Great to hear! Thanks so much for the feedback. We're glad you're enjoying them and that they went over well with your wife!

Hi all,

 

Just wanted to take a minute to thank you all for engaging with us through Style Forum and for your support of our brand. We've gone ahead and opened up the Style Forum promo until Aug. 10. Use promo code SFINTRO25 to receive $25 off of your purchase.

 

We're working on developing the Short Run Collection swatches we'd like you all to help us design. Would love to hear more thoughts on what you'd like to see in this collection.

 

Cheers!

Mel

Yes, it should be applicable to any product!

Got my shirts last week, generally left a very good impression-
pro:
great fabric
-really like the ledbury spread collar- pretty much perfect proportions
-collar construction seems very nice
-slim fit is a great cut for the non-waifs among us. If you like a drop 7 or so jacket, it's a clean look without being obscenely tight. nice high armholes too
-price point seems quite fair- not a screaming deal at full price, but free shipping/ the $25 SF promo takes the edge off
-really like some of the casual patterns

con:
-sleeves- this is the killer. If you have long arms like me, this is a dealbreaker. An extra inch in sleeve length, and I'd probably buy a dozen of these things tomorrow.
-anglo american spread collar is kinda dumpy, in my opinion- just a matter of taste. Unfortunately, it's on most of their shirts
- lots of ginghams/ stripes/ checks- would appreciate more solids/ CBD shirts. Just opinion on my part, judging by what my peers/ most guys without jackets I see wearing, they shouldn't listen to me on this.

Overall, I really, really like the shirts, but won't be buying any more until the sleeves grow a bit.

Thanks for taking the time to share your opinions on your new Ledbury shirts. We appreciate the feedback and I've got a bit of good news for you. Longer sleeves are on the way! They should be available within the next 6 months or so. We've been leaning more towards the Ledbury Spread and Cutaway Collars in most of our newer shirts. Expect to see some basics with the spread sometime in the future, also. Thanks for the input on what you'd like to see more of- we have had many requests for more basics and are exploring our options in terms of fabrics for future production.

I think they have a healthy mix of collar styles, Ledbury spread is my favorite for casual and Anglo for dress shirts.

I'm currently holding at 7 shirts because they all are beginning to look the same...to many checks and ginghams.

I've got two shirts from Ledbury and have worn them both and am really impressed with how well they wash up. The only complaint I have is that I wish the second button from the top was slightly higher. I think that would help holding the collar up a bit stiffer if that makes any sense.

is there as way to know which fabrics the shirts are source from? I think the selections are great. Unfortunately, I have to pay extra for shortening the sleeves...frown.gif

Yes, to the right of the pic, there's a fabric description tab. For example:

Item description: The Black Cross Gingham - A bold black gingham check on Thomas Mason Poplin topped with the Ledbury Cutaway Collar.
Fabric tab: Italian woven 2-fold cotton poplin. A perfect year-round cloth made from long staple yarn that responds well to vibrant color dyes. Fabric creates a cool and comfortable shirt that is not easily wrinkled.

$10 is a bargain to have your sleeves shortened and it only adds a couple days to the delivery time. Much less expensive and troublesome that going to the tailor.

I ordered the purple cross gingham shirt using the SF discount code. The website suggested that I order a size 15 slim after I entered all my info. I'd have to say the sizing application is pretty accurate now that I've received the shirt. I think the shirt look very good and fits me well, and it looks to be well constructed. I'll be checking out the next batch of short run shirts to see if anything catches my eyes.

I was curious about the sizing application because it suggested that I wear a slim since I normally wear a slim in Brooks Brothers. After talking to Paul, he suggested a regular size which fits great with no excess fabric. Of course, the Brooks Brothers slim runs large. I'll have to try a slim at the next DC popup show.

Word to the wise...follow washing instructions. Wash in cold on delicate cycle and hang dry. These shirts are very easy to iron.

Welcome to SF and more success....

Thanks for reaching out. Our fabrics are sourced from a handful of Italian mills- Monti, Albini, Canclini, Luggiuno and Thomas Mason. Most of the mills are listed on individual shirt pages, but if you have any questions about particular styles, please feel free to email us at customer-service@ledbury.com.

 

We do have a promo running for first time buyers, SFINTRO25, that you can use to receive $25 towards your purchase. We are also looking into shirts of varying sleeve length in the future, and hope to have more options available sometime in the next six months.

I usually wear Brooks Brothers ESF Medium, and the sizing application said Ledbury 15 slim would fit with the collar being slightly tight while the chest and sleeves should be right on. That's how the Ledbury shirt ended up fitting me. I did also consider the measurements listed on the Ledbury website. The 15 slim did seem to be the best fit for me based on their measurements too.
