The R. Hanauer Process
Each and every R. Hanauer tie is made by a talented and skilled team member in our workshop (all good Christmas things come from workshops!). Our Christmas bow ties are made by hand, as well as handmade to order. Randy and Randall Hanauer, our father-and-son team, hand select specific types of silk, cotton, linen, and wool fabrics for each of our products. We feature English and Italian silk from distinguished international mills in our various collections. Once the order process has begun, our bow ties are cut by hand to begin the creation of the product. Our bow tie fabric is cut on a bias, as opposed to straight on the grain, to produce the best-tying bow tie on the market. Cutting on the bias allows for 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 every one of our bow ties in order to ensure that the structure and shape will always remain in its very best condition. At R. Hanauer, we are dedicated and proud to be making American made bow ties in our hometown of Fort Mill, South Carolina.
The Statement of a Holiday Bow Tie
Why sport red and green accessories during the holidays? It seems as if these two dashing colors have always been associated with the Christmas season. From the vibrant red and green bow ties to Christmas tree bow ties and traditional tartans, our holiday collection features various unique ways to dress for festive occasions.
Christmas bow ties are the ideal accessories for a gentleman seeking a lively look to wear to a holiday party, whether the event is held at the office, or amongst one’s friends and family. Holiday bow ties are also a most excellent choice when deciding what to wear for the obligatory Christmas card, or possibly a holiday outing, such as Christmas caroling or ice skating, because they are extremely festive and lighthearted, making for a picture perfect memory to be captured and shared with loved ones. A gentleman who is clad in a Christmas bow tie is ready to celebrate the merriest of the holiday seasons in a timeless style that exudes festiveness and fun.
Festivity through Fashion
Here at R. Hanauer, we believe self expression is a key component to one’s style. While red and green are staple holiday colors, our Christmas bow ties are quite accommodating to different types of styles. From red and green polka dots, to bold stripes, and festive plaid bow ties, our Christmas bow ties can be the ultimate finishing touch to a gentleman's holiday attire.
When dressing for a Christmas party, one can pair a Christmas bow tie with complementary whites, navy, and dark greens, and can incorporate some classic attire, such as a pocket square and dinner coat. For a look that is more casual, one can wear a sport coat and solid button up shirt with their festive accessories; however, when dressing for a Christmas party, it is important to stray from wearing multiple patterns and taking away from your bold, festive bow ties. The rich reds and greens of the Christmas season are quite classic, and make for wondrous, holiday attire. At R. Hanauer, we pride ourselves on making handmade, holiday bow ties that are perfect for any type of Christmas festivity.
