Default Best place to get good clothes at good prices...

Like I said my hubby will be going there sometime in the next few weeks. He plans to get some heavy clothes while he is there. What is the best place to get good winter clothes at good prices? I have seen Cabela's website; the store looks awesome but it is probably high priced, or not? What do you all recommend?

First, the best time of the year to purchase winter gear in in mid-January to mid-February. That is when the retailers are trying to get rid of the winter gear so that they clear space for the spring merchandise. Kohl's usually starts the markdowns around January 10th and JC Penney's around January 24th.

Cabela's is not particularly expensive. I would definitely check it out.

It depends on what you consider expensive, and what quality you want. I mean, you can get decent winter clothes at Wal-Mart. Target has slightly better stuff.

Or you can pay more and get Cabela's, Columbia, North Face, etc. I'm a tightwad, but I step up and buy nice outerwear from Columbia because it is quality stuff.

If you are looking more for "work" wear, look for Carhart stuff from Cabela's, Tractor Supply, The Mercantine, etc.

Buy it soon. We had to replace a winter coat for a kid once in mid-January, and all the winterwear stuff was already clearanced out of Wal-Mart, Target, Shopko, Sears, etc. Cabela's tends to keep winter stuff a little longer, but not much.

However, this is a perfect time to buy, since so much of it is discounted deeply as we go into the coldest time of the year!

Same here. For the outerwear we will do quality; one seems to get what they pay for.



Good info. Thanks a lot! I think he will be doing some serious shopping.

JC Penney has some selection for the Big and Tall area, one may want to also check Kohl's. I would agree that Columbia and North Face along with other things at Cabela's may be a little more expensive but woud be of better quality and more durable. Scheel's is similar to Cabela's in that they have some outerwear stuff and similar stuff, but I am not sure whether they have exteneded sizes, etc. but it would be good to check them out.

I love Cabelas, but I have found better clothing deals at Bass Pro in Council Bluffs. Great markdowns can occur at both stores. Especially for dressier clothes, don't forget Burlington Coat Factory.

Guess I am not catching just exactly where you are going? If you are after some decent work clothes for outside. Tractor Supply or Boomgars farm stores have some quality clothing and some good prices I always thought. But then again they have limited selection. Cabelas is good, got to admit if it doesn't come out of their bargain corner I usually don't buy there. I have to agree with Madpie on BassPro, I have picked up better bargains there also than what I have found at Cabela's.

I'm not sure what part of the state you plan to be in, but I also really like Dick's Sporting Goods or Scheels for some of that outerwear stuff. Sometimes they are cheaper than Cabela's. Omaha has Dick's, and Lincoln and Omaha both have Scheels. I live out west, and often visit Dick's Sporting Goods in Denver.

Sierratradingpost.com is another good website for outdoor clothing. Some of their clothes are dirt cheap; others are pretty expensive.
