Sweater-ing It Up.
Winter is coming.



Just looking at a few Ralph Laurens but I hear the quality control and durability on them ain't that flash. Can someone confirm or deny?

Where can I get a good sweater in Australia, on the cheap(ish)?

Or even better, do any sites ship to Australia that do good sweaters?

The reason they aren't worn as much these days is they are tough to maintain. Even the best brands are fragile compared to other fabrics and with every wash they get weaker and with every wear they stretch.

Tommy Hilfiger does good ones, but my advice is wear them sparingly.

For shit like that may as well check out http://www.fullystoked.com/ and http://www.ascolour.com.au/

cheaper and generally more awse. Also check these sites for killer tshirts. Staple T has an awesome cut for those that attend the gym once every 3 months.

Industrie looks the goods.

I'm guessing RL ain't any good, seeing as I haven't had any support on that front.

How good are Tommy Hilfiger's out of 10, Fledz?

Man I don't know what rating to give it, but well worth the money with a sale on (there's always a sale in Myer/DJs).
I've got this one and in fact, this almost looks exactly like me wearing it

An avatar on a fairly niche lifestyle website wasn't a decision I put a lot of stock in.

I can understand people expecting to be 20,000+ posters maybe putting a bit more thought into it - but the empty bottle near my computer was good enough for me.

I went looking for a new cardy a couple of weeks ago ... and 90% of them had some gay ass pseudo-vulva collar on it.

This shit




It always amazes me that when you go to shop for clothes and want something that seems relatively simple and basic, you can not, for the lifeof you , find it (or if you do find it, they want $100 more than you wanted to pay)

Agree with both points there. I hate them because they make you feel stonkingly gay - like really badly gay

And I can never find anything at Westfield Carindale!!! Never. The only time I've found something I was looking for was once in the Universal store and once in Myer.

Might go to the new Wintergarden

If the empty bottle near your computer was a $100+ bottle of plonk, well....play on player I suppose.

Wait, exam block starts thursday. Does the sale go until thursday? Just looked on their website, and not popping up.
