    That's awful. Just horrendous.

    All right, thanks. Normally just step on in then? I'll make it a priority on my next Paris visit.

    You're new, and you seem to be friendly, so will give you some advice. The tone on here is snarky and irreverent. Answers to obvious questions like "do/can you call?" will be met with appropriate levels of sarcasm.

    Yes, they do bespoke by walk-in. The cutters work there and there are always people to help you. I recall that some years ago a member posted about an experience where he had difficulty with the door at charvet, and was so put off by trying to get in that he wrote off the whole thing and left. You can probably search the board if you want to read about it. I've found that most doors can be opened with either a push or a pull, and the remainder generally revolve or are automatic. I don't remember having any difficulty with the entrance at charvet.

    I wasn't being sarcastic either. I read everything on the Internet with levity, lol.

    Thanks everyone (in seriousness).

    Still too warm to wear it but we're getting closer. But to kill the mystery buzz, it's the black version that is still (but just barely) available at The suitable Wardrobe.
