This week's Journeyman entry sees Paris-based blogger Jordan Henrion take us on a tour of Paris' chicest haunts. Jordan - who blogs under the alias of Les Frères Ainsworth - fantastically embodies the carefree spirit of the well travelled Journeyman with his road-ready ensembles and ability to seek out destinations which stray from Paris' trodden paths. Follow his travels during one weekend in Paris...

LOUXOR

If the weather takes a turn for the worse, take the time to watch an old French movie at the Louxor. It's a legendary cinema in the north of Paris which reopened this year after more than 20 years of closure.

PARIS NEW YORK

Perfect for a rendezvous with friends, Paris New York is the place to head to eat the very best burgers that the French capital has to offer set against the backdrop of a minimal retro design. My personal recommendation? The burger with avocado!

SILENCIO CLUB

Finally, it's time to wear your Reiss suit to go to the Silencio which is an extremely exclusive Parisian club designed by David Lynch. I love it there because it serves the best cocktails in town.
