Custom Leather shoes Part 1

On The Poor Mans Tailor

I'll work on this tomorrow, I have been reorganizing all of my supplies and household goods in preparation of a move in the near future. Sorry about the delays everyone.

If you would like to get to work on the project it is a good time to order what you will be needing to actually construct your shoes.

Culture Quirks from Paris

On A Business Odyssey - Nat Bruno

I visited Paris recently to see my brother and his girlfriend who have been living there for the past two years. Overall, Paris is a wonderful city filled with lots of beautiful, well-dressed people. I had a great time checking out all of the sights and tourist spots around the city - below are some of the observations that I made about Parisian life.

Almost all Parisians leave the city and vacation in August. However, the city doesn’t shutdown and at least one bakery is required to be open per neighborhood during the vacation month of August. Read more about this here.

Cafes do not serve coffee - only espresso in small little cups. Also, most cafes do not serve drinks in to-go cups. Parisians are great single-taskers. When it is time to eat or drink, they stop, go to a cafe or restaurant, eat or drink, and do solely that activity. You NEVER see anyone walking around drinking a Starbucks.

I love this aspect of Paris - everyone dresses well. No one leaves their house wearing pajamas or allowing their hair to be messy. You never see sandals (except on fat Americans) or even shorts. Women wear dresses and high heels. Men typically wear slacks and dress shoes or nice sneakers. Parisians care about how they present themselves to the world and it shows.
