Trump Inks Deal For Italian Suitmaker Brioni To Open In His Washington Hotel

by MR Magazine Staff

There’s one thing Barack Obama and Donald Trump have in common: An affinity for hand-sewn suits from Italian menswear specialist Brioni. Come September, both men will be able to shell out $6,000 or more for the suits in a shop on Pennsylvania Avenue, where Trump plans to open Brioni’s first Washington location in his $200 million luxury hotel at the Old Post Office. The presidential candidate’s son, Donald Trump Jr., executive vice president of development and acquisitions for his real estate company, announced the deal in a press release. “Brioni is an iconic luxury brand with a very rich history and we are thrilled that they have chosen to open their first location in Washington D.C. at Trump International,” Trump Jr. said. “When we open our doors in September, this will be the finest luxury hotel in the country and we are very pleased to be bringing guests and visitors the ultimate shopping experience with Brioni.” Read more at The Washington Post.
