Four years ago, Oxford MBA graduates Paul Trible and Paul Watson launched their online-based luxury menswear brand Ledbury in Richmond, Virginia. And since then, Washingtonians have caught on to the brand's obsession with fit and quality — D.C. is currently Ledbury's second-largest market. Now starting November 22, Ledbury will be able to meet customers face-to-face at the brand's month-long pop-up shop in Georgetown, just in time for the holidays. The pop-up will be located next to Jack Spade at 1254 Wisconsin Avenue NW, in a 1,000-square-foot shop with warm wood accents and taxidermy as decor. Ledbury's full line will be available at the Georgetown pop-up shop for customers to try on, including shirts, blazers, ties, sweaters, and accessories. Prices start at around $125 for shirts, $95 for ties, and sweaters for $139. All items purchased at the Georgetown shop will be fulfilled via Ledbury's website and shipped to customers. The shop will be open from November 22 through December 22 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday through Friday, and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays.
To celebrate Ledbury's arrival in Georgetown for the holidays, the founders, aka the Pauls, are throwing a little party at the shop this Thursday with craft cocktails and beer. Interested? Send an RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
