Since I'll be coming in on a Friday night, maybe I'll try to beat the jet lag and get up extra early Saturday to get out there before I start my sightseeing.
Oh, and getting back (well, closer, at least) to the original topic of this thread, what do the RM Williams Craftsman boots run in Australian dollars?
P.S. Sorry about the Socceroos---you guys were robbed (Guus was Holland's last hope in the tournament, so the Dutch commentators were highly supportive of the Australian side).
Yeah, the game was a heart breaker. It sounded like everyone was on the side of the underdogs that hadn't been to the World Cup for over 30 years. I've never seen them play that brilliantly though - all thanks to Guus.
For standard retail pricing and a glance through their entire catalogue I would refer you back to the RM Williams website:http://rmwilliams.com.au/home.asp
As for Charles Nakhle bespoke shirts - I can't speak highly enough of them . Girls also can't keep their hands off perfectly fitting quality cotton shirts and they'll paw them all the time (don't tell your GF - shift discussion to BBQ sauce
). Definitely worthwhile making a trip if you love the best in menswear. Shame there's not much else out West of Sydney. I'd make my way back into the centre of town as quickly as I could once I'd finished there.
If you come home with a bespoke shirt or two and a pair of RM Williams boots, you would have stuff of genuine
quality rather than the overpriced junk most boutiques with harbour views offer.
BTW here is some info on the Tax Return scheme:http://www.customs.gov.au/webdata/re...__english1.pdf
Minimum purchase on one receipt is $300 AUD to qualify. Hmmm... I am tempted to buy another pair of boots myself to claim tax back as I am heading off to Boston on business around the time you will arrive here!
