The R. Hanauer Process
At R. Hanauer, our bow ties are all handmade, as well as made to order, in our workshop by our dedicated and talented team members. An interesting fact about R. Hanauer is that it is owned and run by our father and son team, Randy and Randall Hanauer in Fort Mill, South Carolina. The Hanauer men make it their priority to be extremely hands-on with the creation process, in fact, they carefully select the types of fabrics and materials that are used to make our products. The fabrics that make up our products come from well-known mills around the world, and we specifically specialize in featuring Italian and English silk in many of our ties.
Once you have completed and placed your order, the creation process begins on our end. The beginning of the creation process starts when your tie is taken to the cutting table to be cut by hand by a member of our hardworking team. Oftentimes, you will find that companies cut on the straight of grain to make their ties; however, we choose to cut on a bias to produce a bow tie that is easy to tie, but also looks sharp and refined. Cutting on a bias means that the pattern will be cut out at a forty-five-degree angle to produce the gentle stretch of the fabric, resulting in the ease of tying. An interior lining in the product helps the structure keep its shape, meaning that we can ensure that each and every one of our bow ties will stay in its very best condition. Finally, when your product is completed, we will wrap your bow tie up in one of our signature R. Hanauer boxes, and we will send it directly to you for many years of good use. We’re proud to create handmade green bow ties, neckties, cummerbund sets and pocket squares in our hometown of Fort Mill, South Carolina.
The History of the Color Green
Green is often associated with the symbolism of rebirth and life. During the very beginning of the modern era in Europe, the color green was used to differentiate the merchant class, the individuals who fell under the upper level of the working class, and the top tier of the elite from the highest level of nobility and royalty. They wore green to symbolize that they were of a wealthy stature, but that they were not of noble birth. Today, many people associate the color green as a sign of affirmation and good fortune. The color green radiates a sense of hope and good health, and it provides a fresh perspective to any classic ensemble.
The Meaning of Green
The first thing most people think of when they hear the word green is nature. From freshly cut grass to lush flowers, the color green represents growth, new life, and fertility. Nature might be the first thing that comes to mind for some people; however, conversely, many associate the color green with money and wealth.
Green can bring peace and provide a soothing effect for many individuals, and many also believe that the color green brings good fortune and good luck to the individual that wears it. A gentleman that sports the color green radiates positive energy, and it is said that those who wear the color are optimistic and quite confident.
When to Wear a Green Bow Tie
Green bow ties are an excellent addition to any type of outfit. Due to the various shades of the color, green can be worn with either casual outfits or formal attire. Holidays like Christmas, St. Patrick’s Day, and Mardi Gras are all perfect occasions to sport bow ties that feature the color green. During the spring months, and especially around Easter time, a light green bow tie would be the ultimate accessory to feature with a crisp, white button down and khaki pants. A green bow tie makes a gentleman appear approachable and trustworthy.
Green bow ties can be worn in a professional setting, or during a casual outing. You could even style your green bow for a day on the fairways watching golf and relaxing amongst friends.
At R. Hanauer, we offer a wide and diverse selection of green bow ties, each bringing something new and exciting to an ensemble. We offer a variety of green bows featuring bold stripes, fun polka dots, elegant tartans, fresh florals, and so many more.
