MY Clothes Shopping in San Pedro

Buying clothes, for me, is pretty difficult in San Pedro.  There are quite a few boutiques in town but I find that most of the clothes are either way too dressy (all of my shirts do not need to be bedazzled), way too small or made of the itchiest possible synthetic nylons.

Basic cotton shorts and tank tops in non-teen sizes are tough to find.   Let me tell you where I find my best stuff (second only to ordering it on-line and having it delivered by a visitor).

Used Clothing Stores.  There are a few of them in town (mostly on side streets or back streets).  And I have recently found this one in DFC.  Ok, so they could use a new sign…this one doesn’t exactly scream fashion, but they’ve got a ton of stuff in here.

Everything is well worn.  But hey, everything I own down here is well worn.  My washing machine must have some sort of special setting that ages all clothes two months with each load.

Lalito has items ranging from Lily Pulitzer baby clothes to boy’s board shorts to Talbots old lady dresses to 1,000 pairs of shorts (many with the high waists circa 1989) to cool old t-shirts from Mexican construction companies to men’s monogrammed dress shirts from someone named SJ Lee to bras with stretched out elastic (ick).  You are picking up what I am laying down, right?

I picked up a nice pair of well worn khaki old Navy shorts.  Price?  $5bzd.  You can’t beat it.  Plus like they always say “beggars can’t be choosers”.

  • I still laugh at the comment that Maya said to Tacoboy after a swap at Pedros one night.
    “You know paul I am really glad that I was able to get your shorts, they are great.”

    Almost spilled my beer on that one.

  • you always make me laugh! I love shopping trips to used clothing stores–you never know what you will find!

    You absolutely never know. I´m going to do a round up of all the used clothing stores when I get back to SP.

  • How did I miss this post? I haven’t had the need for too many new clothing items since we only moved down here in Aug 2011 and brought plenty with us, but eventually I’m going to need to hit some of these used clothing stores — I’m not proud!
