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

Probably best to just buy a new one from davesmith. :slayer: Learn your lesson for next time. Never dry clean ties

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.
