Our neckties are handmade in North Carolina. Our founder, Randy, and son, Randall Hanauer thoughtfully select the seasonal fine fabrics out of which our neckties are created. Italian silk is found in many of our neckties as well as wools, linens and cottons. Our neckties are made to be enjoyed for years and by generations of gentlemen.
Truly handmade neckties, no sewing machines are used in the process to create our neckties. It is all done by hand. Once they arrive from our North Carolina partners, our neckties are housed in our Fort Mill, South Carolina workshop. Once a necktie order is placed, it is shipped out from the workshop and on its way to the customer.
Our Dedication to American Made Neckties
Although many opt to manufacture their neckties in other countries, we believe in making our neckties right at home. If you check, most of tags on most big neckwear brands will show they are not made in America. There is a big difference between mass-manufactured products and our handmade, high quality neckties and we are dedicated to preserving this quality. Although competitors may make larger profit margins off of neckties made overseas, you can count on R. Hanauer to continue to make neckties in America for years to come.
If you see a fabric on the website that is not included in the necktie category, we may be able to create a custom, handmade necktie for you. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with custom inquiries.
When Should You Wear a Necktie?
Weddings, corporate events, cocktail parties and dates, there are so many places to sport one of our high quality ties. If you are the groom in the wedding and it is not traditional black tie, a necktie can be a sharp looking accessory for the groom and groomsmen. Our wedding neckties have been selected with wedding parties in mind. A black necktie can also be worn with a tuxedo for a formal event. Our two most popular formal neckties will suit any suit. Cocktail events and professional settings can call for a number of bow ties. Two of our favorite collections for social or professional outings are our striped neckties and printed neckties.
The History of Neckties
Like bow ties, neckties were also inspired by Croatian mercenaries during the 17th century Thirty Year War when King Louis XIII was fascinated with the mercenaries' neckwear. Although necktie styles have drastically changed in size, length and shape over the years, our neckties are 3 and 1/4th inches wide and handmade to last for years.
