Default Cost comparison - please !

Ok.........simple cost comparison requested.

I bought a pair of school trousers for my son (aged 10) in M&S yesterday and they cost £8.....good quality even though he will knacker the knees out. These were long trousers not shorts.

So......they should cost what in Oz?....using simple logic say £8 x 2.3 = $18
but factor in lower cost of living I am hoping that they cost less than $18 in Oz.

So.............do I hear $10 from anyone ?. Reason I ask is I have 3 boys who all get through trousers like they get through footballs...........lost or punctured in such a way as to be useless.

cheers

Here is a school uniform price list from a WA school.

http://www.ssp.wa.edu.au/uniform_pricelist.htm

Cheaper options are available at some shops.

Don't worry about the knees, don't they wear shorts here ?

I bought my son some school trousers from 'best and less', they were $15 reduced, in comparison to the $30 asked by the school for the same item... He kicks the hell out of them....

Problem is, it's soooooooooo 'uncool' to where trousers, (according to the boys) regardless of the weather, all the boys wear shorts, literally have to force my son to wear trousers!!! Much protesting on the way to school...
