For 8 days in Paris, I took:
(a) a Chester Barrie double breasted gray suit,
(b) a Fallon & Harvey bespoke charcoal chalk stripe suit,
Â© a Norman Hilton dark grey flannel suit,
(d) a Chester Barrie navy double breasted blazer (left it behind; Ernest is taking care of it for me)
(e) a Kiton cashmere plaid sport coat,
(f) 3 pairs of trousers,
(g) 10 dress shirts,
(h) 16 ties,
(1) 4 pairs of dress shoes (Cleverly,EG, Grenson and Alden),
(j) Burberry heavyweight lined trenchcoat,
(k) two cashmere sweater shirts
(l) one red vest (had not worn for years; tosssed it when saw moth holes)
(l) one cashmere/silk scarf, two pairs of gloves, underwear, socks, handkerchiefs, belts, braces, etc.
I only bought 2 pairs of shoes there. This is well-dressed?
You certainly weren't letting Paris down with that wardrobe. And I suppose that the bellman in your hotel quite appreciated the tips.
Since spending a year or so on the Fora, I now am relegated to a 2 cart w/bellhop check-in or out at any hotel where I will be for more than 3 days. I do manage to look at my wife when we are checking in hoping that they will think all those clothes and shoes are hers.
