UK firm Peter Christian were once recommended on this forum for moleskins but I have not tried them myself yet. Looking at the website, they might be squatters!
I suspect he'll be an instant success! Have you got any more like him we could have?
Re: the factory shop at Frost Rd, Salisbury, it has factory seconds for $220 all year round. There is usally about 2 dozen per size on display but you can also ask if they have anything else 'out the back'. I don't think they sell seconds at Percy St.
Herring 'Jackie', similar to the Loake above, is also a nice one.
December, according to my 2008 catalogue B529 is described as 'medium toe' and can be combined with the flat, rubber and ladies heel. Styles available are: turnout jodhpur, gardener, bass, gammon, wentworth, bushman, territorian and pilbara. It appears rounder than the Queenslander, which is B536.

Right again there FXH, except that I think I might have seen an RM safety boot. In SA we would draw your attention to Rossi Boots whose hiking boots are well regarded here as well as the safety and work boots. their website is worth checking out. the blunnies are all over the place though.
Spot on fxh! Being middle aged I remember that ubiquitous 'uniform' well and you have described it accurately. Perhaps because there was always the 'seconds' shop in Adelaide they crept into wider business use more commonly. Sounds like part of you knows your siblings were right to give you that ribbing! Those pale moleskins are still popular in SA, I got green and burgundy though. It never gets a mention on this forum but the 'classic' RM (you don't use the...
