    I have ordered the box. It is a lovely one and seems to be a good buy. You are right about Le Fouquet's cafe being expensive. My wife had a Coca Cola there 15-20 years ago for 35 FF. Since our hotel has a nice lounge, we can meet there. I am posting info about it for other forum members. http://www.hotelvernet.com/public/salon/us_index.htm and http://www.hotelvernet.com/public/sa...m?photo3_2.jpg and http://www.hotelvernet.com/public/sa...m?photo1_2.jpg Just let me know when you would like to meet. We look forward to meeting your friend too, as well as any other forum members who can join us. Although this is our 24th trip to Paris (our favorite city), I can assure you that your English is better than my French. This email is to confirm the receipt of your recent order from Cufflinks.com.  If your order is being shipped in the United States, the best way to track your order is to enter your cufflinkspremier order number at the bottom of our home page at www.cufflinks.com .  Date    Tue Nov  2 08:07:41 CST 2004 Ship to  Kenneth Pollock      Atlanta GA 30309      US United States     Bill to  Same E-Mail   KenCPollock@AOL.com (emailed) Payment  MasterCard Name        Code      Qty   Each  Options ------------------------------------------------------- Leather Cufflinks  ITL-206     1  109.00 Collector's Case               Subtotal  109.00               Shipping   0.00                 Tax   0.00                Total  109.00

    Fouquet's is a trap for tourists in fact... 24th? Incredible. You must know this city better than I do, for exemple I have never been to Fouquet's (but know his reputation and prices) May be you could give me some good adresses for clothes... I will give you more details about the appointment before you leave, for the moment I can not give you a hour because up to the 22/11 I am having english lessons and do not know if it will be in the morning or in the afternoon. Thanks for all. May be you will like the box and take one for you too. Do you prefer me to give you Euros or Dollars ?

    You can get that jacket shipped to France. With the strong Euro, I would really suggest doing that.

    Can someone help me for this? This is not available in France .

    Thanks for you advice BUT shipping fees are more than USD 50 and I will pay VAT of 20% and custom right of 10% + exchange fees = that will increase the price of 50% at least If someone bring me the jacket, Euros will be all the more stronger since I will avoid all these fees. It is also a way to meet new people and may be to make some friends. And I have no credit card, I use cash and check only so Ican not buy in US

    If someone wants a french stuff not available in US, he could ask, I could find it and you could take it back in US...

    I will set up a international traffic of clothes.

    I only ate at Fouquet's restaurant once, 20 years ago, when it had a Michelin star; it was excellent and reasonably priced. I know that it became a tourist trap later, but I hear that it has improved with the addition of the two star chef from the Hotel Martinez in Cannes. We may try it during our stay. I hear that a nearby new place named Flora is wonderful.
    I do not do much shopping in Paris; mostly looking. Although the selection is varied and wonderful, Paris is an expensive town and I usually buy my English clothing and shoes in London. I do want to go by Berluti, Albeladejo, John Lobb and Weston. I know that Bexley sells nice trees.
    I only have 6 pairs of cuff-links, but I want to see the box, in case I want one for myself.
    Either Euros or Dollars is ok. If you want to pay in Euros, we can use the exchange rate in the newspaper on the day we meet. I usually buy a Herald Tribune or USA Today every day.

    A little off topic, but what do those of you who have dined there think of Restaurant Georges? tourist trap or fine dining?

    Which one? Thereare two Chez Georges; one on Rue De Mail, where I ate, and another in the 17th, famous for its large portions of very hearty food and huge eclairs.

Tell me how you find the box as soon as you receive it and take a picture with your cufflinks in the box if possible. I have never been to Albaladejo, I heard about this brand on this forum. I will go and see soon. Have you ever been to Aubercy? These shoes are much better than Weston. You have also 2 crocket&jones shop which may be not more expensive than London. I agree with you for London, this is the best city for men. I prefer euros as everybody will save : if the spot rate is for exemple 1.27 USD for 1 EURO and you go to change in an office : you will pay 1.3 UDS for 1 euro I will receive 1.25 USD for 1 euro + fees In this case if i give you 86 euros instead of 109 USD both will save money. Ok for the exchange rate in paper (rate of the day before) the day we will meet each other. I don't know how are tree of Bexley but their brushes are shit as they lose their hair. P.S. What is your size for suits? I have some nice classik convas suit I could let you with good discount as they are too huge for me. I had to bring them to a tailor but have not still found a good one.

    You have also an H&K shop in Paris, just next champs elysee.

    I could ask them to sell you the shirts at sales price but as the employees of this shop are rather moody this may not work...

    What else? There is an outlet shopping center near Eurodisney which is good for women and sometimes for men = LA VALLEE. I could go with you if you want.

    It said 5-6 business days, so I assume next week.
    Sorry, I will not be able to take pictures of the box, as I do not have a digital camera.
    I will go to Aubercy too, although if you have seen my shoe list, you know that I do not need any.
    Euros are fine.
    I wear a 40-41R (euro 50-52R) suit depending on the cut, but I am not a big fan of very shaped cardin types of suits. I am more into English.

    My suits are 52R and 53R so too large anyway. I agree with you, best suits are english. What do you think about H&K? Let me know when you receive the box and give me your feelings about it. I have not see your list but I think you do not buy because you need but because you like shoes otherwise you would only have 3/4 pairs.

    That's real funny. I had high school classmates who were going to stay in France for a summer in one of those exchange programs. They were thinking of not bringing anything else in their suitcases except Levis to sell. Of course, our french teacher got pissed at this attitude and told us that France was not some 3rd world country.
