I've only been back a couple of days. I haven't fully unpacked yet and haven't settled on what I want to use.

Ultimately I think it would be a photo of me.

I have visited Arnys on just about every trip to Paris for 30 years. The combination of colors and fabrics on their Forestier jackets and vest was always inspiring. Unfortunately, the boxy cut really didn't suit my build or the combinations so OTT that I wouldn't get much wear from them so I never purchased one. But just looking at them and trying them on was enjoyment enough. I have owned some of their sport coats and neckwear. I no longer have my all-time favorite Arnys tie. It was a deep green with 2.5" wide rep stripes in the perfect shades of spring blue, tan and purple.

Wilkes Bashford in San Francisco carried a lot of versions of their Forestier jackets for many years. And, each year at the warehouse sale most of them would be on major markdown. They were just too different for US or Bay Area tastes anyway.

Arnys will be missed because it had such a distinct look and personality. But, if you don't sell enough, you can't avoid the reality of retail can you?

And that perspective adds a lot to this forum.

So is the new bespoke shop a seperate operation that will continue to be managed by the original family?

I understood that the deal will be (for how long ?) to join the small structure bespoke Arnys (10 collaborators) to the Berluti team (suites and apparels arts)...

Arnys was a curious beast, I find their offerings akin to Paul Smith's designs, if the man only had a firm touch on tailoring instead of streetwear. I wager some pieces will become very collectable.

But the accessories (primarily pocket squares and ties) are were unique. I don't know where else one can find a print like this:



Yes, for some this is hideous. But I'm glad I bought the tie when I could.

I like the tie.  I have an unlined 7-fold from Arnys that is one of my favorites for its construction as well as unique pattern.

I wonder how the street was so clear to get this shot. The street is usually filled with parked cars. I know because I tried to get the same shot before Arnys closed.
