There’s no native advertising on All Tied Up, no promotional material pretending to be real content, no paid reviews. Once a month I publish a post thanking this blog’s sponsors for making it possible to keep every other post on this blog native advertisement free.
This month, Sartolane joined the blog’s sponsors. It’s a brand that makes high-quality leather goods in a small Polish workshop, experienced in working with many European and worldwide luxury brands. Sartolane uses the same materials as those renown brands – top-grain italian leathers, top-shelf buckles and hardware, or Raccagni zippers.
Among the things Sartolane offers, you can find bags, wallets, portfolios and belts. What’s new this time, is an Easy Access wallet. The wallet has two card compartments – one is secured by an RFID blocking material, and prevents accessing the cards you put there; the other can be used to pay with your card without opening the wallet.
I’ve had a pleasure of testing the prototype, and I must say it’s a very comfortable solution. And the wallet is still very small, so it fits the trousers or a jacket pocket with no problems.
Multirenowacja offers the highest quality cosmetics for taking care and renovating shoes, accessories and leather and textile upholstery. They sell, among others, products by Saphir and Tarrago, and the sheer quantity of stuff they have may make you dizzy.
Among things useful particularly during autumn and winter – Nano Protector spray. It’s a universal formula to protect various kinds of textiles and leather from water. I use it especially on my suede shoes. Nano Protector is one of the reasons I think suede shoes are one of the most hassle-free things you can own.
Benevento is a company making trousers. They have over 20 years of experience in this area, and they utilize it well: they make very good, both quality- and design-wise, product, mostly using British fabrics.
While ordering, you can ask for custom changes – both when it comes to measurements, and details. Side tabs, button fly, pleats. Two basic fit types (regular and slim), variety of sizes (both waist and inseam), and possibility of custom modifications makes it possible to get a very well-fitting pair of trousers for various body types. A long awaited configuration tool is now being tested, and feedback from selected customers is collected, to make the tool fit the customers’ need as well as possible. I think that reflects the philosophy of this blog as well – it’s better to wait a bit more and get a great product or service, rather than get something subpar immediately.
Vitale Barberis Canonico racing green flannel is back in stock. If you already have a grey pair, or are looking for something different, it’s definitely worth it. Especially that the colour is dark, and stands out in a nice, subtle way.
Among many stylish fellows, corduroys are making a bit of a comeback. Benevento has a wide selection, and it’s good to have at least one pair for the colder half of the year, I think.
Last but not least, a long-time sponsor of the blog, Poszetka.com – a brand that selles beautiful and high-quality accessories. Their products are usually in limited supply, and are made in Poland by hand using mostly Italian and British fabrics.
The brand also continues to delve deeper into classic, well-designed menswear, and this time they have Merino wool roll-neck jumpers. I like this kind of knitwear a lot, it works well with tailoring. Poszetka carries them in gray and beige.
