Ledbury Coming to Cady's Alley

January 27, 2016

EastBanc, Inc. and Jamestown LP have announced that Ledbury, the Richmond-based men’s luxury clothing brand, has signed a long-term lease for 3319 Cady's Alley. The 670-square-foot store in the central courtyard will serve as the brand’s first DC showroom with plans for a grand opening slated for late-spring. Ledbury is one of many in the recent Georgetown Renaissance leasing activity, including retailers like Kit & Ace, Rent the Runway, Tuckernuck, Calypso St. Barth, Calligaris and Circa Lighting.

Motivated to produce high-quality items, founders Paul Trible and Paul Watson created Ledbury to offer great-fitting, well-made men’s clothing to be worn in any setting, by any generation. Learning from the renowned shirt makers in London, Ledbury designed a classic product with subtle innovations, including a lowered second button creating the perfect “V” neckline and a canvassed interlining of the collar keeping it standing tall, to create a timeless-looking oxford. Ledbury clothing is manufactured with quality fabrics from European mills with the help of international artisans. The product line has grown to include men's sweaters, pants, blazers and accessories, all with the same high-quality standards. 

“We have kept our eye on Ledbury for many years and continue a successful track record of providing space for entrepreneurial retailers that understand their market,” says Philippe Lanier, vice president of EastBanc. “I can’t wait to buy my first shirt!”
