I am a son of a pattern maker, designer, made in NYC supporter, True Believer, & founder of Bridge & Boro.

My Story

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.
