I'm a bit more of the George Carlin type.

Can't trust a man who isn't. Carlin truly is one of the greats.

Hmmmm as somebody heading to Paris in June for a month with the better half this concerns me. Speaking of which, I will ask for tips again closer to the time but if anybody has any good suggestions for must visit menswear outlets in Paris please let me know.

Thoughts on good value cashmere sweaters anyone?

 

J Crew have a 20% off sale atm with flat $10 delivery to Aus, putting them at ~$75 a pop.  Obviously not going to be the same quality cashmere as the higher end stuff, but I'm thinking about picking up a couple to check them out.

Jimmy Carr is a phenomenon with hecklers.

 

And Louis CK - one of the best to watch now.

 

I tend to find the British stand-up comedians more enjoyable to watch. Speaking of which - I hear Danny Bhoy's tour of Australia was a hit, with all the new material.

I've read that J Crew cashmere's durability is horrible.

Didn't do too much shopping in Paris, but my first stop was Carmina. Well located (near the Louvre). Rue de Opera I think.

Because the in-store price is so good, they appear happy to let you try various lasts and are even eager to write the details down for you. 

 

Beware they do stock very nice womens shoes as well ie don't take the wife ;)

Watch experts: I have been entrusted with buying my sister's 21st present. The watch we are getting is the Longines La Grande Classique Quartz - 29mm L4.512.4.11.6.

I'm trying to find the cheapest price online while still buying from a reputable dealer.

The cheapest I have found so far is this:

http://www.iconicwatches.co.uk/longines-la-grande-classique-quartz-29mm-l4-512-4-11-6.html

+ shipping + international credit card fee it comes to 600 pounds or so.

They seem to have a good reputation and have a street presence.

Does anyone have any other ideas for where to look?

Additionally, is there anything I should be aware of buying an expensive watch internationally in terms of warranty etc.? They claim "Full Manufacturers International Warranty".

Cheers

You will just miss the summer sales in July, which maybe immaterial if you are after designer/boutique stuff.  

 

Carmina in Paris is about 20% more expensive than direct online. John Lobbs/Hermes is also cheaper in UK, but at that price range, you wont really care.

 

Charvet at Place Vendome is definitely a place to visit, even if just purely for its old world charm.

 

The Metro is your friend, but you may need to hold your breath in summer.

The newest very fine australian merino wool is said to be finer, softer and better wearing than cashmere.
I have no idea who is using it for anything at the moment.

Thanks for that. Do you know when the sales start? We are there mid-June to mid-July.
