O yes, the cafe at the top of printemps maison has a great view. Grab a cafe for 1.5E and hit the patio

Recommendation from earlier post.
Not super high end, but excellent clothing:


You might wish to try these shops for well-priced semi
trad menswear. I own several pairs of their dress slacks,
the oldest of which is from the early 80s.
They are superbly made and have worn extremely well.
I haven't been to paris since 2000 , but the last time
I checked, the stores carried the same style and quality.

Arthur et Fox
159 Blvd. St Germain
75006 Paris

Arthur et Fox
44 Rue du Bac
75007 Paris

There's another branch near the Opera.
Also, as I recall, at least several years back,
they owned another store near Ave. Foch
but with a different name

Weston shoes are another good bet.

Have a great visit.

Corthay is hard to find (be patient) but small and charming. Not too far from it is Carmina - well worth it! (Blvd l'Opera). Other suggestions: Le Bon Marche (one block from Arnys) - the best Dept store in Paris. In the same general vicinity (left bank) are the Edward Green Store on Blvd Saint Germain, very nice (Lobb store across the street is small and disappointing - go to the one near the Champs Elysees). Also on the left bank are Heschung, Paraboot and CJ stores. Of course, there are two Berluti stores, one on the Blvd Saint Germain and the other near the big Lobb store. Bon voyage. DK

+1 on Arthur et Fox. Try the one on the Blvd. St Germain. After your shopping you can stop over at Brasserie Lipp for lunch.

I am going to terrorize that store

Seriously though, I always get awesome treatment at the Paris Hermes boutique and so-so treatment in NYC.

Awesome. Thanks!

Sounds like a lot of shoe shopping to look at!

I've popped by Le Bon Marche, it's probably my favorite of the department stores.

Is Edward Green worth visiting in Paris? I tend to just get my stuff MTO from Leffot.

As someone who's lived in Paris, I learned early on not to buy anything I could get stateside for half the price. The experience of interesting stores and unique items is key. There's not much you can't find in NYC, for example.

Charvet is a fantastic store, as others have noted. APC is fun, and back before it opened stateside, I used to go to the Muji store in the Marais a fair amount. I also agree that Bon Marche is the best you can do, stay away from Galeries Lafayette/Printemps - mall clothes.

I know it's cliche, but walking around the Marais can be fruitful, esp for streetwear. There's an APC around there, and some other fun streetwear stores I can't remember off the top of my head. Great editing at those places.

I saw cotton bracelets with a skull on it for 50 euros there. That place is severely overrated. Cool looking shop though.

OP: Hit up A.P.C., I bought a pair of pre-washed Jeans there that I haven't been able to find anywhere in HK. It was only 175 euros.

Of course the LV/Goyard/Charvet are must go's
