Money Where Your Mouse Is

Let’s face it, when it comes to fashion and lifestyle, men don’t exactly throw themselves on a fad—particularly not French men. That’s where La Belle Echoppe comes in. A collaboration between Gallic retailers French Trotters and, the online men’s shop is dedicated to products “made in France.” You know, those provinces with charming, heavily accented names like Pyrénées, Côte d’Azur, and Rhône-Alpes (a complete list can be found on the site)—which is to say, items with character, history and authenticity. (We won’t bore you with that other A-word: artisanal.) These include bags by Bleu de Chauffe, Basque espadrilles by Don Quichosse, grooming accessories by Thiers Issard, nautical Breton shirts by Le Minor, and combs and shoehorns by L’Atelier de la Licorne. It’s so très continental, you might as well be nibbling on pâté and quaffing cognac while you browse online.
