I saw some stuff by Quinessence. It looked fairly decent. The David Chu at 70, is a great buy. I picked up two sport coats several months ago.

thanks!

All the stores got in a big load of the shirts. The problem is that the warehouse is now shipping out merchandise faster than it can be put out in the stores b/c of space constraints. So each of the stores will have a good selection, but they have about 3-5x's what's out on the floor sitting in the stock room, simply because there is nowhere to put it right now. Make sure you check the folded shirts area --- a number of the stores, at least in Jersey, are putting them out folded up in the plastic b/c there is no room on the racks.

+1: I have no idea how they are going to move all this merchandise before the end of October.

That's the plan. The 34th Street/Herald Square location will be the last to go. It is considered the flagship.

I would imagine that the last to go would be some of the locations in NJ that they own rather than lease -- Elizabeth, Secaucus, etc.

You could be right. I just asked some SAs at the Herald Square Daffy's to confirm what I read here and they said that their store would be the last. But SAs probably don't know that for sure.

checked the store near port authority, herald square and union square. not many mastai shirts. union square had the most but they were in casual fabrics and odd designs.

i was looking for work appropriate fabrics and patterns.

I think that a young lady shopping for her husband and I cleaned out the Union Square store of the more classic designs and fabrics. The manager there told me they had more in the back, as did Herald Square. Make friends with someone there and ask if they have more stock in the back in your size that you can see.

It's hit or miss with Daffy's staff, though. They can be super friendly or they can be super unfriendly...

i asked at both locations and both staff members said nothing more in the back frown.gif

when did you go?

I was there last Friday afternoon. I only bought 40s, and it looked like the majority in Union Sq were 40s. In Herald Sq, there were a lot of sizes. Actually, a greater mix. But also a lot of the more flashy, darkly colored styles. I bought more in Union Sq.

Someone posted earlier that they were getting 10,000 shirts in. Kudos to Daffy's if they sold 10K shirts in one weekend. Maybe you can check the 57th East and Grand Central stores.

How good is the David Chu, Pennesi, De Curtis, and Royal Hem stuff? The DC are listed a $800+.

I found them all to be ok, nothing great or terrible.

David Chu is very high quality. Cannot speak to the other stuff.
