The Bite Magazine - Autmn/Winter 2020 - Issue 28

Jada Brookes is intrigued by the classy, authentic, independent and stylish Outlierman through their classic car-inspired collection of driving gloves, ties, pocket squares, scarves, and bags.  bitemen          Classy, Authentic,and Free  rman      T here is nothing like looking back to the gentlemen of yesterday dressed immaculate- ly in their tailored suits, coupled with a silk or bow tie and a pocket square. Italian menswear brand The Outlierman derives from a genuine passion for the driving world and the elegance of the gentlemen of the past. Their collections of driving gloves, travel bags, ties and bow ties, pocket squares, scarves, and brace suspenders are inspired by a study on classic car models that have marked the tradition of becoming timeless icons. The brand was created in 2015 by Andrea Mazzu- ca and Eleonora Dazzani in Bologna, Italy after Mazzuca read Malcolm Gladwell’s book Outliers: The Story of Success. One of the lines from the book that inspired him was ‘Who we are cannot be separated from where we are from’. Using this inspirational phrase, The Outlierman draws deeply from Italy’s inherent talent for beautiful design and consummate craftsmanship, which is done in-house. Images courtesy of The Outlierman
