Meet Ledbury’s Limited Edition Popovers

While it’s still technically winter, warm weather is just around the corner. The impending change in weather will require clothing that looks good while keeping you cool during the day and warm at night. It’s not easy to look like a boss while balancing between the warm days and cool nights of spring, but it is totally possible. And Ledbury, one of our favorite luxury menswear brands, just made it easier.

Just in time for spring, Ledbury’s Commonwealth Collection has released two limited edition popover shirts that are ready-to-wear, but reflect the menswear brand’s respect for bespoke clothesmaking. These shirts are simple, handsome, and a must for any man who is looking to up his wardrobe game this spring.

The Ledbury Workshop recently acquired one of the last bespoke shirtmakers in the country, which has been making custom shirts for more than 100 years, outfitting the likes of Presidents Harry S. Truman and George H.W. Bush. Ledbury is carrying on the legacy of the care and attention that is put into bespoke clothesmaking. And through their buy-now-wear-now Commonwealth Collection, they’ve decided to share the wealth of carefully crafted clothes with those who might not be able to make it to Virginia in order to get their own custom shirts.

When it comes to looking (and staying) fresh in warm weather, nothing quite compares to the popover—the woven, collared shirt where comfort meets style. Ledbury’s popovers are handmade with brushed slub cotton, which gives the shirt enough weight to keep you warm at night but won’t leave you feeling weighed down during the day. Ledbury has only made a limited supply of each design, so these shirts won’t last long.

The Manual Wind: The IWC Spitfire Chronograph British Film Festival Limited Edition
IWC Spitfire, blue steel, british film institute limited edition

Limited edition timepieces are starting to rub people the wrong way. Brands are pumping out limited editions with the only difference being a subtle change in the coloration of the dial for some of their most popular pieces. Consensus among collectors is resoundingly negative, since each limited edition quickly trumps the previous and devalues others. This holds true until a well-designed limited edition timepiece that can be celebrated hits the market.

IWC is a brand guilty of this limited edition production practice, though not as flagrantly as some, like Hublot or Audemars Piguet. It’s latest limited edition, the IWC Pilot Spitfire Chronograph BFI (British Film Institute), takes the ever popular blue steel accents and makes it the piece’s focal point.

Every pair of these limited edition Sperrys is totally unique
sperry sailcloth cvo barneys 1

When classic shoe maker Sperry teams up with a high-end retailer like Barney's, the combination is bound to be pretty special. The two brands may have even outdone themselves this time, with the Sailcloth CVO, a Sperry perennial favorite with a neat twist - real sail uppers.

Each pair of CVO sneakers is wrapped with a piece of canvas that was actually used as a sail. Whether it was rigged to a college team's ship, or Sperry's US Sailing Team, the sneakers adopt their styling. That means stitching, patches, and coloring are completely unique to each pair of CVOs.

The Manual Wind: Oris Bronze Carl Brashear Limited Edition Diver
the manual wind oris bronze carl brashear limited edition diver

Steel and gold are the two metals that first come to mind in watch discussion.  Sprinkle in some titanium, ceramic, and platinum and call it a day.  Hublot was one brand to run the gamut on exotic metals; tantalum, cermet, and tungsten to name a few.  One metal making a big splash lately (causing it to patina) is bronze.  Gerald Genta tried with the Gefica years ago but it wasn't as well received as Panerai’s bronze Luminor of late.  Now Oris is taking a stab at this fun-to-wear metal with its Divers Sixty-Five inspired Carl Brashear Limited Edition.

At 42mm in diameter, slightly larger than the the Sixty-Five, the Carl Brashear is a classic diver cast in bronze.  Blue dial with round markers make for extreme legibility.  Beneath the dial lies an automatic Oris caliber 733 movement with a 40 hour power reserve.  Rated to 100m depth, this bronze case with steel caseback will suit your diving needs just fine.
