Artisans in Como, Italy are busy handcrafting automotive-inspired face masks for clientele of The Outlierman.
Each non-medical face covering is made of several layers of 100 percent silk out and features some of the company’s most popular designs including the Gentleman Driver, World Beater and Vintage Race. Each mask has been incorporated with a one-time use medical filter. Additional filters are available via third-party sites unaffiliated with the company.

When face masks are no longer the vogue thing to do, the fasciae mask transforms into a pocket square for style longevity.
Andrea Mazzuca, founder of The Outlierman, said: “Following our successful reopening last week, I’m delighted to be able to launch our first new product for several months, after lots of demand and enquiries from our customers.
“I’m very happy that we are able to fulfil our customers’ needs with a non-medical face covering that allows them to still embrace the spirit of being a gentleman driver, whilst using a comfortable product that also encapsulates some of our most notable designs.”
Each face mask has stretchy ear loops and an adjustable wire nose fitting. They are washable and reusable. Washing instructions include cleansing the mask in hot water with detergent or dry cleaning. Owners are advised not to iron the product.
The face masks join an extensive lineup of accessories offered by The Outlierman including driving gloves, ties, bow ties, pocket squares, braces, scarves, and foulard. The company also sells a number of bag styles: weekender, trolley, duffle, and backpack. There are also document and travel cases.

The Outlierman sells the masks in a set of three for €75.
