dcamoore,
 
We've placed an order with our manufacturers for additional french cuff shirts. These french cuff shirts should be online this spring but I'll post an update here when the shipment arrives so you'll be the first to know.

Do you mind posting or PMing your chest measurement? I may be able to offer a few suggestions for slimmer OTR shirts.
 
Tavish, intern

Thanks, Tavish.

 

My chest is a 38, waist is a 31. I generally wear sleeve lengths of 35-35.5 depending on the brand. I like a pretty tight tuck, so I always get my shirts darted to minimize excess around the torso.

 

One thing I forgot to mention in my last post is that Ledbury customer service was top notch. I forgot to enter my discount code (10% off first purchase) when I made my order. I emailed customer service, and I had a helpful reply within a couple of minutes!

Thank you!  Looking forward to seeing what options become available.

I just wanna say you guys are straight up assholes for running the blue pindot and grey herringbone shirts in the same short run collection. Now, I have to figure out how to justify getting both. Not cool, dudes.

I know the feeling! I will PM you a referral code good for $25 off your first purchase.

I wanted to post a review of my first purchase of a Ledbury shirt - White, Slim, Ledbury Spread. I haven't worn it for a full day, but have tried it on right out of the box, after a laundry cycle, and after an ironing. I'm very pleased with my purchase thus far. The fabric is very nice, and the collar is fantastic for staying up straight. The second button is not that far down the shirt as I had feared, it's maybe just a hair further south than a Brooks Brothers shirt, yet the way the collar stands up the shirt gives a whole new appearance. The sizing (for me) is just a little bigger than a Brooks Brothers Extra Slim, and ever so slightly smaller than a Nordstrom Trim fit. I don't think I will need to tailor the shirt, maybe a wash and dry or two will slim it up a bit more. 

 

My only critique so far is that the neck is smaller than most 15" shirts I have, and I've owned or tried on many many shirts. The button feels it is about 0.25" smaller than it should be. If you don't button your shirts to wear with a tie, then this isn't a problem. I will need to take it to the tailor to get the neck button moved to near the edge of the shirt for additional comfort. 

 

One additional area that seems a bit off is the cuffs. They feel just a little bit flimsy, not overly so, but not as firm as say a Brooks Brothers shirt. 

 

Overall, I'm still happy with the shirt and will most likely buy a few more in the future.

Anyone have a referral code I could use?  Looking to pick up the blue pindot.

wsumarine,

I see. My best OTR recommendation would be Gitman Vintage or Band of Outsiders. Both brands are slim but likely too casual for your tastes. If it's any consolation, a slimmer fit is in the works for this year.

Thank you for the kind words regarding our customer service. I'll let the team know.

johnbond8459,

Thank you for the feedback regarding our White Fine Twill Spread. We'll have to look into improving those cuffs for you. Do you mind posting a fit pic to share on the forum?

17.5 collar. As I'm not buttoning it I could get away with 17 but also a 46 chest
