Does Zegna produce for Incotex or is it the other way around? Just curious as to why EZ would be on the content label if they were Incotex. The Daffys price tag was discarded long ago. So far I've only worn the blue pair once. Received a number of compliments on them. The most important one coming from the Mrs!
I'll see if I can get a clear picture of the label and post it here.
If they weren't so casual, I'd have worn them to worn today. IT IS HOT IN NYC TODAY!!!!
I have found that Daffy's often gets in a selection of Zegna trousers w/the Incotex shipments. So I believe it is that Inco produces for Zegna.
Wasn't much at the Columbus Circle Daffy's, that I saw at least. Did grab a few Gitman ties for $9 each.
I saw nada in the Daffys here in NJ that I frequent.
Fall stuff coming in.
Shop it while you can.
Feel free to check out the blog for recent updates on merchandise. But I have sad news to report at this time -- word coming from Philebrity.com is that the Philadelphia store will be closing on September 30th, and I expect there will be other closings as well. I am in deep state of mourning right now.
UPDATE: A commenter on the blog indicated that he visited an NYC location today, and was told that ALL locations would be closed by October 31st. This is a sad day indeed. :'(
This is terrible news. Incotex at 34th st in sizes 32 and under
I'd be surprised if they can't work something out to keep the chain afloat. May be worth gathering more intel as these situations usually take some time...
According to the most recent report, they were pursuing either a sale or a liquidation.
I guess a buyer could not be found.
I always get a good laugh out of the name.
It was a good run and experience with the crazy cheap Incotex/Mabitex a few years back.
I don't understand how this happened. If you read this Crains piece from almost 2 years ago, they talk about the company's low debt situation.
How do they go from little leverage to enough leverage to put them under in less than 2 years? As far as I can see the only expansion was that 44th Street Times Square store? Maybe others know more about their financials but it doesn't sound like they are a debt bloated company that got stuck in lean years...
the end of an ERA. Wow... that sucks. Well, now I don't miss Philly anymore.
There have been two store openings in the last few years -- one in Times Square, another in the Bronx at co-op city. The thing is they added those two stores, and revenue stayed the same, but of course, expenses went up. There are a lot of additional problems and a lot of other issues that the company has faced in the past few years, but it would take me an hour to go over everything.
To be honest...we just need to find out where all the Incotex will be going from now on. Anyone have any clues.
