I agree...I always wash cold on gentle cycle and hang dry and run an quick iron over them. The material is very good and shrinkage and wrinkles are minimal.

How slim is the slim cut? Is it for skinny guys?

The website has a fit guide that indicates its for a slim build but you can chat with a fit specialist if you're unsure and have questions.

I wear their 15.5 slim, and I would describe my build as more athletic than slim (40R chest, 31/32 inch waist, 5'10'' and 160lbs).  Most OTR shirts I buy I tend to get tailored to some degree, but these shirts are close enough to my ideal fit that I don't have to do anything to them.

 

Hope that helps.

What about classic fits? Do they still fit slim? I'm a 17.5 neck and pretty athletic where regular shirts come off as pillowy.

I have found that slim fit is great on me and classic is pretty big. If you're an athletic build, I'd go with slim. I'm pretty sure their return policy should make swapping it out easy if it's too tight.

Man, digging the new popovers for a casual weekend option, but not a fan of the classic only option.  Does anybody know how different chest size is between classic and slim?  I wear a 15.5 slim from them.  

 

I sent them an email but didn't know if anyone here could help.  Thanks

Their customer service is very good. I'm sure they will reply in the morning.

Hi there!

 

Thanks for the kind words on our popovers. They've been a hit around the office as well. The difference between fits in the chest is about 2-2.5 inches difference. We decided to offer one fit for a comfortable fit over one of our slim fit shirts. If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

 

Cheers,

Mel

Thanks, I decided to try a 15' instead of a 15.5. I probably will not be able to button the top button, but I don't really ever intend to anyway. I thought if I tapered the sides and thinned the sleeves a bit, I should be able to get a pretty decent fit. Does this sound like it should probably work out ok?

You will most likely notice the biggest difference in the fit of the sleeves. Going down to a 15 Regular will be a similar fit in the body to your 15.5 slim fits with a smidge more room. Would love to hear your thoughts on the fit once it arrives!

Will Ledbury be offering slim for 17.5 neck? I'm a bit of an athletic build, so not sure if the classic cut will fit me well (I really do not like the "pillowing" of dress shirts).

Do these shirts also make good sport shirts?

Yes, very good.

Any good examples of some or any of them that look "sporty"? The ones with the Black Label considered sporty?
