    I hope that you have a great time in Melbourne - the exhibition sounds interesting.

    By the way, if anyone is contemplating heading to Japan for a holiday, Jetstar is currently running a "fly one way, get the return leg free" sale, with return flights to Japan from $349 (depending on your departure point).

    http://www.jetstar.com/au/en/japan-return-for-free

    It looks as though school holidays are excluded (naturally), but you can pick up flights from now through to December this year. If you want to bring carry on luggage, you'll need to pay an extra $90 each leg, but a return flight to Japan for $529 is still pretty damned good!

    The deal finishes next Tuesday, 19 April.

    I've only seen (proper) woollen flannel, as opposed to worsted, at American Tailors occasionally, and Henry Bucks almost always some. From memory HBs was around $300+

    They do have a heel and that bit up the side (foxing I think its been called - not sure) isn't all sole but is the crepe run up the side as a sort of protection.

    Its not that great but you can spend and entertaining 2 hours there. I think there's still a small clothing exhibition upstairs associated with the "Blue" exhibition IIRC. Strangely they had info and clothes and dying with indigo etc from centuries ago but nothing on denim!!!

    Its also Record Shop Day tomorrow and Melbourne has millions of record shops - many with live gigs tomorrow- check out the maps of what's on. There's a fair few shops within walking distance of the "Arts Precinct"

    Do you mean checked luggage is extra?
