The History

Xacus was founded in 1956 in San Vito di Leguzzano, by Alberto Xoccato, 
who was a visionary craftsman and member of one of Veneto’s oldest families. It was here that
 he embarked on a journey of style and entrepreneurial tradition: interpreting, with the knowledgeable hands of ten expert dress makers from the area, the noble men’s shirt-making art.

In the 1970s, Xacus inaugurated its first industrial laboratory. While it continued to preserve the product’s original sartorial characteristics, it now began the transformation from an artisan workshop into one of the region’s most rapidly growing fashion companies which resulted in the exponential and significant expansion of its distribution network by the end of the decade.

Following further growth and consolidation, in the 1980s the founder’s two sons, Giorgio and Paolo Xoccato joined Xacus. A second phase of rapid production and commercial growth began, and after achieving substantial success domestically in the Italian market, Xacus started to expand internationally - first to North America and then to other key markets throughout the world.

In order to meet the growing demands of the marketplace, Xacus completely revamped its production and logistics capabilities in the 1990s to accommodate over 50 “shop in shop” within some of its best Italian and foreign retail clients.

In 2016, Xacus celebrated its 60th birthday, as a world leader in the men’s shirt sector with a distinguished international presence. Remaining firmly rooted in its tailoring tradition, the company has retained its distinct product characteristics to create a brand legacy synonymous with unique style, exclusive details, premium materials and precision accuracy throughout each phase of development from the initial design concept to final production.
