Short Run's Run
Published on December 30, 2011
With the close of the year we wrapped up the “Short Run Shirting.” We hope that everyone enjoyed the collection and we definitely appreciate the thoughts and feedback. It was a lot of fun for us to experiment with different cuffs, collars, and fabrics. We are happy to report that a least 8 shirts are going to be introduced in the core collection. Personal favorites would be: The Jackson Denim (I can’t believe how much I wear this shirt. I often match it with a blue blazer and I even wore it out with jeans before Christmas as a nod to our neighbors to the north). The Shelby Corduroy (Some folks scoffed at our making a corduroy shirt. A Customer commented “Are you trying to make me look like my grandfather?”), but all it takes is one feel of this fabric to be a believer. It’s so incredibly thin waled and soft that the shirt has become a weekend staple. It’s also one of the few fabrics that we will not reveal its source. We have to keep some secrets… The Black Parker Gingham (I never have been a big believer in black shirts, but the pattern and the collar of this shirt won me over. Now it’s a personal favorite and soon to be a regular on the racks at Ledbury). So that’s it for Short Run, but plenty more shirts/experiments to come. Look for the fire hose to be turned on mid-February and the introduction of 50 new shirts this Spring….
