As it happens I am off with the family this afternoon for a farm-stay in Kangaroo valley and after all this rain it's going to be muddy as anything.
I rather like the look of these (if money was no object)....
For those looking to achieve complete mankle hibernation.... Look no further

I looked into this a bit. The gun uses a nail for the firing pin, and most ammunition has metal components. First of all you can't buy ammunition in Australia without a gun license anyway, you can get plastic bullets, used for target practice or riot control, but they are pretty un-lethal, by the looks of things, as they don't contain any powder, only the primer charge. Ceramic bullets are an actual problem, though.
In regards to clothes, 'sprayable cotton' was developed a few years ago. It was really interesting to see develop, but seems to have died out. I think someone produced a t-shirt-in-a-can type product at one stage.
I believe you stuff shoes with newspaper rather than shoe trees when they are/get wet because it is less likely to change the shape, they aren't sprung like trees are, so don't exert as much force as newspaper. At least that's my understanding.
Bloody Phat Guido - always gets preferential treatment!
Alright, thanks HC. I was aiming to couple the tiny navy bits of the green square with the tie - didn't work out. Next time maybe.
I was thinking the grey could work with a black tie (it's kind of textured silk... but not quite grenadine. I'm out of my depth here). The brown with a light blue stripe tie, or even a navy and white stripe tie. And the blue/white stripe could work open neck with a navy sports coat. Obviously won't see until I test them out - so I'll wear and post in coming weeks and see what you guys think.
Looking at that picture makes me realise how much more I like spread and semi-spread collars at the moment.
Also, CT has a sale on shirts atm (don't they always?). ctshirts.com/aust2
edit: interesting, only works with .com, not .com.au
