What to wear in Paris

People ask this question fairly often, so I've gone and taken some pictures of what people are wearing in Paris today. Actually, they're all men, but I'll be doing this weekly now, so next week there are sure to be some femmes.

I'm going to buy my husband a black and white vertical striped suit for our upcoming trip to Paris this summer!

Phread, what fun! Hey, even the French men have a way with scarves, n'est ce pas?

Phread, I've seen your name often on this forum but never knew you write a blog. I took a look and I'm hooked. You have a way with words! Believe me, I don't need one more thing to read on the internet every day, but I can't resist bookmarking yours.

I don't see any shorts, tee shirts with silly sayings or giant white clown sneakers - even on the guy in the riding costume. (And maybe he really had been riding.)

As for the b/w striped suit - yes, there are eccentrics everywhere. But stylish eccentrics.

Phread, your blog is great, if you are Sylvia but blogs aren't exceptable except by link here. otherwise all our members would post theirs and that would end things.
I have several friends whose blogs I would love to post.

That's because it's Paris and all the German tourists had gone home already.

Please keep up with the streets shots, I love to see what people are wearing. We are heading to France this summer and I look forward to spying on les Parisiens as the weather gets warmer, especially on the men--but in only order to help my husband choose just the right thing.

Leaving on Wednesday for Paris and keeping an eye on the weather and the temperatures. I keep thinking "it's spring" but temps in the 40s and 50s has me wondering. I am debating bringing boots...thought I saw one or two ladies in the background of your photos wearing those. Any advice?

Great news Cigale! I checked out the forum guidelines, and your friends can post links to their blogs as long as they are non- commercial. But don't worry about it ending things. you're allowed to post your blog on an other popular travel forum and all it has done so far is enrich the exchange.
Coquelicot - Its new... only been doing it for 3 weeks. Until now I've only written professionally for an online Mag about Paris. But posting a link to that would be against the forum guidelines.
Nytraveler - He had been riding.... his bicycle! He arrived at the café riding it on the very crowded, busy sidewalk.
To the rest of you... glad you enjoyed the Paris moment.

Excellent photos, phread, but I'm glad that those outfits are confined to the 6th arrondissement!
