The Cordial Churchman
If you're looking for bow ties but don't want to break the bank, this is your place. The Cordial Churchman is a small company in South Carolina whose products are made by a skilled woman and promoted by her loving husband. Ellie first got noticed on a few style forums (including the one yours truly is on) after making a reversible seersucker bow tie for her husband and, later, converting average silk neck ties to very cool bow ties. She mostly specialises in traditional summer fabrics -- seersucker, madras, chambray, and gingham check -- but also makes a few in wool or silk fabric. Best of all, everything is only $26 since there are no ads or middlemen to deal with. Make sure to give them a look if you're planning a wedding, too. They have a program to order a set of their distinct bow ties for the groomsmen in your party.
