New Life for Old Silk
I know I've sung Ellie's praises here before, but it's a topic that bears repeating. To be fair, Ellie did this as a gift to me. She'll gladly give new life to your old silk for a scant $26. It may not be a buck at the thrift shop, but that's a bargain any way you cut it.
Shame on you if you don't have a Cordial Churchman bow tie yet.

I'm new to your Blog, and loving every post, but this has to be praised as it has given me an option for a greatly loved silk Gianni Versace neck tie, which seemed well beyond repair to me.
I'll be contacting Ellie in the very near future to see what she can do for me!
Thanks for sharing this great business with us all.
When your nemesis set up his online shop, his posts for a good while after seemed mainly to be pushing the stuff he had for sale, which got a little dull. I love the fact your first post-shop-launch post is in praise of someone else's wares.
My first Cordial Churchman purchases are winging their way across the atlantic to me as I type - I've never seen such lovely looking bow ties for sale here in England (if they were they would be three times the price).
I need to teach my husband how to tie a bow tie. Then we can get somewhere.
I have a couple bowties from Ellie and I have nothing but great things to say about them. Great quality, amazing price, and they always get plenty of compliments!
She did a bunch of tie conversions for me and they were all great.
I always knew you were a decent Italian - Mr Berlusconi appears to be the other sort.
Tomraw, you can find good bowties at £25 (so a bit more, but not three times) in the Piccadilly and Burlington Arcades.
As a race, we Italians are not realy known for our skills in politics or diplomacy. Berlusconi serves as a severe example of this. And don't forget about that porn star in parliament.
As the old joke goes:
Heaven is where...
the police are British,
the chefs are Italian,
the mechanics are German,
the lovers are French, and
it's all organized by the Swiss.
Hell is where...
the police are German,
the chefs are British,
the mechanics are French,
the lovers are Swiss, and
it's all organized by the Italians.
(Depending on your preferences, the position of the French and the Italians in heaven can be switched.)
Regardless, it's a great tie--and so are the rest of the Cordial Churchman's wares.
BTW, great shirt in that shot.
