What I Like: The Ledbury Sport Coat

As you all know, Ledbury makes some of the best dress shirts out there.  Their fit, style, and quality are right on queue for their price point.  The Pauls from Richmond know how to do it right – not only do they have an eye for great style, but they are some of the coolest guys in the business.

Ledbury has been dipping into different areas of mens style, including blazers, pocket squares, ties, sweaters, and sport coats and blazers:

My first experience with their sport coats was at their Atlanta pop up shop last fall, when they were first released.  From a quality perspective, they line up with their shirts – an outstanding value for their price point.  The style is right where it should be – a mature, refined look for guys that like to add some extra punch before stepping out.

From a fit perspective, they embody the Italian style.  Very soft shoulders and a trimmer fit that shows off a more form-fitting look.  Very updated, the Ledbury sport coat is extremely versatile.  They look great with jeans and a dress shirt, or with trousers and a tie.  They have a higher armhole and somewhat trim arms, but nothing about this jacket is ‘skinny’.

Sizing on the Ledbury sport coat is right on.  For a measured 40 regular, theirs fits like a glove off the rack (or delivered in the mail).  No need to size up or down.

From a construction perspective, the jacket is unlined, so the more you wear it, the better it fits.  The wool isn’t thick, but it isn’t thin either.  It will provide a layer of warmth.  The Ledbury sport coat is a jacket that you don’t have to take off – wear it like a sweater and make it part of the team.

All in all, every man should have a good blazer or sport coat that works in a variety of situations.  Whether it’s a hot date on Friday night, drinks with the boys at the club, or heading to church on Sunday morning, the Ledbury sport coat is sure to cure what ails you.

    Did you just say “drinks with the boys at the club”?

    Also, this is a sport coat not a blazer.
