post #256 of 409
Popped into Ledbury Saturday afternoon with a buddy who was looking for work shirts. I'm hard to fit OTR, so I just looked at the knit ties and belts, but didn't buy any. FYI, the clerk said Ledbury is expanding into sweaters and pants soon. In fact, I even had the chance to try on a pair of pants. The fit was perfect for me, but the clerk told me they're looking into the slimming the legs more. Frankly, I think that's a mistake. I'm tall, thin, and like to wear my pants slim, but not skinny. I think slimming from the knee down will makes the pants too skinny.

Matty, 
 
Thanks for stopping by our retail space. I'm glad to hear you enjoyed the sample pair you tried on. Were you able to make it to our party by chance? If not here are some photos from the night:

Spring just arrived but summer is already on our minds and our playlists. Catch a break and check out our surf-inspired mix and second city-based Short Run

Hey Ledbury, your new ties are pretty nice looking, but damn, why'd you have to make them 3 inches? If they were 3.5, I'd definitely be interested in a few, and I'm sure I'm not alone in this sentiment.

Ledbury,

As a customer (I have 4 of your shirts now), I will say you should expand your DOUBLE CUFF shirt offerings. The fabrics are nice, the collar is nice, the fit is nice, but I wear DOUBLE CUFFS. I'm not sure why you have such an anemic collection of them. Look at all the other shirt sellers--Hilditch & Key, Turnbull, even lower end Charles Tyrwhitt--they all offer DOUBLE CUFF shirts. You have like 1 non-white/blue. I'd work on that before you expand to sweaters.

On your ties--if you want customers around here, and want to charge $95 for a tie, they had better be self-tipped or un-tipped. Cheap "filler" silk-tipped ties are not SF-friendly.

Agree...lots of quality tie makers in the same ballpark. Would love to see a Ledbury tie dissected.

EBugatti,

 

Our ties are self-tipped, all silk, and woven in Como, Italy.

Cuttingboard,

 

That's an excellent idea. I'll see what I can do to make that happen.

Flyswatter,

 

Glad to hear you like our recent additions. Our 3" ties serve as a balance between the traditional and modern, complimenting our shirts well.

We've recently added our White and Blue Oxford Stripe French Cuff. Next week, we'll release the Blue Box Check and Light Blue Herringbone French Cuff shirts. While each of these are blue, expect a few more French Cuff shirts later this Spring and further additions in the Fall.

 

Here's a photo of our White and Blue Oxford Stripe French Cuff:

Our first shipment of blazers arrived late last week. They should be online in the next week or two but I'll share a preview sometime tomorrow.

A preview would be great...Mel is suppose to email me when they go up on the website. I'm disappointed that I missed out on the grey sutton blazer...hope you guys bring it back for fall/winter.

Glad to hear it!

 

The two darker jackets pictured are the Blue Dorian Windowpane and Navy Linwood Basketweave sport coats. The Blue Dorian is a fully-lined wool-linen blend with a welt breast pocket and two flap pockets. The Navy Linwood is a half-lined wool-linen blend with patch pockets. While I don't have further photos of these jackets, they will be online later this afternoon.
