Bought a very heavy fur lined leather jacket there, with all the trimmings and meant for severe winter weather. Just the thing for sailing in the tropics!

It was a terrific stylish jacket, but I never wore it even once - It just stayed in the cupboard gathering mould, until sold on to a very surprised Aussie wharfie in Port Lincoln.
