I am chagrined. I wrote last week about my husband’s lamentable lack of style when asked to wear anything other than a suit and tie. He wasn’t too happy with me… but in my defense, I did say that on a daily basis he wears a sharp suit and expensive tie and — I quote — “he looks fantastic.”

In fact, he really does look marvelous in a tie and has amassed quite a collection. And just this week, he received a stunning cranberry patterned tie from to add to his 1/8 of our shared master closet!

A warm tone like luscious burgundy is always a favorite for fall, so the style was an instant hit. When paired with a white pinpoint oxford and medium charcoal suit, the tie is perfect for any business setting.

He loved the way the tie looked, but I was thrilled with the quality! The tie, by Italian designer Cavallieri, is part of the new line for Fall 2012 at Handmade from the finest Jacquard woven silk, it features a contemporary Italian design which is typical of the high-end line.
