BNIB pair of staple Alden Shell Cordovan loafers. Comes with box and bags. Right shoe appears to have been tried on a time or two as there are a few creases in the leather. These retail for $599 plus tax. I ship USPS priority within 24 hours of paypal payment. Please pm with any questions...
Daffy's may need to get us online grief counselors...
Does anyone know how these liquidators do things in the last week? Supposedly stores are closing next Saturday 9/15 and as things stand markdowns are 40-60%. Just wondering if they get to 75-90% type levels. May be worth on last scavenge...
hit Secaucus and Elizabeth, both had 9 days left signs. Totally nuked, a few odds and ends of interest but don't hold your breath...
surprised this isn't getting more posts. Very interesting read for people who aren't too familiar with the business end of suit making. As with so many things the true craftsmen are on the fringes struggling to get by while the knock-off kings and mass producers are doing big business.

I have no idea where else to find this stuff. The problem with online sites is the sizing varies greatly on these shirts. I wear size 40 and find that only about 1 in every 3 or 4 I try on fits.

Robert Redd is having a 24 hour flash sale. Good deal if you are 10D and want alden tassel loafers: http://www.robertredd.com/All-Accessories/Alden-Black-Leather-Tassle.asp The stock is spotty, but there are a few other shoes and lots of shirts, which is their focus.
there are still some shirts from SAIT group around if you dig through the racks and don't forget to check the shelves with shirts still in plastic wrap. Often there are more on those shelves. Definitely try the shirts on as they run skinny and I find that size 40 has a pretty wide variety of cuts. Often times they're too narrow across the shoulders and tight across the chest for me. That said, they're a huge value at 30 if you they fit. Maybe we'll luck out and there...
The mastai/saitt group shirts are pretty picked over at the majority of the Daffys. Maybe they'll put more out, but big drop in available inventory last week versus today... Still a lot of those David Chu jackets which are a good deal if you can size right...
