Socks: I have always liked the Holeproof Heroes as a summer weight wool sock. Pacific Brands is at least still an Aussie company and the wool at least comes from Australian sheep. I have tried all my life to buy Australian products and am probably the last man standing to wear clothing and footwear either made in Australia (that is history, unfortunately) or at least made by an Australian company &/or with Australian materials. These socks have dropped off all the big local retailers’ lists, so I was pleasantly surprised to be able to buy them online from Harris Scarfe for approx $5 a pair!
PS: They are still available there, but they have changed their name to Bonds – Jan 2018. Still a great summer sock
