Here are the 8 best vintage men’s addresses at the Paris Saint-Ouen flea market

What if you found the rare vintage gem for men? From Saturday to Monday, there is always the same excitement in the aisles of the Saint-Ouen flea market, north of Paris. It’s difficult to navigate this maze of vinyl records, designer furniture and vintage clothing. Here is a guide to the best vintage men’s fashion addresses at Puces so that you can find that rare gem during your next trip.

A Vintage Touch

A stand with walls painted orange and decorated with military nets and flags dating from the liberation of France. For five years, Sacha has opened a shop that has become a must at Marché Vernaison — one of the flea markets in Saint-Ouen considered to be the oldest. Sacha specializes in vintage clothing, ranging from the Second World War to the 2000s. As the name of his store, A Vintage Touch, indicates, Sacha wants his customers to take his vintage clothes and mix them with their own style. Understand by this: no total vintage look, but a clever mix of designer clothes, new pieces and a touch of vintage.

Marcel and Jeannette

A shop spread over two stands side by side, located at Marché Vernaison and run by Merry and Virginie for more than seven years. The two women are passionate about period French clothing and their selection goes from the 18the century until the 1960s. You can find moleskin overalls from the 1930s, completely faded by the sun and patched all over. Arranged on a table, we see rolls of vintage fabrics dyed with indigo. On a model, a 1920s linen shirt stands out for its modernity. Whether you are a movie costume designer or simply elegant, you will meet many different personalities there.

Gabriel Attal’s watch is an inexpensive vintage luxury model and perfect for his new role as Prime Minister

The appointment of Gabriel Attal to the post of Prime Minister by Emmanuel Macron on Tuesday January 9, 2024 surprised many people, whether in the political sphere, in the media or among the general public. This is certainly not much, some will say, given the choice to promote Rachida Dati to the head of the Ministry of Culture on Thursday, January 11, but we must admit that seeing a young man of 34 settle in at a such a high rank in French responsibilities is anything but banal. Throughout the Ve Republic, started in 1958, only Laurent Fabius in July 1984 had been appointed Prime Minister under 40 years old. He was then 37 years old and broke the record of Jacques Chirac, promoted in May 1974 at the age of 41. Gabriel Attal is therefore ahead of his time. And it is precisely this time that interests us today.

Always ready to work – he only sleeps four hours and even has several sleepless nights in a row, we learn this week Le Figaro Magazine -, Gabriel Attal always keeps the notion of time on his wrist. For several years, he has put the same watch on his wrist and wears it whatever the circumstances. From his first speeches as Prime Minister at Matignon, traveling with Gérald Darmanin, Minister of the Interior, when he sat in the Assembly, in the Council of Ministers or visiting salons at Porte de Versailles as Minister of the ‘National Education… Gabriel Attal does not take off his vintage luxury watch.

A Jaeger-LeCoultre watch from 1998 for Gabriel Attal

On his left wrist proudly sits a Jaeger-LeCoultre Master Control Chrono, with a leather strap, which does not seem to be the original if we rely on the photos of the new Prime Minister. According to our colleagues at Point, the watch was given to him by his father, who died at the age of 66 on November 12, 2015. As its name suggests, this Master Control Chronograph is a chronograph, with three counters: 12 hour counter at 3 o’clock, seconds counter at 6 o’clock and 30 minutes counter at 9 o’clock. We also note a date window at 4 o’clock, a great originality. And the tachymeter scale which surrounds the indexes. The mechanical movement is caliber 630, regulated by quartz. According to the information we were able to collect from the Jaeger-LeCoultre brand, Gabriel Attal’s watch dates from 1998 (Ref. 145.2.31) and has a 34 mm 18-carat pink gold case (the dial is silver ). A small format that is very fashionable today, as Timothée Chalamet recently demonstrated with his 23 mm Cartier Panthère.
