The phrase "sartorial splendor" probably didn't come from Giuseppe Sartori's name, but it could have come from the line of Altea ties he founded. Late in the 18th century, Giuseppe Sartori opened a tie shop in what would become the epicenter of the fashion world – Milan. From the first silk tie that emerged from his workshop, Sartori's ties displayed the understated elegance and extraordinary good taste that eventually defined the Altea line. Today, each Altea tie painstakingly and lovingly crafted of some of the finest silk in the world.

This is a gorgeous scarf. I ordered it in the other color - hesitated because it seemed a bit pricy. I immediately ordered it in the burgundy also. It's large, but very soft and wrappable around the neck. The colors are great. Well worth it.

My son loved this gift. It is a beautiful scarf, but a bit overpriced (even with a coupon) given men's scarves are so heavily promoted and discounted around the holidays. e.g. I bought a very similar one made of cashmere at Neiman Marcus outlet for $55.

This tie is superbly finished. It has rich color, perfect sheen and a deep geometric herringbone pattern with just the right amount of texture. The black warp color accentuates the pattern depth. This tie is the newer, slightly narrower profile. This is a rare product that "jumps out of the box" and does the same when worn without being too ostentatious or busy.
