I will be Paris in 2 weeks and I was wondering if anyone had some advice on where to find high-quality menswear at low prices, and, or, on sale.

I think sales periods are set by law. The Frogs on the board can tell you when they start. Usually in January, I believe. There is an APC outlet-type store somewhere in Paris. There are also some discounters like La clef des marques and Mouton a cinq pattes, but they usually don't have anything good. There are outlets at the end of one of the RER lines but I wouldn't go there unless I had done and seen everything of interest in Paris already.

The French, as a general rule, don't dress exceedingly smart, too gaudy for my blood. With the exchange rate on the dollar, you can basically consider everything to be a 20-30% discount. Best menswear is to be found on the right bank near the Louvre on rue Saint HonorÃ
and around Opera

Most of it is still more expensive than in the States.
