THE OUTLIERMAN LAUNCHES NEW LIMITED-EDITION T-SHIRTS

The Outlierman, makers of handcrafted luxury automotive inspired accessories, today introduces all-new limited-edition t-shirts to its Portrait Collection.

  • Bologna-based, The Outlierman, has launched all-new limited-edition t-shirts for its Portrait Collection
  • Incorporating iconic designs from the Portrait Collection, including the Jaguar E-Type and Porsche 356, these t-shirts were created following popular customer demand
  • Made of 100% Lisle Cotton Yarn for comfort, each t-shirt features a characteristic art portrait printed on a 100% silk satin patch
  • Each design will only be produced in 50 copies, making these t-shirts an authentic collector’s item
  • The Outlierman is an Italian company that creates luxury automotive inspired accessories for gentlemen drivers

Following popular customer demand, the Italian driving accessories company have launched two all-new t-shirts which incorporate two of its most iconic designs – the ‘356’s Portrait’, based on the Porsche 356, and the ‘E-Type’s Portrait’, centred around the Jaguar E-Type.

Limited to just 50 examples of each design, every piece features an authentic automotive art portrait created by The Outlierman’s talented design team, characterised by vivid brushstrokes and enriched by title and signature, for an even more exclusive result. Printed on a 100% silk satin patch that becomes the protagonist of a garment, with an elegant fit and versatile design, the t-shirt is suitable for free time as well as being worn under a jacket for an original and distinctive smart casual outfit.

A garment with comfort and exquisite aesthetic performance, each item is crafted using Lisle Cotton Yarn, the noblest variety of cotton yarns, produced by working the best long linden fibres with two or more twisted edges to obtain a soft and naturally shiny weave. Lisle Cotton Yarn owes its extraordinary breathable, anti-allergic and antibacterial properties to the use of a very fine cotton coming from the delta of the Nile river and processed according to a particular technique that has been handed down since 1850.

Meanwhile, silk satin is a fabric with a thousand-year history, capable of enhancing the chromatic choices of our designers thanks to an exquisitely shiny and uniform surface. The extraordinary brightness properties of this natural yarn are a precise choice of our designers, aimed at enhancing the chiaroscuro features and the expressiveness of the colours to create vivid designs like those of the Italian masters.

Andrea Mazzuca, CEO and founder of The Outlierman, said: “I’m thrilled to be able to share our all-new limited-edition t-shirts with our customers, featuring two of the most iconic designs from The Outlierman, which are works of art to wear and collect. Replicated in only 50 copies, these t-shirts are an authentic collector’s rarity and are the result of a 100% Made in Italy know-how: sketched, designed, produced and tailored in Italy by Italian talents.

“As one of the most recognisable cars in the world, the Jaguar E-Type is the pinnacle of automotive design and a car that will forever be associated with the swinging sixties. The Porsche 356 helped form the foundations for the marque as its first production vehicle, contributed to Porsche’s motorsports success and increased the brand’s popularity prior to the release of the 911.”

Customers can combine their limited edition t-shirts with other items from both the 356’s Portrait and the E-Type’s Portrait collections, such as a handmade cashmere and silk square scarf, a 100% twill silk bow tie, a 100% habotai silk pocket square and a 100% habotai silk scarf – all made in Italy.

About The Outlierman

The Outlierman was created by Andrea Mazzuca and Eleonora Dazzani in Bologna in 2015. Mr. Mazzuca chose to name the company ‘The Outlierman’ after reading Malcolm Gladwell’s book ‘Outliers: The Story of Success.’ One of the lines from the book that inspired Mazzuca is: ‘Who we are cannot be separated from where we are from.’ Hence, The Outlierman draws deeply on Italy’s inherent talent for beautiful design and consummate craftsmanship. A small, passionate team of 10 people designs each item in-house. All items are handcrafted by artisans in Italy, chosen for their world-class expertise in their relevant field. The Outlierman produces collections for discerning drivers, including: driving gloves, scarves, ties, bow ties, braces, pocket squares, bags and document cases. The Outlierman has been selected as a partner to the annual Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance since 2016 – considered by many as the world’s most prestigious automotive gathering and has collaborated with motor manufacturers such as Bentley, MINI and Pagani Auotomobili S.p.A. to create bespoke accessories. The Outlierman Magazine, which contains features on classic and contemporary cars, fashion, romantic road trips, events and more, is produced both online and in print.

Pirelli Shines at Monterey Car Week

From August 18, Monterey County became America’s capital of automotive culture. The Monterey Car Week, which ends on August 26, has attracted thousands of enthusiasts, with Pirelli – a vital partner of the world’s most exclusive car manufacturers – playing a starring role.

The Italian firm is sponsor of ‘The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering’, which is one of the key events of the Californian car week, with more than 5000 visitors and 250 cars. Now celebrating its 16th anniversary, this event is synonymous with exclusivity. Starting from the venue: the Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel, an oasis of green set against the backdrop of the imposing Santa Lucia mountains in California.

