My First Aussiebums


I'm converted! Its been years in the making but finally this week I ordered online and purchased my first ever item from Aussiebum. There has been a hint of summer in the air and a scent of decaying speedoes in the bathroom so onto the site I went, selected a pair I'd seen in the flesh (or on the flesh...) earlier in the year and a few clicks later, a day or two for mailing and today it arrived. Awesome packaging, very well made and a perfect fit!! So I'm very happy. I just need to test them out in the water now, and then wear them in races to win in style!

So to celebrate the scent of summer and to move away from the politics that has been featuring here lately here are a few more Aussiebum samples. Oh, and the ones I bought are somewhere in this post; but I'm not telling which...

T, when you buy an Aussiebum, do you get the six-pack too? ;)

I think you bought the last one.

Peter: Let me have a look... hmm, it seems the six pack is complimentary. I do like the last one - more the guy though - but he didn't fit into my mailbox.

Went to Visit Australia and I thought I would buy some 'Made in' etc for some friends as gifts. I was so very, very shocked that you can only buy them on line in your country. We can buy them in department stores and shops in the U.K. Trevor, isn't this very, very, very, odd!

Anon: yes I found it quite novel when I was in London and there were shops stocking loads of Aussiebum gear... Certainly not available so readily here - but there is a store in Byron Bay that does sell it - it's the only place in Oz I know of and the section in the store is quite small. Kind of odd.
I guess it's more profit with solely online sales.
