Carmina for shoes, especially cordovan. Oh, and I hear El Bulli has decent food.

Make sure you go to the Miro museum. I love how they trace the progression of his work from a mastery of classical techniques to a gradual abstraction and simplification.

there is no Carmina in barcelona. hop a flight to Mallorca (Palma) for that. Worth the side trip.

Bel y Cie is nice, they do bespoke jackets, they told me they could do it in under a week (including fittings). They also have nice shirtings, and they have Edward Green shoes and Great Longhi belts. Expensive place though (approx 300 euros per shirt!). They have nice incotex styled pants as well that they do custom.

Hmmm, I can't access Carmina's website at work but Google maps says they have a shop at Rambla Catalunya 24
08007 Barcelona, Spain close to the University of Barcelona.

I was there a few weeks ago and whilst there wasn't any good clothes stores there was a great restaurant called Les Caracoles. The address is Escudellers 14.
