Lots of Odds 'n Ends

Here's the rundown from the prior week - again, lots of little bits of random stuff --

The one major supply of merchandise that came in this week was from Space 2000 SpA, makers of Bomb Boogie, Censured, and a few other labels, including a new one which I noticed this year, Fred Mello. Space 2000 is an Italian company, but all of the items are made abroad. Still, decent quality stuff, along the lines of John Barritt, or thereabouts. The majority of what came in was in the coats section -- puffer jackets, and other casual coats, as well as an assortment of leather jackets. Some stores also got in knits and a few other random items -- I managed to head up to visit some NJ stores this weekend, and took in 4 additional locations.

As for the other nonsense, here's the rundown, though probably not a complete list:

- A new assortment of ties - Kenneth Cole, Geoffrey Beene, Penguin and Bloomingdales Men's Store. All appear to be from the same manufacturer. Ties also came into Philly from a different supplier under the name BelVetro - these were pretty awful. As a whole, I'd say to stay away from this stuff. Altea (made in Italy) ties are all on sale, and there are decent supplies of Moschino and Ferre ties in each store, so I'd stick with those any day of the week over this other stuff.

- Wheeled duffel bags from Beverly Hills Polo Club

- An assortment of hats including items marked London Fog and Bailey

- More winter accessories - Gloves and scarves from American Eagle (yes, the store in the mall); Scarves from Amicale (cashmere) - $35.99; Scarves from Elgin (made in Scotland);

- Cufflinks - Ben Sherman and Joseph Abboud

- Wool coats from Cole Haan (only saw these in Philly) - leathers came in a few weeks ago

- And as a side note -- new markdowns:

All Altea (made in Italy) ties are now marked down, approx. $12.49 each; and all shirts from Sait/Mastai Feretti (made in Italy) have been marked down as well. Select items from other labels, including Patrizia Pepe were marked down as well. If you're looking for dirt cheap items, the Paramus, NJ store has the remainder of the Spring merchandise, and they're desperately trying to get rid of it -- lots of PF Flyers in large sizes, $5 and under, 2-Xist underwear dirt cheap as well. Also lots of shorts/pants, though the selection is better in larger sizes -- all insanely cheap. Don't know how much longer that stuff is going to stick around there.
