Do you have any suggestions on where I can find organic cotton clothing and more minimalist shoes without breaking the bank? Thanks in advance!

More likely hed be naked. There's genetic evidence (hair lice) that clothing only came a significant way through.

$100 for Vibrams? No thanks. I'll take these cross country flats for $30 or less. Don't buy brand or hype, but what you want and why you want it.

On organic clothing:

Fair indigo sells affordable organic clothing. Their sale prices are especially friendly. http://www.fairindigo.com/Clothing-Men/b/6482689011?ie=UTF8&title=Clothing

Loomsgate sells organic cotton and bamboo clothes.http://www.loomstate.org/

True Paleo lifestyle would be living out in the wilderness hunting with a barebow or a spear and making clothes out of their skins.

I personally love vivobarefoot for more cold weather shoes, I have one pair of road-style running shoes, and one pair of "lifestyle" shoes for more every day wear. When it's warm enough I love me a pair of luna sandals, and really that's all I need. I don't think spending big bucks on minimalist shoes is a necessity, but I certainly enjoy mine.

Bearskins, loin cloth.

Seriously Paleo living doesn't mean going to REI and paying big $$$ for minimalist clothing. I'd go to Kmart or similar and buy some cheap duds, that's what a true cave dude would do. He/she would conserve resources to use on more important things.

May I recommend hemp. You will in fact break the bank, but the cloth lasts decades. Due to family heirlooms, I still have a couple hemp bedsheets from my grandmother dowry, circa 1924. And I use them. I also have hemp shirts.

Im fond of lose fitting cotton and bamboo pants. Yoga/leisure, and 3/4, and chino style. They are usually cheap. For shoes, I don't like the look or feel of toe shoes, but for wide toe barefoot shoes, vivobarefoot are stylish and very comfortable. They aren't cheep though, but they last awhile, and are IMO very worth it.

I've been wearing DASH RunAmocs since last August as my casual everyday shoe. I love them so far. They look like normal shoes when worn with pants.

Niche products will always cost more. As I understand it, there are now minimalist shoe brands that don't look so...hippy, which may be worth looking into.

Also, don't say 'paleolithic lifestyle', you're going to give people the wrong impression.
