Menswear Wednesday: The Cordial Churchman

Bow ties can take a man's outfit from formal to classic yet quirky. However, the look of the bow tie sets the stage for the rest of the outfit. Many of my friends have gone for the bow tie look for formals and other college events, and we found one Southern-style company that makes great neckwear for these occasions.

The Cordial Churchman, based out of South Carolina, creates bow ties out of seersucker, gingham, madras and even cashmere. The best part is that some of them are reversible, meaning you can make two different bow ties out of it or one two-toned tie. It's like getting three for the price of one!

This year, the company decided to start a project entitled "366 Bow Ties for Haiti," in which the owners will make one bow tie for every day in 2012, selling them at $29. The profits will go to young school children in Haiti. Even if you have an old neck-tie around the house, you can mail it in to the owners of The Cordial Churchman, and they will remake it into a bow tie for $29 within one week. So not only do you get a stylish new bow tie, but you also get to help make the lives better for children in Haiti.
