    i find hoodies are always made too large and fit overly baggy or they're good fitting but are way too thin to wear past may.

    Oh and my friend from ippy says he needs to move back to the sunny coast cause his life expectancy will increase by like 30 yrs haha.

    they sound really expensive hearing what you guys say about them though lol.
    How much do they usually cost?

    I'm trying to save up so i can get one of zac's V&V jackets too :-(

    ^ go to havenshop.ca right now, they have a free shipping promotion on, and remember all prices are in canadian dollars. there are a few heavyweights left, i'd urge you to snap one up because they won't last.

    ~125 CAD. you'll pay 200+ AUD retail in sydney.

    haha really don't have much money to spend right now since i spent over $400 AUD over the coarse of 4 days early this week.
    can't really justify buying a hoodie at all since i bought these two on sale from karmaloop using some of that $400. They should be arriving early next week, hope they're warm :-D

    damn, i just pm'ed you a coupon too....

    this weather certainly inspires that kind of purchase, i just bought a lee gold riders dry selvage jacket from cultizm myself. that's why i'm tapped out right now :-(

    a reigning champ would eat both of those for breakfast, btw

    ^ mine is conmar too, don't worry about it. if you're worried about authenticity, i got mine direct from their canadian distributor, so that must be how it goes. ykk isn't the only quality manufacturer out there ;-)

    shame file time- it's my dirty dirty (dirty!) secret that two of my favorite hoodies are country road and sportscraft :oops: i won't apologise for that though, because there are few labels on the australian retail scene that match the kind of quality that went into these two hoodies, and they were the closest i could find to what i was looking for- heavy cotton fabric, quality hardware and no big flashy labels. they're not rc, but they do the trick...

    i feel like i need a shower now :oops:

    hate their clothes though;-)

    Edit: what i originally came to this thread again for was to bitch and moan about how i cant find bonds hoodies anywhere!!!! i hit up target, kmart, myer, djs, and i found one grey hoodie (thats the colour i was after) but in a size 14... so too small. goddamn

    Re-Edit: So apparently i walked straight past them at DJs. BAH

    Pity djs will charge an arm, leg and first-born son for them :-?

    I just copped a couple at Kmart for 25 dollars each. try the menswear dept, it sounds like you're angling for the women's range, because the men's range is in S,M,L etc, not number values. we used to have a bonds outlet a block from my work too, but that got washed away in the floods a few years back. i'm not sure how keen they are to reopen with all the negative press they've copped recently either :(

    menswear had only bright green and blue left... womenswear had heaps of grey but that some some stupid lime trim... then to the kiddies section where i found the 14;)

    yeh apparently they are like 50 bucks at DJs. i think i will just give up and go somewhere like cotten on. you win bonds.

    aa is ok, but i wouldn't describe it as cheap, because it's fairly pricey relative to other basics brands. i do like a lot of the stuff they do but $30+ for a glorified bonds shirt is a bit much. i'm a bit over their seedy-arse, dirty-old-man marketing angle too.

    i like that blue, but anyhow. just keep an eye out, i've seen the black ones everywhere, including at coles supermarket. mostly they stop at about 16, but i think these look good sized down, i'm wearing the small size atm, even though i could've quite comfortably taken an L

    Do you guys not have TSL in the northern states? We go there because Kmart etc. suck at having any sort of range/colour.

    They're about 40 bucks iirc
