You may not have the body of Hugh Jackman after all those mince pies but if you’re looking for a a piece to invest in you could do worse than the Australian cowboy classics on offer at RM Williams.
The RM Williams brand has been around for 75 years and brings with it a sense of gritty heritage. They also have a lovely site, including ‘Australia’ themed galleries featuring items worn in the movie.
The fabulous boots (around £189) are made to last a lifetime and even if they don’t they offer a full repairs service so you can genuinely call them an investment. To add to your Aussie rover swagger, a pair of moleskin jeans [heavy duty 'sueded' cotton] will keep you warm in the long run up to springtime. They retail at around £100.
The London store is at 102 New Bond Street, London W1S 1SS tel 0207 629 6222 or Google RM Williams to find UK outdoor clothing suppliers who stock the range.
