Our shirts tell stories. Each season, we make our final selects of “winner” shirts to go into production for a future release. Next comes the naming process, a company perk that most employees of Ledbury have assisted with.
A month after joining our Customer Experience Team, Michael Conigliaro had the opportunity to name a shirt in honor of his mother, who he lost to cancer in 2015.
When Ledbury’s Fall 2018 picks were finalized, Michael opened up to our Design team about his mother’s passing and mentioned her favorite color: purple. That’s when Lindsey Hunt, our Head of Design, got to work on a very, special release.
A week shy of Christmas, a box showed up on Michael’s desk with a beautiful checked fabric swatch attached to a piece of cardstock and the words “The Sondra Check” underneath. Michael’s family says that this is one of the best gifts that they’ve ever received. The subtle lilac tone of The Sondra Check was the perfect nod to Sandy’s memory, which Michael knew every Conigliaro would wear proudly.