The brands present among the 250 acres of The Quail are just as impressive. Among them are Pagani, McLaren and Lamborghini – all of whom use Pirelli tires exclusively as original equipment – which have chosen The Quail as the venue to exhibit some of the most important models in their range.

Pirelli is also showcasing some of its most iconic products. First and foremost is the P Zero, the ultra high performance tire chosen by some of the world’s most powerful supercars, many of which are present at the Quail.

The Collezione range also takes pride of place: a family of tires developed by Pirelli for classic cars that combine modern technology with vintage looks. These use cutting edge compounds to offer maximum grip and water evacuation, in order to guarantee the highest standards of safety and dependability without compromising on looks.

As a result, Collezione tires are on many of the classic cars at The Quail, which is just as much about timeless classics as it is about modern cars. Among there are a number of examples of the Lamborghini Espada and Lamborghini Islero, which celebrate their 50th birthdays, not to mention the iconic Porsche 356, which first saw the light of day exactly 70 years ago.

It’s this blend of the past and future, as well as enthusiasm for cars and the finer things in life, which make The Quail one of the jewels in the crown of Monterey Car week. It’s a unique event, where car manufacturers share the space with six gourmet pavilions – including one dedicated to Italian food, which is also sponsored by Pirelli. It all adds up to an unforgettable and uniquely refined atmosphere.

Pirelli and Pagani 10 years of technical partnership at The Quail

The 2018 Quail also marked an important landmark: 10 years of technical partnership between Pirelli and Pagani. Back in 2008, Horacio Pagani first decided to entrust Pirelli with the task of making tires for his increasingly powerful and exclusive hypercars built in Modena.

It was an Italian marriage that got off the best possible start when, only a few months later, a Pagani Zonda equipped with P Zero, set a new record at the Nürburgring. Since then the partnership has gone from strength to strength. Every Pagani car now leaves the factory on made to measure Pirelli tires. This tailor-made approach, a cornerstone of Pirelli’s philosophy, has ensured the highest standards of performance and safety for Pagani since 2008. It’s a genuine partnership, with Pirelli’s engineers working hand in hand with their counterparts at Pagani throughout all the phases of research and development, coming up with compounds and processes that are specifically suited to the characteristics of each model.

The Quail × A Motorsports Gathering

The premier automotive event will welcome four featured classes — “The Great Lancias,” “50th Anniversary of the Espada & Islero,” “70 Years of the Iconic Porsche 356” and “The Alois Ruf Reunion” — during its Monterey Car Week Event held at Quail Lodge & Golf Club on August 24, 2018

Today, The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering has officially announced four featured classes for its 16th-anniversary celebration on Friday, August 24, 2018. Recognizing Italian heritage and German innovation, the special selection will include “The Great Lancias,” “50th Anniversary of the Espada & Islero,” “70 Years of the Iconic Porsche 356” and “The Alois Ruf Reunion.”

“The Great Lancias” class will be highlighted by notable models that exemplify the Italian manufacturer’s strong rally heritage. Key vehicles will include a 1974 Stratos HF Group IV, a 1955 Aurelia B24S and a 1988 Delta Intergrale 8V.

Meanwhile, the “50th Anniversary of the Espada & Islero” class will pay tribute to two of Lamborghini’s most timeless V12-powered touring cars: the low-production Islero GT and the 2+2 Espada that became one of Sant’Agata’s best-selling models. Half a century after both models debuted at the Geneva Motor Show, 21 of these iconic vehicles will be on display.

The Quail will also celebrate German automotive history and legacy through the special “70 Years of the Iconic Porsche 356” class. The display will include noteworthy examples of the marque’s first production sports cars such as a 1951 356 Pre-A Split Window, a 1958 356 A Speedster, a 1965 356 C Coupe and other seminal vehicles from the legendary marque.

“The Alois Ruf Reunion” will focus on German innovation through a selection of sports cars from the legendary Pfaffenhausen manufacturer and tuner. Included in the class will be the 1988 CTR “Yellowbird” #001, freshly restored by RUF themselves. The car will be presented alongside the new 710 horsepower CTR, making its North American debut. Along with the old and new CTR, several other prominent RUF vehicles will grace the event — from the CTR2 to the RCT and many more.

“To amp up the anticipation surrounding The Quail, we are featuring four new classes for car enthusiasts from around the world to enjoy,” said Gordon McCall, Director of Motorsports for The Peninsula Signature Events. “Guests of the show will be delighted to see a remarkable selection of cars that represent the Italian and German perspectives of automotive excellence.”

Keeping with tradition, these featured classes will complement the familiar roster of pre- and post-war classes as they line the prestigious greens of Quail Lodge & Golf Club.

In addition to the world-class selection of vehicles, The Quail will offer an array of culinary pavilions, award-winning wines and spirits and a Fireside Chat Series in the elegant yet family- and pet-friendly environment. Guests will also be invited to attend the Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction taking place concurrently on the Quail Lodge Farm Field.

The event is sold out; however, if an individual has missed the opportunity to purchase tickets, they may submit a waitlist request online. Other options for admission include The QuailHelicopter Ticket and The QuailCharitable Patron Ticket, which are still available for purchase.
