The R. Hanauer Process
Each and every R. Hanauer tie is made by a talented team member in our shop. Our bow ties are made by hand and are also made to order. The specific types of silk, cotton, linen, and wool fabrics for our products are always carefully selected by Randy and Randall Hanauer, our father-and-son team. We feature English and Italian silk from renowned international mills in our collections. When the order process has officially begun, our bow ties are cut by hand to begin the artistic creation of the product. As opposed to the straight of grain, our bow tie fabric is cut on a bias to produce the best-tying bow tie on the market. Cutting on the bias allows the pattern to be cut out at a 45-degree angle to produce the gentle stretch of the fabric for the ease of tying. A bias-cut lining is in each and every one of our bow ties to ultimately ensure that the structure and shape will always remain in its best condition. We are proud and dedicated to making American-made bow ties in our hometown of Fort Mill, South Carolina.
When envisioning fall, warm golden tones, deep purples, emerald green, and brilliant shades of red often come to mind. A well-crafted fall ensemble consists of quality pieces that feature lavish fabrics, are complementary of one another, and encompass the beauty of the season, whether that is through colors, textures, or patterns. Due to the changing weather, lighter articles of clothing such as linen and cotton should be packed away. Instead, layered clothing is a must for the season, and an easy way to sport fall look that is both comfortable and conventional. Conversational prints, structural designs, and daring stripes are all exemplary choices to adorn any fall accessory, and they make for an exquisite and eye-catching addition to any form of autumn attire. A few exceptional prints and patterns for the autumn months include houndstooth and paisley, while geometric and medallion designs are also essential elements to achieve the ultimate fall styled look. When creating a styled outfit, keep in mind that the chosen accessories do not have to match one another. Instead, look for specific elements, like colors, patterns, and fabrics that nod to the staple pieces presented in the ensemble.
When dressing for the workplace during the autumn months, solid colored dress shirts paired with either a blazer or sport coat are classic choices. Any gentleman who appreciates a traditional fall look cannot go wrong with a crisp, white shirt that is accompanied by a navy blazer, or perhaps a brown or tweed sport coat. Both illustrate a professional and classic sense of style that is most appropriate for a work setting. Finish the look with a sharp, striped necktie or bow tie, and add a corresponding pocket square to emphasize the colors in the ensemble for a look that is distinct, yet suitable for the office.
With the fall months come important seasonal events, such as wedding ceremonies, as well as social gatherings, which can include cocktail parties, oyster roasts, and after work drinks with colleagues. A dark suit paired with a complementary colored shirt is most appropriate for an autumn wedding. When selecting neckwear, keep in mind that the bow tie or necktie should convey the same quality and sophistication as the selected suit. For social events, a sport coat, button-down, and patterned accessories make an expressive and bold statement that will be greatly remembered.
Fall is also the season for formal events. Dressing for a special occasion, such as a black-tie cocktail party or gala, means sporting your very best clothing. An elegant dinner jacket styled with tuxedo pants is a must; however, a gentleman can tailor the look with a colorful or patterned cummerbund and bow tie set in order to convey his own innovative style.
At R. Hanauer, our handmade bow ties, neckties, and custom accessories that are featured in our Fall 2018 Collection are the perfect fit for any gentleman that values the unfading and enticing beauty of the autumn season. Warm, fall colors and exceptionally textured neckwear and accessories take a gentleman’s look to a higher tier, while also showcasing the distinctive details of one’s own personal style, for impeccably styled fall apparel.
