Brackish Bow Ties Fall Look Book


Brackish Bow Ties is the originator of the feathered bow tie and it all started out of necessity for the founders Ben Ross and Jeff Plotner. Not wanting to settle for mediocracy, Ben handcrafted a set of turkey feather bow ties for his groomsmen for his wedding in 2007.  Almost 10 years later with one of his groomsman Jeff, the partners have created an empire of feathered accessories that have made a global impact. With their headquarters and production in Charleston, they employ 50 artisans and production assistants who painstakingly make each tie, cummerbund, and pin to perfection.  They have since expanded their turkey feathers to an exotic ray of colors using peacock, guinea, rooster, and pheasant. Each tie is a work of sustainable art and one of a kind.


As well as online you can shop them locally at Gwynn’s of Mt. Pleasant ,  Charleston TuxedoGrady Ervin & Co.Grand Bohemian Hotel , and Charleston Preservation Society.  From humble beginnings to selling at national retailers such as Neiman Marcus and the legendary London department store Harrods, Brackish Bow Ties is ready to make men look more dapper one feather at a time.

As Charleston Fashion Week draws to a close, some of the best dressed people in Charleston pulled out all of the stops.  The styles ran the gamut from streetwear to party frocks to well suited gentleman. I think we live up to the title of the most attractive people in the U.S. pretty well.
