HERITAGE

From a small town near Turin, the tailor and his family work closely together to keep their traditions alive and to bring you the highest quality tailoring. The tailor’s mother has run her own tailoring business for two decades, as well as working alongside her son. It is not only the AA brand whom she has produced stunning pieces for but other well-known brands as well.

“Creating clothes for Valentino and Ungaro, we really had a lot of satisfaction. Then, the clothes were sewn by hand, as the tailors of the older generation used this technique.”

This level of expertise and emotion is what makes an AA jacket inherently unique and a special piece of art. Applying techniques from years of Italian tailoring, combined with the modern requirements for high performance, to create timeless apparel for equestrian sport.

“Where the spirit does not work with the hands, there is no art.”
