    B&S forums will never be the same without Mabitex! That's really too bad, great quality and obviously a deal via Daffy's. My guess is Daffy's will get smart and jack prices on all non-seconds Incotex they ever get....

    I don't think you're going to see that (i.e., jacked up prices). But if I had my way, you'd also be seeing PT01's, and a whole host of other Italian pants rather than racks full of Banana Republic rejects.

    Just a quick question on Daffy's tags: Do the red tags mean final price? Or is it possible for the price to be discounted lower?

    The red labels on the price tag only mean there's been a discount - you can always get further discounts if they're available. Something marked 'FINAL SALE', however, means that the item cannot be returned. Hope that helps.

    Thanks! That does help. I found some items I'm interested in, but I will hold off to see if they become discounted more.

    all the nice stuff from the new 44th Street store seems to be gone - they had an Isaia suit, some Valentini pants, etc from Tyrones on Long Island. Stuff was there 10 days ago, now all gone. Anyone know if Daffy's shuffles slow moving goods to other stores maybe?

    They often move stuff around if it's not selling, but I would be surprised if the Tyrone's merchandise went somewhere else. They often split that stuff up amongst other stores, but this fall, everything went to 44th & Bway store. If it did go somewhere else, you'll see it on the blog as I will be hitting up most of the NYC stores this weekend.

    the valentini pants at the 44th and broadway store were awesome.

    Women's outerwear is on sale, is Men's outerwear?

    Yeah there were a couple Isaia suits, 15 or so high end pants, and a few dozen shirts all from Tyrones (with the white hang tags) and now they all seem to be gone. Given that they were sitting there for months, my guess is they moved it to another store. I was waiting for them to mark some of the items down...

    Quick merchandise update -- additional samples of knitwear came in from Teodori this week, including items from Dunhill and Jil Sander -- cotton sweaters all under $40. The store down here also got in a small assortment of linen blazers from David Chu (made in Italy) for $69.99, w/original retail of between $850-$1000 - this stuff retails in Saks, though it looks like it came from the David Chu parent company, b/c I also saw some shirts from Lincs, the David Chu diffusion line sold in Dillards. The blazers will likely be gone soon, as they are quite nice, though they are cut a bit on the larger side.

    They got any of those PT101's? Sound like the successor to Mabitex. Let the Daffy's PT101 hype machine commence!

    I literally saw one item from Dunhill. Nice, but didn't think it was photo worthy. You'll be lucky if there are half a dozen Dunhill items spread across the entire chain - these are samples from a knitwear manufacturer (Teodori) that produces for a bunch of different labels.


    The one post where I mentioned that was a sort of "I wish" type thing. I don't believe you'll be seeing PT01's at Daffy's, unless they offer me a full-time job, which I'd gladly accept :)

    Semi-self-promotion, but if anyone out there wants to leave a comment on my most recent post on the blog, it'd be much appreciated. :) http://yellowbaggers.blogspot.com/
