Camicissima, an Italian shirtmaker with 100 stores in Italy, is heading to the U.S.
The privately held company, which was founded in Palermo, Italy, in 1931, has signed a 10-year lease for a New York unit at 509 Madison Avenue on the southeast corner of 53rd Street. The 1,677-square-foot, two-level store is slated to open on Black Friday, according to Fabio Candido, president and grandson of the founder, who owns the business with his brother Sergio. The ultimate goal in the U.S., Candido said, is to “surpass the number of Italian stores.”
