The R. Hanauer Process
R. Hanauer’s bow ties are all made in the workshop by hand and to order from our hardworking team. Our father and son team Randy and Randall Hanauer always carefully select the types of fabrics and materials for our products. We specialize in featuring Italian and English silk in our ties. After the order process has begun, ties are cut on the table by hand. While some companies cut on the straight of grain to make their ties, we choose to cut on a bias to produce the best-tying bow tie on the market. This means that the pattern will be cut out at a 45-degree angle to produce the gentle stretch of the fabric and ease of tying. An interior lining also ensures that the structure and shape of each bow tie will stay in its best condition. We’re proud to create handmade blue bow ties, neckties and cummerbund sets in our hometown of Fort Mill, South Carolina.
The History of the Color Blue
Historically, the color blue was very unique because it wasn’t seen in nature as much as greens or yellows. Blue is now considered a very standard color base, yet the word “blue” didn’t even exist in Greek times. Close to 6,000 years ago is when humans began to develop blue colorants from lapis, a precious stone. Lapis is a big contributor to the history of the color. It originated in Afghanistan and was traded in Egypt. The bright blue color of the mineral is what attracted the Egyptians. Lapis was combined with other ingredients, such as calcium and limestone and eventually produced various blue pigments. This is when the Egyptian word for "blue” was created.
The Meaning of Blue
There are deeper and more psychological meanings behind everything, even colors. Through its many shades, blue is known to have an impact on mood and emotion as well as aesthetic. If you took businesses in consideration, blue is utilized in logos and designs because they are proven to be serene and visually appealing. Many people associate feelings of calmness and peacefulness with the color blue. This is likely because we can easily imagine an open and endless clear blue sky or the pure waters of the ocean.
It is safe to say that colors have a tremendous impact on our clothing decisions. Color scheme personalities exist to help describe people and even the choices that they make in fashion. If your favorite color were blue, it could suggest that you are conservative and trusting of others. Blue is one of the most popular of colors, especially being a number one pick when it comes to men. Perhaps a contribution to this trend is because blue is seen as the most masculine color, aside from black. In addition to bringing on feelings of strength and serenity, blue can be a symbol of creativity. We hope a gentleman feels he is both himself and one-of-a-kind when wearing a blue R. Hanauer bow tie.
When to Wear a Blue Bow Tie
When it comes to applying these color personalities in a wardrobe, wearing a blue bow tie can help a gentleman seem more calm and approachable. It illustrates a traditional value but can contain a unique twist. A simple color choice of blue can make others more comfortable and communicative at an event. If one were to be at a social outing, it is important to be open visually while conversing with others. This color is a sign of trustworthiness, loyalty, and stability which is a good thing to keep in mind when picking an outfit for a certain occasion.
Blue bow ties typically encompass a classic and professional feel and can be worn in a casual or professional business environment, especially at client meetings or during a public speaking event. A sky or baby blue can be softer yet inviting, while a cobalt or royal blue can help call for more attention and flair. Many men like to experiment with their fashion pairings, so nothing is completely off the table when choosing the right bow tie for an outfit.
We offer over one-hundred creative options in our collection of blue bow ties, each special in their own way. Gentlemen have the freedom to choose charming and exclusive designs of polka dots, floral, plaid, or even solid blue bow ties.
