On The Look Out

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!”

Gerald Albright Live at Blues Alley

January 4, 2016

Legendary saxophonist Gerald Albright will be performing live at Blues Alley Thurday, January 14 through Sunday, January 17th.

Beginning in the late '80s, Gerald Albright recorded numerous successful solo albums for Atlantic when he wasn't busy assisting an impressive, and mammoth, roster of popular R&B artists. Born in South Central Los Angeles, the saxophonist idolized James Brown and took much influence from Maceo Parker and Cannonball Adderley. He first made a name for himself within the music industry during the 1980s, when he became a highly requested session musician. His revered reputation resulted in a solo contract with Atlantic Records.

Whether he is playing contemporary or straight-ahead jazz, Albright stands in a class all by himself. He is known for his swiftness on stage, his unique round sound which is percussive yet soulful. He has the ability to surprise the audience with something out of the ordinary. Albright gives his audience what they come for - a great show!
