Yet another menswear brand is headed to DC, following the trend recently set by Onward Reserve, Frank & Oak, Filson, and Avenue Jack, among others. This time, it’s a local-ish brand that’s making its way into a DC brick and mortar: Ledbury, a Richmond-based luxury menswear company.
After the pop-up shops Ledbury has hosted in Georgetown, it shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise that they’ve chosen the neighborhood for their third store location–their first outside of Richmond. The brand is most known for their dress shirts, the product the founders, Paul Trible and Paul Watson, began with when they were building the line. Trible and Watson learned the craft of dress shirts in their twenties while living in London and working side-by-side with Jermyn Street shirtmakers. Their goal for their shirts, according to their website, was “to create the world’s greatest garment.”
Now, along with button-ups, customers can shop for men’s blazers, pants, socks, and ties, all of which are crafted with fabrics from European mills by international artisans that the Ledbury team met on their 9,000-mile journey to find the best makers in each discipline to manufacture their products.
The store will be located at 3319 Cady’s Alley, NW, a 670-square-foot previously occupied by Steven Alan (now located at The Shay). The store is scheduled for a late-spring opening.
Correction: The store will open in late spring, not late March as was previously stated. The store will not have “Shirt Stylists” on staff.
