Liam,

Strands are Captoes the perforations on the toe are not wing tips.

ForwWingtips, there are two main varities, Short Wings (like AE McAllisters) and Long Wings (like AE Macneils)

BTW, I think the Strands are a big imporvement over the Clarks. Clarks DB's have their place, mostly with very casual looks, jeans and some chinos, IMHO.

Spending a month in Paris. Any recommendations on what to see outside of the typical?
Living in the 4th for now. All restaurants seem to be horribly overpriced. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated.

Go to Fontainebleau it is nice small french city near to Paris. You can visit Fontainebleau castle there.
About restaurants try to find some of them in Latin Quarter there is a lot of small, nice and quite cheap restaurants.

Was looking for the details of a great bistro I found last time I was there. They've become a real rarity in the centre. Anyway, I failed to do so but stumbled across this which might be of interest:

Thank you, the Latin quarter did seem more reasonable. Thanks for all the suggestions!

Highly recommend the gardens at the Rodin Museum to chill out. You have to pay 1 euro for entrance, but then again you're surrounded by masterworks in one of Paris' most serene parks. Not nearly as crowded as Luxembourg, which - as you know - is also quite lovely.

She's right, I recently read a two-volume biography of Rodin, and Rose was the wife, Camille the mistress.

The prix fixe dinner at Au Boeuf Couronne (http://travel.nytimes.com/travel/guides/europe/france/paris/62088/au-boeuf-couronne/restaurant-detail.html) is a steal and a grand affair. 

Le Verre Siffleur is also a nice affordable bistro for lunch (http://www.lefooding.com/restaurant/restaurant-le-verre-siffleur-paris.html). 

 

When the weather is nice, I am a fan of chilling in the Tuileries Garden. The Musee Orangerie and Musee Marmottan-Monet are also less known gems if you are into art.

With temperatures reaching near 90F/32C here in NYC today, suits are not an option, so here's upr_crust, unplugged, as it were.

Everything is BB, BTW

They're BB Milano khakis, and yes, they are slimmer-cut. I bought them for a trip I took to the UK last May, and bought them at the last moment, in a rush, but they've proven to be OK - so long as I don't overeat satisfied.gif.
