Sauver le Monde des Hommes

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Men's fashion is to women's as 5ive is to the Spice Girls: a shoddier, far less versatile imitation. So we're inclined to cheer the opening of any new menswear shop, even if it doesn't do anything too radical – which Sauver le Monde des Hommes doesn't. If you're looking for classic brands – Stan Smith, Saint James – this is the place for you. But if you're after something more contemporary, you'll have to make do with a small-ish range: Suit Apparel jumpers (€95), Rivieras shoes (€55), Sacrebleu tees (€45).
If you find your shopping basket filling up with French labels, that's because the shop's stated mission is to bring back classic men's fashion à la française. The concept extends to a modest selection of Franco-centric accessories (watches, belts, ties), books on fashion and music history, and magazines (including Time Out fave 'Schnock'). After all, what is a dapper gentleman without an education?
