    I've decided to close up shop on the B&S forum for a bit, but wanted to share with everyone a blog I started a few months ago. http://yellowbaggers.blogspot.com

    It's basically a rundown of what merchandise Daffy's gets in each week, which stores are carrying the stuff, and which stores you should visit and those you should avoid. I'll admit I'm slightly obsessed with the chain, and most SF'ers will probably think I'm a bit nuts for writing the blog in the first place. But I wanted to share with everyone the kind of merchandise that's available for the insanely low prices which can be found at Daffy's. And I'm sure anyone that's interested can have other SF members pick up some stuff for them via the B&S forum.

    Apologies for the poor grammar, and the low-rent design -- I don't have lots of time to invest in the blog, but I do enjoy it. Feel free to let me know what you'd like to see on there.

    Someone from the actual store should do this...

    Would take like 1 hr a week at the most... Obviously won't happen...but one can wish.

    O.P. know anything about the brand A. Basile? I picked up a couple of linen shirts that seem fairly nice, but would like to know any additional info you might have.

    I believe they're made by Mastai Feretti. If you look at the hang tag, it's the same as those you'll see on all the shirts marked Mastai Feretti, Brual, Jeff Kerry, Covent Garden, Cleveland, Bonser, Agho, etc...

    Truzzi has the same parent company as most or all of the others but a higher quality of make. The corp parent is shirtmaker SAITT

    Yes...but in every Daffy's I've visited over the years (and believe me, it's a very high number), I've seen only 1 single shirt actually marked Truzzi; so while Mastai Ferreti may be owned by Truzzi, I must point out that you'd have a better chance winning the lottery than actually finding a Truzzi-branded shirt at Daffy's.

    Thanks--that is what I suspected. Nice summer shirts. Nothing really special, but similar to some Mastai shirts I have.

    SAITT/Mastai Feretti owns Truzzi, not the other way around. Truzzi was the historic label they bought more recently. SAITT itself is only about 20 years old.

    You have to realize that the Truzzi & Inco floods may have been unusual or unique events for Daffy's.

    The Daffy's deal with Euro manufacturers for unsold stock or overrruns left them in prime position to snap up the higher end stuff when the market froze a couple of years ago.

    Now either global markets are better, or manufacturers are more cautious, or both.

    I know there are boatloads of Mabitex kicking around at Daffy's but are there any Incotex anymore? I can't seem to find them where I look. Have they disappeared entirely?

    I haven't seen any Incotex yet this season. Last season, all they got were a few pairs of cottons, mostly in pretty ugly colors (teal was the majority) - but I believe it was a bit later on. The only major dress pants shipment I've seen recently is Bernard Zins, and that only went to the 40th & Madison store from what I can tell.

    Just thought this deserved a bump --- one of the Daffy's stores I visited today got in a whole load of suits from a brand called Ortenzi. Apparently they produce for a lot of well-known labels, as I saw a suit from Paul Smith, and a blazer from Dirk Bikkimbergs. This was the Elizabeth, NJ store; unsure what, if any, NYC stores received them as well.
