R. Hanauer Bow Ties have been part of a gentleman's wardrobe for over thirty years. Cut on a bias for ideal stretch, our unique bow ties make a relaxed, classic knot and are built for long-lasting shape and enjoyment.
We are dedicated to hand-cutting, hand-sewing and shipping our bow ties out of our hometown workshop in Fort Mill, South Carolina. Our founder, Randy Hanauer, has hand-selected each unique fabric you see in our collections from some of the most renowned fabric mills in the world. Learn more about our story here.
In 1985, Randy Hanauer created the concept and early foundation for R. Hanauer Bow Ties on his dining room table. Now in over 330 high-end stores across the United States, our family-owned and operated company takes pride in all bow ties and cummerbund sets being handmade out of our workshop in Fort Mill, South Carolina. We strongly believe in hand-making all of our menswear with high attention to detail and continuing to uphold our legacy of creating fine American-made bow ties, cummerbund sets and neckties.
While our most popular product is the “best tying bow tie on the market,” R. Hanauer also sells neckties, cummerbund sets, pocket squares, grosgrain belts and various other accessories. Custom bow tie and necktie orders for weddings and corporate events can be made upon request. Our accessories are custom made to fit each gentlemen’s measurements as well as his personality. While we carry many of the classic formal menswear staples like black faille, satin and white pique bow ties, all of our products are created to help gentlemen feel confident in their menswear on an everyday basis.
At R. Hanauer, we are pleased to offer a selection of playful, funny and novel bow ties and tie patterns - both subtle and bold - that make a gentleman stand out in the crowd for all of the right reasons.
From dog-themed bow ties and Jolly Roger ties, to cummerbunds covered in marlins, and bow ties adorned with flamingos - our extensive collection of novelty bow ties and accessories put the kind of pep in your step that lasts through the workday and long beyond.
