Gammarelli Clothiers Opens Protestant Shop In Manhattan
Passion for Christian Clothes
Brings New Ecclesiastical Endeavor
by Winsip Custer CPW News Service
John P. Gammarelli of Manhattan, New York, has just opened Gammarelli's Sartoria Per Ecclesiastici. "Unlike the clothier of Roman Catholic Bishops, Arch Bishops, Cardinals and Popes, we clothe the discriminating Protestant pastors, preachers and other clergymen and now women," said Gammarelli. "The Italian men's business suit is the classic statement of professionalism, passion for excellence and graceful elegance that is found in our other familiar designs," said Bernardo Z. Vallone, Gammarelli's manager. When asked about the new 2011 designs, Vallone was quick to say that the all cashmere John Knox, Peter Waldo and Billy Graham suits were leading this year's sales.
"Next year we'll be adding the Wesley, Wycliffe and Hus, but we also anticipate that the traditional double-breasted gray worsted Luther with Zwingli blood red necktie on buttoned down Oxford dress shirt will also be in high demand. Custom tailored Gammarelli's start at $4700," said Vallone. The women's versions start at $17,500.
