Well, the French have gone and put their own effortlessly cool spin on internet stalking handsome men with Mecs Metro Paris, mecs is slang for guys in French, an Instagram account devoted to detailing the urbane men of the French capital who get from A to B by Metro carriage. The account has been going since February and has so far accumulated 226 images.
There’s a lot of variation in outerwear and hair styling, but the overall effect makes you want to move to the city and to start dating a jazz pianist. Like in that movie One Day, only with a completely different ending.

Alors la on dit OUI OUI OUI !! #MecsMetroParis
