Ledbury - Official Affiliate Thread

post #1 of 398
Thread Starter 

Hi Everyone,

 

Just wanted to take a second to introduce Ledbury (www.ledbury.com).  We are just starting our affiliate thread and we are excited about being part of the community.

 

As a little background we are a ready-to-wear shirtmaker based in Richmond, Virginia.  We started the business after living 5 years in London, the last of which was spent working under a Jermyn Street tailor.   Our goal was to start an American shirtmaker whose primary focus was delivering great fit and really superb quality. 

 

Our fabrics are sourced from Italian-mills (Monti, Albini, Canclini, Luggiuno, Thomas Mason) and our shirts are made in a small European factory.  We are pretty obsessed with unique fabrics, new patterns and cuts and we will release nearly 200 styles this year that are available website (www.ledbury.com) or in our Richmond store.

 

We love feedback and are excited to hear from the Style Forum members.  To kick things off we thought that we would have Style Forum members help us design one of our upcoming Short Run Shirting Collections.

 

We will circle back soon with more details, but in the meantime, below are a handful of photos of our newest releases.

 

Thanks for including us.  We’re happy to answer any questions you may have and looking forward to starting the conversation.

 

Best,

 

Paul and Mel

I'd like to take this opportunity to welcome one of our new affiliates, and to ask any members who have used their services to post their impressions.

Cheers,

Fok.

Do you guys have a B&M presence in Richmond? Would love to drop in and make sure it was a great fit/ check out the fabrics before making a major purchase. Any option of MTM? Where are the shirts made?

Great site, and the shirts look very sharp.

We do have a showroom in Richmond. We're downtown at 117 S. 14th St, located in the same building as LaDiff. We are in the office M-F, 9-5.

 

At this time, we do not offer any MTM, but are exploring our options for inventory expansion. Our shirts are manufactured in Poland, but all fabrics are Italian-woven and all design happens in our Richmond showroom.

 

Thanks very much for the kind words! Looking forward to meeting you in our showroom!

 

Cheers,

Mel

I've looked at your site quite a few times over the past few months and really like some of colors and patterns on your shirts but haven't yet pulled the trigger. Any chance of a referral code to induce us Style Forum members who are still on the fence?

We'd be happy to offer a promo code for you all to test out our product. I've just created promo code SFINTRO25 as a $25 store credit that will run for one week. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

Nice selection of slim fit shirts.

I'm curious: do you pay attention to pattern matching, i.e. at the placket, collar, shoulder/sleeves, back yoke, cuffs and gauntlets?

Hi Wes, Thanks for asking. We do pay attention to pattern matching and try to ensure each shirt successfully lines up at the placket, collar, shoulder/sleeves, back yoke, cuffs and gauntlets.

Congratulations on becoming an SF affiliate. I've heard of the Ledbury brand name floating around and checked you guys out, and the stiff collar & v-neck thing really appealed to me. I am looking for a summer shirt possibly in reddish gingham or reddish striped but unfortunately you guys do not have anything like that on the website. Would that be a possible short-run model?

I have two of the Ledbury shirts and they are quite nice for the price. One is the pink microcheck in slim fit. It's a pretty nice shirt, good fit. I've given feedback that the site should note that the slim fit shirts have darts on the back. Otherwise, like I said, they're quite nice!

I learned about Ledbury through their styleforum ad a few weeks back have been thoroughly satisfied with my first purchase. I wish the generous promo code was posted on Monday though.... I ordered two more shirts on Monday and expect them tomorrow.

Hi there,

 

Thanks very much for the kind words about our brand. We have tried a few red ginghams in the past, one Red Parker Gingham with a button down collar and one Burgundy Parker Gingham with a spread in a previous short run collection (images below). We are potentially bringing back the Burgundy Parker to the Core Collection.

 

We will definitely look into red patterns when choosing short run fabric swatches for the SF collaboration. Thanks for the feedback! Looking forward to future development of the short run collab.

Thanks for the feedback. We are also looking into construction options to eliminate the darts in the slim fit shirts, but I will pass along your suggestion to list this information on our website. Glad you are enjoying your shirts!
