1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    No Florence this year! What a...never mind. We'll be in Paris instead, looking at showrooms, but mostly sitting on the curb outside Monoprix eating cheap baguettes and caprices des dieux.


    So let's hear it. What do you want to read about? What brands have piqued your curiosity? Which arrondissements do you find most titillating? I haven't spent more than a few days in Paris in...several years, so help me out. We'll have a real live photographer with us this time, which means better pictures than you're used to.

    We'll be covering:

    Capsule

    Tranoi

    Man

    And various showrooms, with maybe some cool stuff to be announced in the future. If you have stores you want to read about, brands you want covered, now's the time.

    As one of the parisian fellows in here, I can recommand you have a look at a shop called Howard's in the 8th district, which is specialized in shirts, handmade ties and other accesories.
    I like what they do a lot.

    You've clearly not been to Paris. There are not vineyards there. That's like someone asking you about stores to cover in NYC, and your response is: "Sonoma Valley?"

    Do better, Uncle Nephew.

    Please don't subject yourself to Monoprix baguettes.

    We are staying in the Latin Quarter. Any suggestions for good patisseries and boulangeries? And bistros that are NOT run by like, Michelin star chefs. Just looking for good places to grab a relaxed bite before heading off into the big city.

    So, back to stores. @basil rathbone , you mind putting your list of recommendeds here again? I know that we'll visit l'Eclaireur and probably told to not take any photos/have all our cellphones and camera equipment confiscated while we are there. Other than that, I'm flying blind.

    Nice. Whereabouts in the Latin Quarter? Closest Metro? Food's not really my thing TBH and most of my time was spent in the Marais, but I'll ask my wife. As far as Boulangeries go, just make sure you get the Baguette Tradition and not the regular Baguette. It's worth the extra 10-30 cents.
    Elevation Store, Royalcheese, AMI, Lemaire, The Broken Arm, Merci (more women's/home), French Trotters are all within walking distance of each other and are all pretty neat. Margiela, Rick in the Palais Royal. All pretty #sfapproved. For anything more exciting, I'm not really your guy.

    If you find your way out to the Marché aux Puces, there was a shop with vintage bleu de travail french worker jackets for as far as the eye can see. Maybe on Rue Jules Vallès?

    Find these dudes and talk to them:

    Some kind of editorial on the French graff scene would be amazing but probably not very easy to get access too. Maybe just the street murals. Ashpools basketball court ; I've still not scene more than a few shots here and there but it seems like the kind of place that could be really interesting for an in depth look.

    Take an $18 RyanAir flight from Paris to Milan and try not to lose your bags.

    Yes to everything here please, from what I've heard the Joachim brothers are really cool and friendly
    (they are also working on their own brand which I'm very excited about and I'm sure others here also would be)

    One or both work or worked at Gant Rugger on Rue Vieille du Temple, close to Lemaire etc, so maybe worth popping in.

    Yeah, definitely check out Pigalle too. There's one on Rue Henry Monnier and the basketball court is close by, on Rue Duperre. If you guys could talk to Ashpool, that would be neat. He seems cool.

    How funny, I will be there from Jan 18-22 and have been making a styleforum-esque supermap on my google maps for the last few days. I am staying in North Marais and from what I have found so far, here are some interesting looking shops and restaurants:
    Food: Septime Hai Kai Holybelly (breakfast) Maison Kayser Frenchie To Go (lunch)
    Style: Melindagloss AMI Beaubien Kitsune
    Mini Colette (from what I have read) - Merci

    I am not from France nor have I ever been, so these recommendations are based solely on my personal research. Also, I acknowledge that some of these may have already been mentioned. These are just a few from my list, looking forward to any other recs posted here.

    As for what to read about, I have been interested in Melindagloss much recently and I am looking forward to visiting their shop.

    It looks like I am missing the cool stuff @LA Guy you mentioned you will be covering, know of anything happening earlier in the week?

    Hmmm... we are actually looking for guys to to maps for Styleforum, and to do some shopping reviews/guides as well. Incidentally, we are also looking for new contract writers. Will it pay your bills? No. Could it be some nice spending money? Yes. Get in touch with me and Jasper.

    Hollybelly is good. Frenchie too. If you have time, pop into Le Marche des Enfants Rougue and go to Chez Alain for maybe the best sandwich/crepe ever. Might be a huge line, so next door across the street is the best jambon beurre at Caractère de Cochon. Du Pain et des Idées for tasty bread/pastry. Jacques Genin for caramels and chocolate. If you're into coffee, there is tons in the Marais-ish - Fragments, Boot Cafe (my fav), Fondation, 10 Belles, Broken Arm, Merci Used Book Cafe (not good coffee, but v cool cafe). None of this is French coffee - it's actually good.

    This is making me feel nostalgic as all hell.

    Broken Arm (the shop) serves coffee too? Or it's a different place?

    Yeah, both. Small coffee shop one side, clothes on two levels on the other side.
