The best burgers in Paris ? Le Ralph’s. The cosiest dinner place in Paris ? Le Ralph’s. The best dressed waiters ? Le Ralph’s ! There are so many good reasons to go to the Ralph’s restaurant located Boulevard Saint-Germain at the ground floor of the parisian Ralph Lauren flagship store. The place is really beautiful, full of charm and we found nothing to reproach to the food. Easy pick for a flawless saturday night dinner but keep in mind that you’ll have to book a table a few days earlier, should you have to wait 10 minutes on the phone for someone to take your reservation. True story. It happened. But really the Ralph’s burger is simply the best thing I’ve eaten in 2011. And I’ve eaten a lot.

No it’s not a mistake : our love for double-monk shoes extends to the girls’ shoe porn section with this Ralph Lauren Quinlin calf monk strap shoe. I love to see them on women’s feet, just like Garance Doré did with a pair of Church’s brown suede dub monks. It’s maybe the coolest way to wear flat shoes and Ralph Lauren Collection’s black leather pair is a smart wardrobe update instead of ballerines or Repettos.

I’m sure each of you (ladies) has a pair of black boots. Some of you may have several pairs actually. But I’m sure you’re up for a little round-up of what’s hip these days ! To begin with, we can witness a recrudescence of Doc Martens boots after 10 years of complete abscence ! They should be your next boots for next fall or for this summer depending on how bold you want to look ! You might want to wear rubber plastic boots in case of heavy rain ? We got some models too. Maybe you’re looking for the must-have biker boots ? Guess what ? They’re in the selection ! So for any sort of black boots, you should check the selection hereafter !

To me, Ralph Lauren Purple Label suits are the suits of choice for power-dressing. There’s no other label that precisely says “I have the best suit in the room“. You can’t go wrong with Purple Label. Especially with that double-breasted fully canvassed grey wool suit. Classically cut, the canvassed, slim-fit jacket means the wool retains a ‘memory’ of a body’s shape and moulds around it with every wear for exceptional fit. I tried it on yesterday and I can say there is nothing more comfortable. Even my pyjamas aren’t as easy-to-wear. No kidding. The top-end line from Ralph Lauren, Purple Label focuses on exquisite tailoring: over 30 hours of hand stitching goes into making the jacket alone. That explains everything, including the price. Mr Porter has it.

Among the numerous tempting and successful exhibitions in Paris right now, “The Art of the Automobile” is maybe the most talked about. This is one thing having the most complete and serious car collection in the world, but this is another to expose them in a long-lasting exhibition in Paris. I mean, this is a treasury and we should be thankful to Mr Ralph Lauren, lucky owner of all cars who enables us to see them in real ! The showcase is on untill August 28, 2011 at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. Take a look at some of the incredible cars beeing displayed hereunder.

You know what could dress-up any casual summer pant, should it be a chino or a short ? This pair of Ralph Lauren Tassel Loafers could do it with honnors. There are some pairs every man should have and I believe a durable classic pair of loafers is without any doubt. From what I can tell judging by my pair of RL wingtips, is that the quality and detailing is simply perfect. The heel sounds so good on the ground, the shoes are so comfortable it is just unmatch in my already extensive shoe collection.Wear sockless with a navy suit or with chinos for an assured footwear statement. Shorts are permitted too. Mr Porter has them.

Number two of our serie is the embroidered short. Luckily, you can find all sorts of embroidments these days : whales, birds, crowns, anchors… You can find one at the preppiest stores in the world : Brooks Brothers, J. Press and Ralph Lauren even if high-street brands now offer some replicas. I particularly like these shorts. They are still rare enough and add that touch of sophistication. Avoid all sorts of other pattern in your outfit and pair it with classic oxfords and espadrilles/loafers and you’re elligible for the pantheon. J. Press’ collab with Yale University is by far my favourite and I am considering the purchase by the end of the month. Check our selection after the break!
