    I am very serious about opshops - most good shops will have excellent clothes brushes- stiff bristles - some with bone handles etc for a few $ - often in a zip up case with other things like nail clippers, shoe horn etc

    Oh I don't doubt it, I just wish I had the time and inclination to go op shop trawling. If only they had websites...

    ^^A bit tongue in cheek, but if I ran an inner city vinnies I'd certainly think about taking a photo and writing a quick description each day of some of the top quality arrivals and chucking them on a tumblr somewhere...

    The CBD opshops - Salvos, Brotherhood are over the top with prices and try to select for what they see as a CBD audience - they are possibly accurate and dont frequent clothing forums - generally atrocious stuff.

    I just do a 5 min run through on an opshop I'm driving past or come across in my travels.

    So I know every couple of pages there is a call out for a good hairdresser in [insert capital city here], but I might try again with another shot for Melbourne.

    I have been growing my hair out of late, and while I would like to keep growing it out, it’s getting quite wavy and curly and might need some shape added. I suspect that I will need a hairdresser who knows how to manage curls (surprisingly most can’t deal with them and just cut them back).

    Hard - you might check out Gazman or especially a Gazman "factory" outlet if theres one around - they sometimes have ok stuff not too expensive. Might be betetr for your purpsoes to look for a cotton/chino jacket.

    That Suit Supply stuff looks silly short for that kind of jacket.

    It appears we are going through a year or so of every off the rack jacket being too short, with even conservative brands going slightly bum freezer - (and some tighter) this will make it even harder than it has been to get a decent OTR/RTW jacket. Perhaps buying a long?

    I'm not sure 'coming up trumps' means what you think it means?

    Anyhoo, what about Uniqlo. I'm sure blahman or someone else could advise you on sizing.

    because they don't do kids sizes? [​IMG]

    yeh my colleage had same issue - 36S would have been perfect.

    after reviewing the sales on my site it looks like i should have stocked more smalls and probably add "extra-small" and not even bother with X-Large in future

    Clearly you've never played bridge/500 :)

    Really, the simplest thing would be for you to decide navy is ok after all. What was your logic for not wanting a navy jacket again?

    ^^ I get that, but particularly given your limited budget, that's a lot of trouble you're causing yourself just to get a slightly lighter shade of the same colour :/
