I usually don't blog about clothing, but I was intrigued by an innovative shirt design by a new company called Ledbury in Richmond, Virginia. Ledbury's "Work Shirt" has a lowered second button that creates just the right amount of man-cleavage for the tieless business casual environment favored by many entrepreneurs. "Unbuttoning one button on a standard shirt is too constrictive while opening up two buttons is a little aggressive for the workplace," Ledbury's founder, Paul Trible, wrote in an e- mail. The shirt has button cuffs and an Anglo-American spread collar that is constructed to stand up when worn without a tie under a blazer or sweater. The shirt, which ranges in price from $125 to $135, is made from Italian woven fabric and finished with mother of pearl buttons. Check out this video on Ledbury's blog for more details on the shirt.
