Last couple of days have been bitterly cold as the wind is coming off the snow line seriously contemplating a Balaclava. Merde!

I have a dumb story involving a balaclava. Long story short me and my friends were into BB guns when we were kids and we were all going to the fields in one car...one of my friends stupidly put a balaclava on and started waving an uzi imitation BB gun at the cars behind us on a busy highway...u can guess how that ended

Bit of a random question, but I'm looking for hard wearing and relatively affordable pants. Essentially I find that with a 2.5 and 5 year old that most of my weekend time is spent running around and getting messy so have been running with some $20 costco chinos....but invariably with the quality not being great I have ended up with some pretty big holes pretty quickly!

My weeks are straightforward suits and ties - but I've always struggled with wearing anything nice running after the kids as I know it will cop a beating - I may have to just go with jeans - but thought I'd see if anyone has recommendations? I mean, maybe the answer is just to buy workwear?

I second Uniqlo!

They have trousers of varying fits and styles at reasonable prices; and quality that is probably a step up from Costco chinos.

The few pairs I own have been put through the weekends trials of toddler and baby activities.

Cords and moleskin. Hard to find locally but if you can wait 3 weeks try spier and Mackay.

I find summer much harder, and look forward to this time of year.

On an unrelated note. Does anyone know if American Tailors CJ sale is on? Do they usually offer a discount once or twice a year? Being in Sydney I can't just pop in so thanks in advance for any info.

Thanks all - don't know why I forgot about Uniqlo, that's an easy option and I'll keep an eye out for moleskin in a few weeks. Much appreciated!
