Lands' End Canvas - Page 225

post #3361 of 3521

I purchased the Lands End Oilcloth jacket in size S. Came in the mail today. Gonna have return it. This is why when you want something, save up for it. Ill get the bedale ive been lusting over. this has these extra flaps in the back that are obviously intended for mobility. However, while the jacket fits me perfectly in shoulders, chest, and length, it is pulling along the back and making those flaps/vents pull outward. So the medium was too big, and the small was too small in 1 spot. Oh well, took a chance for $70 after the 40% one item promo. But not worth 70 if it doesnt fit right. 

 

Plus, it is not even close in feel of quality in comparison to Barbour as some have pointed out. The zipper and stitching were solid, but the jacket feels...flimsy. Not as solid as similar styled jackets from other brands (filson, barbour, belstaff, etc). And yes, I realize those are premium brands, but this jacket once retailed for 250.

I'm returning the Canvas Herringbone pants.  They are extremely skinny below the knee to the point of being tight in the calf.

 

Bummed as I had high hopes....

Anyone get the herringbone pants and were pleased? I'm looking for a 'skinny' wool pant to begin with, probably gonna grab the grey ones in 33, $42 is a steal with the current code. 

 

Just wondering if anyone has a pair in 32 or 33 and could measure out the thigh for me, only thing i'm concerned about, and is the waist sizing consistent with the rest of the lec stuff?

I wanted to get a pair of these, but got the Club Monaco ones instead (Grant Fit Suit Trouser). The CM ones were more expensive though. I paid $80 for them at half price from the after Chistmas sale.

Still have to get them hemmed, but here is a fit pic:

The poplin shirts (and many other shirts) are on sale and I like the look of them, but in the store they tended to be wrinkled and looked like they needed ironing. Can they be worn without ironing, if they're hung up immediately after drying? One of the reviews says you can do this, but I'm skeptical.

IMO, no, but it depends on how much sloppiness you can tolerate.

I agree with this and I can tolerate a lot of sloppiness. The poplin is a stiffish fabric and holds wrinkles. The OCBDs are softer andl can be worn without ironing, though.

Nah they get obnoxiously wrinkled if not ironed, I hardly wear any of the poplin shirts anymore out of sheer laziness.

Just received the boiled wool blazer and its going back to the store.

It feels like a sweater with no structure, which was not what I was looking for.

This is the story w/ a all the Clearance outerwear I just got from them. 4 items and every single one is going back. Either the fit was terrible or the fabric was lame. Damn frown.gif

I just got hooded cardigan (tide-pool heather in small) and it is great. I had to size down for a better fit (5'10, 32" waist and 39" chest) and it fits great with a tee/light button-down under it. There is one color left in stock I think, but it's worth a shot; I certainly like it a lot, especially the weave of the fabric.

New arrivals are trickling in. I'm reminded that I f*cking hate popovers.

Exit question: Can they possibly top last season's men's pajama onesy w/ the butt flap?

Yeah man, I am not a fan of those either. I don't think anything will top the butt flap ha-ha. It seems like some simple items keep getting more expensive. I mean, they are charging $30 for a graphic tee when L.L.Bean is making some (and all their stuff ships free) for $34.95 - granted, there are only two options, but still, I can't ignore that. :-/

 

 

 

The printed poplin shirts is only thing I would consider buying right now.
