    Ha! I think I might be the antipodean @generic_guy – in addition to my precious lucky clothing finds getting "rationalised" or disintegrating while awaiting their moment, I had a beaten-up but very playable (and beautiful-sounding!) '60s Maton parlour guitar that I liberated for $20 (so, 10 quid or less)... my wife chose to display it in the lounge room... finally! some recognition for not only my valuable precious things, but my impressive skills as a glaneur!... and then contrived to knock it onto the hard floor while vacuuming the next day, where it broke into several irreparable pieces. In her favour, she does often suggest that I change into my most faded SC47s rather than the crispy rigid jeans I've selected for whatever occasion I'm feeling the need to wear "good" jeans to (What..? these are edo-ai, I go to so much troub.. oh, all right. Just for you)

    @Broark, have to concur with @Double 0 Soul on the Sugarcane; that's a good basic belt, you can feel secure in the knowledge that you're straight fire without drawing undue attention to the fact. UES do a good one at a similar price, but the buckle is rather square and the leather is thicc – feels nearly twice as much as the SC! You could also thread the Tender the opposite way round (so the buckle is upside down), but that is challenging and deprives you of the excuse to buy another belt.

    ^ heh, weird – I never said anything about a crotch blowout... the board seems to be low-key scrambling things here and there...

    Nice Things

    As a kid, I used to dream of ordering those from the back pages of Li'l Lotta comics along with x-ray specs, Chinese finger traps and sea monkeys

    ^ Nah, those are looking really good! They'll be peaking right when others are worn to shreds

    Corlection now has this jacket, in this colour – but only up to 42 (which they describe as "XL"). Might be worth checking with them if they'll be getting more, or at least measuring up the 42 to see if it runs large. They would definitely ship to the US.

    @Duke Mantee, I used to work down the road from Sydney's largest childrens hospital, which happened to be a teaching hospital. For my job at the time, I sat in on a similar operation (hole in the heart) for an 8-y.o. girl – a real privilege. Hospital staff who do this every day display a level of easy professionalism seldom encountered in any other field – I remember the surgeon telling me that "this little heart is the happiest it's possible to be right now... taking a break for the only time in 80 or 90 years with a team of professionals at the ready". Always nerve-wracking for parents, but strictly routine right when you need it to be.

    Corlection (I don't know if it's the Sydney or Melbourne branch) has the blue version in a 40, but that's all
