There’s a walk I like the most in Paris, it’s the one from Bastille, the site of the former prison taken by the people of Paris in 1789, to the City Hall (Hotel de Ville of Paris) by passing through the quarter of Le Marais. This quarter is called the marsh because it was a real swamp at the beginning of the IXth century before being used as pasture in the XIIth century.
So, from Bastille, you can easily walk down the Beaumarchais Boulevard, and then turn left on the Rue du Pas de la Mule and arrive at the Place des Vosges (check the Galleries of Place des Vosges article), the most beautiful place in Paris. Passing by the art galleries, you reach the Rue de Turenne on your left, where you will find lots of clothes shops, with prices you’d never imagined in Paris. Indeed, there are lots of manufacturers in this district of Paris.
At number 41 in the same street, there is the Bernard Garbo Shop, that you have to know if you are looking for suits at € 150 or very trendy shirts at € 95 for 3. The prices are quite low because they are manufactured and they sell the same merchandise to other shops.
On sale, you can take € 50 off of every suit or jacket (but not on shirts or ties). Go there if you want to mix a wonderful promenade with fashionable shopping all around (see also Rue des Francs Bourgeois just nearby!).
