Yes, I know...I've been there before and that store is a very special place.
I still treasure the four Charvet RTWs I picked up on a Paris trip almost thirteen years ago...they continue to survive commercial laundering. They seem so dissimilar to the RTW that I have seen in the US in cut...I have never been tempted by what I have seen in American stores from Charvet.
I don't know why I resist just hopping the shuttle and going down to Geneva or Paris...must be a Sox vs. Yankees thing.
But, shirts are currently the worst thing in my wardrobe. Acres of balloony US market Borrelli, a few RTW Jermyn St. wares from H&K and H&H, and the original batch of RLPL English shirts. Not bad, but not great.
I wish that I had started with good fitting shirts, and branched out from there.
