    Don't look past the Dugdale books.

    The Dugdale Fresco that I have multiple pairs of pants in is extremely hard wearing.

    Hi guys

    On Saturday we are heading off to the frozen North for our holidays. Most of my friends think I am certifiably mad, and I'm starting to suspect they're right.

    We'll be spending most of our time in Norway, going as far North as Tromso, taking a cruise up the fjords on the way. On the way back we'll make whistlestops in Stockholm and Copenhagen. It'll certainly be different to the usual Aussie summer holiday.

    I'm told that Scanidnavia is horrifically expensive, so I'm not expecting any sartorial bargains. Maybe in Bangkok airport en route, perhaps.

    Catch up with you in a few weeks

    You have to cross post that in the main forum. Heck, even start its own thread. I'm going to cut that image and paste it on my facebook wall.

    It neatly encapsulates everything that is wrong with the world today.

    BTW I went into Lloyds today for a laugh. Who can guess how much the premium Goodyear welted shoes (1888 line) sell for in Melbourne?

    Had the strangest experience in Myer today. Went in to look for some new bathers and:

    1. found they had the range and brands I was looking for;
    2. had my size; and
    3. had 30 per cent off making the prices very reasonable.

    Walked out a happy chap. Very weird.

    Might be worth checking out the op shops in Scandinavia. I have this idea that they'd be full of awesome stuff.

    I believe you mean Comfortable/Relaxed (using our HB guide). Also casual and possibly delicate. I like it though.

    We'll be in Northern Italy mid June for a week or two, and the UK for a couple of weeks from early July (undecided in between as yet!), so probably won't overlap unless Italy is near the end of yours :)

    I can't remember - must be a supressed memory - but I rember walking in to their Sydney Centrpoint store and laughing - out loud - when I flipped up the sole ...what was it, close to $1,000?

    Here's a question:

    I take UK size 7- 7.5, it varies depending on the brand.

    I have Church's, L'Stony and Lloyds in UK size 7, all of which fit very well.

    I have these Cheaneys in UK7. Unforunately, they are too small. 7.5 would probably be perfect in this style.

    I went and measured my foot on a Brannock device, which gives US sizes, and it said size 10. Additionally, the sizing chart from the Allen Edmonds website also said I'm a US size 10.

    Everything I've read says there is one digit difference between UK and US sizes.

    So the question is, is this usual? Has anyone else had a similar experience?

    Cheers,

    Eightace
