Two years ago I "Insect Shield[ed] My Own Clothes." (See details here: https://www.insectshield.com/ISYOC.aspx) I had them work their magic on my typical backpacking uniform (Marmot Arch Rock pants & Patagonia l/s Sun Stretch shirt). Made a big difference and still very effective after dozens of washes.
I'm still rather convinced that you can achieve more than you've ever dreamed of if you just lower your standards.

They now have Easy Packs, which is basically a mailing envelope that you can stuff with as many clothes as can fit for one price. I sent a bunch of clothes earlier this year and it works great! (My wife HATES bugs)
