What To Wear on New Year's Eve: A Men's Guide

What to wear on New Year’s Eve is a well-dressed gentleman’s pleasure to consider. 

Whether you plan to usher in the first of January at a heart-warming watchnight service or by being tremendously merry long past midnight, R. Hanauer has a stunning array of New Year’s bow ties, cummerbunds and pocket squares to suit every occasion.  

Here are a few of our favorite black tie and formal looks for this momentous occasion:

New Year's Eve Black Tie 

Our Black Velvet Cummerbund Set is nothing short of auld lang syne luxury. Hand-made in our Fort Mill workshop, the cotton velvet is a soft, supple (and wonderfully comfortable) show-stopper that will satisfy every ultra-formal affair while never going out of style. For an especially festive look, consider our Red Velvet Cummerbund Set

New Years Eve Black Velvet Bow Tie

We can’t get enough of this gorgeous Black/Purple Greek Key Cummerbund Set. Its bold yet intricate pattern makes it a tasteful statement piece. It's masculine, classic and most definitely ready to party.

Woven in England and hand-made in Fort Mill, this all-silk stunner is also available in red, blue and silver sets, and all of our Greek Key bow ties are sold separately too. Better polish your dancing shoes!

The self-sufficient Southern gentleman will be delighted to represent his most prideworthy pastime in our Black/Pewter Formal Camo Cummerbund Set.

Whether he’s a military man or an avid huntsman, our all-silk camouflage is a brilliant conversation starter for a black tie affair. Hand-made in our Fort Mill workshop.

New Year's Eve Formal for Men

A classic formal wear pattern is midnight-ready in R. Hanauer’s dashing and rather spirited all-silk Black/Blue Banbury Paisley Bow Tie.

When paired with an Italian-made, all-silk Navy/White Windsor Dots Pocket Square, this elegant outfit is full of movement and perhaps even a spot of mischief.

Clever and suggestive of English hunting tradition, our all-silk Navy Fox Mask Bow Tie is perfect for a New Year’s night on the town. This handsome little devil is also available as a red and olive green bow tie, and in cummerbund sets and neckties too.

We’ve paired our favorite fox with one of our most versatile accessories: the Navy Whipstitch Border Pocket Square. All cotton and hand-rolled in Italy, this square is ready to pair with every sly dog in our collection; check out our handsome versions in red and green.
