post-ride Guinness. Not dressed well enough for a clothes pic
... never mind. A Guinness is always an excellent subject for a pic!

@Clouseau ... you are not playing fairly. A bridge on the Seine, the sky at sunset, and then? Are you walking with the Monna Lisa under your arm??

Why have none of the Frenchmen on this thread ever mentioned this cool magazine to us? J'accuse! (unless of course I missed it).

Well it is neither here nor now :p

This may be of interest: http://www.mmdc-art.com/fr/monsieur-revue-des-elegances-des-bonnes-manieres-et-de-tous-ce-interesse-monsieur/ (unfortunately one of the untranslated articles)

MMdC constantly writes about dandyism in 2021 (or whatever you want to call "now") although his last post is a bit too close to the Rake for comfort, especially given his previous strong and unique voice: http://www.mmdc-art.com/en/swann-society-3/

Well we need an American guy to keep us updated !

I just had a glance and noticed some nice looks (and some not that nice !) and spotted two interesting articles.

I also saw an ad for the only Parisian shop that sells Valstarinos (i knew it, but it is a deadly reminder), and this might be bad news for my bank account.

The pandemic limited my purchases for a year. The good thing is that I want for a while to buy only needed or quality items at sales prices. It is the case with the three items I bought since last year.
As the shops are closed here, it limited the impulse buys !

On another subject, what are your views on white jeans? I like them and « needed » a pair, so I ordered one online.
They are classic in France and Italy (I think @Luigi_M ?) for spring/summer.
I red a Brit article that made me discover that they are not very well considered in UK, I find this quite surprising as usually I find the Brits have rather bold and eccentric tastes, so white jeans seemed innocent...

I wear white linen pants in the summer quite often. Very nice when it's hot and sticky out.

Also, Zegna makes excellent white jeans. They can usually be found on sale at the big department stores here.

I have a “wheat” colored(light tan, not quite white) pair of Levi 501’s that I will sometimes wear in the summer with a Madras shirt and loafers. Ivy League/80s skinhead chic.
I don’t mind white jeans but they have to be paired with the right gear I guess.

White 501s with boots, FP, and a Trucker were de rigueur here around 1983.
White 501s were my « go to » white jeans, but this time I ordered white Lois for a more (football) casual look.
