 Cox, I think that I've gently said this before, but I think that it's worth repeating - in my humble opinion, you should cut back on impulse purchases of clothing that you don't need, particularly when it's very similar to stuff that you've already got, and instead use your discretionary funds to buy things that you really want, that fill a hole in your wardrobe, that will serve you well.  At the risk of sounding patronising, although something might be on sale, it's not...
 What use is a sale when there's nothing on sale worth buying?!?

 DB - I haven't been to R&R since they re-located to the James St precinct down at the Valley/New Farm border.

 Holy heck, yes. 
 LJ - I think that an army-green (ie khaki) overcoat could work, but only as long as there was some sort of texture or weave to set it apart from an actual army overcoat.  So, if it were made out of casentino cloth, or in a herringbone weave or barleycorn tweed weave or something like that, I think that it could work well. If it's just khaki in a plain weave, though, I don't think that it would look so good.
