My fellow Clydes (and lovely Athenas)...
I bought a bike last week and have done a few commutes with it thus far. It's a fairly nice 6 miles each way, rolling, with a big (to me) hill each way. I have always been a big sweat machine (even when I was much slimmer, I guess I'm just inefficient)...and it rains a lot here in Seattle...so I think that for the sake of my co-workers and folks that I meet with throughout the day, I should wear "biking clothes". I have a shower at work, so I can hose down there.
I'm an XL, and have no qualms about wearing tights. Here is what I'm looking at getting, is there something else I should consider...or places to find better prices? I feel kind of dumb about "proper" attire as I am just getting going.

I'm really enjoying riding, and am itching to ride again tonight. I'm looking for stuff that will make that much easier to do and keep me on the bike more and more.
I know the Commuting forum might be the better place to ask this, but I spend the most time in this forum...and you guys are very helpful to new guys like myself...
