Concierge.com's insider take:
Charvet is a haven for the well-dressed man, not just for stuffed shirts—though it's filled with them. For more than 150 years, it has been France's best-known and finest custom shirtmaker, but even if this sort of luxury item is not on your shopping list, visit this five-floor complex just off the Place Vendôme to gawk at the spectacle of hundreds of bolts of brightly colored Egyptian cotton. Everything is either custom-made or customizable, including ties, soft pajama sets, handkerchiefs, and suits. Full custom shirts start at $565. The service is attentive and somber.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 7 pm.
