A bow tie is a bow tie right? Usually…unless it’s a Brackish bow tie. Then it’s a work of art, a piece of natural beauty, and part of an entrepreneurial story that began with a wedding. As my own entrepreneurial journey was sparked by my wedding (well the name-change nightmare right afterwards) I had to share this amazing company with you, right in time for the holiday giving season.
Ben Ross was the groom who wouldn’t settle for a traditional groomsmen gift. He wanted something special and couldn’t find just the right gifts, so he made them. Literally…he handmade turkey feather bow ties for the guys who stood up with him at his wedding. They were gorgeous and unique. Five years later, Ben and one of those groomsmen started Brackish and now make a line of hand-crafted feather bow ties. The operation has expanded to 50 artisans in South Carolina and the collection is stunning. So, if the man in your life wears bow ties (or you think he needs a statement piece for your wedding or work), I highly recommend a bow tie from Brackish.
Happy shopping nearlyweds and newlyweds!
