About Us & Our Philosophy
Rah-Rah, Inc. was founded in 1989 by George Keane Sr. His son, George Jr., is now learning the family business and helping George Sr. continue his creative passion: providing the finest custom-made ties and scarves available.
How it began...
After many years working for one of the leading U.S. scarf & accessory design firms, George Sr. saw an opportunity to bring fashionable yet affordable custom scarves to colleges, universities, and secondary schools -- and Rah-Rah, Inc. was formed.
With the initial focus on educational institutions, the name Rah-Rah seemed appropriate. And of course, George Sr. is an enthusiastic, “Rah-Rah” kind of guy! He wanted to create fashionable custom neckwear for the institutions that people are very “Rah-Rah” about.
Soon his scarf customers began to request custom ties, too. In response, George Sr. developed a special collection of men’s ties, which artfully combined the logos and emblems from his customer’s institutions with classic tie characteristics and fabrics that keep them in style for many years.
Rah-Rah, Inc. has experienced steady growth and continues it's long-standing tradition of exceeding customer expectations.The name Rah-Rah has become synonomous with quality, value, and integrity.

- Reunion Gifts
Reunions are perfect occasions to provide people with a very pragmatic gift as a scarf and tie. Why not provide a tie and scarf as a box set to each member of your next class reunion? Not only will they love the gifts and share one with a partner, but they will be reminded of the great time they had and will look forward to wearing the tie or scarf to the next reunion as well.

They will wear your token of your appreciation proudly and have a reason to mention your institution each time they are complimented on how great they look wearing it.
