Good question --- I suspect that Lands End mainline still does a ton of business in the heartland. I think that Canvas and by extension LLB Signature never really connected with their target demographic, because the quality and styling aren't really at a higher level. don't get me wrong, I much prefer LEC and LLBS to anything on their mainline catalogs. I'm just not sure there are enough people who would rather buy Canvas than, say, the Gap or JCrew, out there.I do own a...

Hello. I'm interested in the shirt. PM sent. Thanks, Peter
I'm 5'11, 39-40" chest, 32" waist, with broad shoulders. But only weigh 160. I'm a cyclist so my thighs and glutes are developed, but I have skinny wrists and ankles. Hardest thing for me is shirts -- anything that flatters my chest/shoulders balloons around my waist. I've found best cuts for me are BB ESF and GV, though even Gitman is a little baggy around the waist. I agree that slightly tapered pants are best for athletic legs -- my go-to is Ep Rivet Chinos. I live in...
The poplin shirts have a really nice hand. The collars are a little stingy for me and I think they could be slimmer in the sleeves, but for the price you can't really complain. Definitely on par with JCrew's house brand shirts. I should pick up a couple more this summer.
Well I have a pair, in suede. What are you asking, specifically? Super comfortable, I'd go TTS or size down 1/2, esp. if you want to go sock less or use thin socks. I find this style to be most versatile -- little dressier than low mocs but not quite as dorky (IMO) as boat shoes or bluchers. (Maybe I should say, "more rugged" rather than less dorky...)
The evening fit would be perfect if jacket matched pants and if tie was smidgen wider. I don't have a lot of rules but you can't have same color suiting separate in different fabric. But I commend NYR, er, I, on nailing the fit. I'm not totally convinced that the morning tie works with the SC. I know he's a tie guy but I'd have gone with no tie and BD collar.
^^you'll live in them. I have the Quoddy version but with brick sole-it's a true three season shoe. I'd recommend invisible socks rather than sockless esp in summer.
I wouldn't go with starch on casual shirts. For "dress" shirts, I always go with light startch on broadcloth, poplin and Oxford cloth shirts, just so I could wear them more than once if I wanted to. I also launder my best shirts at home, and sometimes will use a dusting of spray starch on collars and cuffs. I'm not totally convinced that using starch will reduce the life of your shirts, at least not noticeably.
The quality is quite good, especially outerwear and sweaters. The only items I might be a little wary of are their suitings, if only because I think you could do better from a maker that specializes in suits. (I have only handled the suit separates in the store)Yes, APC is pricey at retail, esp. since a lot of it is now made in countries with low labor costs. However, that does not mean the quality is bad. I wouldn't necessarily call APC a "fashion" brand as I would OC --...
