It's actually smart retail strategy not to offer *too* many coupons. They used all those coupons to whet our appetites, and now they'd like us to pay full price. That's okay with me. I'd like their full retail price to be more fair, though. They're too high for the given quality. I'll buy full price from Uniqlo and LLBean because the quality is commensurate with the price. LEC quality isn't always there, so it's harder to justify buying at full markup.
They need to have a lower MSRP. Nobody is going to pay the full retail on their $130 pants.
Though everything makes it to the deep sale. They are now selling some old spring summer items on the Lands End site for 80%+ off. You can usually stack an LE coupon on top of that.
The classifieds section on the LEC had $2 tees, <$2 pocket squares, <$5 sweaters,... My GF just picked up 15+ items for less than $150. Mostly shirts and pants, but a pair of boots, leather bag, and a couple jackets came too.
Looks like the walmart level pricing and endless gravy train of discounts is over. I'm sure due in large part to you clowns heavily abusing the generous return policy: as in "I'll order six shirts just to see the colors and keep the one I like" douchebaggery. You stupid emo's.
This is my current favorite shirt of the past fall/winter. I think I retail - 30% for it a while back.
The fabric is thick hefty and pretty stiff. Wrinkles up nicely IMO. The vertical nailhead stipes are pretty subtle and only noticeable when you get within 2-3 feet. The construction of the shirt is pretty good and compares favorably to anything else in my rotation right now.
After a half dozen washes and cycles through the dryer it's starting to get a nice fade on it. So much so I'm thinking about picking up another one before it goes away.
For $17 this shirt is a steal. It might be a bit too thick for the warmer months coming up but think it will pop back up in rotation next year.
My only complaint is that I wish this shirt had come in more colors.
