Hi there, and welcome to Binghams’ new blog. We’re glad you’re here.
While this blog is new, Binghams is not. We’ve been in the specialty menswear business for 34 years, successfully helping the men of Columbia, Missouri find or polish their personal style, craft their perfect suit, and find the best, high-quality apparel fit for a guy with superior sartorial taste.
Since we are all about personal service at Binghams, we are excited to have this new, personal platform to share our love of all things menswear with you. Here we plan to discuss the ins and outs of men’s fashion, and highlight our favorite brands and products.
With that said, let’s get right to it. Our first order of business: outdoor wear.
Fall is just around the corner, and it’s the perfect season for outdoor wear, or sportswear. Cozy flannel shirts, warm thermal jackets, and sturdy trousers are all items you need when leaves change and the air gets a little cooler.
But don’t worry—khaki cargo pants and marshmallow jackets aren’t what we’re talking about. Nowadays, outdoor wear is taking on a more sophisticated, refined look, indicative of the dress-up cycle America has been in for the past several years.
The fit of flannel shirts are trimmer and more flattering, while thermal jackets look more country aristocrat and less marshmallow-y (marshmallows are for roasting by the fire, not wearing by the fire, right?).
One brand we carry that exemplifies sophisticated outdoor wear is Barbour, a British line of men’s and women’s sportswear that exudes British countryside sophistication, and is known for its good looks and practicality. Right now, we are carrying Barbour’s famous waxed thorn-proof hunting jackets, plaid scarfs, sport shirts, vests, sweaters and caps.
Here’s a look at a Barbour pullover and hunting jacket:
Another outdoor wear brand we just got in at Binghams (and already love) is Victorinox. You might know Victorinox as the creator of the original Swiss army knife, and while you can’t compare a Swiss army knife with a button down shirt, you can assume that Victorinox applies the same high standards to its clothing as it does its world-renowned knives.
Victorinox is the epitome of classic. The brand isn’t known for making waves and following trends, but that’s why we love it. Victorinox is for the guy who loves timeless, high-quality apparel. Right now Binghams has their popular light-weight jackets, vests, and sweaters.
