A grenadine isn't conservative? 
I wouldn't mind knowing that either. Anyone who has both who can give their 10c?
Admittedly I don't think their an essential on the East Coast of Australia the diacotomy of the seasons is between pants weather and "too hot for pants" weather.I just go with a four seson fabric (110 super merino).They seem to have a special place in the British psyche - both Cameron and Miliband claim to shop there.

Whereas the average Aussie bloke will spend $150-250 on a pair of kicks from Florsheims/Aquila...
Hornsby station public toilet is weirdo central - the stalls are just as frightening. 
They're great. Only downside is that their very slim and their fullest fit (the 'slim fit') only comes in a couple of models.  Does anyone know if its okay to spray suede with a disinfectant?  An Indian man at Hornsby peed on my chukkas at the urinal.
