Ledbury dress shirts

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Gents - has anyone taken the plunge and purchased any shirts from Ledbury? Price point doesn't seem too bad, but I was also looking at the BB Extra Slim fit as well (3 for $199).

would like to know as well, as these guys are based out of my hometown (Richmond, VA)

BUMP... thinking of buying one too...  Their slim fit is right around Express's Medium for me so it's almost perfect...  How the quality for the price?

I just received and wore my first Ledbury shirt. (Just bought one to try it out) No tie today.

I thought the construction was very good. There is some magic in the collars that keeps them standing - this fixes a problem that I often I have when wearing dress shirts without the tie.

I thought it fit me well. I am 6ft ~195lb - probably about 15 lbs over my ideal weight for my build and I got the regular fit- which was just about perfect for me.

The fabric isn't the silky luxury that you would get from much more expensive shirts - but it is definitely high quality.

Basically - I would say that the fabric is about what you'd expect in a $125 shirt; the fit and construction are what you'd expect in a $250 shirt.

I couldn't easily locate the country of origin for the shirt - which was a bit annoying.

I'll definitely be buying more.

I will say that the slim is very slim. I an only wear a BB slim, but the Ledbury slim was too tight. Loved the shirt though..

I find Ledbury's slim fits me rather well. I'm 5' 7", 140 lbs with an 8-inch drop. I notice that the slim version is the darted version of their regular shirt.

I have two slim Ledbury shirts. They are just as slim fitting as the pictures below portray. Definitely, they are more slim than a BB slim. I would say that the mid section of the shirt is very slender.

These are great shirts. On the website, the makers discuss the design of the collar and the "look" they desire when the top button is open.

Every Tuesday, they feature a new "short run" shirt. I'd buy every one of 'em if I wasn't so broke.

They launder beautifully.

The owner did a presentation at my school for a class on start ups. One of our alums. He trained on Jermyn St., forgot which firm. Shirts are made in Poland. He was very knowledgeable and assured me that these shirts were on par with any shirt in the 200-300 dollar retail price range because of the lower overhead of not having a brick and mortar shop.

I forgot to mention "Made in Poland". I don't think I've ever seen that on a clothing label before.

bought 7 shirts all top notch, the slim fit is the best fit for off the rack I've ever tried better than all the English brands, I'm 6 foot 3 and weigh about 85kgs, the slim fit is just right not too tight just loose enough..
I recommend!

Does anyone know of any coupon codes? Also, can anyone comment on the current quality of the shirts? Are they still as good as a couple of years ago?

Would love to try their shirts, especially the slim fit, but they do not currently make the slim fit beyond a 16.5 neck and I'm a 17. I've called and they advise they don't have any plans in the near future to be making 17 neck or higher in the slim cut. frown.gif

I tend to avoid fused collars but apparently they fuse theirs from "the outside in" so I might take the plunge and have a look-sey

Sleeve lengths are probably pretty standard, but they are too short for us long arm types. If they are going to add a shortening option they might as well start with a longer initial length.

+1. A 15.5 shirt with a "standard" 34" sleeve means I'm never shopping there (I need a solid 35" or 35 1/4). And that's a shame, I'd be willing to give a couple of their shirts a whirl.

I wonder the rationale to cut themselves short of a larger market ?
