Great find!

Which daffys was this and did they have more?

Gatsby has it right. If you dig there are some incredible finds at prices you'll never get on yoox, gilt, etc.

Daffy's also has a great kids' selection. Same thing, little known Italian brands that you can buy for pennies on the dollar if you know what you are looking for. I'm going to pick up a lot of kids stuff before they close as you just can't find the quality/price mix anywhere else.

Basically I'm ruined for shopping post Daffys....

I'm sorry to say that it was a "one off" (it's marked Sample).

It was at the West 57th St. location (between 8th/9th).

I second this sentiment.

I have a 6 year old niece - and I've bought Christmas and birthday presents for her (sometimes "overspending" on her), because you can get a child an entire wardrobe made in Italy for $600 - $1K...the price of one item from Gucci Kids.

Just a thought to leave readers of this thread with:

If you haven't ever been to Daffy's, it is not surprising that you "won't be sad" or "won't miss" Daffy's when it's gone.

Perhaps this thread is for people who either:

A) Want to comment on their experience with Daffy's

or

B) Want to ask questions (or learn about) Daffy's as it winds down, as most stores will be open (and fully stocked) until October 15th


There is a HUGE warehouse in Secaucus, NJ yet to be cleaned out!

Visited the Herald Sq location yesterday.

Not super appetizing selection. Not sure if it is due to this being the pit of the summer, or an indication of when store buyers had to stop buying.

A group of the shirts that have come in for fall are from the Inghirami group, only they are 15 or 20 years old -- well-made but with slightly outdated styling, esp with sport shirts.

Among the shoes was a table of Super Leon models dating from the same period.

It's rare to see such a quantity of such outdated stuff.

There were better selections of Jay Cole Man and Xagon, as well as some good knitwear but overall meh.

Hope another season of merch hits the stores before the final curtain.

I've twice scored Isaia suits at Daffy's for under $500. I've scored Fedeli knits. I will miss it. Especially considering the new pricing structure of many luxury wholesalers.

What is the quality of Xagon and Jay Cole Man?

Which is?

Xagon Man is hit or miss. The jackets are a mix of wool/poly or cotton/poly. The construction is (sometimes) a bit fashion forward.

I am a huge fan of their new motorcycle jackets.

I suggest trying their shirts and knits --- you'll need to be slim though.

As for Jey Cole Man: this season far surpasses anything in the past.

The construction is top notch (unlined jackets/blazers that you can roll up in a ball just as nicely as any Belvest jacket --- and it comes out wrinkle free).

With JCM the cut/fit is athletic (somewhat slim), but allows for freedom of movement.

In terms of JCM's fabrics ---- it runs the gamut. Some are all cotton or all wool, some are a mix of the two, and there are several pieces I noticed with a wool/poly blend.

Yes -- that is merchandise from Copen Group. They make, among other things, Pennesi and Royal Hem, and are contract manufacturers for lots of labels. Always nicely made stuff if you can get your hands on it. Suits are usually half-canvassed, and slim fit. Feel free to PM w/any particulars.

Yeah they are definitelty slim fit. I tried on a suit, and I could barely get my arms in the sleeves. I have a pair of pants from them (1 size up from what I normally wear) that actually fit really well after I had the waist brought in. They are half-lined to the knee.
