We have various shipping methods and costs depending on the preference of delivery time. Shipping costs for orders placed with an expedited shipping method or outside of the Continental United States will be calculated based on the weight of the package, shipping location, and other UPS charges.
We are aware that mistakes may be made by third party shipping providers. If this occurs, it is out of our control. We will do everything we can to rectify the situation, but we are not responsible for any lost packages due to mistakes made by shipping providers.
Does Brackish ship to PO Boxes or military APO/FPO addresses?
All domestic orders ship through UPS and USPS. UPS does not deliver to PO Boxes or military APO/FPO addresses. USPS provides both of these services.

How does Brackish obtain their feathers?
NO BIRD HAS BEEN HARMED FOR THEIR FEATHERS. Brackish obtains all feathers as humanely as possible. When birds molt, they lose old feathers naturally in preparation for new feathers. When possible, the feathers are obtained in this manner. In other instances, feathers are obtained through farmers who raise free range birds. The feathers are usually thrown away as a waste product, but Brackish sustainably reuses them. We wholeheartedly believe in respectfully repurposing nature.
I have a larger/smaller than average neck size. Can I still sport a Brackish bow tie?
Yes! The bow tie neck strap is adjustable from 13” to 21.” If you are interested in placing an order for a larger or smaller neck strap please contact our Charleston-based concierge.
Can I change a center wrap on a bow tie?
Brackish can change the center wrap on our bow ties for an additional fee. Please contact our Charleston-based concierge to place an order for a wrap change.
Why are Brackish bow ties not self tie?
We're aware of and respect the classic self tie bow, however, we take pride in disrupting those traditions, mostly because a self tie feather bow is nearly impossible. Trust us, that will not be an issue when sporting Brackish at your next event!
