Brackish

It's a particular man that puts a lot of thought into his groomsmen gifts, and for Ben Ross a beer stein or cufflinks weren't going to cut it. Out of necessity comes invention. To reflect the natural beauty of the South, but elevate it with impeccable intricacy, Ben handcrafted a set of turkey feather bow ties for the men in his wedding party in 2007. That gesture begot a wave of admiration and inspiration that became Brackish only a few years later.

Today Ben and one of those groomsmen, Jeff Plotner, have an operation that honors artisan techniques, distinctive style and the spirit of the South--making their creations available to others who won't settle for ordinary accessories. Brackish is redefining tradition while crafting memorable yet personal pieces for the modern man's closet. In their Charleston production base, they have fine tuned their process and expanded designs in order to make a lasting impact on the wardrobes of many with one-of-a-kind works of art.

Every tie is handcrafted locally in South Carolina by a team of 50 artisans and production assistants. And because every single feather is hand selected, no 2 Brackish bow ties are exactly alike. Every tie is a sustainable work of art. We have put painstaking effort into our products and pride ourselves on genuine, intricate detail not found in mass production.
