You can find Long Chim in the basement of the new COMO Hotel at the newly renovated Treasury Building in Perth's CBD. The Treasury building has had an amazing transformation and itself is worth a visit. The Scandinavian inspired luxury hotel with its minimalist design feel has various bars and cafes running through public level of the building.
STATUS ANXIETY.... If you haven't already heard of these guys.... You will soon. I've seen them popping up in shops throughout Perth. And may I add... This isn't a bad thing. These guys make some really good fashion accessories, for guys and girls.
We love weddings. We love the emergence of new Perth business's catering for those dapper folk out there. This blog post combines these two in a unique groom and groomsmen experience I have yet to come across.... Till now that is.
Introducing Groomed Men.
Your wedding day is filled with smiles, handshakes, photos, lifelong memories and most probably a sore head, and unless your Prince William or Barrack Obama it will be the most photographed day of your life. Your bride knows this and will be looking her best. What about you?
For those gents looking for more of a pampered and organised preparation to the traditional shower, shave and beers on the porch, a new exciting business is amongst us.
Groomed Men provides a total groom and groomsmen wedding experience. They style hair (including tidy ups), steam shirts, polish shoes, prepare and tie bow ties and neck ties (hopefully a Squire Lad original) and style pocket square use. They will even dress and style paige boys and blow-dry and style any ladies on the day that need styling, including the mother of the Groom.
Maria Caruso, the founder and creative mind behind Groomed Men is an amazing, well renowned Perth hair stylist, and her venture into a unique grooms experience is bound to be successful.
Maria told Squire Lad "Groomed Men generally makes sure everything is running smoothly and on time, and we are there to make sure the Groom and his Groomsmen are prepared and looking amazing for their special day".
Groomed Men has teamed up with the dapper team at Perth's Terrace Men clothing store. They can organise an appointment for everyone to be fitted out and receive 10% discount.
Short Order Burger Co in Fremantle is The Mantle's newest pop-up resident (they're currently only open Thursday to Saturday). Their squishy brioche buns, hand-made patties and unique menu items (doughnut burger anyone?) has earned the friendly team almost instant cult status amongst Perth's foodie fraternity.
Now I know why Short Order burgers are highly raved upon many and I can definitely say that it was the best burger I ever had. If you’ve got the love for burgers, head down to The Mantle on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Squire Lad is really excited to announce we have locked in our first pop up shop... For one day only... At the Light Up Leederville Carnival
Thanks to the major sponsor City of Vincent, the fourth annual Light Up Leederville Carnival presented by Alcohol. Think Again is back this December 6th.

We will be providing more information as to where we are located on the day.... so keep an eye out on our blog and Instagram for more details.
Cant wait to see you there!
Personally the Spring Racing Carnival, in particular the Melbourne Cup Carnival is one of my favourite times of the year. Traditionally it was a day for the blokes to get on the punt and the girls to express themselves fashion wise. This hasn't changed too much, but the gents are more and more looking to experiment with certain looks.
Uncrate ..... For those of you who haven't come into contact with this beast... Is amazing.
The digital magazine promotes itself as being "for guys who like to buy stuff". You need to check this out!
This men-only blog, my friends, is a bundle of male joy. Uncrate covers every aspect occupying the hipster guy’s mind: gear, rides, entertainment, style, culture, body, fashion, living and the outrageous products out there on sale. Uncrate is amazing to look at, with large hi-res images in practically every post. You could spend hours browsing through the products, which range from a male grooming kit to a handheld flamethrower.
