When I got to Atlanta from Chicago it was mandatory for me to have an Italian tailor. I actually interviewed tailors.(funny) For 30 years Alfredo was my go to guy. His help and expertise always made me look good. I'll miss him sitting at the end of the bar at the restaurant. He was a fine man and a good friend. We will miss him always.
