Suited to a T
Fabio explained that when he turned 13 his father gave him two options to roaming the streets with his friends: continuing his schooling or learning a trade. He apprenticed with a tailor for four years, earning knowledge and the occasional monetary tip from his mentor when his capabilities expanded. Lamentablemente, he says, he has had no luck recruiting his own apprentice to carry on the trade.
The first fitting (above right) was August 24. Second fitting was September 1. We picked up the finished suit today (left). ¡Muy elegante! And just in time for the wedding of favorite son Joey to adorable Lauren on September 25.
