    All my clothes are falling apart

    No, there will be no picks.

    The issue is I a bit large for Costa Rica, so it is hard to find clothes, shoes, etc. So, what I was wondering, oh wise shoppers, if you were looking for jeans and comfortable clothes for jungle wear, what on-line store would you shop at?

    I figure I will just order a new wardrobe and have it sent here.

    Oddly enough, I found some really good deals on clothes at http://www.happychefuniforms.com/

    Seeing as they're generally work clothes meant to be worn in busy restaurant kitchens, they might do for your jungle adventures.

    And they have an outlet store right across the street from me... right next to the microbrewery.

    I actually like the stuff from REI. Patagonia, North Face, etc. Is there a price point you are looking at?

    Really, all I need is what people would hike in, but in cotton. Since we are never cold, cotton doesn't kill.

    Most of what they have is 100% cotton or a poly/cotton blend.

    They even have these, which have mesh inserts behind the knees to help keep you cool.

    I want to get a couple pairs of these and these, which are 100% cotton and I don't usually wear shorts...

    And their prices are insanely low.

    Not really, I can buy just about anything I want, but I don't tend to spend for something that is not worth it.

    Usually, jeans. We have a lot of barbwire fence, and I tend to find it.

    Despite the fact the fixie crowd has latched onto the irony, Carhartt makes some decent work clothes that hold up well. I have some of their heavy Winter gear and it lasts for many years. They have shorts and jeans too. Not sure where you can order it, but you can check out the styles.

    I'd go with REI.. If not. Is not hemp popular south of the border. As it was in George Washington's time.

    When I was in Panama I met an older retired guy from California who lived in Costa Rica with a PSYCHOTIC much younger girlfriend. Very weird those two were.

    Damn straight!

    The only reason I've ever had to get rid of Carhartt clothing is that it gets to a point where it actually looks too dirty and beat up to take to a construction or demolition job. I've never, ever worn out anything by Carhartt, and I am not nice to almost anything I own, least of all working gear.
