Mind you there aren't that many places around here that cater for over a certain size or very tall ppl.

Saw loadsof clothes shops in Melbourne last year and hubby was quite happy as they had surf shops and he does like his animal, rip curl, and quicksilver stuff.

I'll miss Next but hell the rellies back here can send out stuff for birthdays and xmas if necessary

I just wouldn't like to get there i wish i had done a big shop before i had left the UK.
you can get nice stuff here the shops i tend to shop in here are sportsgirl, portmans jeans west you can type them into your search they should come up with websites, saying that i do miss the clothes in the uk i dont think the quality is as good here but you wont struggle finding nice stuff it just wont last as long.

Had it on, got it on ... in the words of Marc Bolan, I 'Got It On!'.

I'm even tempted to watch Formula 1 qualifiying even though I know the result, that's how smashed I am

9 months? Ah, 'tis nothing, it's worth the wait, believe me

Good Luck,
Matt

(edit) had a mate from Rotherham, spent some time there walking and climbing, enjoyed myself immensely, great people.

Mate, I'm, fussy about work shirts (most of the time I'm scruffy as, when it is smart I go the whole hog and do it right)and in my opinon, you have to spend $70 plus to get even a decent shirt that gets you across the line.

I was having a look in Myer the other day (recent threads fresh in mind), first time looking at clothes in 2 years the other day and King of std was Van Huesen 50 odd bucks let down by crap cut in the collar but saved by a more expensive European cut at $65

There was a another make escapes me now for about $70 let down by the cutaway collar being the wrong cut, and the decent stuff with a truly cutaway collar yet not too big is $100 plus.

I used to really struggle with the shopping here but after 18 months I'm slowly getting used to it and enjoying it again more!

Heres a site I put together a while back which will help you find the UK shops which deliver to Aus.
