Quick Note

Quick note for those that have not been following the Twitter feed (!/yellowbaggers) --

Shoes are now rolling in from Italian shoe maker Boemos. The batch I saw on Wednesday were some really nice boat shoes made for an Italian department store named Glou, and I believe more of a selection will be arriving on trucks today and put out over the weekend. There were also more Tremp (made in Italy) shoes than I had seen the prior week, so there must have been a shipment I missed somewhere. Mostly driving mocs, but nicely made stuff and better than all of the other junk sitting on the shoe racks. (Oh, and still a few pairs of Florsheim by Duckie Brown mixed in with everything else).

(Update: 2/17/12): Will be doing a lot of Daffy's shopping this weekend, but wanted to update this post w/the great stuff that came in this week (not one bad thing I can say so far) -- suits and blazers from Copen Group (made in Italy) - look for a hang tag that says 'Copen Group' or one with a crest on it, or look for the vendor code that reads 'COPE' backwards on the Daffy's tag (see prior post as to how to read a Daffy's price tag) -- some really great stuff - look for labels marked De Curtis, Royal Hem, Pennesi and Marlane - some might not have labels inside the garments. More shoes from Boemos, mostly those marked GLOU, but there were a few others marked Boemos - I expect that the 34th St. store will get a nice selection of these as it has in prior years. A very small selection  of pants from Giab's (made in Italy) came in - some of the best pants they get, but you have to sift through the Banana Republic junk. And a large selection of items from Xagon Man (made in Italy) and for the first time, this is getting my full approval based on what I saw - decently constructed garments and smartly styled. And finally, a small selection of shirts from Milena SpA came in under the Carrel, Del Siena and B>More marks.
