Hey Guys: Just got back from London and Paris. Much shopping, but time for a little work and sightseeing. Both cities are stunning, boasting beautiful architecture, great transport, superb restaurants, museums, etc. Weather was good in both cities. Shopping is easily as good as NYC in both, probably better. Prices for restaurants in central London and Paris are exorbitant but quality in London was surprisingly good. Paris, of course, had fabulous food. Gordon Ramsay at Claridges was excellent. Very good food and outstanding service and presentation. The only disappointment? Pierce Brosnan's light gray suit. Fifteen, Jaime Oliver's place, was fantastic. Best antipasto ever. London guys dress similar to their brethren across the pond, albeit with fewer loafers! The Parisian guys dress superbly. Great suits complimented by correct shoes. In fact, we saw but two or three fine suits with loafers. The rest had the most fantastic array of lace ups. Just superb. This won't sound too PC, but there seems to be no fatties in Paris, either women or men. Compared to London and NYC. Maybe the news reports are true about the French lifestyle and relationship with food. Coming from a reformed fatty, the city was inspiring. Anyway, here are some shots.
John Lobb, Paris
Ede and Ravenscroft, Savile Row
2.6 million bucks for a one bedroom!! LOL London, sadly, is not for the English anymore:-(
JM Weston, Champs Elysees -- Paris has three stores
Charvet, paris

I see a lot of pictures of shop signs without pictures of stuff inside. If I want to look at logos, I know how to use the internet.

What's wrong with that? I think it's always polite to ask the proprieter's permission, of course.
