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.
