The R. Hanauer Process
At R. Hanauer, our bow ties and menswear accessories are made locally in our workshop that resides in Fort Mill, South Carolina. Our talented team is dedicated to creating bow ties that are made by hand with precision and care, as well as made to order. Randy and Randall Hanauer, our father and son team and the names behind R. Hanauer, make it their priority to always find ways to be involved in the creation process. Both gentleman carefully select the types of fabrics and materials that are used for our products. At R. Hanauer, our collections specialize in featuring both Italian and English silk from high-end, international mills to create our ties and accessories.
To begin the R. Hanauer process, our bow ties are first cut by hand on the table to initiate the creation of the specific product. In order to produce the best-tying bow tie on the market, we choose to cut on a bias in order to create an effortless tie that looks sharp and pristine. This way of cutting will ensure that the pattern will be cut out at a 45-degree angle to produce the gentle stretch of the fabric, while also prioritizing the ease of tying. Due to the intricate steps that are taken in our creation process, we can guarantee that the structure and shape of your bow tie will remain in its very best condition. We are proud to create handmade bow ties in our hometown of Fort Mill, South Carolina.

The History of the Color Red
The color red holds quite a rich history. In fact, the use of the color red dates as far back as the prehistoric era, and it is one of the very first recorded colors to be utilized for the purpose of artistic creation. Red is known to be a color of great success and good fortune for many throughout history. It was the color of victory during battles, where warriors would paint their faces and bodies with the color, and it also represented those of noble birth during the Renaissance period. Red was a highly sought after color, and it was often used for elegant tapestries, costumes, and even extravagant art pieces, such as pottery and paintings.
Today, many equate the color red with warmth, courage, love, and passion. While red is commonly associated with holidays such as Valentine’s Day, due to its connection with the feelings of love and passion, many also recognize that red is a color of sacrifice, integrity, and patriotism.
The Meaning of the Color Red
Psychology shows that colors can actually make an impact on our emotions and influence how we make assumptions based on what we see before us. For example, if a gentleman were to wear a bright, red bow tie to an important business meeting it might appear to another individual that he is an excellent leader who possesses a strong sense of determination and has an air of confidence about him. Red is often viewed as a color of strength, intensity, and courageousness. Often, when an individual is seeking to make a statement, he or she will wear some sort of red ensemble because it commands attention due to its vibrant and boisterous nature.
When to Wear a Red Bow Tie
From Christmas affairs to Fourth of July cookouts, a red bow tie is perfect for holiday attire. A red bow would be an excellent addition for the yearly Christmas card photoshoot ensemble, or even the finishing touch to a gentleman’s Valentine’s Day date night attire.
Since the color red symbolizes bravery and courageousness, adding a red bow tie to an outfit is a great way to feel confident and sophisticated while dressing for a job interview or perhaps an important presentation at work. An ensemble featuring the bold color can make a powerful statement that illustrates assertiveness, perseverance, and poise.
