Viewing for Gino DiGirolamo is Sunday

Gino DiGirolamo, who ran a tailoring business in the neighborhood since the early 1960s, died this past Friday. He was 82.

The viewing is Sunday from 2-8 p.m. at the Provenzano Lanza Funeral Home, 43 Second Ave. between Second Street and Third Street.

He was the proprietor of the Royal Tailor Shop, which was most recently housed on 11th Street between Avenue A and First Avenue.

Gino is survived by his son Vito.

A longtime customer has created a crowdfunding campaign "to raise funds to honor Gino with a donation in his name or potentially a plaque or marker in the neighborhood." Find details here.

Back in the early 90's I had a job interview and my only suit needed a bit of work, they called me and asked me to come a few days earlier!!! I needed some help and Gino made me look like a million bucks in a matter of hours!!! I wasn't always in of a tailor but when I did he was my guy!!! RIP Gino, a true gentlemen and class act!! You will be missed!!! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved ones.
