Ledbury - Official Affiliate Thread - Page 17

post #241 of 409
Decided to take the plunge and try the blue fine twill spread collar in the classic fit. After purchasing a few Borrellis that fit in the waist but just don't work for my shoulders, I figured I would give Ledbury a try.

I received my first Ledbury a few days ago. The fit of the slim shirt is very good except for the neck. I agree with the above poster that it is smaller than the listed size. My 15 1/2" shirt measures out to approximately 15 3/8". Wearable with a tie, but not ideal. Hopefully this will be corrected in future runs.

Agree, I'm not able to wear ties with Ledbury shirts because the neck is smaller than the labeled size. I wear a 16.5 and the neck size is 16.25.

I remeasured the neck after ironing. It is approximately 15.25". I probably won't order another shirt until this issue is addressed.

I currently have 12-13 Ledbury shirts that I can only wear as casual shirts since the neck is a little small. Its a good thing that I don't have to wear a tie to work everyday and the reason why I hold on to my Brooks Brothers dress shirts.

I've been interested in trying Ledbury for a while now, but this feedback is rather off-putting. As was the fact that when I used the interactive "what fit am I?" feature on their website, it told me to buy a half size smaller than my neck size. That's not very helpful, as I'd most likely be interested in a shirt I'd wear with a tie.

Also, the Ledbury banner ads here on SF aren't helping much, with the ridiculous pulling/wrinkling extending from the first buttoned button upward and outward to the shoulders. Seriously, those pics look like someone's online MTM-gone-wrong. Like I said, I'm interested in giving Ledbury a shot, but seems like they've got some serious fit/sizing issues to sort out.

Flyswatter,

 

Thanks for the feedback regarding the "What Fit Am I?" feature and our banner ads. I'll let our design team know. As for our shirts' fit, I can personally size you pending your measurements. Please let me know.

I don't believe the fitting guide is a very accurate tool, so I look at the shirt sizing chart. I normally wear a slim fit in Brooks Brothers dress shirts and a regular fit in Ledbury shirts. I'm finding the neck measurements to be inconsistent because today, I'm wearing the red henly stripe shirt and the neck fits perfect. Looks so good and perfect, I'm thinking of buying the same shirt in a the navy and purple. My blue worker shirt fits nicely with a tie too.

I didn't pay much attention to the banner ads but you're correct.

I'm waiting on the neck sizing to be fixed before I purchase another shirt at Ledbury. It amazes me that removing darts is a higher priority than having an accurate neck size. If I move up a neck size the perfect measurements of my current shirt will all be out of whack. 

 

Ledbury - please let us know more on if you plan on increasing neck sizes to reflect actual sizes. 

 

Great shirts non the less if you have don't have to wear a tie.

johnbond8459,
 
I appreciate your feedback. Quality and fit comprise Ledbury's core and each of your responses guide these principles. We prioritized darts because we received feedback regarding our slim fit production process.  Rest assured, I notified the production director in order to remedy this issue.

Whoops! Was just about to buy another shirt with the coupon I got from taking the survey, only to find out it expired on Friday! Oh well, with furloughs coming I should probably hold off anyway.

My Ledbury shirt came in so here are my impressions. The quality of the shirt is top notch. The shoulders fit perfectly and the collar measurements were spot on (16.5 measured 16.5). The fabric had a great feel and I loved the spread collar. The reason I have to send the shirt back was that there was way too much fabric in the arms. I had to purchase the regular fit since the shoulders on the slim fit are way too narrow for me. I figured I would have to slim it further around the torso but in this case, the arms would never work. Based on the amazing customer service and the quality of the shirt, if they ever made a more athletic fit, I would purchase in a heartbeat.

mikej77,

Thank you for your apt review. I appreciate your honesty and will share your feedback with our customer service team. Shirts aside, I hope you'll continue to engage with our brand. If you don't mind my asking, which shirts currently fit your athletic build?

I have not had too much luck with any off the rack shirts. I have several Borrelli's that fit somewhat decent after a bit of waist suppression but even with those, the shoulders are slightly tight. I loved everything about the Ledbury shit except for the excess fabric on the arms, however I understand that with the regular fit, there is a certain body type that you are marketing for.

mikej77,

 

Thanks for understanding. I've had sleeves tapered in the past for around $10. Have you looked into MTM?
