Winter is coming up again and now despite me managing last year without any dramas whatsoever with just my (slightly ill-fitting 2nd hand) dririder airmesh jacket, I do fancy getting myself some proper cowhide for improved warmth and protection. ..I'm about to go back to the UK for a brief holiday where my family are eagerly waiting to buy me some kind of birthday present... Perhaps I can leverage their generosity and get something unusualy useful this year? Anyone know whether leather-goods might be cheaper/better/more variety in UK? Or would a UK jacket somehow be unsuited to Brisbane conditions (i.e. only usable for 4 weeks of the year before it gets too hot to wear)? Gotta be some expat poms in here who can testify to the relative pricing and usability of UK stuff! Any thoughts?
