MY BELIEFS AND CONVICTIONS

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gentlemenclover is a wonderful opportunity to believe that the tie can make its stylish comeback. My main idea is to offer you a range of light, flexible and relevant ties by taking up some aesthetic codes ; which made this piece a must-have accessory for distinguished men in the past.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The choice of fabrics consists in a mix of seasonality and inspiration from styles and times. And because it is crucial to adapt to the desire of each one of us, you will also be able to find your own tie by choosing "its measurements".

The Gentlemenclover ties are modern and entirely handmade in Italy, unlined and with a hand rolled hem giving them a "sartorial" spirit.

Oh, please practice it without moderation and whatever the context or the occasion is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

BESPOKE & DESIGN

 

The Gentlemenclover tie line consists of 36 fabric designs. If you wonder why, this number refers to my age.

 

The ties are available in three categories of constructions offering you the choice between 12 drawings in 3-fold, 12 drawings in 5-fold and 12 drawings in 7-fold.

 

Once the construction is chosen, it will also be necessary to choose the drawing. For that, you will have to complete a form of fabrics and dimensions. (This will occur at the end of the campaign, so please stay connected to your emails !)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE 12 3-FOLD DRAWINGS 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE 12 5-FOLD DRAWINGS 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THE 12 7-FOLD DRAWINGS 

 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

Attention : only one choice will be possible by contribution. In any case, you will be able to make evolve your tie through the options that you will find.

 

 

 

 

 

THE TIE IN DETAIL : 3-FOLD, 5-FOLD AND 7-FOLD

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

            Example : 3-fold category ref. Gentlemenclover_KKB_3_fold_2

 

 

 

 

The elders would say that there are in fact only two types of ties. The 3-fold and the 7-fold. My workshop in Milan confessed me that they adapted to the fashion because the question of how many plies has your tie is more recent. The process is quite simple, but complex at the same time. The ties being entirely handmade, it is necessary to involve several qualified artisans for each steps that requires the tie. To simplify, the piece of fabric you choose is plied, three, five or seven times. All of this is methodically closed by a stitch.

 

A lack of lining but no interlining : it is necessary to keep a minimum of strength and thickness because the more folds, the more comfort. By their construction, the ties remain designed very flexible and light when worn. Reassure yourself : even your knots will not resist.

 

The fabrics are chosen from my workshops, which are supplied directly around the Como Lake. The 36 fabrics are mainly composed of silk, and not an average one because, even in its thickness, (24 momi), the only choice is quality, in order to always offer you an authentic piece of character. The different designs will bring you a real style without limiting you in your associations and outfits.

COLORS

 

Uniform colo is definitely not in the plan of this first campaign, or just a little. It is always difficult to choose the color of your tie, which is why you will have the choice between several tones according to different variations. And what better than to have this unique personality by mixing a drawing and a color!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

IMPORTANT: Once the campaign is complete, you will be able to choose the size of your tie. A questionnaire will be sent to you later. Also for those who could not have arrived in time to have their initials. You will be able to add this option to your order for 10 € (up to three initials). You may find in the options section.

 

 

 

THE MEASUREMENTS OF YOUR TIE

 

Because everything is customizable. You will have the choice of the measurements, once only the completed campaign and the questionnaire received. To be precise : 4 choices of width: 7.5 cm or 8 cm or 8.5 cm or 9 cm and 2 choices of length: 147 cm or 150 cm

 

 

 

THE GENTLEMENCLOVER BOX

 

It is still the first thing you will see before your tie. So I wanted to offer you a box not different from those already done but in my image and taking my codes. Always in a spirit of luxury, the green and gold colors are part of it. Its difference is in its touch and texture, like a refined silk. You will better understand once in hand.

 

 

HAVE AN EVEN MORE EXCLUSIVE TIE : OPTIONS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OPTION 1: THE INITIALS (+ € 10 UP TO 3 INITIALS)

 

In order to entirely customize your tie, the initials could be important. They can be done either on the part of the big pan (inside), or on the part of the small pan (outside). All this with a possibility to customize up to three letters.

 

Reminder: In order to obtain this option, you must add  (+ 10 €) to your contribution.

 

 

 

OPTION 2: EVOLUTION OF THE CONSTRUCTION CHOICE

 

From 3-fold to 5-fold (+ 20 euros) or 7-fold (+ 30 euros)

 

If a drawing attracts you but is only limited to the 3-fold category, you can, through this option, decide to change your drawing of ties in 5-fold or 7-fold. It will be necessary in this case, to obtain a 5-fold, to add + 20 € to your contribution. To obtain a 7-fold, it will be necessary to add + 30 € to your contribution.

 

From 5-fold to 7-fold (+ 25 €)

 

The same process for the 5-fold category. You can, through this option, decide to change your design of ties in 7-fold. It will be necessary, in this case, to obtain a 7-fold, to add + 25 € to your contribution.

 

Attention, the opposite is unfortunately not possible!

 

 

 

MY FUNDING

 

A duty of transparency with you, the absence of many intermediaries and a consequently reduced margin allows me to offer you an attractive price range which does not exceeds 100 € including VAT, even for the 7-fold. Without neglecting the quality of silks and the exigeant construction of ties.

