IIRC just off blvd saint germain on rue de l'ecole de medecin there's 'patisserie viennoise', ignore the two ogresses that work there, the gingerbread is the best i've ever had. Dense enough to stop a bullet. The 'cornes' (horns) with poppyseed (pavot) or walnut filling are also amazing. But have the gingerbread.
I'll look into those options, thanks. I hadn't really done any research, decided I wanted a perfecto and that margiela was one of the first I saw. Don't want/need super thick leather as I'm in Sydney and it's too hot most of the time (also, don't own a bike lol)
