^ I like that very much.
+1 -- G&G?
(Btw, I must say that I am fan of your WAYWRN posts )
Thanks bis, no these are Delos.
G&G are not very well retailed in France. That's a pity, but my banker prefers it this way.
That means a lot to me, Romain, thank you! And those Delos are amazing.
My wife is currently in Paris right now - as I see you are located there, give me a heads up on any soldes going on I can direct her to find a sartorial souvenir for me!
Unfortunately it's not the soldes period (after Christmas, or late june), there are maybe some specific soldes for some shops, I'll try to see.
Anyway, she still can go to : http://www.noblessedenaples.com/ (rue de la Paix) to get some neapolitan goodies (ulturale ties with corallo for example, but you may prefer Charvet wich is close and more typical).
Or there for some frenchyier stuff : http://www.marcguyot.com/4.aspx?CategID=2a81c9db-650d-4dac-a307-c918efbebb5f&sr=0 (rue Pasquier, Madeleine neigbourhood), also provides some Simmonot Godart.
She will also find many accessories (gallo socks, ties, scarfs, links, handkerchiefs) at Kimono, 74 boulevard Haussmann. A bit cheaper than the shops previously mentionned, but nice products.
Ask her to stop in at Arnys Paris for a pocket square, socks and a tie.
Good tips! I should have thought about Gallo socks before.... I think they are closed tomorrow and she leaves on Monday. Shit!!
That too.... damn, I was so not prepared for this. Pretty sure they are closed Sundays.
Arny's is also a good suggestion.
But all of these will probably be closed tomorrow.
You can ask your wife to see if Kimono on Bd Haussmann is open (it's located on a touristic area), if it's not, and if she really loves you ( ), she will go to Galeries Lafayettes Haussmann, this grand magasin is close and will be open tomorrow, and, guess what? They're making discounts this week end. Your wife should find you some Gallo there.
Very Nice, Romain - is there a pix of the complete outfit?
OOPS - I thought I was in WAYWRN thread..
No I don't have other pictures sorry (actually I thought about making some, but I don't know why I didn't).
For your information I was wearing these prince of wales pants (2 pleats) with a navy cardigan and a white button down.
You will just have to make a quick 3 -4 day trip yourself next month and pick up these essentials ........
Le Bon Marché is open this Sunday as there is a "Très Bon Marché" week (sales - around 30 percent off certain lines).
No Arnys, but it stocks Gallo socks in the men's dept on the ground floor. There's a selection of Drakes scarves on the same level and the basement level is currently hosting a pop-up shop based on London fashion: More Drakes scarves plus pocket squares (the Drakes medieval tapestry pochettes are available singly in red and olive green).
^ Got you by PM, thanks!
Yeah - I think next year we are all making the pilgrimage...
