I don't drink, smoke, watch sports or gamble.

Frankly, Oli comes across as more of a Puritan than a Catholic.

With tastes like his I'm surprised the ALP even let him join.

Nah, not a racing fan. Not a fan of standing around in a crowd of drunken idiots either. I will make a donation to the Rivoli cinema instead.

Not too late to drop some dough on no. 19 PoP - Prince of Penzance.

I expect to be shouted beers by any Aus members who benefitted from my advice. Though quite why you'd need me to point out an old nag nicknamed PoP is a certain winner I'm not sure.

I'm champing at the bit to see pics of the new gear to be funded by this windfall. Depending on your bet you might have even won enough to cover my bar tab!

If I hadn't seen your post for the first time an hour ago, your prospects of seeing the new gear would have been much better :)

Hey guys, a few months ago someone (@HenryCarter?) was talking about a pants factory that manufactures for Epaulet and Howard Yount, and sell some of their own pants - does anyone have the name of the company?

 

Needing some flannel pants and maybe some moleskins (now live in England).

Matt, surely you can find moleskins and flannel trousers in the UK?  After all, that's where flannel and moleskin trousers originated!

 

Have a look at places like Cordings or Charles Tyrwhitt, as they usually have both flannel and moleskin trousers.

 

Moleskin trousers at Charles Tyrwhitt:

@fxh might be able to chime in with some other suggestions.

Matt - as JM says - you are in the home of "country clothing" which is what moleskins and cords etc are.

One thing about UK is that there are a lot of small stores around that have good clothing, shirts, tweed jackets, trousers, shoes even in very small towns/villages. You'll just stumble across them. When I say a lot - I mean not in every place but in what would seem here to be unlikely small places. Like say Camperdown or Terang but not say W'bool.

Peter Christian has a simple traditional UK range.

Thanks guys - there's actually a CT in town here in Cambridge (where I'm at), and I'll check that out. There are quite a few clothing stores, but many of them have so-so goods, but always a few gems!

Well I didn't want to bring the odds in too far!
