New Online Shirtmaker - Ledbury

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Ran across an article in the Richmond paper this morning about a couple of Oxford MBA grads who are opening a new online MTM shirt operation. Their shirts run around $125 and the web site just went live. I'm tempted to give them a try just to help out a new local company.

ledbury.com

Their philosophy about fit seems to jibe closely with the SF creed:

"After years in London we acquired a healthy addiction for the tailoring of Saville Row and the shirting of Jermyn Street. On our trips back to the States we were always frustrated by the lack of offerings in menswear. Big name men's retailers created formless and baggy clothes and high fashion brands charged extortionate prices. It seemed like there was a real need for a brand that offered European quality, English fit and American style; all at an attainable price."

Looks interesting.

Interesting, but the "affordable price" is more than I pay for my H&Ks.

Their pink looks orange on my computer, and I find it off-putting that they call a normal dress shirt the "worker."

Am I missing the MTM part?

You mean the "Sale by Mail" twice a year?

No. According to the FAQ on the website, there is no MTM. The OP was just mistaken on this point.

Sorry about the MTM point. I had just assumed the MTM part based on the news article which focused on fit. Since their address is just a few blocks from me, maybe I'll see if they have any product on display or if it's just an office location.

not sure if this is proper protocol, but I'm one of the founders of Ledbury.

Richmond Style - it would be great to have you drop by the workspace. It would be nice to get your thoughts on our shirts. I think you will be pleased.

cheers,

P

i would think that H&K has a pretty competitive product. the drawback of ordering from H&K is the shipping cost--22 pound sterling.

Seward,

Can you please give us some additional details on the quality of the shirt fabrics and where they are sourced from?

Thanks!

Hey hey!!! Sounds like a plan. I'm leaving for a week-long vacation tomorrow, but will be back in town next week. Shoot me a PM with your details and I'll contact you when I'm back in town. I just got a new SLR camera -- maybe I can do an in-depth SF review.

I feel like calling their normal shirts the "Owner of the Means of Production" doesn't quite have the same zing (or, the same accuracy in terms of who is truly buying these shirts). The vast majority of people are "workers", even if they think they're not. Even if you're the CEO of Exxon, you're still technically a salaried worker (and the board can still turf your a**).
