Usually 34th St. is the consolidation store.. Last season, Philly got a huge amount of consolidation from the New York stores, as they have extra space that is not normally used. After that, what was left over was sent to Paramus, NJ. So it may vary by season, but 34th St. is probably a good bet if you're looking for some fall/winter markdowns.
Should be on the blog later this week
Honestly, no idea. I know that they usually pick one store where all the remainders get sent and are marked down very significantly. The stuff that doesn't sell at all after that, my guess would be that it is donated somewhere. I know that Ross Dress for Less has a policy of donating items that don't get sold, as stores like this are kind of a last resort for merchandise.
A few notes -- 1) Re: Mabitex -- I've been told that the reason there were no Mabitex pants this prior season is because Mabitex SpA went out of business. Admitted that Yoox has some Mabitex up for Spring, but my guess is that may be some left overs from a year or so ago, or they got whatever was left when the company went under. 2) Jey Cole Man merchandise is out in every store. This stuff is really nice, and it appears they got in decent volume for a change. For those...
Yes, read the second entry - "Carrel S.p.A is a subsidiary of Milena Confezioni S.p.A."
Yes, Carrel shirts are pretty good. They are made by Milena SpA, as are most of the other shirts in stores right now until the Spring selection from Sait comes in -- Milena makes for a wide range of labels, but you'll mostly find stuff from Marcus, Del Siena, B>More and Carrel (the latter three being their own brands). All the boxed shirts you might see in store are from Milena, outside of the ones marked 'Crispino'.A side note to those interested in pants -- I have not...
For future reference, the Wall St. store is usually a complete waste of time. If you're spending time down there for some reason, go to C21 instead.
Hopefully will find out. I'm trying to eek out some more details before next week.
Quick update -- All stores will be doing inventory later this week if they haven't done so already and Spring merchandise will start to arrive next week. As has been the case for the last few years, the best stuff comes in the first few months of each season, and I expect that I will be updating my blog and this thread with some frequency, rather than just once a week, and already plan on making a few trips up to NYC.
If you're still looking, Ruelala has some very nice Moreschi's on sale today for $129.
