The Outlierman company was formed with a mission to handcraft a range of accessories inspired by the breath-taking beauty, supreme quality and timeless appeal of the world’s most iconic cars. Now, with the introduction of The Outlierman Tailor-Made Lab, the company is raising the bar higher still, by enabling customers to design their own Travel Bag Set to match their car and further celebrate the romance of the open road.
The Outlierman was born out of a desire to create the finest automotive accessories, and now the Italian company is launching its Tailor-Made Lab division to enable customers to design their own Travel Bag Set.
“I founded The Outlierman company when I was looking for accessories that would enable me to enjoy driving my Aston, Jaguar and Porsche models even more but could not find anything suitable on the market,” explains Andrea Mazzuca. “I still remember the thrill of choosing the materials and colours for those first items. Now, with The Outlierman Tailor-Made Lab service, customers can experience the same pleasure as they liaise with our designers to create items that are deeply personal to them and of course, match their cars.”
Customers can begin the process by visiting The Outlierman website and choosing either a Travel Case or a Document case to accompany the Weekender Garment Bag, Trolley and Duffle Bag that form the Tailor-Made Lab Travel Bag Set. Customers are welcome to add as many additional items to the set as they wish.
The items are stylishly coordinated using a combination of one to three exterior colours chosen from a collection of 69 fine, full-grain calf skin leathers. Customers can further match their new luggage accessories to their car with a range of exclusive inner bag linings fashioned in 100 per cent silk. Each lining is crafted by master tailors from Como, and is inspired by iconic cars. Alternatively, customers can select a high-quality microfibre from an extensive range of solid colours.
“Our designers are passionate about helping customers choose the perfect combination from the wide range of leathers and interiors on offer,” explains Mr. Mazzuca. Customers fill in their contact details and upload a short message to The Outlierman website, and the Tailor-Made Lab Team will in touch within 48 hours or less.
Once customers confirm the colours and design of The Travel Set, only the very finest artisans are chosen to create each item. Specialists are sought out across Italy for their exclusive skills passed down from generation to generation. Tailors from Lake Como, a region steeped in centuries of silk manufacturing, are chosen to create the exquisite interior linings for the Travel Bag Set, and customers will have the finished masterpieces delivered to them within 90 days.
Stylish and practical
Sensuously styled and consummately crafted, The Outlierman accessories are also famed for their ingenious features. “Our luggage pieces not only summon up the romance of a classic road trip, they are also robustly practical and can accommodate everything a gentleman driver needs – no matter how lengthy or arduous the journey,” explains Mr. Mazzuca.
The Weekender Garment Bag features a zip that runs around its entire perimeter, enabling it to be fully opened and laid out flat so that a suit can be effortlessly accommodated inside, along with numerous items of clothing and accessories. The Travel Trolley Bag is equipped with silent in-line wheels for smooth running, while two exterior pockets provide additional practicality. The compact and exceptionally versatile Duffle Bag provides ample space with two large inner and outer zippered pockets and features leather handles and a detachable shoulder strap.
Thanks to its hand-stitched, full-grain leather construction, the Document Case retains its elegant shape while effortlessly accommodating all the paperwork and documentation a traveller may need for their journey within its double internal compartment. The Backpack provides a unique combination of timeless elegance and contemporary mobility. Inside, a padded internal compart enables a laptop to be transported in comfort and safety, while an external zippered pocket provides effortless access. The Travel Case is also an item of pure Italian beauty, and is designed to protect a traveller’s personal effects within its spacious silk-lined interior.
