Between Punxsutawney Phil’s declaration that Spring’s just around the corner and that pot o’ gold gleaming on the horizon - there’s plenty of reason to put green bow ties into immediate rotation.
As the Irish would say, R. Hanauer has hapes of handsome emerald colored accessories to pick from. So we've put together a choice collection of our favorite green bow ties, neck ties, pocket squares, and even a cummerbund set or two - should you find yourself headed to a formal affair for St. Patrick's Day, Mardi Gras and beyond.
Get Mischievous with a St. Patrick's Day Bow Tie
There’s something whimsical about a paisley and, when presented asymmetrically, it can feel a wee bit mischievous too … which means it’s ideal for St. Paddy’s.
Rich jewel tones - including a proud Irishman’s green and orange - make our Green Tuckahoe Stripes Bow Tie a stunning choice for daytime and evening St. Patrick’s Day events. This accessory is all silk and, with colors fit for all seasons, delightfully evergreen. The sly fox and the little green lad alike are known for their stealthy ways and top-quality mischief. Combine both notions in our Green Fox Mask Necktie and you have a delightful nod to all things tricky. This all-silk accessory is just the handsome devil you need to add a wee pep in your step.
When iconic green meets mythical gold the result just has to be lucky, right? We think so too. Which is why our striking Gold/ Green Bar Stripes Necktie is one of our go-tos for St. Patrick’s Day. This all-silk fabric is hand-made in the US and is also available as a cummerbund set and, separately, as a bow tie.
Steeped in tradition, tartan is one of those polished patterns that makes you feel that extra bit festive. Our Black Watch Tartan Cummerbund Set is among our most popular as it’s known for its universal wearability - no direct Irish or Scottish heritage required. The bow tie is also sold separately and this fabric is available as a necktie as well.
Put a Spring in Your Wardrobe with Green Bow Ties
At the top of our green bow tie list is, of course, our Columbia Palmetto Bow Tie. Our family is proud to run our business in the Palmetto State, so there’s nothing finer than representing the South Carolina flag while avoiding a pinch! Hand-made in our Fort Mill shop, this all-silk bow tie is a closet staple, suitable for every season.
Perfect for spring (and summer too), our Royal Blue/Green Kensington Striped Bow Tie is fresh, crisp and, with its vibrant colors, wonderfully energetic. Woven in England and hand-made in the US, this durable all-silk accessory ties a beautiful knot that holds its shape throughout the workday and well past happy hour.
Showcasing the colors in the Irish Flag and the colors of a classic American Spring, our Green, Yellow & Pink Madras Bow Tie checks every box. A silk and cotton blend that’s hand-made in the USA, it’s oh-so charming and terrifically happy-go-lucky. St. Patrick’s Day: check! Spring Wedding: check! Graduation Ceremony: check! Available also as a must-have cummerbund set.
There’s not a traditional gentleman to be found who doesn’t appreciate a spot of gorgeous gingham. It’s sharp and sophisticated, and also playful and bright. Handmade in the USA, our all-cotton Green/Blue Gingham Bow Tie will instantly prove to be a versatile addition to your Spring and Summer wardrobe.
Polish Up with Some Gorgeous Green Squares
Two-tone houndstooth and elegant paisleys pair perfectly in our rich emerald Green Jennings Paisley Pocket Square. The fabric is an Italian-made silk/wool voile and photos don’t do this accessory justice. It’s strong enough to be a statement piece when worn alone, and a dashing final touch when presented in concert with other fine accessories.
There’s nothing as versatile as our all-cotton, hand-rolled squares. A sophisticated go-to all year long, our Green Whipstitch Border Pocket Square is an easy and yet not-so-obvious win on St. Patrick’s Day. Regardless of whether you plan to “go green or go home” or join in the fun through a more subtle gesture, this square should have a definite place in your springtime wardrobe.
For a different take on St. Paddy’s Day dress, consider popping a rainbow in your pocket with our Bright Multi Color Linen Border Pocket Square. Hand-rolled in Italy, this all-linen piece guarantees to add interest and energy to your day or evening look.
