Shopping in Madrid
Having spent my girlfriends’ birthday weekend in Madrid, some shopping was of course in order.
For the mrs. there was plenty to see, but also for the #menswear crowd there are some nice spots.
1) Carmina - they have multiple shops in Madrid, this one on the photo was at Claudio Coello, and is the bigger of the two. The sales guy helping us was very friendly and knowledgeable, the collection in store was very extensive. Definitely recommended. Walked out with this longwing.
2) Meermin. In the same street as Carmina, their collection in store wasn’t as extensive as online unfortunately. Still a nice location and priced very decently.
3) Tombolini. Italian menswear brand with some extremely light tailoring: http://www.tombolini.it/uomo_ai2013/ . Check out their Flying jackets.
Other cool stores to check out are all in the Salamanca area.
