Do you plan on restocking the sutton in grey?

Hello everybody, I'm new to the forum and in my search for affordable, well fitting, quality shirts I stumbled upon ledbury. I was wondering if anyone who has purchased a shirt from them would be willing to shoot me a pm with a referral code as I am interested in trying this brand. Thanks.

Our next batch will be the Spring collection, so we will not be restocking that particular style. However, we should have several new options available.

Too bad, hopefully you'll have some spring jackets in grey or restock the grey sutton blazer next fall/winter season. Its the sole reason why I asked for Ledbury gift cards for Christmas. I may have to return them since I have enough shirts.

Can the spring jackets be worn during the summer? I'm trying to gauge the type of fabric the spring jackets will be made out of and whether the blazers are 1 or 2 season blazers.

We'll have a mix of options coming in the spring. As of now, we'll have several versatile blues returning - the hopsack and loro piana - and a few new options, including a tan linen houndstooth that would be more of a spring/summer fabric.

 

Our designer is actually meeting with our production mill in Italy later this week, so we should have more information on what is to come in upcoming weeks.

Great story...great shirts. It doesn't appear they are made (manufactured) in the USA - I read that they are manufactured in Poland? Is that correct?

Ledbury has recently begun using FedEx Smartpost which means that the item is picked up by FedEx and transferred to the US Postal Service for delivery. I'm assuming they did this to save money but evidently didn't do their homework concerning delivery time, lost packages and customer inconvenience. My last two orders since Christmas have been shipped via FedEx Smartpost and takes an extra 4 days for delivery to my post office and I have to go pick up the package because USPS does not deliver Smartpost packages to my house. Before Smartpost, when Ledbury used regular FedEx, I would receive my package the next day since I live 90 miles away. Now, the package takes a week since the package is routed from Virginia to Maryland to West Virginia and back. Also, once the package leaves FedEx, there's no responsibility if the package is lost. This was my last Ledbury order until they begin using normal FedEx again.

This is correct - all of our design happens in our Richmond location. Our fabrics are sourced from Italy and our shirts are manufactured in a small factory in Poland.

I'm sorry to hear SmartPost has been an inefficient shipping solution for you. We did decide to switch to SmartPost for East Coast deliveries, as the delivery time still falls within our shipping guarantees. We'd be happy to update your orders in the future to avoid the inconvenience of SmartPost on your end. Where are you located? There are several areas that we have found have issues with SmartPost, and have updated our shipping process to only use FedEx when shipping to said locations. We appreciate the feedback and are happy to adjust our shipping procedures to fix this unfortunate inconvenience. If you're more comfortable sharing your location via email, please feel free to email me directly: mel@ledbury.com.

I'm very interested in Ledbury. I'm eager to make my first purchase, but wanted to run a few things by the group first. 

 

I'm fairly short, how low is the second button? Would it be too low to wear a V-neck T-shirt underneath for a business casual+ environment (no khaki's, sportcoats/blazers/suits when coming into the office, wool dress slacks)?

 

I've read the whole post, and I haven't seen a definitive response as to whether or not a 32 sleeve will be available in the future. Can anyone confirm this?

 

Additionally, has anyone noticed some of the sleeves are billowy on some of the images posted in the forum? The shirts look like they have a nice tapper, but certain pictures have way too much excess fabric around the cuff. Can any one confirm this too? Is this a by-product of their sleeve shortening service? 

 

Finally, when will the Spring line be available to view/purchase?

Hi there,

 

Thanks for your interest!

 

Our second button is about 2cm lower than traditional button placement. A V-neck should fit comfortably underneath without showing at the top.

 

We are working to bring varied sleeve lengths to the collection. At this time we offer tailoring to our standard sleeve lengths for an additional $10.

 

The sleeves on our slim fit shirts are a bit more tapered than our regular fit. Some customers who prefer a looser fit occasionally comment that the regular fit sleeves are a bit billowy. However, this should not be a problem if you're sticking to our slim fit. And of course, you can always return the shirt - even if the sleeves have been tailored - if you are unhappy with fit for any reason.

 

In terms of product release, we release new product continually throughout the season opposed to launching "Spring" or "Fall" lines. That being said, our newest collection of Short Run Shirts launched today, and we expect to release another collection of 5 styles in about 2 weeks.

 

I hope I have answered your questions! If you have any others, please don't hesitate to ask.

 

Cheers!

mel
