3FI Srl was born in Rome in 1965 thanks to the idea o f four guys that combined their individual experiences, as a tailor, in a company.
In those economic boom year, Erminio Ottone and his three fellows developed a rapid market in the "made in Italy" excellence dressing.
Big but not global, focusing on the hand made tradition more than the new world markets.
Just in 1989, with the new management, 3FI became a global player.. Nowadays, it is led by few italian share holder families. Even if the core business is still the men's clothing, classic wear, total look, due to the innovative and global view of the new owners, 3FI is now an holding present in many fields, joined by the common, strong, idea of the "Italian style".
Fodstuff, real estate, new technologies are now part of the business. The holding is focusing its interests around the world, strategically based in different places like Dubai, Singapore and Shanghai.
