Haha .. Totally enjoyed reading this. I lived in Lebanon, OR for some time and can picture the 'trendy' Portland and its 'Lumbersexual' scene. I'm a 6ft woman, and I cringe buying my jeans simply because I always seem to end up with that dorky ankle freezer result. Apparently, being tall doesn't weigh into ladies sizing charts back here in Australia (Insert right here the feelings of missing the USA pretty much for the diverse sizing). 

Here in Australia we do the 'Aussie Bogan/ACDC Sexual'
Flannel shirt (yes we do love our tartan patterns) generally in whatever colour you damned well could wish to wear. Shirt is generally tucked in with the sleeves rolled all the way up to the mid bicep.  

One simply cannot be Australian if those sleeves aren't rolled all the way up there and depending on what area you dwell you are fully expected to have a packet of Winfield Blue cigarettes (ciggies) tucked under that arm roll or under the shirt on top of the shoulder.

Jeans are to be tight, be they faded, stone wash, torn, black or blue; never any other colour for fear of being mistaken as a 'Yuppy snob'.  Heaven forbid if your jeans are above your ankle! This could result in someone thinking you were a "...few Tim Tam's short of a full packet..."  The absolute worst assumption about your pants being too short in the leg would be that you were a white collar public servant /corporate aristocrat trying to "blend" in among all us other Aussie larrikin 'riff raff' 

THE ONLY AMENDMENT TO THIS TYPICAL AUSSIE IMAGE — ACDC DATE NIGHT

Making it look sexy for a night out on the town, hanging with your mates or going to a BBQ with a slab of grog where you are going to blast ACDC, Cold Chisel & John Farnham so loud that the neighbours 4 suburbs away are going to be knocking on your door asking you to 'keep it down' , whilst swearing, dancing and consuming copious amounts of alcohol.  The alterations from day wear to night/party wear is simply to put on a blue bonds singlet underneath your flanny shirt; WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT BUTTON UP THAT SHIRT and don't tuck it in.. Foot wear is always a choice of 
1. Thongs (Havaianas) 
2. Steel Caps
3. Bare Feet
