I'm off to Sydney for a few days, does anyone know somewhere I can get my jacket pressed by hand?

Re Oxfords: I ended up making a trip to McClouds and tried a pair of Loakes in a wider fit that seemed to fit pretty nicely. But what is the consensus on their quality? I tried the Aldwych I believe.
Ended up getting the shoes, they look good an feel good. One thing I will say is when they broke in a little they because very squeaky. I wish I could upload a video because it's almost comical how much they squeak, like an old door.

Might be a novice question, but I was wondering if this is just something that comes with these types of shoes, or if it's apart of the break in process?

They shouldn’t squeak. Usually the result of moisture or air and friction. Not sure how you solve this. I dare say there will be an abundance of advice online.
Haven’t had that issue since i was a school boy.

Has anyone visited Mawson Ossa in Sydney?

They’ve been on my radar for a while, and their aesthetic reminds me a little of Saman Amel in Stockholm: not too business or too #menswear.

I was planning to go in before Covid, but have only been back to Sydney once since and didn’t have time.

I have no real sense of where they make or pricing, and there’s precious little info on their website or online.

Nice stuff. Grant is a great guy to chat to, easygoing and knowledgeable.

What’s the price range for a Mawson Ossa two piece, if I may ask?
