Archie Rose is probably my favourite gin these days.
Distilled in Sydney with Australian botanicals.
Need a pair of cheap boat-shoes to wear, you guessed it - with no socks. Out after school to Milo cricket, on the deck, down to the beach.
Will take some abuse.
No large amounts of money need change hands. Where in a suburban shopping mall, or in the CBD can I pick up a pair.
Blue (or brown) uppers, white/brown slim sole in the Topsider moccasin style with laces. (Not with chunky soles, as in the Timberlands you see people walking around in).
I don't care if they are from Target and cost 20 dollars. Infact, I could buy 2 pairs.
I see that Kmart have a West Coast pair for $60 which I think is a bit suspect. There is another pair but the styling is a bit pretentious.
I see I could get a pair of Lee Coopers from SportDirect for $18 plus shipping.
