    Well then good riddance! The style-o-meter for Australia would go up if any of those stores go bust.

    This, with a dash of Man To Man thrown in for good measure.

    Either way, good riddance to bad rubbish.

    Massive a trip to Vinnies/Salvos will turn up any number of orphan jackets for like AUD5-25.

    I understand it Vinnies, but I don't get it a proper shop. What is the point of an orphaned jacket at any price let alone a grand?

    For the same reason there are dufuses out there that buy a suit with a jacket they can pair with their jeans. I'm not talking colours either - those guys that buy black suits.

    I've seen one of those Ed Garry stores, on my one and only stroll down one of Australia's pedestrianised city malls. A terrible, terrible memory.

    Ed Harry, just one of many smalltime menswear chains prolifferating shopping malls throughout Australia. Still, their closure signals job losses, and that's never something to celebrate.

    Not every shoe need be chisel toed, my friend. Here's mine from that shoemaker.
    As far as he's concerned they do, as that's what he likes.

    What I don't get is that whenever a store decides to target the 'middle age men' market, their clothing is always shit fugly.

    Agreed.
    From a purely economic point of view, I would rather those workers be employed in a more efficient industry than low-end men's retail anyway. At least with the economy doing well there is more chance of those workers being able to move into another job in another industry.

    FWIW I constantly see signs in shops advertising positions vacant for SAs in Sydney... Almost tempted to take on a second job to feed my habit.
