The front sidewalk of Marc Guyot's Cape Cod Shop in Paris is a pleasant place to spend an hour smoking a cigar in the sun. The scenery is always the same and yet ever different - women in summer clothing and the occasional well dressed male.
Inside, Goyot's store is beautiful as if by accident. It is a small space that has been crammed with cloth and clothing from top to bottom until there is room for just one customer at a time. To find the neckties, move two boxes of scarves. To reach the socks, push a stack of shoe boxes aside.
The Cape Cod Shop sells accessories, shoes and made to measure clothing of Guyot's own design. Much of the stock consists of bolt after bolt of shirting, tweed and worsted.
Waiting for Guyot is worth the time.
