No risk of fashion faux pas at this safe but expensive men’s emporium on the Left Bank.
This 20 square metre boutique dresses men from head to toe with trendy new and second-hand items. Starting from the bottom up, you’ll find inimitable Stan Smith trainers, sold in black (€85) and white (€110), with laces or Velcro (€95). There’s a great selection of monochrome New Balance trainers (€135-€200), as well as Reeboks and Converse. Clothes wise, there’s no risk of fashion faux pas as outrageous designs are few and far between. The shop essentially offers the classics, such as Levi 501s, K-Ways (€110-€220), Lee shirts (€80-€110), Nike tracksuits and Burlington socks (€10). But you can also dig up more exclusive pieces imported exclusively into France, particularly from Japanese brands. Among these, Orslow trousers and eye-catching Kapital bandanas (from €30).
The accessory selection includes gloves, hats, bracelets, bags and scooter helmets. And as you might expect from such a hip outlet, Jinji also has its own little vintage corner. It’s mainly American military outfits, and the prices are way above what you might expect in a dedicated second-hand clothes shop (we’re talking €80-€300 apiece). The price tags aren’t for everyone, but the wide selection of quality garments for men make this a rare gem.
