first impression: ledbury

i’ve been hearing about ledbury since they started making shirts.  a friend of mine went to washington & lee with paul and paul.  i remember when he called me to tell me their story.  if you haven’t read it, you can find it here.  it’s incredible.  he urged me to order a couple of shirts, because they were about to blow up.  he was right.  over the past few years, ledbury have been mentioned in every men’s magazine i read and almost every blog on my google reader.  last week, i found out why.  their shirts are perfect.  they’re made with less fabric in the waist and torso to create a slimming effect aka a perfect fit without being “slim-fit.”  when you’re used to billowy brooks brothers dress shirts, it’s a welcome change.  most of my future dress shirts will now come from ledbury.  keep up the good work, pauls.

nyc work trip

i’m headed to new york tomorrow for a quick work trip.  i’ll be back on wednesday, so i’m packing light.  most of these items you’ve already seen on to take the train, but they’re worth mentioning again.  here’s what i’m wearing/packing for nyc:

brooks brothers navy fitzgerald two button suit – current my favorite suit that i own.

sid mashburn fox tie – a christmas gift that needs to be worn.  no time like the present.

sid mashburn button down shirt – i never leave home without a white button down.

tie bar from the tie bar – great entry point to the tie bar game.  can’t beat their prices.

gucci horsebit loafers – classic 1980s wall street.  these will be occupying my feet.

filson small duffle – the perfect overnight bag.  hands down.

i’m going to try to do a little shopping while i’m up there, but i’m not sure what kind of time i’m going to have.  i hope to come back with a good post and maybe some new kicks.
