It may be the 1st time in history a clothing store bought a full-age ad to honor a tailor.
Today’s Westport News features a tribute to Domenic Condeleo. He’s celebrating 50 years as a tailor at Mitchells of Westport — and the Mitchell family wants the world to know how proud they are of him.
Domenic now oversees a staff of 23. He personally fits America’s top executives — some of whom refuse to see anyone else, the ad says.
“Mitchells would not be as successful as it is today without Domenic,” notes Bill Mitchell.
“Not only is he an incredible tailor, he also is a top-notch manager, and a great salesperson. His personality makes people gravitate towards him. He’s a star.”
This is not the 1st time Mitchells has honored Domenic. Back in 1994 — when he’d been with the family for “only” 34 years — the US hosted soccer’s World Cup. Bill and his brother Jack flew Domenic around the country, to watch his beloved Italian team play.
Tomorrow (Saturday, April 24), Mitchell’s invites Domenic’s many customers and friends to toast his half-century of service. The store serves prosecco and antipasto from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. All are welcome.
And while you’re there thanking Domenic, thank Bill and Jack for their very classy thanks too!
