An Instagram Account Devoted To Parisian Men

by Jeanne Sutton
30th Mar 2015

Remember that Instagram account all the way from New York of hot guys reading on public transport? And the one with hot guys and their dogs?

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.

Beautiful !! Merci Christine 😻 #MecsMetroParis #Paris #Parisian #boy #sexy #metro

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.

Women are invited to submit their illicit and appreciative snaps to the account by email. Creepy? Or tr’s bien? Either way, here’s a selection of our favourite Metro cruising mecs.

Alors la on dit OUI OUI OUI !! #MecsMetroParis
