    I'm Australian and while I did reside in the UK for 6 years I'm back in Australia now, I meant foreigner more as in we use a different currency.

    I'm quite happy to be part of the commonwealth [emoji38]

    This is a totally necessary and insightful comment.

    Your second clause expresses a hope, but it is far from a certainty.

    It has just occurred to me that if things continue in this howler-monkeys-trapped-in-a-burning-building vein, my Good Wear could cost me an arm-and-a-leg.:mad: Personally, I'm sick of this endless palaver. As one of my friends said during the previous democratic farce, I prefer my politics to be a dull roar in the background. Not this roaring hurricane that is ripping through the country (that's my last word on this, I promise).

    Extremely emotive around these parts, & I daren't log on to the dreaded Facebook that currently resembles an amateur House of Commons. Thinking that one of my pending jacket purchases from the USA could be costing me an arm & a leg too...

    This is the most reasonable, best approach. We're sitting this out waiting for the dust to settle before generating any new prices, which will take a few weeks, no doubt, at the least.

    I bought some trousers from the UK and didn't really see that much of a difference on the price change. The banks or paypal make a currency conversion that benefits them.

    What I will do is maybe change the money I need when visiting Edinburgh and Aero during August

    We'll see. Scotland is now looking for independence (all of Scotland vote to stay!) and Northern Ireland is also seeking a union with Ireland. There is even a petition for London became a State-City and exit England!! I'm still waiting for the UK to crumble because of misinformation.
    Only England (exclude the big cities were stay won) and Wales voted for brexit even without knowing what it was! They were thinking it was a referendum to stop imigration, not to exit the EU! Now they lost their freedom of movement inside the EU. Also Cornwall didn't vote and doesn't want to leave the EU.

    Those who are interested in any Eastman (ELC & ELMC) products, we're evaluating and watching the events unfold right now before adjusting prices, assuming that proves necessary. Market analysts really have a limited opinion of any value right now, which is largely just that we should expect wild volatility before stabilization is reached, and stabilization of any measure is likely not before a few weeks, and that may not be the end in the nearer long term.

    We have instituted a special discount for the moment to help keep sales and inventory moving, which applies only to items in stock, the details of which can be found on our website under ANNOUNCEMENTS, or on our affiliate page here on TFL.

    I bought some Harris tweed trousers from Aero last week, I should have bloody waited until after the jolly referendum ;)

    Seriously though, I'm a man after my old Dad who always said that there were two things which were banned from discussion in his officers' mess, one was religion, the other politics.

    Well look at what happened when people looked rationally at the two choices for their EU vote.

    I think I'll go stroke an Aero jacket before it becomes a foreign EU import into London.

    I'm afraid I have to agree with you that people voted in ignorance, though the Leave campaign played on immigration. The Remain vote in northern Ireland does not necessarily mean that they want union with the Republic of Ireland. Cornwall did vote.

    ...yes...when the dust settles, our societal structure will be the thin shallow layer just above the dust. The 'wait and see' attitude of Vote Leave, imagine that Great Britain's horsehide is only getting better with time. It doesn't! When you shred a horsehide jacket apart, all that's left is not hope.

    It's ...a screwed up vestige of what was once united: now divided, and going through many more multiplications of long internal and unthought of complicated divisions; on a macro-structural level, us from the EU; us from the financial centres of the world, which will see large corporations like HSBC & Citibank move out of the UK into the EU; us from the single European airspace, which will see our airports nosedive in use by transit travellers; our financial banking centres which will risk seeing haemorrhaging capital flight on a slow scale; dividing of generations of people; dividing families, piting parent against child with conflicting votes and intolerance for each other's Vote Leave or Remain politics.

    SOS! We need a Scottish seamstress to put us back together again.

    Funny thing in the vote statistics, the older people vote to leave. They (most of them) will not live this and now force the young on something they didn't wanted.
    Also the Leave party wiped their website of their promises. hmmm... will Boris be the next prime-minister?

    England just lost to joke team Iceland and now kicked out of the prestigious Euro 2016 Championship. The pain only gets worse.
