It is no secret that I think the majority of American men are poorly dressed.  I could go on in length as to my view of the causes and resulting symptoms of the problem, however, I will save my words for another time and share with you the words of a friend and well dressed gentleman, Oliver Dutton.  Although...

There were a few glaring differences between American and Parisian style that will be commented on.  The first of which is the Parisian gentlemans use of suede in the summer.  In America suede is used in the summer in either white or a light brown color (ie white or dirty bucks, but they can also be of nubuck).  Dark...

It was with much sadness that I left Paris on Saturday.  Between Paris and London I had an excellent two weeks of eating, shopping, touring and socializing.  On my last night in Paris I decided to walk about the city, mainly along the Seine from Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower and got some great shots along the way. ...

Atelier du Bracelet Parisien is one of the coolest and most unique stores I have ever been in.  It is located right off of Rue Saint Honore.  ABP's line of work is small handmade custom leather goods, mainly watchbands, however they do phone cases, iPod/iPad covers, belts and whatever else you could want.  The store and workshop are one in the same,...

Girls, this one is for you... I decided it a prudent use of my time to stop at the Christian Louboutin flagship store at 19 rue Jean Jacques Rousseau.  I had to see what all the rave is about with these red soled little ditties.  I will say, they are quite the shoe, damn sexy as well.  The construction and...

I was walking through the gardens one day last week on a tour and came across this couple.  At first I was laughing that the guy was already carrying things, then I realized how beautiful the scene was.  The arch in the distance is the arch that Napoleon had constructed for himself to get married under.  The building through...

I had just finished dinner and was on my way to the metro when I came across this couple.  I couldn't resist asking them if I could take a picture of them for my blog.  They looked so happy to be in each others company.  They also looked like they should be on the beach, they said that they...

I had just finished a serious afternoon chocolate and pastry bender while on a chocolate tour around Paris's beautiful left bank (yes, there really is an organized tour of about a half dozen chocolate and pastry shops, it was divine and can be found through a tour company called Viator).  All I wanted to do was lay down.  However,...

My friends, I have discovered something amazing.  A Spanish shoe company called Carmina.  Carmina was started in 1997 and is based out of Mallorca.  Until yesterday afternoon I had somehow never heard of this company, however, it was love at first sight.  Upon seeing the store at 4 Avenue de l'Opera I walked right in and what I immediately...

I like art and I love shoes. When these things are combined one should logically conclude that I would love the result.  In the case of Berluti shoes there is little love, but a lot of respect.  I do not particularily care for the shoes nor would I wear them at this point in my life.  However, I do believe they...
