Dress Like British Elite with Byron Formalwear and Accessories

Italian men may know how to wear a suit, but British men wear a tuxedo like it’s an art form. The proof is in the pudding: look at James Bond, David Gandy, and Laurence Olivier, to name a few. To emulate that sleek British sophistication, American men needn’t look any further than a tux from Byron, Britain’s best made-to-measure clothier.

Bingham’s uses Byron exclusively for formalwear because we believe they’re the best in the biz. They use high quality, luxurious fabrics, and they skillfully construct their garments with high attention to detail.

Byron is also a master of the perfect silhouette. It’s clean and trim, but it’s not tight or uncomfortable.

Finally, Byron also makes formalwear accessories—bowties, cummerbunds and stud sets—that add the final polish any evening look.

Come in and test-drive our Byron tuxedo options today. Depending on alterations, we can have a tux ready for you as soon as one week.

Eco-Friendly Down That Actually Keeps You Warm

Gentlemen, let us introduce you to a new line we are now carrying called Save the Duck.

duck

Gentleman, Duck; Duck, Gentlemen.

Save the Duck is a new line of outerwear for guys who love the warmth and lightness of down but are conscious of their use of animal products.

Save the Duck has engineered what they call (and by “call” we mean “trademarked”) “plumtech,” a synthetic insulation that functions like real down. It’s just as fluffy, lightweight and, most importantly, warm. But since it isn’t real down, it dries fast and cleans easily. It’s also amphibian-friendly.

The more affordable sticker price will make you feel a little more warm and fuzzy too, FYI.

So, Save the Duck offers the best of both worlds—synthetic and real down—and is a must-have addition to your fall wardrobe.

But really, technology like this needs to be seen to be believed, so we invite you to come into Binghams today and see the cutting-edge technology for yourself.

We carry Save the Duck’s quilted jackets and vests in several different colors, and their heat-sealed seam rain jacket.

Save the Duck quilted jackets in navy, red and brown.

A Subtle Way to Show Your True Colors: Robert Graham Socks

Robert Graham isn’t for every guy. We know. We sell it proudly, but we also understand the terrified look on a guy’s face when he sees contrasting explosions of paisley and stripes on a dress shirt. This doesn’t mean he’s anti-fun, though. Some guys just prefer a more measured approach to statement pieces. So for these guys, we suggest Robert Graham socks.

They have all the personality of a Robert Graham shirt or sweater, but in a more palatable dose. You can wear a pair of, say, blue and red striped socks with a charcoal grey suit or trousers, and they’ll add a perfectly measured amount of pop to an otherwise ordinary outfit.

“Fun socks are great because they only show when you sit down or cross your legs,” explains Dave Danuser, owner of Binghams. “Not only does it add personality, but that little pop adds a level of sophistication and attention to detail to your look, which are qualities you really want noticed.”

Danuser adds that Robert Graham socks are perfect for the guy looking for a middle ground between a monochrome ensemble and the wild, Robert Graham peacock aesthetic.

So, gentlemen, if you’re a guy looking for a subtle way to show your true colors, come check out Binghams’ enormous selection of patterned socks by Robert Graham. They run the gamut from simple stripes to paisley perfection, so we’re sure we have a pair that suits you.

And just so you know, we also have a full selection of patterned socks by Lorenzo and Unplugged. Check them out:

We mustache you a question: aren’t these socks great?

Come into Binghams today for our over-the-top, cream-of-the-crop selection of fun socks. We’re located here.

You can’t see it from the picture, but the pants have a sleek, flat front design and are 100% cotton.

As for the button down shirt, it’s 100% cotton and has a twill weave, so it’s super soft and dressy. It is also wrinkle resistant (that’s a win right there. For more no-iron shirts, click here) and thus travels well, so you’ll look on-point no matter where you are in the world.

It also has a small Mizzou tiger logo on the left chest pocket, so that you’ll tastefully communicate your school pride in any professional setting.

Terrific Trousers: Why You’ll Love Meyer Pants

Meyer pants have been flying off our shelves recently, so we thought we’d share with you, and all the men of Columbia, Missouri, why these pants are so fantastic.

 1. They have the perfect trim fit

Nowadays slim is in, but many men still have reservations about the discomfort of close-fitting trousers. With Meyer pants, you needn’t worry about your voice going up an octave—you’ll be as comfortable as you are fashionable.

2. Meyer pants transition well

Meyer pants are what we like to call “bridge” pants. They can be dressy, casual and everything in between. Wear them with a dress shirt and sweater at the office, then a chambray shirt with rolled up sleeves for a weekend drive.

 3. They’re REALLY well made

Meyer, a German company, manufacturers all their pants in Europe and use only fair-trade cotton, sourced from vendors throughout the world. Meyer uses a combination of machine and hand to construct their pants, and employs their very own laundry system.

Of course, to get the best sense of Meyer’s fit, quality and aesthetic, you need to see it in action. Check out their Fall 2015 promo video:
