Felice “Phil” Ferrante, Saks Fifth Avenue’s master men’s tailor, died Oct. 15 after a long battle with cancer. He was 68.
“He was a master craftsman and a lovable guy,” said Stephen I. Sadove, chairman and chief executive officer of Saks Fifth Avenue. “The talent he had for hand-sewn suits, designing, cutting and making a garment fit, is a diminishing art form.”
