    Never understood why one needs "special" clothing to basically go on a roadtrip ... wear what is in your cupboard. If you work in an office environment then wear what you would normally wear over the weekend.

    Marketing piranha's have to many people by the danglies ... whether it be what you need to get around in the bush wrt vehicles, camping equipment, food, clothing etc.

    Choose fabrics according to climate:

    Cotton: Good wicking properties, killer fabric in winter when wet, no thermal property. Hard wearing, cool in summer
    Linen: Expensive but cool, good wicking properties, medium wearing, not good in the cold
    Wool: Excellent thermal qualities in colder temps, works well when wet, doesnt burn easily, light and medium weights but possibly too warm for Africa except at night in winter
    Tech fabrics: Cool, SPF rated, good wicking properties, scorches/melts/burns easily, fire sparks will burn holes in it, but can be rolled up when packed so saves space. Low maintenance laundry.

    Styles/designs are up to you

    This thread takes me back to my last Vic falls visit.

    For sure there were some wrong clothes choices. The number of undies wedged into places they were never meant to go was one of those what has been seen can not be unseen moments.
    Lusted for a Landy but the Pajero was sexier and bigger in the right departments, just like my Missus.

    Thanks in advance
    African Nature has closed their shop in Westlake. When we last visited there whilst they were closing down the staff told us that they have been taken over by Sportsmans Warehouse.

    Sometimes not so easy to do in Africa, but be the grey man, blend in, don't look like a tourist that bought his outfit at the airport duty free, felt hats with that zebra skin are a no no, unless you clearly a guy who dips a skaap choppie in his coffee every morning

    You only need one underpant per 4 days if you know how to wear them correctly each day

    Which is a pity because some of their ''fishing'' oriented clothes I still have and wear and were purchased back in the early 2000s.

    It seems they have lost direction a bit from their origins

    I hear what you say, but I think what we are trying to achieve is to stock the cupboard with COMFORTABLE and climate appropriate clothing in the first place. When you play tennis, you have tennis clothes, when you gym, you have gym clothes, if you are a welder you have a welders overall, corporate you have a suit.

    So the OP is trying to find appropriate and comfortable outdoor wear, nothing more, nothing less.

    I much prefer interacting with a person in proper khakis than some dude in jean shorts with his wang staring at you tucked down his one leg. Just my opinion, wear your jean shorts if you want.

    Everything is about keeping the profit margins without blowing up the price. I installed a Defy extractor hood for a client this week. Used the same thing last year, but the quality has gone down significantly. The stainless sheeting is paper thin. But it still costs R899. It didnt increase 10% over the last year, not even the last 2 years. Same product adapted to be sold at the same price 2 years later. Something has to give, it can only be quality, because it wont be profit by the reseller!
