The Saitt Group attains to the ultimate status of leader in the luxury shirt business in 1997, when it purchases the historical brand Truzzi, a shirt factory established in 1890 in Milan by Luigia Truzzi. Truzzi shirts are famous all over the world, as the many celebrities who have worn them clearly shows, and have been a landmark for over a century in Milan among customers who will only settle for the best.
The brand made history with the flawless collar and cut of its shirts crafted by Master Ferruccio Ballini, who for decades headed the Company’s tailoring. It’s history begins in 1924: Ferruccio Ballini, then 21 years old, purchases the Truzzi shirt factory in Via Broletto. At the corner of the street, in his small lab, the skilled tailor begins to express his talent and to rise in stature, the familiar large scissors in his hands and personally designing the shirts and cutting out the fabric compositions.
When in 1950, by now an accomplished tailor in high demand, he decides to move to Corso Matteotti, he obstinately chooses not to change the brand’s name and its identity.
The tailor’s shop traditional method does not change, a fact that in time will spell its success. The boutique again relocates in 1997 to Via Sant’Eufemia and is purchased by Saitt. One can still sense the atmosphere typical of Ferruccio Ballini’s time at the Show Room Truzzi in Via Sant’Eufemia in Milan.
Truzzi is now also manufactured on large scale, employing top-range manufacturing technology combined with a careful selection of only the finest fabrics. Saitt distributes this line of shirts only to the very best stores, whose clientele are men always searching for a unique and personal product.
