The doors to Granata??s tell a story before you even walk inside. As you look through the front window, you see what almost looks like a museum, walls adorned with memorabilia, from plaques and photos, to trophies proudly displayed on the mantel of a quaint fireplace, down to the personal collection of antique cameras tucked high up on a shelf. It??s obvious that there are many stories to be told behind these doors, and no doubt a very special person??s heart and livelihood within these walls.

And how true this is. Joseph Granata was born and raised in Southern Italy, the son of parents who had no interest in tailoring. However Joseph was a precocious child at times, and one day his parents told him, it??s time to go to work so you can start to make a good life for yourself. He was 9 years old. So he began working half of his time, and schooling the other half, and before he knew it, he had quickly risen to the ranks as one of the most talented and respected tailors in his industry. After immigrating to the US, and working for many years in Chicago, for one of the nation??s top manufacturers, Joseph eventually ended up in Encinitas, a town he loves very much, and obviously the feelings are reciprocal. The endless collages of photos, awards, medals, tastefully intertwined with bobbins, sewing machines, irons, and the ever so perfect line up of completed men??s suits (which by the way are Joseph??s favorite pieces to tailor), could not display a more perfect story of the life Joseph has lived and continues to create for himself. As customers walk in they are greeted with a charming smile, a friendly handshake, and the ever so precocious laughter of a little boy whose life calling came to him many years ago, and has never faded. Whether it is custom tailoring for men, or alterations for men and women, master tailor Joseph Granata is at your service.

Granata is open Wednesday through Saturday, 9:30 to 5.
