cycle clothes

as a newbie I need some advice. Where can us clydesdale get cycle clothes? I'm not talking lycra race style gear but stuff which is loose, light, easydry and looks ok.
baggy style MTB shorts is what I'm after but here in the UK the XXL in cycle shorts is 38-40inch waist.
Can any of you help?

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the links but I need UK based retailers.

Here we have all the stuff that you guys have in the US to put on the pounds and inches (KFC, McD's, Dunkin Do's etc) but we need to play cathup when it comes to big clothing.

cheers,
