Spending time at the dinner table and cook homemade tasty dishes is a true French Art. The key are the ingredients, only use quality products that you will shop at the local markets which origins you can track. It goes without saying that the attitude is the same for the clothes you buy. A French man will be always very careful with the origins of his clothes. He usually finds pieces that will certainly be a bit pricey but which will last and age well. The key to French style is to feel comfortable in your clothes and get attached to them. Elegance is discretion. It’s exactly the same in all human relations. If you start to show too many logos or branding, you’re imposing something else, you’re not yourself anymore. French men are true fashion connaisseur nowadays, magazine dedicated to men style are booming. Hedi Slimane, Saint Laurent’s designer, changed the way men pictured suits. Now, it is a true fashion piece, closer to the body. He refined the pants and shortened the blazer. To get the true parisian flair style, a man needs to own a collection of scarfs. It is a must have and will complete a look effortlessly. These accessories are even starting to replace the tie. Get different scarves, with different materials: neutral, fluid,light,silk,viscose … You need a very colorful one to brighten your days and get the attention … Parisian men are copying their stylish trendy fellow. They understood that you need to mix to build your own true look. They know it’s perfect to mix an affordable white t-shirt with a designer wool shirt and vintage boots. They master the art of shifting and mixing. They run away from the monogram clothing and ostentatious pieces. No more fast-fashion for these male fashionistas! They only swear by the label Kitsuné because it was able to bring a new look on masculine fashion!
