If you're going to be a cripple, it's better to be a rich cripple.

Sydney people typically don't associate with those who live outside of their suburb

Never heard of the author or books until now. A quick search tells me its a kind of USA Tolkien - no thanks. I didn't like the UK Tolkien much. I have been dragged along to the interminable fillums though.

Amongst others I've just finished - Loose: A Wild History by Ouyang Yu - http://www.ouyangyu.com.au/ - highly recommended.

Some critics have put him up with Coetzee, Castro, David Foster and Gerald Murnane, I'm a bit less sure but its certainly a (post?) modern Australian book (I didn't call it a novel, although I think he does, its not quite a novel, not all fiction, some factual content, structured as a linear diary). Set in alternately the Melbourne mid to outer suburbs, where he lives when here, and China, about 10 years ago - it explores the couple of years in a Chinese poets life (erotic and otherwise) in Australia (or an Australian poets life in China) with none of the usual gratefulness, hes often as not angry, and it easily avoids the Australian Story TV happy endings of the contemporary migrant experience.

That's so wrong that I'm not even sure it counts as an opinion. Just an incorrect statement, really. satisfied.gif

Cheers mate.

I am a size 38 in MJB suiting, but tend to take a couple inches around the chest/waist area to fit nicely.

Given my thinner frame, will size 40 be a good fitt if intend on layering with this piece over a suit jacket let's say? Or is the fabric quite thin, and the design more suitable as a single outer layer for rainy weather over a business shirt?

I want to wear this only Monday to Friday for work, during mildly colder weather (Autumn/Spring) as well as on the odd occasion during rainy weather. I have a coat with removable wool lining in khaki which serves a similar purpose, but wanting something thinner and in navy for more versatility when weather a notch warmer.

The fabric is quite thin. A size 40 fitted me well while I was wearing a 38R suit. If you were to wear this over just a shirt, I would suggest a 38.

Belated pics from my anniversary. Shirt was actually a white with pale blue striped OCBD, however the person taking the photo used flash (outside) and it came out way too bright. Second pic is a better indication of colour.

Nice! I'm curious - why did you block out your face in the first when you left it as is in the second?

Due to the brightness of the pic and the colour of my complexion, all you saw was black ray-bans and brown hair flowing in the air. Looked weird so edited out the head.
