Thomas Bonomo


Men's apparel is in Tom's blood. Tom's father, an owner of a men's specialty store for over 35 years, instilled the pillars of tried-and-true quality and functional design within Tom. While working for Nordstrom, Tom realized he had a flair for sales and was recruited by the Old Glory brand to market their sweaters to retailers. During his time there, Tom launched the juniors and boy's collection.  By 1997, Tom founded and launched the junior apparel company Six Sweaters.  Today, Tom brings an entrepreneurial spirit and unique energy to Thomas Dean & Co., where he manages design, merchandising, sales, and marketing for the company.
