When it comes down to it, there’s at least a dozen excellent reasons for me to feature The Cordial Churchman. Between every tie being individually handcrafted in South Carolina, the label’s extensive use of repurposed and recycled materials, and the bow’s unbelievably low prices, the company is clearly prime post fodder. But, I’ve decided to go ahead and focus specifically on the brand’s Velvet Bow Ties because, well, I just really, really like them. Made from 100% cotton velveteen (think corduroy, but without the wales), the ties are the perfect autumn accessory for those of us who still like to occasionally pretend we live in a Wes Anderson movie (what, you thought you were the only one?). As with all CC bows, the Velvet BT is available in five different styles / widths (I’m feeling particularly drawn to the narrow butterfly myself), and the tie’s colorways include gray and rust.
