Thomas Decina – Groomsman

The brains to Nick’s brawn. The two had a mutually beneficial relationship when they met freshman year at Manhattan College. Tom coached Nick through the rigorous chemical engineering program, while Nick schooled Tom on style and finesse. We’re happy to report that Tom now owns more pullovers than just his green Manhattan College sweatshirt.
