Indeed! "Tis a fine drop, especially when on tap (which is rare, and certainly wasn't this night). Cooper's Pale is the standard beer in the fridge at home, but I've got say I've been enjoying some of the Pirate Life brews (the IIPA in particular) as well when out and about in Adelaide-town.
I think that's the game for them. you've just triggered my memory again - it was mentioned that they have (or are close to) signed a deal with two US department stores to supply product. The downside is the quality required for them to supply to the US market will drop their (annual, monthly, ?? not sure - we were drinking Sparking Ale, but I'm going to go with annual) production from 750k boots to 500k boots. I'm guessing this is related to variation (or, rather a need...
Met a fellow who works at RMW the other night in their procurement area. Was quite an interesting chat - apparently sales of the Signature Craftsmans have actually increased yoy since they hiked the price from $600 to $1000. Seems people find the boots more desirable the higher the price gets (well, to this point at least).   Apparently they have an MTO program as well which I never knew (and wouldn't bother with given the range of sizes and widths they already produce)....
Well, that certainly generated some discussion and a good range of responses to invetigate.   Personally, looking at the photos posted, I tend to side with @lachyzee in that I'm not a great fan of the Barbour and M65 type coats with the more formal office look. They do work well as casual wear though. Some of the puffer options look neat, as does the Mac and also the peacoat which I'm a big fan of, but contemplating whether it'll actually get cold enough to...
Speaking of being late to the party and all that... I'd like to get some thoughts on what style would make a good winter coat for Adelaide wear. I work in a fairly informal office environment - trousers and a shirt with no tie is pretty formal in this place - so I'm looking for something that can be worn over a shirt. I'm not big on sweaters and don't see the point in buying a suit when trousers from MJ Bale suffice for everything except the walk to and from work (and a...
Really SF??? Is this your doing @Ernesto?
 That is indeed the group - I did look it up a few days ago, but it slipped my mind when typing out the post above. I haven't looked at in detail or tried any suits on, so can't really comment on them. But I'm happy with the shirt brand (I think they have a few) I got there.
 Yes, Michael was saying most stuff is sourced from NZ. One of the shirts I ended up with was a brand called Wayward Heir - nothing fancy, just a good solid cotton shirt which manages to work extremely well with my body type.
   Indeed it is - not sure how I overlooked that! Thanks for the feedback guys - I am a fan of the Filson 'look', so think I'll follow my instincts in that direction.
Should have mentioned the shirts are needed for a new job. And as I have a new job, I want to get me a brief case for carrying lunch and maybe some relevant paperwork and a MS Surface tablet computer thingy about.   I like the look of the Filson stuff (particularly the Otter Green 256 briefcase - which can be had from here for ~$390 delivered). Again, just wondering if there are any other options worth considering at that kind of price point? The Missus mentioned Fossil...
