Botnay 500 was a brand name owned by the Botany 500 Group of New York. Their men's suits and sport coats were manufactured in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania by Daroff and Sons, who were contracted by Botany Mills to produce products and later bought the firm outright. Daroff and Sons and the Botany 500 Group went bankrupt in August 1973. When Daroff finally shut their doors in December, Cohen and Sons bought the Botany 500 name and assets. The Botany and Cohen and Sons operations ceased production in 1986. Manufacturing of the Botany 500 name was outsourced to foreign countries.
