Fouquet's is a trap for tourists in fact... May be you could give me some good adresses for clothes... Thanks for all. May be you will like the box and take one for you too. Do you prefer me to give you Euros or Dollars ?
I only ate at Fouquet's restaurant once, 20 years ago, when it had a Michelin star; it was excellent and reasonably priced. I know that it became a tourist trap later, but I hear that it has improved with the addition of the two star chef from the Hotel Martinez in Cannes. We may try it during our stay. I hear that a nearby new place named Flora is wonderful. I do not do much shopping in Paris; mostly looking. Although the selection is varied and wonderful, Paris is an expensive town and I usually buy my English clothing and shoes in London. I do want to go by Berluti, Albeladejo, John Lobb and Weston. I know that Bexley sells nice trees. I only have 6 pairs of cuff-links, but I want to see the box, in case I want one for myself. Either Euros or Dollars is ok. If you want to pay in Euros, we can use the exchange rate in the newspaper on the day we meet. I usually buy a Herald Tribune or USA Today every day.[/quote] When are you going to receive the box? Tell me how you find the box as soon as you receive it and take a picture with your cufflinks in the box if possible. I have never been to Albaladejo, I heard about this brand on this forum. I will go and see soon. Have you ever been to Aubercy? These shoes are much better than Weston. You have also 2 crocket&jones shop which may be not more expensive than London. I agree with you for London, this is the best city for men. I prefer euros as everybody will save : if the spot rate is for exemple 1.27 USD for 1 EURO and you go to change in an office : you will pay 1.3 UDS for 1 euro I will receive 1.25 USD for 1 euro + fees In this case if i give you 86 euros instead of 109 USD both will save money. Ok for the exchange rate in paper (rate of the day before) the day we will meet each other. I don't know how are tree of Bexley but their brushes are shit as they lose their hair. P.S. What is your size for suits? I have some nice classik convas suit I could let you with good discount as they are too huge for me. I had to bring them to a tailor but have not still found a good one.
