Billabong doesn't walk alone...
Yeah, I read that story with great interest, and not just because of the Billabong connection - John Pollaers is in the family tree.
Stu, its a proper apples vs apples comparison. Wasn't so long ago PBG bought the bulk of Globe's auxillary brands for ?60? mil . Mainly they are in the no frills socks n jocks, work wear etc field... but also obviously struggling.
tough times all round.
Yep, times're tough alright.
And getting tougher.

But his point about, ah, â€œdis-intermediatedâ€ was interesting. I hadn't caught up with the fact that Big W de-ranged Bonds last year in favour of its house brand.
Jeebus, times really are tough right now. Hope Launa has imagination.
yep, bonds got completely taken out of the loop.
