A Twist on a Staple in Menswear: Brackish Bow Ties

Deciding what to get for your groomsmen can be a daunting task...do you go with the flask, a good bottle of whiskey or something small? We all know, in itself, picking out gifts for men can be a bit of a challenge. Ben Ross didn't want to go the cliche route for his big day, instead he decided to put his creative mind and his love for the outdoors - fishing and hunting, to work to create something that his groomsmen had never saw before. It was for his wedding day that he chose to combine his love for bow ties with one of his favorite pastimes of the outdoors to develop bow ties created from Turkey feathers.


Since the wedding where these unique yet very stylish bow ties debuted, the groomsmen of Ben's wedding have continued to receive compliments on their spin on the classic bow tie. Ross and his friends decided that they wanted to create a brand out of it, this is when Brackish Bow Ties was born.

There have been several alterations to the original prototypes but only to create a better product. The bow ties are currently available in 3 versions the Jive Turkey, Carolina Copper and Phunky Pheasant Feathers. Brackish Bow Ties are currently only available through their website, brackishbowties.com but hope to soon get the ties in retail shops. The company is doing so well that they also intend to expand their line to include cuff links, cumberbunds and even women's wear.

If I haven't sold you on this product yet, maybe the fact that each bow tie is delivered in its' own personal wood keepsake chest lined with burlap will? I don't know about you but to me receive a bow tie in this fashion would wow me for sure!


This is the perfect gift for groomsmen, your fiance or any special man in your life. More than likely the receipt has never received anything like this before and will truly be blown away with a gift as unique as Brackish. The only thing you must keep in mind if using them in a matching setting is to realize that these bow ties are each individually handcrafted - and due to the nature of that each bow tie will look slightly different based on the bird they came from.


 So if your looking for a new flair on the traditional bow tie or a statement maker for an upcoming wedding or Ducks Unlimited event to name a few, Brackish Bow Ties are just for you!
