Summer is officially here - and social events are back on the calendar! From casual backyard barbecues to fanfare and fireworks, July Fourth is sure to be an event to celebrate and remember this year. And what better way than to laud Independence Day than with an American Flag bow tie?
Check out some of our favorite on-theme pieces, and shop the R. Hanauer Independence Collection for fine accessories that show your American pride all year long.
Flaunt Some Stars & Bars
We offer a variety of star-spangled bow ties that are certain to turn heads and win smiles. Among our most popular is the all-silk Stars & Stripes series, available in a bow tie, necktie and pocket square.
For a formal event, consider our stunning cotton Patriotic Cummerbund Set.
As as another option, our Red, White & Blue Bar Stripes pieces are always clean and classic. They are woven from all silk and - like all of the bow ties and neckties in our Independence Collection - are handmade in the USA, many at our Fort Mill shop.
For a creative twist on tradition, consider our handsome silk American Flag Bow Tie. With polka dots at the knot and crisp stripes across the bow, it offers a level of visual interest and playful movement that will no doubt earn compliments.
Indulge in Classic Combinations
There’s no easier way to put a bit of patriotic pep in your step than to don the colors of Old Glory. Wonderfully versatile, red, white and blue can be dressed up for formal occasions, or worn with shorts or jeans for casual events. For a classic look, pair a few accessories with a crisp white or blue shirt, chinos and leather shoes.
The well-dressed gentlemen who wants to display his patriotism without calling on predictable patterns may enjoy the all-silk Blue Virginia Paisley Bow Tie (available as a navy or red necktie, and of course red bow tie too).
Or for a different take on the quintessential paisley, consider our Virginia Pine series. Sweet seeds spring to life against the strong gingham background, pictured here in blue on red (but also available in red on blue).
