Be Bold With Bingham’s New Spring Selection of Robert Graham Shirts

No one mixes patterns better than Robert Graham

As we mentioned in our previous post, spring is the season for pattern mixing. In that post we explained to how to mix patterns on your own — manually, if you will – so today we’re giving you the automatic pattern-mixing option. (A different model, same fashion horsepower.)

Robert Graham is a bold line of men’s shirts that takes the thinking out of mixing patterns. The shirts have contrasting cuffs and collars, so all you have to do is roll up your sleeves and boom, you’ve got a bold spring look.

Guide to Pattern Mixing

How to Pattern Mix for Spring

Spring brings a much needed a burst of color and patterns. Make them work together with our guide to pattern mixing

Pattern Shirts from Peter Millar

Spring is the season for pattern mixing. After a long winter of grays and blacks, we yearn to lighten things up with bright colors and bold patterns. But we’re careful to not go too crazy—we don’t want to look like we got dressed in the dark. Here are our tips for pattern mixing like a street-style pro.

1. The colors of your bigger pieces should be more subdued

Your jacket and shirt comprise the largest physical spaces on your body, so if you wear a neon orange sport coat, for example, you may take someone’s eye out. Save the boldest colors for your accessories, like your tie or pocket square.

2. Combine complimentary prints

It’s possible to wear more than one pattern at time, as long as the patterns compliment each other. Choose patterns that have different shapes (e.g. stripes with polka dots) or lines (one fun, one relaxed). This will create contrast between your pieces. Also, one pattern should be calmer than the other, to keep your look sophisticated.

3. Stay on one end of the color spectrum

Another key to proper pattern mixing involves sticking to one color family. For instance, if you want to wear a bright yellow tie, pair it with pieces that are also warm colors. Similarly, if you want to sport your favorite blue sport coat, make sure everything else is a cool color.

*Note that gray is a great chameleon and can be matched with warm and cool tones.

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.
