Patch - Menswear

patch menswear


Patch is a new menswear brand 100% Made in Spain, recently opened in Madrid in a street that I like very much, quiet and calm but very elegant: Blanca de Navarra 3.  In successive posts I will be reporting other interesting shops worth to be mentioned in that same street. You can say Patch has an English flavour but also traditionally Italian and American east coast. Nice special colours and unique elegant cuts. Bomber jackets, blazers in corduroy with original lining, gabardine pants or plaid shirts are examples of the wide range of products and accessories you can find there. Scott Schuman, from "the Sartorialist" recommends it!!!!!!

Sweets and candy - Caramelos Paco









Caramelos Paco (calle Toledo 55) is something very dear to me. My dad goes there every week to replenish his provisions of candy that then offers to all of us when we go for lunch to his house. He enjoys as a little child maybe because he is diabetic and can only imagine but not taste the joy of savouring sweets.

Concept Stores - Federica & Co

Federica & Co
Hermosilla 26

It is a recent trend to find cool places where a bunch of creative young people gather selling all different items not related among them but that somehow work well together. They usually find nice commercial spaces and create a concept that is simple but classy. Probably one of the consequences of the economical crisis that we are suffering makes people gather and think that being united will help their business! And I think it does!!

Vintage Jewelry and Others - Castillo Encantado at el Rastro




Second due appointment at the Rastro: Vintage shop Castillo Encantado. Best choice for fine vintage jewelry, but it also has handbags, hats and even some small furniture and lamps. Pieces are very exclusive and special so prices are not a bargain.

Ancient Prints - Ojeda at El Rastro

Nuevas Galerias at el Rastro
Ojeda on the right 

Every Sunday el Rastro is a due appointment. I will disclose my favourite places in this blog, one by one, and for a start I propose a very nice old prints and engravings shop at Nuevas Galerias; Alonso Ojeda. It’s situated at the ground level of the galleria on the right side shop number 28. It has a huge choice of old maps and old prints, including views of Madrid. Prices are very convenient and you can do some bargain  (part of el Rastro fun).

Knitting Lessons - Peseta

Kinitting lessons in Madrid




It seems to be the ultimate tendency in Madrid!! Knitting lessons!
In Noviciado 9, close to San Bernardo, in a very genuine neighborhood, you can find Peseta: a very special space for shopping and others. Clothing, wallets, key rings, everything crafted there can be purchased and become an original gift you wouldn’t find elsewhere. But not only; they have done collaboration works with Lomography, Marc Jacobs, Loreak Mendian, Primavera Sound, New Museum, Mugaritz, Eastpak and Berlinale.

Something different for a change. I found this amazing web Regalador.com, with plenty of ideas for presents. What we would like to buy today is "the Dodo Case": the ultimate trendy gadget for iPad in the States!!! used by Obama and many other members of his Administration.
A handmade iPad Case inspired by the journals of known artists, iPad will look like and ordinary book.

Speed and Bacon



Don Ramón de la Cruz 26 




A funny new entry: Speed and Bacon, taking its name from a famous Spanish proverb: "nada tiene que ver el tocino con la velocidad" - there is nothing in common between speed and bacon.

It is a new trendy space at the very heart of Salamanca district in a covered patio - which is the last fashion in Madrid. An interesting space that offeres many different deals from special sales to art – need to keep informed. It also includes a nice little restaurant. Food is easy and good, and prices are very friendly, from €15 to €20. Nice bet for shopping and shopping break.
