    Every year when hunting season rolls around I get my hunting clothes out of the closet and put it on. I think it must be the cheap camo crap that shrinks hanging up. WTH? Anybody else have this problem?:D

    I have the opposite problem! I'm already fat, so the folks that make cloths think that if you weigh 230 pounds, as I do, that you must be at least 6'8" tall!

    I have the opposite problem, when I try and find jeans with a 36" inseam they assume I must be fat as well as tall.

    My camo's are issue BDU's, they were real nice and gave me new uniforms about a month before booting me on a medical discharge. What's bad is they were from my "fat" stage, and I find them fitting pretty well now...:mad:

    I wear a 30" inseam. My legs, and arms are a little on the short side for a fellow that is 5'11''.

    I always buy whatever cammo clothing I buy, and extra size than what I actually wear. Not only for weight gain, but can always wear other clothing underneath.

    I started some time back on a ghillie suit. All but have the bottoms done.
    (two piece) Lot of hours goes into making them and if done right, they will last!
    As I started the bottoms, I'm makeing them so you can add on or take away for whatever environment, in the field. Just takes ALOT of time, but well worth it.

    I have the same problem, I tell my wife it must be the heat setting on the dryer that causes it to shrink......she doesn't believe me. :D

    Don't make the same mistake I did. I used 100% Jute twine on mine. The jute produces tiny particles of jute dust, so as you walk you you inhale the dust. I cannot wear it because it gives me a terrible allergy attack. In addition, the dang thing is a fire hazzard. After all that jute comes unwound, it is more flammable than a dried out Christmas tree.
