I really like shopping sound maybe odds for a straight guy, but love to go those stores, and get the latest. Of course, I am usually a lot quicker than women, I know where to go ,get it and out. I did wrote a story before entitled “Best Shopping, my shopping in Paris” in my blog but its time to tell you more of this peculiar pastime.
There is many things to shop in Paris, from real luxury to common items, and all are magnificents. People sometimes think that items will be cheaper here,and ask me, but in reality most of the well known items are the same price when you compare shipping cost. Still, buying IN Paris is a heck of a lot better than elsewhere….
Of course, I can only talk about men’s fashion, the rest is up to you lol!! Silk & Cashmere is one of my favorite outlets and the fav store is at 31 rue du Four, 75006, Turkish brand of silk and cashmere of course, really great here is the webpage and store
A bit off the fashion trend but very chic, in my fav area of Paris the 16éme arrondissement, you find the L-Arc club at 12 Rue de Presbourg 75116 if you want to show off your new purchase fashion, this is it. Very near the arc de triomphe and pure fashion Paris, webpage
Another twist with opera included is the faboulous Le Carmen at 34 rue Duperré, south of Pigalle in the place, need groupies at night, and great Opera, as it was here that Georges Bizet wrote Carmen, so mingle with great musicians and glamorous people showing off your latest at webpage

Moving over to Pl Vendome to Opera along rue de la paix, lots of watch stores there but the Comptoir des Cottonniers ,17 rue de la Paix, webpage
Other areas dear to me, as to cover all of Paris lol!!! blvd Saint Germain,Rue Saint Sulpice,Rue du Four, Rue de Sévres, and rue de Grenelle. Near blvd Saint Germain at 48 rue des écoles you have my outdoor favorite Au Vieux Compeur, bages winter and summer sports equipement camping etc, webpage
