Edit: In the tread British Ties, RJman and Will each make a comment about L'Escalier d'Argent. You would like the ties at A l'escalier d'argent in the gardens of the Palais Royal. You are correct. I was there on Monday and added several bow ties to my collection. I also like the proprietress; she is quite helpful and obviously loves what she does there. But it's the waistcoats that are their raison d'etre. They have a gold and red brocade at this moment. It is stunning. Edit: My original title/tag mistake has been corrected thanks to RJman's advice.
