Brackish Summerall Bow Tie
Designed in honor of Will Smythe, a close friend and mentor of co-founder Ben's who was a highly decorated cadet at the Citadel Military College of South Carolina, the Summeral is crafted in the school's iconic colors. This one-of-a-kind tie garners its name from the Summerall Guards - a silent precision drill platoon comprised of 61 elite students (including Will) who demonstrate the core Citadel ideals. Considered a high honor at the school, the precision craftsmanship of this tie is our way of honoring the members of this elite group and the beautiful landmark campus here in Charleston, SC.
A voluminous tie with a unique checkerboard pattern, the Summerall features a navy center wrap and is crafted entirely in goose feathers which are upturned for head-turning texture.
Band collar wrap with an adjustable strap and hook closure - fits neck sizes 11" to 20".
Bow tie dimensions are 2.5” tall and 4.5” wide.
Each feather used in production is all-natural and sustainably sourced.
Feathers for bow ties are hand-selected, giving each finished piece unique coloring.
Each bow tie is hand-crafted in Charleston, South Carolina and takes approximately five hours to make, start to finish.
