    30 waist? My 15 year old hasn't had a 30 waist since he was twelve. Who needs cammo when you can turn sideways and disappear?

    I was that way until I hit my mid 40's and then my chest fell to my belly and I had to start buying larger clothes.

    Your main concern will be the shoes/boots. As for shirts and jackets, concentrate on the medium-dark drab colors. I've worn some K-Mart shirts and shorts and WalMart jackets (fleece) on multiple safaris. Save your money for trophy fees and taxidermy!
