Today’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in Ohio: Romualdo. Located in Madeira, the store was founded by Romualdo Pelle in 1968 as a small, Italian tailoring shop. During thirty years of ownership, the “Master Tailor” serviced many distinguished clients—including Neil Armstrong. In 1999, Pelle sold his shop to Trevor and Wendy Furbay who later transformed the store in to a full service haberdashery. Pelle became close friends with Trevor and stayed on in a mentor role. Romualdo has received local coverage in Cincinnati publications and national coverage in The Wall Street Journal online.
