The personal touch
The Tailor-Made Lab provides clients with a myriad of exclusive options to customise their very own automotive-inspired Travel Bag Set, whether they wish to match it to their car, racing team or a particular colour scheme. Consisting of four or more bags, items in the Travel Bag Set can include a weekender garment bag, trolley bag, duffle bag and travel case or document case. Now, clients have the option to enrich their collection with the addition of a luxury leather helmet and weekender bag.
Full-grain calfskin leather helmet and weekender bags
Intricately handcrafted in Italy, the luxurious full-grain calfskin leather helmet and weekender bags create the perfect marriage of masculinity and sport. Designed in Bologna’s renowned Motor Valley and crafted by skilled artisans in Monza, near the Autodromo Nazionale Monza Formula One track, each item is inspired by breath-taking beauty, supreme quality, and timeliness appeal of the world’s most iconic cars.
Both the helmet and weekender bags are lined with the highest-quality microfiber fabric to accompany the luxury full-grain calfskin and sport suede leather, helping to protect goods from damage and illustrating quintessential Italian craftsmanship. The elegant details adhering these all-new bags are a testament to the finest of luxury. Both feature The Outlierman’s metal logo carefully placed by hand on the leather exterior and include a leather ID tag, which can be personalised with the customer’s initials. A large top zip on each bag allows for effortless insertion and removal of items, whilst the helmet bag contains a spacious lower compartment to hold what you need on the track and in the pits, whether it be driving gloves, helmet accessories, driver shoes, wallets, protective scarves, or masks. Alongside this, protective metal feet and adjustable and detachable straps ensure both bags are designed to be durable and functional - the ultimate accomplice for all driving enthusiasts.
Whilst the weekender garment bag has the capacity to unfold and carry a suit in the lining, the weekender bag - joining the Tailor-Made lab - is smaller in size, so unable to do the same. Instead, The Outlierman’s design experts in Italy have created a solution for those who still wish to be able to transport a suit with their weekender. Clients now have the option of a leather suit cover, which can be used on its own, or can be fastened onto the outside of the weekender bag and can feature the same interior lining and external leather colour combination of their accompanying weekender bag.
Andrea Mazzuca, Founder of The Outlierman, commented: “The idea behind the luxurious leather helmet and weekender bags came from a desire to create the perfect kit for a track day or weekend. Now, I’m thrilled to say that these can be included in our bespoke Tailor-Made Lab.
“Working closely with our expert designers, clients will be able to create items that are deeply personal to them and of course match their cars or racing team, for example. Our design team are extremely passionate about helping customers choose the perfect combination from the wide range of leathers and interiors on offer and will be on hand throughout, to deliver that personal touch. What better way to celebrate the romance of the open road and track!”
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 and trolley and duffle bag that form the Tailor-Made Lab. Clients 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 percent 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.
Once customers confirm the colours and design of the 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. 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. Meanwhile, the travel case is also an item of pure Italian beauty and is designed to protect a traveller’s personal belongings within its spacious silk-lined interior.
