Not everyone likes this, you just gotta dare!

Great Vintage Catch at Marche aux Puces in Paris: ADOLPHE LAFONT Blue de Travail

Last weekend I was in Paris at was very lucky with finding some great Vintage treasures.
I have been looking for a pair of MOLESKIN TROUSERS for a while and this time I bumped into one at the famous Marche Aux Puces in Paris (St. Ouen - Portes de Clignancourt) The best thing is the way this pair of trousers fits, it is not too baggy (usually I find these works pants way too wide) but just right and very comfortable. It looks like you can still order them. I normally wear jeans size 34 and I bought the French size 50.  Check out the website or have a look at the brochure.

LORA PIANA: These superbe fabrics don't need a logo!

Whenever I admire the best fabrics in the world I just walk into a Loro Piana store.
No where else can one find soo much Comfort and Quality!

And yes, it is very very very expensive. When your wallet is small, try one of their outlet stores and walk to the end of it, that is where they sell the last leftover pieces with 70 to 80 % discount. Even than it is not cheap, but trust me, the quality is outstanding!

Here are some great examples in wool, cashmere, linen and cotton, I hope you can almost feel the softness through the large detailed pictures I have selected for you.

By the way, they say the sheep and goats are treated well, with these prices I am willing to believe them.

Timberland and Pendleton

Timberland and Pendleton decided to work together.
I only wish Timberland would have taken more daring Pendleton colors and combinations!
(like Dr. Marten did as you can see here)

MAMIE BLUE: a very special Vintage shop in Paris

One of the best vintage collection I have ever seen!
It is fairly expensive, many items such shirts are around 50 to 70 euro.
But they might just have that one item you have been looking for.
