Alternative would be C&J Audleys from PLAL at $440 delivered. Very hard to beat for a classic cap toe, IMHO
Much of the Marais has been overrun with boutiques and bars since I lived there in the 80s, but if you head over to the old section by the river known as the Village St. Paul you can find some really great spots and an astonishing village-like vibe for the heart of the city. Be sure to check out the Ducrocq Georges cafe near the corner of rue Charles V and rue du Petit Music -- it's the real deal in terms of a genuine French cafe...the kind that is harder and harder to...
The most common of all - pants that are at least 3" too long...usually seen pooling around black, rubber soled shoes
I've got 5 or 6 pairs of C&Js and just use the cedar tress from Nordstrom rack at $10/pop. Seem to work absolutely fine.
You may find this thread helpful: http://www.styleforum.net/showthread.php?p=2414285 FWIW, I have wide feet as well and just got a pair of Audleys from PLAL. Sized down only 1/2 instead of the usual whole size and, even though I will have to stretch the width on the left one a bit, the fit is great -- actually makes my feet look sleek! Good luck!
I have a 100% cashmere overcoat and it has held up absolutely fine. Even if you wear it a lot, it is still a seasonal piece as opposed to a year-round staple. Mine is probably 8 years old and you can't tell that it has a lot of miles on it. Beyond that, the big advantage of a cashmere coat is the warmth and relatively light weight ratio compared to a full wool rig.
Mine's 1962 MKII and, strangely enough for a British car of any age, it's stunningly reliable....
RE: Fit. The posts I found before buying that the fit was "slim" in the body but the arm length was good - not too short. Fabric seemed to get a solid thumbs up all around, as Moo noted above. We'll see when they arrive, but the free shipping and return minimizes the risk factor. Price-wise, it's hard to beat the Filson tote I got from them for $39 two weeks back, but at -$60 I threw down for a pair.
Martin + Osa is offering 50% off all sweaters through this Wednesday 11/25 -- that brings the cashmere v-necks down to $59/a pop with free shipping/ free return shipping over $100. I searched the Forum before I pulled the trigger and cheapest they have been listed in the past was $55, but considered a great deal at $79. Not seen if you go to the site and click on sales so here's the link: http://www.martinandosa.com/web/brow...1&ed_mid=43138
Sorry I wasn't clear above - I have a couple of their cashmere ties and thickness is not an issue -- very nice stuff and a killer deal on sale. By "Thin" I meant width... they are skinner than what I usually wear...
