    [COLOR=FF00AA][COLOR=FF00AA][COLOR=FF00AA]Hi,

    just to inform the tourists who visit Paris with style....
    one of the best high level french clothes is now down.

    The showroom rue de Sèvres is closed..it will be the flagship of Berluti - men clothes (LVMH).

    A star is down..I'm shy !!!!!!

    For bespoke Arnys it will be on the 75 rue des Saint Pères !

    This is old news, discussed here before.

    Arny's web-site finally got transformed into a farewell letter: http://www.arnys.com/.

    It's interesting that they still mention "Ateliers de Grande Mesure Arnys". Is it a separate company now, still under Grimbeut's ownership? It is a common wisdom that RTW always subsidises bespoke -- would be interesting to check validity of it for Arny's.

    [COLOR=FF00AA]Andrey,

    Arnys is the child trademark of the brothers Grimbert.
    They sold 8 monthes ago the walls of the emblematic 12 rue de Sevres front of Hermès...

    I think that Arnys "prêt à porter" doesn't exist anymore.

    LVMH...Berluti will be there in 4-6 monthes

    Arnys bespoke (shirts and suits) 75.rue des Saint Pères -75

    I'm just sad ![/COLOR]

    I made it a point to visit Arnys last fall when I was in Paris. The building is beautiful.

    I was there years ago and tried on the Forestiere and didn't like it. I tried the Forestiere again and still didn't like it. At least I'm consistent. I found this coat that I liked very much.

    The density and body of their unlined ties was incredible. But I couldn't justify the 200+ euro price tag. I get a lot of interesting ideas after visiting their store. I do agree that many of their styles are unwearable.

    Tailored clothing sold there are definitely not SF-approved.

    But the accessories (primarily pocket squares and ties) are were unique. I don't know where else one can find a print like this:

    Yes, for some this is hideous. But I'm glad I bought the tie when I could.

    Much of the beauty in ties are the feel of them...probably more so than any other item of men's clothing, except possibly shoes (but even then, it's more about comfort than feel). Regardless, from what it sounds like they had real "beauty" in their construction.

    Fortunately, I've never in my life thought about what is and isn't SF approved when shopping. Then again I was shopping decades before there was an SF.

    Ever considered having a tailor make a copy it for you?

    I haven't. They did -- at least at one time -- offer custom tailoring. Mostly I use mine as a casual weekend coat during our less than cold California winters.

    I suppose when this one wears out, my best optiwill be be to have it copied.
