    Cost of living very high, comparing it Nth America I'd say Toronto/SF/NYC/Vancouver type. Sydney is one of the most expensive places to live in the World, Melbs isn't far behind.
    I am from Sydney but I would say Melbs is probably a better option for students.
    To compare a few things based on my last visit home to Syd:
    Aus Milk - $4.50 liter
    US Milk - $3.00 gallon (3.78l = 1gallon)
    Aus Bread - $4.00
    US Bread - $1.99

    Petrol is also about twice the price if not more.
    Rent in Syd - my brother pays $550/week for a pretty small 2 bedroom. My other brother bought a house for $560k that needed a ton of work and is about 40 mins from the CBD.

    Great, thanks. Really enjoyed working with the maker. I wear the pants a lot. The weather's been too warm for the jacket, although that's changing soon.

    What would be the point/purpose/goal/whatever of "rubber coated calfskin" on a pair of boots?


    [​IMG]

    Would it just kind of wear off and fade? Kind of like waxed denim or something? I was looking at those because I thought they were patent leather at first glance but now I'm just curious as to why this would be a thing.

    I dunno about those, but my wife has a pair of rubber coated guidi boots. The "rubber" is more like a waxed coating and it looks pretty cool as it fades off
