This month we made a large and important step as a shirtmaker - we opened our very first retail location in Washington, D.C. Opening a new shop is no small undertaking, so we decided in true Ledbury style to throw a rousing launch party. Our friends at Bulleit supplied the Old Fashioneds and Manhattans, and Kevin Coombe of DC Soul Recordings provided the soul and funk soundtrack that set the scene for the night. Close to 200 guests attended, including Ledbury friends, family, fans and notable Washingtonians, to help us celebrate our new location. Check out the party shots below, captured by local Carl Maynard, and share with your friends!

Along with ready-to-wear, the Georgetown store features an area dedicated to our made-to-measure shirtmaking services. Outside of Richmond, this will be the only other location to experience this level of customization from Ledbury. Made-to-Measure gives you many of the details of customization of bespoke but all measurements are taken in one visit (no repeat visits needed here). During your 60-minute visit, you can select from more than 700 Thomas Mason and Albini fabrics, in addition to dozens of collars, cuffs, monograms, and several other personalized options.
