Joe and Tony Ghamo established J T GHAMO in 1986 as a mens-clothing store, providing their clientele clothing of Old World tailoring with sophistication and service that would make their late Grandfather proud. After attending a relative's wedding, they noticed the quality of tuxedos the men were wearing, and to say the least, the brothers were not impressed.
In 1989, Joe was asked to be a groomsman at a friend's wedding. This friend asked if they could provide the tuxedos. Joe had very little knowledge in the formal wear rental business, Tony remembered a salesman representing a tuxedo company had called just a few weeks earlier--it was at that moment that J. T. GHAMO-THE TUXEDO PLACE was born. In the early days, a wholesaler was used for their formal wear department, where everything was ordered through a catalog, but with late deliveries and poor quality, the Ghamos began purchasing more of their own inventory. In 1992, a local formal wear store was for sale in Hartford's West End. With the retail climate at an all time low since the Depression, the Ghamos strongly considered the purchase; months later, they closed their mens-clothing store in New Britain and moved their business to Hartford.
Committed to thrive in their new establishment, they began a strong marketing plan, purchasing tuxedos of better designers and quality to create a more upscale climate. In 1995, after a few years of prosperity, the building in which the formal wear store was located caught fire and 95% of the inventory was lost. Once again the Ghamos suffered another setback. With limited insurance and an eight-month delay in the re-opening, the store opened its doors in late April of 1996. It was a new attitude and direction that the brothers took this time, not only to be the best but also to rival the biggest in the industry.
Today, J.T. GHAMO-THE TUXEDO PLACE is a leader in the men's formal wear business in central Connecticut. Dedicated to service, quality and style, J.T. is poised for bigger and better endeavors. With the new millennium upon us, the time is now for further growth. The Ghamos plan to include a new state of the art laundry and distribution center to better facilitate their stores. In addition, more retail outlets will be added in the near future. With a 90-day intensive training program that includes garment design, fabric content, proper fitting and basic tailoring, their employee training is among the best in the industry. Every one on their staff is trained to make any last minute alteration on tuxedos.
J.T. GHAMO-THE TUXEDO PLACE is not creating new markets, supplementing them by catering to customers needs and wants, and by being true to their mission of Quality, Service and S
