Getting back in to selling Husbands clothes and Boots and etc items after 10 year of traveling.
Shipping has changed since then.
Trying to figure out the best and also cheapest way.
And also use free shipping supplies.
I did not see any large size envelopes for jeans they were smaller.
So I bought some plastic large envelopes.
But not sure if I can just put priority labels on them
appreciate any help I can get

You can use any box or envelope to ship Priority, as long as you print Priority postage. If an item is below 13 ounces you can ship it First Class parcel.

On the USPS pages where you can order the free boxes, you can also order stickers to put on your plain boxes. This will help avoid the risk of them being handled as if they were Parcel post packages.

For regular Priority Mail, you can use a regular box.
But if you are shipping Priority Mail FLAT RATE (box or envelope) or REGIONAL RATE, you MUST use the appropriate Priority Mail FR or RR box.

On a similar note, I have a question. If you have a Priority Mailing Box (not a Flat Rate or a Regional Rate), do you still have to use Priority Postage?
I have something that is 12 oz, which could be shipped First Class, but I only have Priority Mailing Boxes at home.

Of course you can use your own boxes/envelopes. Shipping by Priority isn't limited to the boxes offered by USPS.
