Tino Tudisco

by Jeremy Charles


Tino Tudisco does tailoring and alteration in his shop in the Sinclair Building on Bartlett Square in downtown Tulsa. A native of Basilicata, Italy, who began working with cloth at age 7, Tudisco tailored clothes in Milan, Montreal, and New York before coming to Tulsa. His plan is to retire this year, at age 82, and spend more time watching Italian football on satellite TV and traveling.
