Cristiano Di Thiene SPA company is the "Aeronautica Militare" brand's licensee.
After World War II, Cristiano Sperotto established his first artisan tailor's shop in Thiene, in the province of Vicenza.
In 1960, he specialised in the manufacturing of luxury leather clothing for men and women and the brand of the same name expanded on national and international markets.
In 1979, after his sons Paolo and Armando Pio joined the company, the latter became an S.p.A. (i.e. Ltd. company)
In 2004, the General Staff of the Italian Air Force signed a multi-annual agreement with the company for the marketing of clothing and accessories carrying the emblems and logos of the Air Force and Frecce Tricolori.
Since then, the company has created various product lines appreciated by a wide range of airplane, aerobatics and Italian lifestyle enthusiasts.
A style that resonates. Our history starts at a distance. It has a past tied to the craft of woven leather and further evolved when the Italian Air Force gave us permission to use its decorations, badges and banners to create a line of clothing and accessories that are both authentic and original. A strong reminder to the world of military aviation; we were able to capture the true flight fans, as well as those in search of a distinctive style, strong identity, without compromising on quality. Air Force-Private Collection carries the colors of Italy in the world market leader making a mark nationally and internationally unique and original.
