The infamous Parisian streets renowned for its glamour and rich history, Barney and Ferro make their first stop at Avenue des Champs-Elysees known for beguiling visitors with its ritz and allure for as long as it has existed. Dominated by the famous Arc de Triumph, the avenue offers Barney and Ferro with the ultimate Parisian experience with designer shopping including Vuitton, Loewe and Celine amongst many more, luxurious dining and a stunning view of all of Paris from the top of Arc de Triumph.

Being in the fashion capital of the world, Barney and Ferro fulfilled their very first wish from their bucket list. The two gentlemen in Paris find their way in an auction at the palace of Versailles and decide to spend their hard earned money on investing in Louis XVI’s wine chalices. Exquisitely chic and à la mode in crisp and well-tailored pleated pants detailed with vertical welt pockets tapered on the hem paired with an open, rolled sleeved button down in white. The look is put together with smart and well cut vests in solid mustard and ochre color scheme followed by neatly structured navy bow ties with white polka dots, Barney and Ferro look sartorially savvy, no less than actual Frenchmen. Living the urban lifestyle for a few weeks, Barney and Ferro were desperate in need of a retreat to nature and planned to go to the South of France.

Lavender scented warm summer breeze calls for days to be spent on the French Riviera, according to Barney and Ferro. Both the gentlemen opt for well fitted shorts in the color of their choice. Barney in an all-white ensemble including the tuxedo style tailored shirt with minimalistic details of cuff in hues of mint. The outfit was complemented by a pair of fresh mint green suspenders, a boater hat and a customized lapel pin to add a touch of individual style. Ferro settled with crisp white shirt similar to Barney’s paired with rich Brown Burgundy shorts and suspenders to go with it, also completing the look with a hat and personalized lapel pin in jute. They spent their time in their Villa Acaia in Cannes wonderfully. A stunning interior-designed villa overlooking the Bay of Golfe Juan towards the Iles de Lerins, a short drive to the coast and Cannes. Seeking a shift in surroundings, the two companions make up their mind to take a drive to the countryside.

Barney wants to surprise Ferro with his newly bought vintage Cadillac Eldorado 1959 and decides to take him to Provence for lunch at a place called The Luberon. Characterized by a series of strikingly picturesque perched, hill top villages, dating back one thousand years or more. On this long drive which is followed by a short stay in the Luberon, the attire Ferro went with consists of classic collared button down shirt with intricate details on the sleeve placket followed by a double breasted formal waistcoat with shawl lapel and studded gold buttons, perfectly tailored made to measure. The two pleat pants in white made with premium tropical fabric with extended belt which consists of side buckle adjuster. The apparel is accessorized with a feathered lapel pin made of a metal chain and leaf, and a maroon and navy bow tie. Barney’s choice of get-up was rather semi casual and comprised of a half sleeved, pleated tux shirt in powder pink breaking stereotypes to stick with “manly” colors. This is paired well with greyish blue tapered pants which features front flap pocket and two double welt pockets. The entire get-up was nothing short of quintessential and exemplary choices of fashion statements pieced together in harmony.

Fashion is ever evolving, like Barney and Ferro’s choices according to their own personal tastes. France reaffirmed its love of fashion with the development of haute couture, fitting clothing to a particular client and the opening of the great courtier houses. The utmost attention to detail, an eye of tailoring, rightly chosen premium fabrics, trims and other accompanying accessories, made to measure are all the essentials that make up a comfortable and posh gentlemen, one who stands out on account of his fashion choices.
