    Everyone should go batshit with online shopping from the US - the AUD just fell again. The dream is almost over chaps.

    I've got a tan 256 and I absolutely love it.

    I'm thinking of picking up a navy at some stage, too.

    Which colour are you after?

    I'll be heading to the Denim Store in Singapore, which stocks filsons. Would be happy to bring one back for you, if they have the bag in the colour you're after.

    I know you're in Brisbane - but I'm guessing shipping between Sydney and Brisbane will be remarkably cheaper.

    On another note - anyone here who wears Common Projects?

    Wondering if their advice on sizing down is advisable.

    You could get the FIlsons off ebay, too. I've noticed people will charge 1/3rd the shipping there.

    Probably - I'm not so gah gah for Goodyear welting. I can't imagine that shoes I wear will require much re-soling (I topy).

    I wouldn't panic - the GBP has been on a slide vs the USD just as we have been on an up with USD and GBP.

    The GBP isn't going to get any better with the usd any time soon.

    I don't see the aud getting less than 82c and possibly only getting to 85C in the next 5 years.

    But who knows ..??

    What I can say with some certainty, or not, is that it will probably be a random walk down to 85C or so. Or higher. Or lower.

    85C is only $10- 15 in a $100 - $40 - $60 in $400 - different than now. Prices here will both come down as an effect of retailers realising that we can shop online and some prices here will go up. But income will probably rise by at least CPI over the next 5 years. CPI increases on income over 5 year might well = the drop in aud/usd cost. Or it might not.

    I wouldn't be hedging my money just yet. Certainly not with CBA Financial Planners
