Tresanti refers to the ‘Three Saints’; three brothers born in the third century in the town of Vaste, in the province of Lecce located in south-eastern Italy. According to the myth, the three brothers, to be honest, were quite the Italian bad boys; somewhat vain, hot-tempered and born to tempt women. Eventually the boys, part of a noble Christian family, were arrested by Roman soldiers and taken to Rome where the Imperial Court tried to make them denounce their faith. they were beaten and tortured, trying to make them worship the pagan gods, but they remained steadfast.
On May 10th in the year 253, the Brothers were martyred to death in Lentini and received the palm and crown of martyrdom. Since the 1500s, Italians all over the world are having a ‘grand Festa’ each May 10th and in early September in honour of the Three Saints to celebrate the ultimate offer the brothers made whilst staying true to their own values. A story of three men that kept true to themselves, bad boys during their lives, but were proclaimed Saints in present day.
Women never fall for the guy that’s always honest, always polite, always understanding; in short the type of guy their mother would like them to date. It’s the petty vices that make a man interesting, and it’s the ‘not pretending to be someone else’ that makes a man irresistible. TRESANTI believes there’s a bit of a sinner in every man and there’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, it makes the world a more interesting place. TRESANTI encourages men to stay true to their nature in being just a little vain, a little hot-tempered and a natural tempter. Let nobody tell you you shouldn’t. Goody-two-shoes can go to hell, as far as TRESANTI is concerned. That’s why they put a little bit of sin in every piece of clothing. For the real man that embraces his own small vices, because he knows they are what sets him apart from all the others. To know them, to cherish them, even to express them.
