All About the Shirts
An article in the Richmond Times-Dispatch last month reported on Washington and Lee alumnus Paul S. Trible’s new venture — an online store selling men’s shirts offering “European quality, English fit and American style; all at an attainable price.” Paul and his business partner, Paul Watson, planned Ledbury while they were in Oxford, pursuing M.B.A. degrees and getting accustomed to shirts tailored by the London shirtmakers of Jermyn Street. Not only did they create their business plan, they worked with a British tailor to learn the trade before launching the store. You can read the story of the company’s founding on both the Web site and on their Facebook fan page. And be sure to check out the video in which Paul discusses the shirts here on YouTube.
