Is it one shoe squeaking or both? It's common for only one shoes to squeak.
Is it the shoes squeaking or the shoe and a particular floor surface?
Any leather on leather can squeak, more so if it's a bit dry. Try to narrow down where the squeak is coming from and give it a drink of conditioner.
Could evn be the stitching. Try conditioner around stitching.
The hardest squeak is when the inner layers of the bottom of the shoes are rubbing/squeaking inside.
Can you make it squeak by hand? And get a fix on what it is.
*its not really cool cats who wear no socks. It's only blahman and __PG__ who go sock less. They often meet after work and snag a footpath table just down from Amercian Tailors on Burke and seductively flash their ankles to passing women. They say they very often pick up based on the irrestible appeal of skinny hairy men's ankles. You could join them, you'll recognize them, they will be the blokes with smelly shoes and drinking imported beer from bottles with a lemon in the top and constantly looking in the shop window to adjust their pocket hankies.

Thanks for your help!

So far, the talcum powder didn't work.

I will need to sit down tomorrow night muck around for a bit and see if i can get the shoe to squeak by hand...

^^ Thanks PBob. Someone else said the shoulders looked a little too big, so now I'm wondering about that! Gad, buying expensive OTR shit is such a headfuck.

They might be a fraction big but not obviously so. Unless you're very lucky in your build you'd be hard pressed to get much better fit than this OTR I would have thought.

It looks good.

I don't like the strong shoulders of the RLBL Anthony, and the closed quarters. But at that price, it is a good purchase if you like the style. The quality is certainly there.

What a difference winning the toss makes. Wonder how things would have been if we'd lost the last three.

Meanwhile, I can't make my mind up about these.

I think that fit looks great! Perfect through the waist for someone of your height (just enough suppression in my opinion).

What size is that by the way?

The (right) sleeve pitch looks out. Need more pictures to say more. Hard to say on the shoulder width, they look extended but not badly from what I can tell.

Edit:

I'd lose a touch of waist supression (pending pitcures without an arm up).

Brogues in/of Claremont in Perth are stocking Allen Edmonds if anyone is interested. Small and ugly stock but it's decent if you want to find your size/last to buy online. Did not check pricing.
