If you guys are buying premium gins at Australian prices you might want to try a better tonic water like Q Tonic. It will improve your GnT noticeably more and doesn't set you back $80 a bottle.I'd suggest putting away the $250 and saving for a higher budget. You likely won't find anything new of decent quality at that price.
What are the soles like? I could easily run through the soles on a pair of Tods in a month if I didn't have a big rotation. Lucky for me I found some great alternatives from Lacoste and other less costly brands but I'm really keen to find drivers with solid soles.
