Looking appropriate is another issue altogether.  Handsome guys look good in anything or nothing.

  Doesn't qualify under 'either' in my book. I referred to baggy short shorts and cargo pants that stop half way between the knees and the ankles.  The photo you posted isn't either of them.

A pedantic cargo shorts argument.  I think that's a first.  Congrats.

So the low life test is about checking the length of the cargo pants amiright?

 

Methinks this is the only acceptable attire for proper amount of respect towards our parole officers:

No.  As long as you know the difference between a tourist and a long stay retirement extension/visa you'll be OK.

Ah good, I know that one: none whatsoever, both can be thrown out any time without a second thought.

In primary school I wore jeans, in high school I wore jeans, in university I wore jeans, at work I wore jeans. Now that I'm retired I wear beach shorts. That's what tourists wear and that's what the "non-immigrant" means. It's the official trendywear of the perpetual tourists. The civil servants serving my perpetual tourist arse should wear their uniforms and go yes sir right away sir oui bwana. Ugh.

i have never worn jeans in my life

Nothing pompous about poking fun at scruffs turning up at immigration who endlessly moan about having to wait and 'jump through hoops' in order to stay here. Actually it's one of the easiest countries in the world to stay long term in, although you will be non resident. The least people can do is turn up not looking like a scarecrow, cargo shorts is about as low as you can go when it comes to dress sense.

Well having been to the immigration office in both long trousers and shorts, i can honestly say the waiting time is just the same , the hoops to jump through are just the same, the fines and paperwork are just the same

so for me, shorts and some sort of shirt, and stuff em !

You can stay long term in NK, but you may not like the accommodation or the conditions

No it isn't. Why do you think people are moving to adjacent and nearby ones.
