Shop Big in a Small Way This Saturday at Bingham’s

Get ready to be delighted and taken care of at local favorite Bingham’s this Saturday, November 30, during Small Business Saturday. Shop all of your favorite brands like Robert Graham, Peter Millar, Ballin and Martin Dingman. Stock up for yourself or the favorite gent on your list. When it comes to a special sale day like this, we go big at Bingham’s.

Speaking of shopping big, who wants to be in a crowded big-box store during the biggest sale weekend of the year, where you know you won’t receive any personal shopping attention, you’ll be cranky and warm from walking between your parked car in the crowded lot and on (finally!) to the floor that carries menswear. Even then, you won’t be guaranteed that your long wait in the checkout line will be worth the wait in clothing you bought — clothing of questionable quality. 

Or if you’re opting for doing all of your shopping online, who says you’ll like the way that new sweater feels around your neck? Or it’s not until you tear open the packaging that you realize the navy blue checked shirt you bought actually appears more green than blue. Buy slacks for the office online? We don’t recommend it. 

Shopping local at Bingham’s during Small Business Saturday is an experience unlike anything you’ll find in a big-box store or on a virtual cart while you’re binging on Netflix. You see smiling faces who are there to help. You get help finding your size in the half-zip sweater you’ve had your eye on. You are advised on the patterned shirt to wear under a new sport coat. You pick a more tailored suit, thanks to the courage you’ve mustered from the encouraging Bingham’s staff. 

See you at Bingham’s this Saturday, November 30, and thank you for shopping small! 

Some Rules Are Meant to Be Broken

Work place style has evolved, there’s no doubt about that. Whether you work at a law firm, in a doctor’s office, or are part of the financial or professional services industries or you’re a teacher, the guidelines for workplace dress are drastically different than they were 10 years ago. Business casual rules were shattered years ago and if you’re unsure what’s de rigeur at the moment, visit us at Bingham’s in Columbia and we’ll help you out. 

What they wore then: A suit with shoulder pads big enough on which to land a plane, a solid-colored shirt and tie. 

What you wear now: Comfortable, form-fitting sport coat from Byron over a casual button-down patterned shirt by Eton or David Donahue with a pair of neat jeans. No holes.  ‘

What they wore then: Short-sleeve shirts in the summer with a tie and dress slacks. Sorry to bring back terribly vivid memories. 

What you wear now: An untucked shirt from johnnie-O, a half-zip coordinating pullover and chinos by 34 Heritage. Skip the pocket protector


What they wore then: A too-big V-neck sweater, tie and solid-colored button down shirt. Pleated khakis down below. 

What you wear now: Pants with pleats should find their way into your closet if you have larger legs or carry more weight around your midsection. Otherwise, pleats shouldn’t be having a moment in your wardrobe, gentlemen. Flat-front pants are flattering on slim men of all ages and are quite flattering. Paired with a cashmere sweater and vibrantly patterned shirt, you’ll be ready to take a seat at the conference room table in this getup. 


What they wore then: Lace-up dress shoes or stodgy and stiff leather loafers.

What you wear now: Refined sneakers or slip-on shoes from Trask will make you feel like you’re walking around the office on air.  

The staff at Bingham’s believes the laidback look is here to stay, at least for a while. Stop in at our store and we’ll help you put some casual clothing options to work for you. See you soon!

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.
