I wear a v-neck undershirt. It's not deep, but I never noticed it until I switched to Ledbury. Eventually I'll probably get annoyed enough to buy deeper v, but I can't stand wearing a dress shirt with no undershirt. A polo shirt, sure, but a dress shirt - particularly a white shirt - no way. It's probably because I've lived in

two of the most humid cities in America. D.C. in the summer is ridiculous.

I wear a low cut v neck (Polo Ralph Lauren) and it comes to just under the button. I wear a crew neck if I'm going to wear a tie.

Just want to add one more vote for a 15.5/35 size.

Felt like I needed to add an update to NOT dry these shirts. I always wash them on tap cold, but decided to test one on a delicate, low-heat setting, and it destroyed the shirt. Like shrunk 2-3 inches everywhere, and the fabric felt awful afterwards. Sleeves got the worst of the shrinkage; looked like I bought a shirt with sleeves for a toddler. 

 

They're fine if you wash tap cold, hang dry for 15-30 minutes and iron damp, but again, do not dry. Thank god Ledbury has a great return policy.

Another vote here against the Paul Bunyan-esque (comically large) cuffs! (I am talking about the double ("french") cuff shirts). I'm not buying any more shirts until this is fixed. They are fully an inch larger than most other brands I've compared and look and feel ridiculously large. They don't even fit properly in a suit jacket--they are scrunched inside!

Not sure what they are thinking! Many guys don't even wear watches anymore (with the dawn of the cell phone), and I'm sure the percentage that regularly wear huge diving watches or Panerais, etc. are not the standard customer.

The shirts fit right--for me the regular fit is fine, and I also have beefy wrists. But this is ridiculous. I am a larger guy and these cuffs are way too big; I can't even imagine what a smaller guy would look like--a sorcerer? The model wearing the shirts seems like a skinny guy, I don't see how those cuffs possibly fit him.

FIX THE CUFFS LEDBURY. YOU'VE MADE A SHIRT FOR A GORILLA.

P.S. I own about ten Ledbury shirts. The doule cuffs used to be fine (even on the bigger side) now they are monstrous.

Just a quick shout out to Allison at Ledbury for her awesome customer service. The Pink Mcguire is great. Really, really like the Alden collar, and while the cuffs are big, this shirt was meant for rolled-up sleeves.

 

Also, I know, I know. I need deeper v-necks.

Does anybody have any experience with these sizes compared to Epaulet? I'm just worried the sleeves might be too short. That's why I can't wear Gitman Vintage shirts.

What size are you?

Cuffs are too large. Won't fit in a blazer, as someone said above...

How is the fabric? I'm interested in trying some shirts although I am a bit concerned about the shrinkage factors. How resistant to wrinkling are the shirts?

I own several of their shirts, and although there has been some shrinkage, I would say it's minimal (I've only washed gentle/cold, and hang dried, FYI).

 

As far as wrinkling, all the shirts I have stay pretty crisp, and just need a quick pass with the iron to get smooth again. I don't believe they use any kind of non-iron treatments, which is a plus.
