Gionfriddo Fine Men's Clothing / Gionfriddo International
Gionfriddo's Fine Men's clothing was established in 1985 by Joseph Gionfriddo Sr. Joseph learned the art of tailoring in Italy and upon his arrival in the USA in 1955, brought his talents to several men's clothing stores; P&Q Clothing in New Britain and then Harry Israel's in Meriden. In 1969 Joseph Sr. started a women's clothing factory on Springdale Avenue in Meriden and in 1975, operated a second women's clothing factory on Franklin Avenue in Hartford.
Upon closing the manufacturing factories in 1985, Joe decided to utilize his tailoring expertise in his own clothing store where he offers a wide variety of services including a full line of custom tailored men's clothing, suits, sportcoats, overcoats and made to measure shirts. Also available is a full line of quality men's ready to wear clothing and a wide assortment of men's accessories. Expert professional alterations for men and women and tuxedo rentals are offered to complete the array of services available.
In 1992, Joseph Jr. expanded the facilities with the Gionfriddo International Wholesale branch of services importing "Made in Italy" quality men's clothing, sweaters, casual knit shirts, leisure wear and jeans. He was an invited guest of the Italian Trade Commission in 2009 at their trade exposition in Milan as recognition for furthering the "Made in Italy" clothing standard. In addition, he received and accepted a similar invitation from the Peruvian Trade Commission to visit their exposition in Lima early in 2010 and is adding some of their products to the clothing base he furnishes to upwards of 700 quality men's clothing stores across the U.S.
Joseph Jr. presents his wholesale line to buyers at clothing shows in New York City, Las Vegas and Florida several times a year, and now has sales reps covering most areas of the country.
