Oscalito: a name that seems exotic, but is simply an Italian acronym. The name broken down instantly reveals indications of its origin: OsCaLiTo, Osvaldo - Casalini - Nicolino (Lino) - Torino. These are the names and the places that have formed the history of the brand born in 1936. The essence of Oscalito shows in those four syllables and in the Gino Boccasile style silhouette that tell the tale of a family, a city and a great passion.
It was in the 1930s when the two Casalini brothers, Osvaldo and Nicolino, became entrepreneurs. The city of Turin had just been appointed the capital of fashion. The Casalini brothers acquired a secondhand Schubert & Saltzer circular knitting machine and purchased only the highest quality natural fibers. They began to produce beautiful knitted circular fabrics in wool and cotton for seamless underwear, focusing on special details. During the Second World War, Elsa, Nicolino's young wife, dismantled the machines and hid them in a barn in the countryside to protect them from the bombings; her decision-making and promptness proved to be a great advantage when she entered the company after the war and followed the designs and production for over 50 years. Oscalito continues to be family owned and operated.
