Hi, All,

I'm in Sydney for the next few days. Have you got any advice for where to go for raw denim? Or anything in general for casual wear? I will be in Surry Hills with family. Thanks!

Best,
Andrew

There is a guide called Slices of Sydney it lists the 'groovier' stores and their locations. Being in Surry Hills you could try Crown St or wander up to Oxford St Paddington which has Incu who have a range of denim.

Yeah I use to think the AE was good but now I prefer the Loake.  Eitherway you may want to consider looking into the AE now with their rediscover america sale.  If it turns out you like them you could always hit up their outlets in the state for cheaper ones to build up a range.

Paddington transport = buses. Peaceful, good (trendy) retail, but a little bit expensive.
Wollstonecraft transport = train station. Quiet suburban area; close to Crows Nest shopping area.
Annandale transport = buses. Semi suburban. Aircraft noise, and Parramatta road is horrendous. Don't bother going out West unless you really want to.
Surry Hills = walking distance. Not that quiet, but a really nice area nonetheless. Lots of bars and eateries.

Thanks kayhill.

Have been to Sydney plenty of times but usually stay in the CBD so good to get some info.

In my, humble, opinion if you're going to work in the 'CBD' area of the ' Sydney CBD' the only sane way to get to work is to catch the ferry. So live in a suburb where you have a 2 minute walk to the ferry, and you'll literally save yourself developing numerous wrinkles over your working career.

I noticed that television companies were whinging about Australia's enormous illegal downloading numbers, but even in mainstream media the problem is recognized as resting on greedy supply companies who bottleneck media.

As you lot know, this problem isn't constrained to television. Can anyone foresee a situation in the future where this will change?

If you aren't a standard fitting, I think AE are hard to beat at that price point. Pretty much all their shoes come in a variety of widths. However if you are blessed with a US D or a UK E then, as others have said, whichever takes your fancy.

Yes, when both the various copyright owners and consumers are made an offer they can't refuse. Assuming you are mainly talking about TV and film, look at what's happened with music. Prior to iTunes it was regarded as an intractable problem with the major labels bickering and complaining but presenting no solution.

This article tells the story well. http://www.engadget.com/2013/04/29/the-itunes-influence-part-one/

I'm not saying that music piracy is a thing of the past, but it seems to me that by and large we have moved on.

We need an iTunes style solution for film and TV. And I don't think that the existing iTunes film and TV offering is there yet.

Doubt it people are enticed to buy the biggest HD TV with cinema sound and then find that they have to wait months for DVD release, this is the case with cable mind you HBO is in real time, BBC has sold out to Murdoch and now cable gets the pick of their first run productions. The companies create the desire then don't satisfy consumer desire so what are people going to do?

Get in touch with member Romp on this thread and see if he can hook you up with some 3sixteens (still the best mid-range raw option IMO).

Great I had a look and think I'll go with the Loake. Now to decide whether to go with Pediwear and get free shoe trees or buy from Herring and get shoe trees from elsewhere (Double Monks?)

Anyone had experience and can comment?

I have 3sixteens. Wearing them now. Super nice. Checkout blue Owl if Romp can't help you.
