A must-visit for dapper men, Charvet—France's finest custom shirtmaker—has been in business for over 150 years.
Said to be the world's first ever shirt shop, Charvet was founded in 1838.
The store sells ties, pocket squares, underwear, and pajamas as well, plus women's shirts, all custom-tailored or straight off the peg.
