(Kaga @ 06 Dec. 2004, 4:15) As they say on French telephones, veuillez patienter. They're obviously updating that page and it should be ready in a day or so. Ah, ernie, good to have you talking about clothes again. Question: are the UK prices for H&K better than those in euros at the rue Rivoli store? The ties on the whole are better quality than those on Jermyn street, but only insofar as all the ties in the Paris shop are handmade, while most in the Jermyn St shop are machine-made. Both are high quality.
In Paris price use to be as following : 1 or 2 shirts = 72 euros 3 to 5 shirts = 69 euros 6 shirts and more = 67 euros I guess it was 45/44/43 Â£ in London. So prices are very close is you take the exchange fees into account. Ties in Paris are not the same as in London for H&K. I do not know which are better. The biggest difference is for cashmer scraves but I do not know if they are the same. Shirts in Paris have problem of sizing so I prefer buy in London. Have you seen the new h&h site? Better than the old one but nothing exciting, better shop in shops.
All the orders I have placed with H&K in London (5 or 6 orders, can't recall) left me very satisfied with H&K. The products were as promised and the sizing / quality was consistent every time. Ernest, I know you have had problems with the Paris store, thus I would suggest that you purchase only from the London store and save your self the frustrating problems that have arisen with the Paris store (alas I repeat myself, I have mentioned this to Ernest in two different forums on several occasions over the past few months).
