Agreed.

But I won't even bother taking them to the tailor. My first season LEC Shirts' (Both Winter/Summer) were far slimmer then the offerings the last three seasons.

Can anyone else do a more substantive review of the selvedge poplin shirts?
Share their thoughts?
Cut, details, quality of fabric etc?

Yeah man, I bought the shirt in the purple gingham when it was on sale earlier and I thought it was nice. The fabric isn't paper thin but obviously not thick like a twill either. I think it is just below an oxford. I think the stitching and buttons were right on. It isn't mentioned on the website ( I believe) but it does have a split-back yoke. This made it fit very well for me. The body I thought could have been actually slimmer. I was surprised that they said it was their slimmest offering. I would rate it somewhere between a Nordstrom trim fit and their Calibrate trim fit (the Calibrate is a little trimmer) so it isn't the slimmest shirt in the world, but on me, it was hardly blousy either; a good middle balance I think.

 

I ordered a 16.5X34/35 and I will have to get the sleeves tailored, but I also thought the neck was a little large for a 16.5. This might be a benefit though, as washing it could shrink it down to what I want. The gap wasn't huge. It could still be worn with a tie just fine, but not quite tight enough for the way I like it.

 

I don't know if it is worth full retail, but I would probably buy it if it was $50 or so. I got it for $30 with free shipping so I can't complain.

I like the shirt. I ordered a 14.5 size and it fits perfectly. The neck size is half size bigger, I think. My regular dress shirt size is 15/33. The fabric quality is very nice and the spread collar sits perfectly. Recommended!

Still no coupon codes?
post #2924 of 3527
the usual free shipping over 50 is floating around, there is just a free shipping one around too, i think it is SPRING, no idea on the pin, 2480? It was in an email recently.

Just posted a review On LEC of the selvedge poplin. It includes measurements of the 15.5. Here it is:

 

 

When this shirt first came out, LEC was charging $130, so I was willing to take the plunge when it was discounted even lower than the $70 recently. I'm glad I did!
 
First of all, the other reviewer may not know what poplin fabric is. He is advised to check out broadcloth shirts if he wants something thicker. Poplin's not going to be super thick, but it is strong, and is suitably formal if ironed. It's also not more see though than an average white dress shirt. This is a 100% cotton shirt in a crisp, lightweight fabric that holds a press well. The selvedge details are a nice touch, but aren't visible when the shirt is fully buttoned and tucked in. It also includes collar stays.
 
My 15.5 x 34 fit well. Measurements: 20.5" pit to pit, 18.25" shoulder to shoulder, and 19" across waist. The 30" length from base of collar to tail is appropriate for tucking in, though I'm definitely tall enough to go untucked. My only complaint is that the shirt isn't significantly slimmer than other LEC shirts. It's a slim cut, but I'd love to see them drop another inch off the chest, an inch and a half off the waist, and tighten up the arms.
