Treat it tough but don't get it wet.. Take a photo for us

Rob,

 

I got a 32 in the SL. Cos of my hips (they don't lie). I didn't size down/vanity size the 3-sixteens.

 

Brought it to an alteration place to slim the leg from the knee down.

 

For reference, I was a 30 in APC NS.

Just a question is Amfony Mundine the biggest knucklehead in Australian sport? Even by his standards the recent fight build up and losing debacle is hard to beat.

My son graduated recently with an Hons Bachelors in Visual Arts from Sydney. He is an artist at 23 and has had a couple of exhibitions. As someone who is cynical of modern university standards I am pleasurably surprised at his in-depth knowledge of his subject and the obvious quality of his instruction.

As an ex boxer I was suprised by the result - mundine broke Geale's guard on several points, and every exchange ended with Geale eating a sharp hook or straight. He was certainly the aggressor and controlled the fight but barely got a clean shot in.

Mundine is a great athlete - coming from rugby league he is a seasoned counter puncher and quick on this feet, though lacking in knock out power.

Most Aussie fighters OTOH are boxers/brawlers and are awkward on their feet which doesn't make for a great show. Sadly, Australian boxing will probably die with mundine.

Thanks Nabil

 

I have a 32 in the APC NS which are loose. Id probably fit a 31 new or a 30 if I were to hope for stretching haha

 

So id probably get 33 in the 3sixteen.

 

If you were going to buy again would you opt for the ST instead as they are apparently already tapered from knee down?

I don't think there's a lot of hate for them, just not a lot of love. As Rob said most of us are in a CBD environment and it just reflects that. Even for me, I'm from the country (Parkes) and still pretty much live in the country (just over the border in Queanbeyan) and my wifes family has a farm just out of town, but were not farmers and don't generally have a need to wear Akubra's etc.

Anyway here is today's very rushed fit


Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


Suit: Herringbone Sydney
Shirt: Cottonwork
Tie: Henry Carter un-tipped 7 fold
Shoes: Meermin MTO

When I bought the, the issue was more about the width of the thigh and the rise. Those were the deciding factors. I liked how the seat on the SL looked on me, over the seat of the ST (large arse). It was a fairly long time ago, though. I've lost some weight - so this is a difficult question to answer at this point of time, unfortunately.

 

The closest retailer, it seems, is in Singapore - http://www.thedenimstoreonline.com/

 

It's a little bit of a hike to try them on.

Not even the Pitt Street farmers wear Akubra's in the city.
