The Hat is probably the easiest item to select. We would suggest starting with a quality Mexican Sombrero which can be purchased directly here.
To accompany the hat we would also suggest that you look at either making or purchasing a handle-bar style Mexican moustache.
Next is the main garmet. The best option is a traditional Mexican Poncho which can easily be purchased here. Ponchos are comfortable, cover the most part of your body so they are warm and can be purchased in assorted colours and styles to make you look vibrant or like a Mexican Bandit if that is the look you are after. If you are looking to accessorize more with your Poncho than you can look to add some kind of Mexican scarf of a leather bullet belt slung over the Poncho. Alternatively you can also look to wear a short sleeve coloured shirt with traditional Mexican patterns as pictured below or a Mexican Charro embroided suit. This may be expensive to purchase but they look great and will really give you that The Tree Amigos costume look.
