Ha. There are a lot of Daffy's-only brands being lost w/the closing of the chain (Mastai Feretti/Truzzi, Del Siena, Gazzarrini, Jey Cole Man...). Unless the men's buyer winds up at a place like Century 21, I foresee a lot of these brands disappearing from the States for a while, though, Incotex will still be available elsewhere, just not at Daffy's prices. I will touch base w/some of my connections and see if they know where that buyer is headed. If not, I am thinking...
There have been two store openings in the last few years -- one in Times Square, another in the Bronx at co-op city. The thing is they added those two stores, and revenue stayed the same, but of course, expenses went up. There are a lot of additional problems and a lot of other issues that the company has faced in the past few years, but it would take me an hour to go over everything.
Feel free to check out the blog for recent updates on merchandise. But I have sad news to report at this time -- word coming from Philebrity.com is that the Philadelphia store will be closing on September 30th, and I expect there will be other closings as well. I am in deep state of mourning right now. UPDATE: A commenter on the blog indicated that he visited an NYC location today, and was told that ALL locations would be closed by October 31st. This is a sad day indeed. :'(

This was the best info I found at the time. Hope it helps. http://www.reportlinker.com/ci02122/Men-s-Clothing.html http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/03/29/us-usa-retail-luxury-idUSBRE82S15R20120329
I just assumed this was the boutique's house brand. I've seen many house labels carried on Yoox over the years.
Just wondering if anyone has knowledge on the "Shirts & Ties" brand of suits/sportcoats on Yoox. Thinking about picking up one of the suits, but cannot find any information on the company (a name like that doesn't exactly make it easy for searching). Thanks! EDIT: Of course, within 5 minutes of posting, I just found what I believe to be the company behind the Yoox label - http://shirtsandties.it/ - what appears to be a small boutique in Italy. If anyone has purchased one...
JuneXmas@YOOX -- Free shipping through 6/29 at 9AM EST.
I have found that Daffy's often gets in a selection of Zegna trousers w/the Incotex shipments. So I believe it is that Inco produces for Zegna.
I used to sell a lot here on SF, but had to give that up due to time constraints of my current job. However, as some of you may know, I'm a bit obsessed w/the north east chain of stores called Daffy's, particularly their Italian merchandise. I've recently started poking around to see what wholesale prices are like on that kind of merchandise (the better stuff), and it got me thinking about starting a website retailing Italian closeouts -- think a curated version of...
