The latest promo is $25 off a purchase of $115. Here's a referral code: http://www.ledbury.com/referral_code?ref_id=313

I'm sure of the spread dimensions but here's a pic of the Ledbury spread.

Hmm, thanks for that but I don't think the link is working properly. Takes me to the "Anatomy of a Shirt" video and no mention of a $25 discount.

Just wanted to chime in with pro/con feedback for Ledbury. To give background, I'm a 15", 33". I started wearing Brooks non-iron slim-fits in college and despite trying other shirting companies, I've always found myself back with Brooks due to ease of sizing, and the fact that I've tried to avoid ironing - and their shirts look crisp for years. However, I'm a sucker for a nice spread collar and the ainsley is awful.

 

Started with an initial order of a light blue fine twill shirt with the ledbury spread.

 

http://www.ledbury.com/products/the-blue-fine-twill-spread-slim-fit

 

The body is great - a little slimmer than a Brooks Slim, the cuffs are huge, and the collar is fantastic - with or without a tie. I'm not a huge fan of the lowered second button as it shows too much of your undershirt (if you wear an undershirt) for my taste, but with a jacket, it looks nicer than any shirt I've worn.

 

The fabric is thin, and it took me a few wears to get used to the way the shirt wrinkles (again, courtesy of Brooks non-irons for eight years.) I also had no idea how to iron a shirt - which is a strange confession, but I write that because these shirts inspired me to buy a nice iron and learn how to iron well.

 

I loved the shirt so much, I've picked up three more for a total of four, with a fifth on the way. I've noticed on the windowpane shirts, you can literally feel the windowpane stitching in the fabric - which is a new experience, and I love the MOP buttons.

 

I dislike the $10 fee to shorten the sleeves an inch (which looks like a common complaint), but not enough to stop a purchase. I haven't tried the button-down collar either, as I love Brooks button-downs, but I'm sure that will come.

Ledbury, fix the cuffs. Otherwise, you make an awesome shirt. I also never got credit for my friends making purchases - two in a row now. It doesn't even register that they made an account - just says "email sent." Fix that as well.

You'll also notice that Ledbury shirts breathe better since they do not contain the chemicals used to make the shirt wrinkle free. I was a Brooks Brother no iron fan but I still ironed the shirts and find Ledbury shirts extremely easy to iron, actually spend less time ironing Ledbury shirts. Additionally, I find that Ledbury shirts wrinkle less as other all cotton shirts because of the quality of the fabric.

The $10 fee doesn't bother me because it would cost more to have the sleeve shortened at my local tailor and they offer free shipping. If I had to pay for shipping, I would not longer buy Ledbury shirts since it would add an addition $25 to the price once you combine shipping, alterations and tax.

I too hate the cuffs!

Email or call customer service, they're very helpful and you'll receive your credit.

This is my first post here at SF and having just received my first Ledbury shirt, I have to concur with previous posts that their slim fit isn't a great fit for slim guys (5'8" - 5'9", 30-31 waist, 37-38 jacket). I ordered their 15" white and blue windowpane and had the sleeves shortened 2". The body is OK at best, but the sleeves are blousy and the cuffs are way too big. It wasn't until I dig more digging that I found out, here on SF, that others had shared the same feeling about the slim fit's fit and the cuffs in particular.

 

Hopefully there's an extra slim fit coming out before my Daily Hookup vouchers expire at the end of this year.

Off-topic, but have you considered wearing a V-neck undershirt?

Or none at all...I normally wear a v-neck underneath when wearing an undershirt. I don't care for any of my undershirt to show.
