    I'm on Little Collins so missing all the action by one block. Plus I'm generally only in the office in town 3 days a week at most, and in suits usually only 2 of those.

    Just updated this listing in the B&S forum. Includes a price drop and a joke.

    Does that translate to AUD593 or am I doing the wrong conversion?

    Yep, that sounds about right as you typically add 20-25% when converting, depending on the rates at the time.

    Shoes in Japan can be surprisingly expensive. Whilst there are some good deals to be had, particularly at the end-of-year sales, on Japanese-made and (sometimes) Italian-made shoes, most other shoes cost much more than you will pay in other places. US-made shoes such as Alden are particularly expensive, for some reason.

    From Oz? I've had very little success with DHL, they lost delayed two time critical packages and since then I stopped using them. Fedex has been my staple here in Sydney and when I was living in the US, I've received about 10ish packages and sent about 4 all of which have arrived on time.

    I have always had great results at All the Kings Men in North Melbourne (might be too far from CBD for you). They have got very popular recently so the wait can be a little long but I keep going back. Actually due a trim soon now you mention it...

    By the way, why are you thinking of changing?
