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.
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.
I like long-sleeve polos, popover shirts or rugby shirts – if and only if all the details are done right, by which I mean – according to my preferences. The shape and stiffness of the collar of cuffs, for example. It’s really difficult to find them RTW and exactly the way I want them, but Luxire’s here to help. They allow you to specify really small details of the order and will make it just the way you want it. If that’s something you value – go ahead and give them a chance, it’s worth it.
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.
But Patine is boldly entering the accessories market, starting with socks, belts and ties, and now – pocket squares. Elegant, classic designs printed on silk, with delicate, hand-rolled edges – it’s a standard I don’t think it’s worth giving up. Those squares will look great with a conservative business suit as well as a part of a more interesting smart casual outfit.
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. Sartolane focuses a lot on their post-sale service, offering free renovation within their 5 years warranty.
If you’re one of their clients, you might find this interesting: their cyclical briefcase buyback program. Current edition lasts until July 31st, and allows you to trade your used Sartolane bag for a voucher you can use for buying a new one. The bag, after a thorough renovation, will be put on sale again as a part of special program.
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.
This summer, Benevento offers trousers made of Irish linen of Ulster Weavers mill. And in a style I like and wear a lot: high rise, wide, two-button waistband, pleats, cuffs and side adjusters. It’s a type of trouser that’s really difficult to buy RTW, but they look and wear amazing.
