"While London is certainly the shopping "paradise of men" just as Paris has long been acknowledged the ''paradise of women, '' still both cities offer tempting attractions to voyagers of either sex, and the familiar aphorism, "London for men's clothes and Paris for women's, '' may occasionally be reversed. The two cities are not so far apart, despite race prejudices, but that their standards sometimes overlap. To-day a traveling woman may not deliberately go to London for French novelties, yet beautiful French blouses and model gowns may sometimes be picked up there out of season for a song. The choice London shops are, most of them, very small, and since they cannot carry a large stock, things are disposed of for what they will bring when it comes time to lay in a new supply. The women of Great Britain themselves will tell you that the time to look for bargains is late June. That is when they contrive, if they buy cautiously - and what English person does not? - to be in London. June marks the closing of the social season," [...] This still very interesting shopping guide is a reprint of the originally published book from 1912
