TGIF Shopping: Ledbury Launches Pop-Up At Cole Haan To Introduce Made-To-Measure Program

Exciting bespoke news: The luxury shirtiers at Ledbury are partnering with Cole Haan for a New York City pop-up shop at their SoHo store beginning today (May 1st).

To celebrate, Ledbury will officially be launching their new made-to-measure shirtmaking service at the store.

“I have been wearing Cole Haan for decades and must have half a dozen pair of Cole Haan shoes in my closet,” explains Ledbury Co-Founder & CEO, Paul Trible. “Two years after we launched Ledbury, we noticed that Cole Haan’s senior leadership were buying our shirts. It seemed natural to reach out and try to do something together. It was an easy decision to move forward and a made-to-measure pop-up shop made perfect sense.”

It’s no secret that in recent years men have taken a greater interest in their clothing and, by extension, its fit. “All of a sudden, you have a large segment of male customers who know what they want to wear and are willing to engage in the selection process. And for that fashion-conscious male shopper, fit is the number one priority followed by convenience and service.”

The level of customization includes up to 20 measurements, collar, cuff, button and monogramming options–which, obviously you won’t want to say no to. There’s also over 750 Thomas Mason fabrics to choose from.

“I think collaborations work best when there is an mutual admiration for everyone involved. We really respect, enjoy and wear each other’s brands,” says Trible. “That extends from the heads of both companies, to the staff and customers.

Prices start at $185. Made-to-measure services will be available by appointment only, which can be booked via customshirting@ledbury.com

Additionally, Ledbury’s summer ready-to-wear shirts and sport coats will debut here before becoming available online on May 5th.
Ledbury Pop-Up Shop at Cole Haan will take place from May 1st-10th at Cole Haan’s SoHo location (128 Prince St).

Audemars Piguet, which has headquarters in Le Brassus, Switzerland, was founded in 1875 in Vallée de Joux by Jules Louis Audemars and Edward Auguste Piguet. Just like its peers Rolex and Patek Philippe, the brand is known for superb craftsmanship and simply its name in general, with many people buying it as their first watch when they come into money.

Audemars Piguet is a brand known for some of the most expensive watches in the world, with the likes of Tom Brady, Ed Sheeran, and LeBron James sporting one. It has also become known for celebrity collaborations, including with John Mayer and Travis Scott's Cactus Jack.

Protect your skin in style this summer with the best sun shirts of 2024
Better than sunscreen and chemical-free, these tops are purpose-built to fend off those "endless summer" rays.

When it comes to dressing for the summer heat, "less is more" seems to make the most sense. Less clothing means less trapped body heat, and that makes for a more comfortable you. For the most part, that works. But this equation doesn't account for protecting your skin against the sun's harmful UV rays.

For outdoorsy types – we’re talking the most adventurous kind, like trail runners, hikers, kayakers, mountain climbers, and so on – wearing less clothing while spending a significant amount of time in the sun can actually do more harm than good. Sure, sunscreen is a thing, and you should definitely keep using it. But that’s also where another problem arises: In order to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays, sunscreen — even the best natural, reef-safe sunscreen — needs to be slathered on regularly. And, if you’re spending more time outdoors than in, that gets expensive, too. That's where good sun-protective shirts (a.k.a. "sun shirts") come in.
