I remember asking about it a while back. Someone on Ask Andy seemed to indicate that he had bought a pair, and the leather was not of very good quality.

Nobody like Brazil?
I don't like the cut Land's End has at all, and you'll probably get an excellent deal on ebay if you keep looking for a month or so. I just got a lovely Chester Barrie blazer from A Harris a few days ago - spent about $135 totally, with minor alterations ( sleeve shortened, taken in at the waist). If you have some time, I'd really recommend the ebay route.

If you're not looking for something mechanical, I'd highly recommend the St. Moritz line - I have the Titan II chronograph, which is pretty much indestructible. Titanium case and strap.

I have bought a Huntsman suit from this seller - she was very good to work with, and the item was exactly as described. I paid with BidPay - the lack of PayPal did not bother me.
