Ledbury dress shirtspost #1 of 319/1/10 at 4:36pmThread Starter
Styleforum Top Pickspost #2 of 319/1/10 at 7:28pmpost #3 of 319/17/11 at 4:30pmpost #4 of 3111/23/11 at 5:38pmI 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.post #5 of 3111/24/11 at 3:20pmpost #6 of 3111/24/11 at 4:14pmQuote:
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.post #7 of 3111/24/11 at 6:50pmI 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.
Blue Fine Twill Workerpost #8 of 3111/24/11 at 7:16pmThe 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.post #9 of 3111/25/11 at 2:38amQuote:Originally Posted by Another New Yorker

I forgot to mention "Made in Poland". I don't think I've ever seen that on a clothing label before.post #10 of 316/6/12 at 2:26pmpost #11 of 316/23/12 at 4:22ampost #12 of 316/23/12 at 8:04pmpost #13 of 316/23/12 at 8:56pmpost #14 of 316/23/12 at 10:04pmpost #15 of 316/24/12 at 2:15pmQuote:
+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 ?