 

 

THE DIFFERENTIATING POINT The difference that brings you a Gentlemenclover tie? It is also in its concept, It is common to choose the fabric, but, in general, everything is already predefined. There you can customize your tie from the beginning, until the end. No half measure but simply MEASURE at an attractive price differentiating from the equivalence competition.

 

 

 

TIME IS FLYING

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You will have the duration of my age to order, so essentially 36 days (and no extra), to hope to raise the fixed amount allowing me to continue to write my story. At the end of this period, you will receive a confirmation email and some news, especially concerning the choice of your options and sizes.

 

From the 36th day, I will be able to produce the complement of my current stocks. This is a first experience so it will requires you to be a little bit more patient and complacent, but I promise to do my best to be on time. It will be 5 weeks (35 days) more than if the stock would have already been paid. TRANSPARENCY You must know that in these 35 days of production 80% will consist in the time required for the production and printing of your ties, the remaining 20% for the logistics.

 

FOR DELIVERY, it will be offered for France. It will be necessary to add an extra 10 € for a delivery in Europe and 15 € for an international delivery.

 

 

 

FOR THANKS

 

It's important for me. Thank you all for your support during all these months. 2017 will remain and 2018 will write it.

 

I want to thank Yvelines Active again but also the BNP for their support in this beautiful story. Thank you kisskissbankbank for allowing me to tell it. Thank you Henrick Gauche, Emeric Delalandre, Jean-Sebastien Coste and thank you Etienne Brunel. Thank you to Mr. Magazine and Mr. François-Jean DAEHN. Thank you to the superb team of Les Rhabilleurs, Gabriel, Nicolas and Jerome. Thank you Etienne Malec and Guillaume Laidet for their valuable advices.

 

I do not forget the people involved in my communication, Florian Costenoble my photographer and Pierre Blondel for the video, Pierre Locatelli for the sound of my video. And the communication agency LE PAVILLON ROUGE.

 

To conclude, I want to thank my relatives, to simply believe in me!

 

 

 

 

 

 

WHY KISSKISSBANKBANK AND ITS COUNTERPARTIES

 

Naturally, I chose the kisskissbankbank crowdfunding platform to help my project to become a reality. Because there had to be a minimum of "France" in this magnificent adventure.

 

By financing my project you will do more than dedicate your funds to the acquisition of a tie. You will make your commitment a valuable help in boosting my next collections and goals. Subscribers of my project will also be offered different rewards for their donations.

"And do not forget when choosing your GentlemenClover tie, I do not see it as a fashion accessory anymore, but as a unique piece of personality ! "

MY GENTLEMENCLOVER HISTORY IN A NUTSHELL

 

 

 


 

My attraction to ties is not a family affair. I started wearing them late, first and foremost to heat myself. Bearing only moderately scarves, my preference was quickly moving towards this piece that can even cover you all day. Then, I discovered a renowned Italian house during a stay in Napoli, which allows me to have a real crush and passion for these fabrics that surround your neck.

 

We were in 2013 and I started to wear a tie almost every single day. In short, my story is pretty "simple" or almost ... in early 2017, I became an entrepreneur, launched my blog and registered my brand : Gentlemenclover. The first months were made of beautiful encounters and creations.

 

THERE IS NO COINCIDENCE ... It's important for me to relate that nothing would have been possible, if I would not have been supported and followed by the Yvelines French State. In particular with the project solidarity association "Yvelines actives" which sponsored me. Thanks to their trust, Gentlemenclover was born.

 

Without you nothing will be possible too, so THANK YOU, I am sincerly relying on you!

Allocation of funds

 

10,000 € BUT WHAT FOR?

 

My financial contribution being a mix of staff and accreditation. It will have allowed me to assume globally this first part of the story. Now, I'm not hiding from you that your contributions will really allow me to continue the adventure by funding the rest of my collections. You will understand, without you, nothing will be possible!

 

BUT, the collaborative funding is designed to pre-finance your chosen fabrics and the production of your ties. Not to mention the incompressible VAT (20%), kisskissbankbank fees (8%) and various shipping costs. I have to tell you that it will also contribute to reimburse the communication costs I raised to bring you this first campaign.

 

For Gentlemenclover, this campaign will allow to pursue the incredible adventure and develop future collections, which will always be around the tie. It will also help to improve my blog and website to offer you the best online shop. 

 

For ties, I have the project to be able to produce my next collections in France (the workshop is already targeted). Having a Made In France tie is one of my main goals... faster than expected because, as a result of this first collection, I will conside a new kisskissbankbank for the next fall.

 

 

 

 

AND IF I EXCEED THE OBJECTIVE OF € 10,000?

 

"Then, I blow up the bank!" more seriously, I let go! But with all humility and always in the tie. Without hesitation, I look to invest and have my own workshops, with small French hands and masters of the art of sewing. CREATING EMPLOYMENT IS THE MOST BEAUTIFUL GIFT. So help me realize it!

 

No doubts " The Gentlemenclover company will collect the entire collection "

 

Please, do not hesitate to share the launch of this wonderful adventure with your family, friends or even collaborators.
