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.
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.
Poszetka and a Spanish shoe manufacturer, Crownhill, collaborated to make The Katowice: split-toe derby in black pebble grain leather. Interesting combination of formal colour and informal style makes this model a very nice addition to many a shoe aficionado’s collection.
Other than that, Poszetka introduced new merino wool polo jumpers. A very nice, rather large collar and delicate material makes them great for an only top layer in an informal outfit.
One of the sponsors this month – Luxire.com, an internet MTM, about which you can read on this very blog here and here. This company based in Bangalore, India provides reasonably priced and high-quality product, with a lot of handwork involved, and virtually limitless customization options. The company is also known for their excellent customer service.
They’ve recently revamped their website again, and the new one is clean and nice. The new customization tool allowing you to decide on the details of the order is finally functional – and it’s pretty awesome. The number of available options trumps any other online MTM I’ve seen, and allows for personalization of even very small details.
Luxire has a huge selection of linen and cotton-linen fabrics for shirts – not just plain ones, but also striped and checked, including many Albini linens. It’s a fantastic choice for the hot weather, and touches like shirred sleeve head or shirring at the cuff attachment can make the shirt look good and interesting even if you’re not wearing a jacket.
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.
There’s a new Saphir product for cleaning leather, namely Cleaning Lotion. It’s stronger than Renovateur creme, but not as strong as (and also devoid of the irritating smell of) Reno’Mat. There are many good opinions about it, and I believe it’ll prove useful in periodic deep cleaning of one’s shoes.
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.
There are new linen trousers made of linen from a British producer, Brisbane Moss. The new colours – including army green, cocoa and light turquoise – are beautiful and interesting. I especially like the green and cocoa. Of course you can still order any of the previously available colours, so there’s a lot to choose from – and a lot to wear during inevitable heat waves!
