RenDezVous Underwear

One always needs new underwear right?  How about a new swimsuit, or a cool, tight t-shirt to show off your muscles later that night at the clubs?

Well I've come across a boutique in Vieux Nice by the name of RenDezVous Underwear that sells all that and more.

RenDezVous Underwear

For someone like myself who is more than a little obsessed with underwear, and the men that wear them, I'm glad I have found this place.

I wasn't happy with what I currently had to wear to the beaches and one afternoon when I was walking through Vieux Nice I came across RenDezVous Underwear and saw that they not only sold a wide range of underwear, but also swimsuits, beach sandals, tank tops, shoulder bags and even jewelry.
Needless to say, I was more than happy to indulge.

Looking through the large variety of items, I was able to find a swimsuit that interested me; I tried it on and knew immediately I had made the right selection.  What I liked about the range of swimsuits too was that I was buying a quality made garment.

This is not the kind of place where you would find something ill fitting that one can purchase from just any tourist type shop.  RenDezVous Underwear is not one of those places.

You can tell that knowledge of product and care have been taken into account in selecting which brands RenDezVous Underwear would carry.  It's clear the boutique's owner has chosen high quality products with the clientele kept in mind.

Next for me, after choosing the right swimsuit, was the underwear.  Now although this is where I can get a little crazy and want a bit of everything, I was able to somehow contain myself to just a couple of pieces.

I saw every style of underwear you can imagine: jock, string, boxer, and brief, you name it and in every color and name brand such as: Diesel, XTG, Pull-In, Emporio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, UDY and Bikkembergs, amongst others.

What I also really liked, were the prices!  Much of what is in RenDezVous Underwear could be bought for either the same price I would pay in North America or for a lot less.  And the selection was the same, if not better from what I've seen when I go shopping in comparable local and competitive boutiques.

To get to RenDezVous Underwear, stay within Vieux Nice.  You can continue to explore the labyrinth of narrow streets amongst the restaurants and shops and I'm sure you will easily come across it just as I did.  You could also get there by looking for landmarks such as the Cathédrale Sainte-Réparate at: 3 Place Rossetti.

The cathedral stands out in the square not far north of Cours Saleya.  When you find it, stay on the side of the steeple and walk not even the full length of the cathedral until you see rue Colonna d'lstria to your right, almost immediately you will see RenDezVous Underwear at: 3 rue Francis Gallo.

RenDezVous Underwear has been open since August of 2005.  The owner Philippe, is a very friendly, and well-known individual in the LGBT community.  He lets you enjoy your shopping experience and won't try and sell you something that may not suit your body type.

The boutique is open seven days a week, including holidays, from 10:30am-7:30pm.

Enjoy some of RenDezVous Underwear's swimwear and underwear shows from over the past few years.
