Re Guyot being made by Gomez, to what are you referring? AFAIK they are just buddies, I've never heard of Gomez making for Guyot.

I mean Marc Gayot's personal bespoke shoes that he has lying around in the store. There is a brown Austrian side laced that has fantastic proportions. There is a brown captoe lace up that has developed a great patina. I also never realized that Marc Gayot made his own lasts and has made shoe trees for his own personal use. Kinda neat.

I'll be visiting Paris in August, and I'd like to look into getting some shirts made. I've seen recommendations in this thread for Courtot, Lucca, and Mary Frittolini. I reached out to Courtot, but they are closed for most of the month (which reminded me that Paris nearly shuts down in August). Should I assume the same for Lucca and Frittolini? I can't find an email for Lucca to ask—does anyone have one?

 

I was going to get at least two shirts, so maybe I should just cut the number of shirts in half and order from Charvet—at least they should be open. How long does the bespoke process take there? For some reason, their page won't load, so I can't find any contact information for them, either.

I'm afraid you won't find anyone in Paris at that period of time, save for Charvet but you don't really want to have your shirts made there. I mean, they're not worth the money they ask for them. 

 

Lucca does not have an email account and Charvet works better over the phone as well. 

 

Forget Frittolini, she works really well but she needs 6 months to do a shirt.

I know Charvet's not worth the money, but whoever I end up working with (and it doesn't seem like I have much choice), I won't place large order, and I won't make a habit of working with them. Since I'm from the U.S., it's more of a wearable souvenir.

Does Charvet have a minimum, though? Probably won't order if you have to get 5-6.

No minimum at Charvet.

 

You might want to call in advance in order to have as many fittings as possible within your visit.

Thanks for all the help! I will call, but when I try to pull up the website, it only loads a blank page... is there somewhere else I can access the number?

Yup, tried that as well. Weird, as they're typically pretty responsive.

Do any of the French tailors come to the U.S.? (For ~2.5k or less) Been wanting to try someone in the French style (as opposed to the Italian super soft spalla camicia).

You may count yourself lucky if they can make you underpants for that. And you'll have to come to Paris.

The Karl Lagerfeld wears Cifonelli...or so it was said in this thread some time ago.

Your thoughts on this coat?

Kuro, well, that's what I remember reading. Likely I'm mistaken and if I am, do let me know who dresses KL these days. I don't really care for his look but it serves to separate him from all others, which is likely the high point of his choices. He's never dull, to say the least.
