    Well, Mabitex website is still up, so not sure if that's true. However, if what you say is true, they've gone under, that's kinda sad. I have more than a few pairs that are really awesome made with great fabrics and fit me really well.

    I guess if someone speaks Italian perhaps they can contact Mabitex. Email addresses are listed on their website. http://www.mabitex.com/

    Also, Mabitex is being sold for quite inexpensive on Yoox. (60-130 usd)

    Mabitex not an option for Yoox USA.

    This is quite sad if true. The deals at Daffy's were phenomenal. OTOH -- now I don't feel so bad about buying so many!

    Lol was because I am quite surprised that they could just vanish like that. One day, yes Mabitex, the next, no Mabitex.

    guy321 or anyone - what happens with the daffys merch that never gets sold that gets removed from the stores once the seasons end? is there a daffys warehouse or daffys outlet somewhere? does the stuff get burned?

    Honestly, no idea. I know that they usually pick one store where all the remainders get sent and are marked down very significantly. The stuff that doesn't sell at all after that, my guess would be that it is donated somewhere. I know that Ross Dress for Less has a policy of donating items that don't get sold, as stores like this are kind of a last resort for merchandise.

    You're going to push them in the direction of selling Incotexes for $100+!!!

    Usually 34th St. is the consolidation store.. Last season, Philly got a huge amount of consolidation from the New York stores, as they have extra space that is not normally used. After that, what was left over was sent to Paramus, NJ. So it may vary by season, but 34th St. is probably a good bet if you're looking for some fall/winter markdowns.

    I went to 34th street last week, it is a disaster, no good deals and nothing of any decent quality. I must say I really hate the daffys experience. As many have said, you walk in excited, see all this junk lying everywhere and just leave.
