Carmelo Bari is my dad and he is a pattern maker from Italy. He immigrated to New York in 1970, leaving behind his entire family in search of opportunity and the ‘American Dream’. His story was the inspiration for starting Bridge & Boro. I wanted to carry on the craft my dad has spent a lifetime perfecting and start something that we can hopefully pass on to future generations. We focus on fit and tailored details that showcase the quality of the materials we use and the craftsmanship of local artisans. We are an authentic New York brand and we’re committed to bringing manufacturing back to the city where it all started for our family over 50 years ago.
Our goal is to create quality garments that will stay in your wardrobe season after season. Over the years we’ve created a lot of memories in our Bridge & Boro clothes. It’s time to create yours. Welcome to the Family.

Our 3 principles:
Fit – We focus on creating great fitting garments through Carmelo’s 50 years experience as a tailor and pattern maker.
Fabrics – We only use the best quality denim and fabrics and we tell you exactly which mill we source them from. Our mill partners are located in the USA, Italy, and Japan.
Family – We are a family company inspired by my dad’s career as a successful pattern maker in New York City. From the cousins to the aunts to the Nonni, our family has supported Bridge & Boro from the beginning. Our goal is to extend that sense of family to every Bridge & Boro client by offering fair pricing directly through our website and very select retailers.
