What if it's a party in the USA?

I don't think its anywhere near as pervasive in Australia as it is in the US. Still, I guess the internet means that traditions become global.

Don't think so it's been a purely commercial push by certain retailers

Oh undoubtedly - I am referring to the lack of pumpkins around, or people going to haunted house attractions

I have a pair of raw denim that I love and wear to death. It's a 14.5oz denim. It's also slightly too large for me now.

 

I just want something in a lighter weight and lighter wash for summer.

 

i was going to suggest:

but 30's and 32's are sold out.

MJ Bale News:
- New store opening in Brisbane
- Introduction of a new Cool Wool from the Woolmark Company

Anyone know about the Cool Wool thing?

Given that no one's turned up to my door, every kid at school was bored by Halloween and the near complete interest people have in it in Australia I'd say it's even a failed commercial venture.

 

Certainly doesn't signal some US-led cultural takeover of wickle Australia.

It's not really new, been around for ages. We used to carry it at Fletcher Jones. Just another name or tropical weight essentially. It's good stuff though.

Actually there are more kids roaming the streets in costume here tonight than we used to get in San Diego. Over there, they all went to the one place and the local businesses put on a party for them. If you weren't interested you could just ignore it. US parents do not let their kids roam the streets even in the nicest neighbourhoods.

All this brainwashing is down to lazy primary school teachers who find it easier to inculcate kids with American culture than our own. Bring back cracker night! It's never a bad idea to remind Parliment that we can blow them up.

The Baldwin Henley in the California Wash were I jean I always wanted to get but could never find my size.

Ended up getting the J Brand Tyler in Beatnik Wash a few months ago - http://www.farfetch.com/shopping/men/designer-j-brand-tyler-perfect-slim-jean-item-10350725.aspx

If I am honest I sometimes feel they are a little too "skinny" for me.

My other pair of washed jeans are a pair of Gant Dad Jeans (straight cut, almost too baggy for me) - I wear them most weekends with a rumpled button down and my Common Projects in a look I think of my "Andy Spade".

I am surprised and confused by the anti Halloween stance here.

As someone who spend many happy years in Scotland guising (UK version of treat or trick - basic you perform a little act, liked reciting a poem, for sweets) I do not see how there can be an issue with kids dressing up and having fun.

Yes. Ah, Guy Fawkes night (aka Bonfire Night). We used to have a party at my house every year and built massive bonfires with wood collected from around the neighbourhood and all along the beach (in sunny Edinburgh) was lined with bonfires and people (usually safely ) setting of fireworks.

Remember, remember the 5th of November.
