    We don’t shop at the exclusive expensive designer stores.

    Reminds me of a story my dad once told me when he first came to NZ in the late 1940’s, four men used to rotate a shared suit. I guess you had to have a similar build and height to your friends.

      ‘eres one,

      knot useful
      knot repair
      knot bind
      knot loose

      knot strong
      knot carry
      knot tighten
      knot slip
