Question for People that have ordered shirts from Lands End - Page 2

post #16 of 22
I thought it might make sense for cotton pants. May take a chance one of these days...

Well, I got my shirt yesterday, and I have to say that I am pretty satisfied. The construction is decent. It has single needle stitching and cool triangle gusset things. The collar could be more substantial. The fit is actually pretty decent for my first shot. The sleeves seem to be a tad bit long, but I have to wash it first a couple of times to see if I want to mess with the length. Other than that, I'm going to shrink the body by 2 inches on the next one and the upper arm by 1 inch and it should be pretty damn perfect. Obviously it's not as good as my CEGO shirts or even my mytailor or chan shirts, but you can't beat the price for every day workhorse solid colored shirts. These will be my "I don't care if I beat the shit out of them" shirts.


Bottom line: For $60, not too shabby.

Try the pincord blazer material , it is very substantial. It is a bit more but very comfortable.

waiting for mine to come through. 2 to 3 more weeks....

and i agree, the question "When wearing dress shirts how do they typically fit you in the chest and shoulders?" is a weird question. I gave them the answer for my brooks brothers traditional fit. which was loose. and then asked for the tailored fit.

i also included my actual measurements in the comments section (nothing major - just the basic overarm, chest, waist, neck, sleeve, bicep, and wrist measurements). i have no idea if they'll use them, but i included them.

hopefully i have the shirt soon, and won't need too much tweaking....

I asked Land's End about that fit question and received the following reply:

"Selecting "Loose" to answer that question will result in a CLOSER fit of your Land's End Custom shirt."

I suspected the question assumed that you were UNSATISFIED with typical OTR shirts.

I don't even remember what I selected, but the shoulder on the shirt I received fits pretty nicely. It might be about 1/2 inch off on each side, but that only matters in Styleforum land - in real life it's not that big of a deal. The shirt actually fits pretty nicely right of the bat and is definitely wearable, but I'm going to change the upper arm and chest measurement just to get a slightly tighter fit. All in all I'm very satisfied.

I received my most recent LE custom shirts (two) several weeks ago, but forgot to post an update. The fit is very good, better than the fit of shirt I picked up yesterday from a men's store, made by Individualized Shirts for twice the price. In fairness, the shirt from Individualized will shrink a little in the wash.
