A “seasonal standout” the copy reads. Truer words have not been typed. If I were designing the perfect fall shirt, I’m pretty sure I would end up with the Mernin Plaid, part of Ledbury’s newly released fall collection.
The navy, forest, cream and orange combine to create a fall kaleidoscope of colors. The plaid is set on soft, lightly brushed cotton twill. It’s not quite flannel territory, which lends a bit more versatility and office-appropriateness. The Alden collar, a Ledbury variation on the spread collar, also ups the business ante, while a shortened body allows it to be comfortably worn untucked after hours. This shirt is as fall as pumpkin spice lattes and college football.
