Conflicted. Risk life in sea vs. Tropical Fruit World.
Dont hesitate ;)
I posted a nicely fitting shirt (for a 3 shirt order) and they replicated it perfectly. Very impressed.
From AUS you post the item to India, cost about $22 airmail w/ insurance.
Only bullet to dodge IMO are the fabrics: picture and real life can differ a bit, but great quality (I got a fine, a med weight and an oxford: med weight the winner)
Funny you should mention this. I got caught in that exact rip once, going back several decades when I was a teenager and a strong swimmer.
My memory is that I swam across the rip to some boulders that were piled up to form the south breakwall. I wasn't far away from the breakwall at the time, but it took all the strength in my body to get to those rocks. They were covered in limpets or some such, and I tore myself up a bit clambering out, but this was far preferable to the alternative.
Now, I may be wrong about this - it might have been Lennox Head or Evans Head, but I'm pretty sure it was Brunswick.
I've never forgotten that day. Scared the crap out of me.
Seems I have a knack for putting people off their trips. I think it was LonerMatt who was planning a winter trip to Canada and northeastern USA, until I warned him about the footwear requirements peculiar to those regions.
No one could put me off.
The drop in dollar and a bullshit tax return might have, though.
^^ I own a couple of mid-priced silk knits from other stores, and a budget one from Oxford Shop. All are marked "100% silk/Made in Italy". The Oxford Shop tie managed to develop some pulled threads just hanging in the wardrobe. It had never been worn!
