    Did some closet cleaning recently and came across a bunch of older ties that I haven't worn in quite some time, including 2 old favorites that I still loved despite their width (almost 4''). Enter The Cordial Churchman...

    Since I've started wearing bows from time to time, but have a hard time finding many I like, I decided to give their neck/bow tie conversion service a try.

    Mailed the ties off on October 26th and received the completed products this morning, along with a linen/silk Lewis I purchased at the same time.

    before (silk on the left, wool on the right):

    I'm extremely pleased with the craftsmanship, customer service and turnaround time (considering the forth and back cross-border delays) and highly recommend their products. I plan on purchasing from them again and will also likely use their conversion service again in the future.

    Very nicely done. They came out great. I like the Lewis a lot as well. :slayer:

    Thanks bb, I just need to steam the wrinkles out of the lt grey one. The Lewis is awesome; I was sold on its texture (it's all about the nubs!) as soon as I saw it.

    I had a great experience with these folks. High quality craftsmanship turned three old unusable neckties into three smart modern bowties!
