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.
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!
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.
Their customization tool allowing you to decide on the details of the order is pretty awesome. The number of available options trumps any other online MTM I’ve seen, and allows for personalization of even very small details.
One of the options you can choose are hand-finished details: hand-attached collar, sleeves, gussets and buttons, as well as hand-finished buttonholes. Or you can just select Luxire Hand Made Luxury Shirt while adding your new shirt to the basket.
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 expands its collection of their own unique designs, which prove to be so popular that the entire stock disappears in no time. This time it’s five new pocket squares with illustrations by Daria Solak, showing cities of Europe: London, Berlin, Vienna, Rome and Stockholm.
There are also new shirts in linen/cotton blend, including the beautiful blue striped one with hidden button-down collar.
Patine.pl is a distributor of shoes by a Spanish brand Yanko, and more recently, a new brand, TLB Mallorca. Founded by a young artisan specializing in handmade footwear, Toni Llobera Barceló, TLB offers shoes that are, frankly, spectacular. From beautiful, dynamic lasts to high-quality leathers from Italian and French tanneries, tanned with traditional methods. All the shoes are made with Goodyear Welted construction in TLB’s workshop.
It’s a fresh brand, but founded by people who know what they’re doing and have experience. The effect they aim to achieve is one that will please a demanding customer. Patine has, among others, two models of an increasingly popular shoe, split-toe derby: Owen 538 and Dylan 534.
If you’re looking for something more suited for a summer weather Yanko unlined loafers should meet your needs. They’re light and soft – and damn comfortable.
