In case you missed it, blue is one of our favorite hues around here at Ledbury HQ. Which is why have a soft spot for our exclusive, limited-run Indigo Capsule Collection.
Indigo is an organic compound dye that has been used on textiles for over 6,000 years. It was originally used in India, and made it’s way to ancient Greece and Rome where it was valued as a luxury material. It’s also the blue that you will find in your favorite denim – the original blue jeans were dyed with indigo (though most use synthetic dye these days).
This collection has undergone a special dying process resulting in variations of shading and color. These variations add unique character to each shirt. Our indigo collection shirts require a certain level of care due to the dye treatment. We recommend washing these shirts separately in cold water to prevent dye transfer to other light-colored clothing. Read on for a few highlights from the collection and you’ll see why these will quickly be in your summer rotation.
The Renton Indigo Oxford
The soft color of this indigo Oxford will wear beautifully over time for a washed, worn-in look that is truly unique. The Renton Indigo Oxford is made of 100% cotton from Albini, and complete with exclusive design details. The double-welt, left chest pocket is set into a dropped yoke seam, providing just enough detail to differentiate this shirt. Finished with a button-down collar and a shortened body, allowing the shirt to be worn both tucked in or casually untucked. Shop the Renton.
The Plover Indigo Gingham
This heathered grey and indigo gingham, cotton-linen shirt has subtle details in all the right places. This shirt has a unique placket detail that gives a nod to the popover while providing the same great fit of our classic full button-through shirts that you know and love. A notched cuff detail aligns beautifully with the placket detail. Shop the Plover.
