    Fairly good summation except the coffee has improved in leaps and bounds over the last few years and you forgot to mention that the on-road bike lanes are even better than the bike paths. Definitely a good city to be a cyclist in!

    I mainly love it for the outdoors opportunities and having so much bush around and of course for me the close proximity to the snowy mountains and the exceptional fly fishing that goes with it. And the whole family, friends, fiance etc too of course are all here.

    Absolutely correct re Herrings, Adrian stocks what is on his site and postage is usually about 12-15 days

    Sadly Brisbane is warm enough to wear summer trousers all winter tho. I was wearing fresco (!) a few days ago.

    Anyone hear much about this new Aussie company Owen & James I've been seeing pop up on Tumblr lately? I know one of the members here has been re-blogging a bit of there stuff. There is not much on there site but it looks pretty good anyway. Shirts made in the USA is a nice change.

    Is it someone here flying under the radar?

    just discovered Lonsdale Street Roasters has a very Melbourne aesthetic in the wastelands of Civic, good coffee.

    Canberra if you ask me is all about the natural environment, most of the built environment in this town is shit. And its still -2c and the dog is firmly welded to the heater. FUBAR

    Ha Ha - should have put private browser on for that! Ill have some explaining to do.

    The Owen and James shirts do look good though- good to see more people giving menswear a go. Ive just ordered a couple of MT shirts based around a really well fitting shirt i have so ill have to wait and see how they go before i consider any more. I even tried on some of MJ Bales shirts on (they were 5 for 250) but they just didnt fit perfectly so i let them go.

    I'll be in Canberra over the weekend of the 14th/15th of July - if anyone wants to catch up, let me know :)

    Would be nice to put names to faces.

    Funny I just went there yesterday for the first time to see what the hype was about. Wasn't that impressed to be honest. I reckon they are too busy and pumping them out too quick.

    Lots of hipsters too and fixies (FXH would hate it).

    I agree. It wasn't that great on the one occasion that I went, and yes, it was hipster central. But without entrepreneurial hipsters, we'd probably be drinking far more inferior coffee, so I don't mind them as much anymore.

    Must have been too early in the day for hipsters, place was full of APS types. Coffee was ok
