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.
Dignito sells accessories – ties made in Como, Italy, and pocket squares crafted from great fabrics and in classic designs. You can get classic printed silk ties there, as well as grenadine and knits. Additionally they offer scarves, bow ties, cufflinks or braces.
Dignito is also a tailoring atelier. They do bespoke tailoring, and they use natural canvas intelinings, no fusible; the garments are cut and finished by hand. It goes without saying that bespoke means the pattern is created for each customer from scratch. The atelier also offers MTM tailoring – a little less pricey and faster. What’s interesting, is that their tailoring is available for both male and female clients.
Dignito offers very nice and classic pocket squares – in silk, wool and linen. Elegant and simple designs will work great both with a suit and a casual jacket.
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.
It’s getting warmer, so it’s a good time to have a look at their lighter trousers. I like their trousers in Vitale Barberis Canonico Super 110-120s wool. They work nicely when it’s not summer yet, but you start feeling the weight of heavier cords or flannels on you.
Patine.pl begun by selling shoes by a Spanish brand Yanko. Recently they’ve widened their range and so now you can also choose from shoes by a fresh Mallorcan brand, TLB, as well as Patine’s own shoes made on lasts designed by a Polish master shoemaker, Tadeusz Januszkiewicz.
Recently they started branching out into accessories, which includes not just belts, but also socks or ties. A very good choice to start with is silk grenadine – perhaps the most universal when it comes to formality. If I were to choose just one tie to wear for the rest of my life, that would probably be silk grenadine.
A long-time sponsor of the blog, Poszetka.com, offers high quality accessories handmade in Poland from Italian and British fabrics. They usually make short, limited runs of their stuff, each time with an idea behind them.
They have a range of magnificent designs on their pocket squares. Like this fantastic Japanese collection – several pocket squares in cotton and cashmere blend with artworks by Japanese masters, originally created in coloured woodcut technique.
Sartolane offers high-quality leather accessories. Everything is made in a small Polish workshop in business since the 70s, which has experience with working with the best European and worldwide luxury brands. Sartolane uses the same materials as those luxury brands: Italian top-grain leathers, SOOCCI stainless steel hardware, or Raccagni zippers. Among their products you’ll find bags, wallets, sleeves, and belts. You can also count on their post-sale service; they’ll renovate your bag free of charge within five years of purchase!
In march you can expect some new stuff from them – including an updated bag configuration tool, with completely new personalization options. Other than that, they’re preparing something special for everyone who already owns their bag – more info on that soon.
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.
Since the weather is getting warmer, you should look into their linen shirts. The range of fabrics they offer is broad, starting with what looks similar in colour and texture to denim, with more classic options also available. Plain and patterened. There’s a lot to choose from!
