    My dry cleaner pressed one of my cappelli ties when I sent it in to be cleaned. Now the edges look as crooked as a saw blade. Anything I can do or will it take time to return to its natural shape?

    In my experience once a tie has been flattened it is forever lost. Hope someone will prove me wrong.

    Try TieCrafters in NYC.

    They might be able to salvage this mess

    I spoke to them after I had the same disaster with a tie which I had worn once.
    They said that they would be able to restore the tie. I never sent it to them, but intend to drop it off
    on my next trip to NewYork. Good Luck.

    Hmm.. That's a rather unique print. Sadly, your tie is finished and will need to be replaced. Contact me for more information.
