Introducing: Ledbury

Introducing: Ledbury

We have a new line here at Binghams in Columbia, Missouri, and we think you’ll love it.

Gents, meet Ledbury.

Ledbury is a Virginia-based menswear company that makes high-quality clothing for any occasion. We decided to carry Ledbury because of its expert craftsmanship, European fabrics, and sophisticated silhouettes.

Check it out on this linen shirt that we love:

The second button at the neckline is lower than usual, which gives it a flattering v-shape.

Ledbury has made the second button lower on all its summer shirts, so you you’ll get the same great shape with their lightweight cotton shirts.

Did we mention that Ledbury has excellent gingham patterns?

Mix and match any of these shirts with Meyer pants and you’ll have the perfect summer wardrobe. You can wear them at wedding, to a backyard barbecue, and yes, the office too.

Ledbury makes great dress shirts:

Turns heads this fall in Columbia, Missouri with vests, jackets and shirts from Barbour, a British clothing company known for chic outdoorwear.

“Elevated sportswear is going to big again this fall,” says Dave Danuser, owner of Binghams. “Quilted down vests, hunting jackets, fabrics with a little technology incorporated in them, that sort of thing.”

Barbour is Binghams favorite outdoorwear brand because its pieces are well made and we like channeling English countryside sophistication.

Barbour held a Fall & Winter 2016 show during the Menswear Fashion Week in London back in January, and New York magazine captured a few shots of the collection.

Check out the photos of the collection here

We’re so excited.

Binghams carries the best selection of Barbour in the Columbia, Missouri area, so if you’re in the market for fine outdoorwear, visit us first. But hurry! Customers love Barbour as much as we do, so our stock won’t last long.

We’re located here. We look forward to seeing you.

We just can’t get enough of Meyer pants. They’re turning out to be the pant of the season here in Columbia, and we can barely keep them on our shelves.

Why do guys love Meyer pants so much?

For one thing, they’re a perfect bridge pant, which means you can wear them for work and play. Elevate them with a button up shirt for the office, and then take it down a notch with a nice white tee for the weekend.

They’re also really high quality. Meyer is a German company, and all of their clothing is made in Europe. The process is a 50-50 split between hand and machine, and they use their own unique laundry system to give their pants distinct texture and wash.

Come see what the fuss is all about by stopping into Binghams and trying on a few pairs. Meyer just released their spring and summer 2016 collection, which you can preview in the video below:

Stop into Binghams today and get yourself a few pairs of Meyer pants. We promise, you’ll love them.

Performance Fabrics Aren’t Just for the Golf Course Anymore

Performance Fabrics Aren’t Just for the Golf Course Anymore

A new trend that we’re all about right now is performance fabrics in everyday menswear. It’s warming up in Columbia, Missouri, and guys need clothes that they can move around in, and that will keep them cool.

Think button-up shirts that wick moisture and are wrinkle resistant, and socks that keep you from getting swamp feet.

“Not only is performance fabric in regular clothing a great idea, especially if you bike to work or just tend to sweat a lot, but it allows for better work-life balance,” says Dave Danuser, owner of Binghams. “It allows you transition comfortably from one thing to the next. You can bike or walk to work without having to change once you get to the office.”

Southern Tide, Peter Millar and Robert Graham are our favorites right now for performance luxury clothing, and we’re carrying them in the store. We’ve got golf shirts, polos, pants and t-shirts.

What’s New With Robert Talbott for Spring 2016

What’s New With Robert Talbott for Spring 2016

Here’s a look at what’s new for Spring 2016 from Robert Talbott:

Coppley Delivers the Best Bang for Your Buck for Custom

Coppley Delivers the Best Bang for Your Buck for Custom

 

Custom clothing runs the gamut from the uber lux Italian suit handcrafted in Naples, to the paper-thin, short-lived dress shirts churned out by machine in China. A lot of men think custom clothing is either the former ($22k for a suit, anyone?) or the latter, and don’t realize there are fantastic options between the two extremes.

 

One such option is Coppley, the best custom clothing maker in North America.

 

Coppley, a Canadian brand, is both affordable and high quality—one does not preclude the other, and is Binghams’ best-selling made-to-measure brand for this reason.

 

Not only is Coppley high quality, it’s also fast. They pioneered the making of a made-to-measure suit in just seven days, and are among the best in the biz when it comes to quickly turning around a suit (or a sport coat, pants or jacket) that you love.

 

Coppley can accommodate any cut or size and you choose from more than 400 fine fabrics. If you’re buying a suit or jacket, we’ll help you decide on vents, buttons, lapel style and more.

 

If you want a suit that fits perfectly and looks like a million dollars (but doesn’t cost it), come see us at Binghams. We have several pricing options and will work with you to find a suit that fits you and your budget.

 

Also, Coppley’s newest spring 2016 looks will be on display during next month’s trunk show on May 6-7, 2016 (more details to come). Special pricing will be available during the show, so mark your calendar.

Southern Tide’s New Summer Looks Are Here

Southern Tide’s New Summer Looks Are Here

 

Southern Tide is one of our favorite brands for summer in Columbia, Missouri. It’s the perfect blend of preppy and casual, and they put stretch fabric in a lot of their clothing, so it’s super comfortable.

 

Southern Tide just released their summer 2016 styles, and while there are lots of things in the collection to admire, the piece we love most is their new fishing shirt:

Not only is this shirt classy, it’s also made of a quick-dry fabric and has a mesh vent in the back that’ll keep you cool. The Velcro chest pockets are perfect for carrying your gear.

 

The sleeves can be unbuttoned and rolled down to full arm length, for when the sun goes down and you need a little extra warmth, or you want a more formal look.

 

The fishing shirt is available in a white, coral and blue check (blue check pictured), solid navy and several plaid combinations. We stock most and can special-order what we don’t have in the store.

 

We also carry Southern Tide’s comfortable flip flops, awesome beach towels and refreshing swimming trunks. All you need are some Ray Bans and you’ll be good to go for the season.

 

Come into Binghams today to see our selection of Southern Tide’s latest summer apparel. We’d love to see you.
