As to the pants, there's no doubt in my mind that LEC chinos blow J.Crew's or anything in the same price range out of the water. Good fabric, good fit and decent construction. Questionable color choices though (there's 'midnight blue' and 'soap stone' but not even good ol' navy? Come on.) Once they have some remotely popular color I will be over there real quick.


They had navy for a while.  They don't really ever stick to a consistent fit or color selection for very long.

Just picked up the new Rain Anorak from the Fall '13 collection and it's great. Price was right with a coupon, construction seems good, fit is spot on (arm length is nice and long for me), they nailed the buttons, and there are some nice little details liked a braided leather inner locker loop/hang tag. Very nice, highly recommended.

That's great!  Let us know how it stands up to rain, because not all water-resistant jackets actually perform that well for very long in rain.

Can you do a fit pic?

A few "new" and slightly less disappointing (by means of them being things that don't suck too much) offerings popped into their Men's section recently:



This is definitely something I'll be getting when it's on sale.

Solid, can't really complain.

Interesting concept, I guess: a cotton cashmere rugby.

I've actually been wondering why I haven't seen an LEC tattersall until now...

Hi guys, was interested in getting a chambray and poplin shirt. Getting it shipped overseas so want to get the sizing right to avoid returns.

 

I'm 5'10 - 5'11, around 160 pounds. Athletic build, chest approx. 40 inches.

 

Was thinking a medium. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Their customer service is usually quite willing to provide garment measurements - I'd use the customer support chat feature to ask for the specific measurements of the shirt and then compare that to something that fits you well.

Yes, order a medium.

You have another request from me for a fit pic! I liked that jacket too and will look to buy it in the near future when I get a chance. Cheers.

Elston and Comer chinos are now on sale for $38.

post #3491 of 3534
I might be the only one, but I'm increasingly liking what I see at Lands End at my sears. Bought a henly and a broadcloth shirt that has washed and worn well.

Their tailored fit dress shirts have become a staple for me -- esp. when bought on sale for $15-$20ea.  My LE oilcloth jacket is perfect (again, for what I paid).  I tried the LE cords (tailored fit) and found them to be huge - haven't tried the canvas-branded pants yet though.  The selection in the stores is always lacking compared to what's available online... The only time I find myself at Sears is to do a return.

Thanks for reminding me that oil cloth jacket is under $100 now. Is Dark Rust a nice color in it?

I bought the Dark Rust and think it's great; the color has much more depth than what's shown in LE's site.  For ref., I typically wear a 42 jacket, 16x33 shirts and pants with a 34" waist -- I went with a medium in the Oilcloth and it fits me well.  Though not slim, the jacket isn't nearly as "tent-ish" as many of the LLBean and Woolrich field jackets that I've tried.  Construction seems sturdy and the detailing is good.  I'm definitely pleased with the coat, especially now that it's getting cool enough outside to wear it....

...and they're running a 35% off outerwear sale through 10/14 (Promotion Code: OUTERWEAR PIN: 5035) -- meaning the Oilcloth jacket should now be $65 with free shipping.  Definitely worth it at that price.
