yer, but how much is that beer? i paid 25 dollars for two fairly standard variety pints last week.
FTFAJ and I thought paying $18 for 2 Corona's at a bar in Canberra was grim.
Sapporos last night were $9.50 a bottle - then I pass a bottle-o in the morning that has a sign outside saying Sapporo six-pack $16.00
Japanese beer is so fucking overrated (and overpriced).
A young buddy of mine who lives in NYC swears by his hip flask. Go to a trendy bar, order something cheap and sit on it while sneaking cheeky nips from the flask to keep your buzz going.
What about $15 for a bloody ABC shot

Someone doesn't know how to party
Absinthe, Bacardi, Chartreuse ...
As I understand it (although I could be wrong), it's not the hat itself that shrinks, but the leather band inside the hat. I've had two Akubras and both have shrunk a bit - but then again, both of them were stockman's hats and I wore both of them hiking/camping/out in the bush so I did sweat quite a lot. If you just wear them around the city and don't sweat as much, the chance of shrinkage might be smaller.
Also, as noted, it is possible to stretch the sweatband out a bit again if it gets too tight.
Buying Coronas is always grim.
Sapporos are nice, except in Australia it's Canadian beer you're buying.
Thanks Jason / Geoff for the advice

Gladstone 202 black calf -- EG TD

On EG, the 202 isn't overly narrow IME... But then again its the most conservative of EG's lasts.
Also I suppose I'm out of the RTW loop but do people acutally import (new from an offical stockist) that much from brands that have distribution in australia**?
**That are likely to take this kind of action.
Does anyone have any comments re: diffrent acorn fabrics?
Thanks for sharing. They do look nice at that price point. Carmina is more expensive but I wonder how they compare as both are Spanish. Spain got some of the nicest leather
