    fxh, please keep the info coming - I only came to Australia 11 years ago so this is all new and fascinating to me.

    Do you ever see flags and Cresknit cardigans in the op-shops that you visit?

    Gerry - they are the exact same ones in the pic above with the blue cardy.

    Hand made and most likely a one off design by Venus shoes - Melbourne

    No they are held on by the old sharpies who, unfortunately sometimes squeeze into them for reunions.

    In addition most of the later Sharpies took delight in shrinking them in the washing machine and wearing them pilled and shrunk. As I've mentioned by that time the Sharpies had ceased being a "movement" interested in clothes and music and become mobs of young rodent like thugs aping skinheads and wearing shrunken jeans and shrunken cardigans and liking only certain music.

    I reckon pricing on common services is a great idea for tailors/cobblers entries on the wiki.

    For instance as of 3 weeks ago getting a topy at Rekaris was $35, which is the cheapest in Melbourne CBD AFAIK.

    Sadly a lot of the history is written by some of the ones who came later and enjoyed the violence. They have a limited context. If you read the forums, sadly, many are still in and out of prison.

    I'm not interested in the later stage at all - but the earlier stage and the clothes.
