The fashion, culture, and other musings of our beloved Holy City
A store worth a walkthrough
On a flâneur down King street south of the crowded tourist and college area you’ll run into some incredible store fronts. One store you must visit is Ben Silver. Walk into the store and you’ll feel like you should have a drink and cigar in hand. The classic store takes you back in time. The clothing is beautiful and crafted to last a lifetime. The walls are lined with photos of celebrities like Cary Grant or thank-you notes from President Reagan. There are cases of beautiful blazer buttons. Walking deeper into the store you’ll see beautiful silk gentlemen’s and bow ties. If you appreciate classic toiletries their collection of Geo F. Trumper is a great find. Shelves of shoes are complemented by tuxedo gilded mannequins. In the back there is a section for the excellent collection of women’s ware.
“We are the epitome of the elegant fine haberdasher that once could be found in the Main Streets of America, but now exists only on London’s Savile Row. We welcome you to visit us in our beautiful shop in Charleston, our cherished city; but, if you are unable to stop in our 19th century headquarters on historic King Street, we invite you to browse our site to discover the best of Ben Silver.”
