    Obligatory "how slim are Ledbury slims?" We talking Express/BR Tailored Slim, Charles Tyrwhitt ESF, Uniqlo Slim, etc?

    EDIT: Never mind. Forgot their cheapest shirts would still only be $80.50 (and they have like 2 shirts in that range lol).
    My measurements, for context--> Body Type: Slim/Skinny |​ Weight: 175 lbs | Height: 6'1" | Neck: 16” | Chest: 40” | Waist: 33.5” | Shoulder: 18.75” | Sleeve: 35.5” | Bicep: 12.75” | Wrist: 6.75”

      Even though you edited your post, I thought I'd share my experience with Ledbury.

      For reference, I'm 6'3" 195 lbs. Over the past few years, I've been purchasing BB SFs during sales. The fit has been decent OTR - I do wish the shoulders were a bit wider, the taper was greater, and the sleeves were a bit slimmer. The BB ESF is too tight in the shoulders, chest, and sleeves for me.

      I purchased three 15.5 / 35 BB SFs last fall during a sale, all in the same fabric. Each one fit significantly different. I decided it was time to give something else a try. I bought a Ledbury Guilt City voucher ($75 for $135 or something of the sort) and went with one of their short run shirts that was available at the time. Poplin, buttondown collar, 16 / 35 slim. The fit is just about perfect for me. Wider in the shoulders than the BB SF, with a more pronounced taper. Slimmer in the sleeves, but not as slim as the BB ESF. The construction and fabric quality are also a notch above BB mainline.

      I've since bought five Ledbury shirts, all at pretty steep discount. I probably wouldn't pay full price for one. If you're measurements are close to any of Ledbury's options, I'd definitely give it a shot. Probably would go MTM with Proper Cloth or Ratio if not.

          Just wondering if you got the loafers in yet, and if so how the sizing worked out. Is 9.5 your Brannock size (or are there specific shoe models you wear that size in?)

          Gilt sent me the 30% off code again, so still contemplating buying these.

            For another point of comparison, Ledbury slim 16.5 x 34 fits similarly to my typical go-to shirt, the Nordstrom Smartcare trim fit 16 x 34/35.

                A bunch of Mark McNairy and Rancourt shoes just dropped into the sale section at Club Monaco, including the ever-popular Beefroll Penny Loafers from Rancourt. Additionally, all final sale items are 50% off with code "MAY50", although the pickings are pretty slim; there are a bunch of their lightweight chinos in each of their fits (Kennedy, Davis, and Connor, in increasing slimness), although the sizes are scattered and most of the colors are quite bold.

                  Regular, non-final sale items are 30% off with code MEM2014, though it doesn't appear to work on shoes.

                    In a cruel twist of fate, the brown Rancourt beefrolls are only on sale/available from Club Monaco Canada... change over to shop CM USA, and they disappear from the site. Just after I had decided to give them a try.

                      They were supposed to arrive today, but were delayed until tomorrow. I'll post back with the results. To answer your question though, I'm a 9.5C, I believe (just a bit narrow), but typically wear size 9.5US for dress shoes - I've got 9.5D on the Alden Hampton last, 8.5UK in the Meermin Hiro last, and 9.5 on whatever last the AE Dalton is... I also wear a size 9 in Wolverine 1K.

                        Woah, I didn't even see I was on the CA website! Good catch.

                          That sucks. I would have been very interested in those at that price.

                            There's a bunch of cheapo basics (chinos, shorts, polo shirts, crappy collared "dress" shirts, etc) on sale at H&M right now:

                            http://www.hm.com/us/subdepartment/MEN?Nr=2014945

                            Like a dope, I bought this suit two weeks ago for ~$100. It's like $60 now:

                            Linen Jacket $39.99: http://www.hm.com/us/product/24145?article=24145-B
                            Linen Pants $19.99: http://www.hm.com/us/product/24146?article=24146-C

                            Yeah yeah yeah, super skinny lapels and it's probably a bit short, but whatever. I'm not dropping hundreds of dollars on a casual linen suit that I'm going to wear 10 times a season. Coincidentally I'm wearing it today.



                            I usually wear a 40 jacket. Had to size up to 42 on this though.

                              Are you a 40L or a 40R? Wondering if the 42R will be ok on my normal 40L frame. Pants fit true to size?

                                I'm 6 foot 1. I usually wear a 40L and like my jackets a bit longer. As you can see from my pic, this jacket is a bit on the short side, but not unbearably short. And for the price, I'm not really complaining. Pants are true to size, yes. I wear a 34 in most RTW brands and I copped 34.
