Joseph Genuardi is the youngest of only a few genuine master tailors practicing in the United States of America. He specializes in multiple silhouette styles stemming from the classic American expression with a focus on smart conservative- a fitted and comfortable cut with soft construction that is elegant, timeless, and international.
After graduating with honors from Carnegie Mellon University, he was classically trained for 5 years as apprentice to the late, internationally lauded master tailor, Joseph Centofanti in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. While with Centofanti, he undertook every facet of the trade from hand sewing to fitting, pressing, pattern drafting and cutting. He progressed into position of tailor, then cutter, fitter, and manager while at Centofanti.
In 2011, Joseph moved to New York to become Head Tailor at one of the largest, and most highly esteemed, made-to-measure clothing makers in the world, Martin Greenfield Clothiers. Here, he managed Greenfield's custom made division from 2011 until 2016, leading customers through the entire custom process starting with cloth selection and ending with delivery and selection of their next suit. At Martin Greenfield, Joseph was tailor to President Barack Obama, former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg, and numerous TV and film actors including Robert De Niro, Johnny Depp, James Spader, and Steve Buscemi as well as many star athletes.
In spring of 2016, Joseph decided to leave the Martin Greenfield factory system to pursue custom tailoring in its purest form. This leads us to today.
He has been featured on National Public Radio, the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Times Herald, and various other print and web publications. He is also featured in the documentary film Men of the Cloth- A Documentary of Italian Master Tailors.
He resides in Hoboken, NJ with his wife, Kelly, and two young sons / apprentices, Chayton and Jude.
