    I have a pair of the Grenson's Sharp, although they are a lighter tan then the eBay pic. Love them and rock them whenever I get the opportunity. Picked them up in London last year for £180ish (the Grenson store was actually next door to my hotel).

    No time like the present to start! It's a very frustrating first 6 months learning to cast, read the water etc etc but once you grass that first fish there is no looking back.

    Anyway back to clothes.

    Have you considered Made in USA workboots such as Chippewa, Wolverine, Thorogood and Red Wings?

    So... the mail forwarder did not run off with my money and my Uniqlo order has arrived.

    Navy linen summer (duh) jacket.
    - Unstructured
    - Completely unlined bar the sleeves
    - Nice enough linen. Not the scratchy kind I expect.
    - Regular fit is like a tent.

    Need to go take in 2" from upper back to 4" around the waist to make it fit nicely. Good thing there isn't any lining in the way. Might make it a diy task. Had quite a bit of fun fiddling with my old Ben Sherman suit last year.

    First, I'll give it a good wash.

    How much were the MTO? and how do you even manage that? send a trace outline of your foot? haha

    Have you done anything about the extra room around the heel and instep?

    ^^they definitely make nice shirts. I warn you that they fit like the proverbial tent though. Be prepared to spend a bit on tailoring. If you're more generously proportioned they could work nicely.

    Im slowly moving up the food chain and am finding myself attending a few balls. Thinking of buying a tux, where is the best places to see in the Sydney area?

    Definitely check out the Opera House and take a ferry ride to Manly or Watsons Bay. You should also go to Bondi Beach, surely a must see.
