Le Marais district is the most fashionable neighborhood filled with the most trendsetting men’s fashion stores (Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré put aside).
We take through this neighborhood for a day of trendsetting shopping for men, among locals and most of all, make you discover the best of our French brands and concept stores, mostly created by young French entrepreneurs and fashion lovers.
Most of these brands are affordable luxury brands (not too expensive but you’ll still have to spend a few hundreds euros to create a perfect lookbook from head to toes). Whether you are 18 or 60 years old, want to look like dandy or a yuccie, want to buy a trench coat, a fitted suit, velvet loafers, an unusual colorful hipster sweater, or just some cool and laid-back classic French Clothes, these stores have everything you need.
Follow the guide on our dedicated map and in our presentation below. (Oh and most of these stores have a women section, so your female friend will have no problem joining you on this journey!)
