Is any of the Lands End stuff for men good? - Page 5

post #61 of 71
Is the fit for the ordinary Tailored Fit OCBD shirts the same as for the Hyde Park Tailored Fit OCBD shirts?

I recently started playing around with Land's End's custom program. I customized a first shirt, a blue OCBD and for a first try and $69 it was very very decent and I'm very very happy. At this point, other than the width of the upper arm which I cannot customize further, I can literally make future shirts fit very very very nicely in a slim fit fashion.

I'm a true convert with the custom program.

Hi - my first post on this board. I appreciate all the great information here.

I picked up a couple of the Lands End full canvas suits - one of each color. I plan to use them as beater suits for business travel.

http://www.landsend.com/pp/TailoredC...5&origin=index

The kicker is that they are on sale, plus they have been running 20% off promotions; so final price was $240 each ($160 jacket + $80 pants). Their original price was $720 ($495 + $225); I don't know if they were worth that price, but for the sale price I figured I'd give them a shot.

I am not a suit expert, but I have found these to be quite nice. They do appear to be full canvas (according to the glossary posted here). And they are cut slimmer than the usual LE stuff.

If anyone's interested in pics, I can post them later.

LE changed the cut of the Tailored Fit shirts for the 2009 shirts. The cut is supposed to be a bit more athletic, w/ broader shoulders.

Here are some pics of both Lands End full canvas suits. These are right out of the box - I ordered the pants unhemmed.

Overall, I am very pleased with these for the money. The fabric of the brown plaid suit, in particular, is really nice. The navy blue is straight blue - no pattern at all; but still nice. They have surgeon's cuffs. Note also that the pants are cut slimmer than normal for LE.

Made in Thailand from Italian fabric, I think.

They are 3-button suits, but in the darker suit photo I am wearing it as a 3-2 1/2.

They also include a really nice wooden hanger with each suit, as an added bonus.

The silk ones have excellent weight and seem very well made.

Does anyone know how their different trousers fit?

 

I can't seem to find any slim-fits only the original, traditional, tailored and straight fitted pants. Which one should I go for?

I think its called the "elston" that people liked if you are talking about cotton, wool I don't remember anymore.

Sure, I'll do a zombie thread resurrection.

I stumbled on this thread while doing some research into LE for some purchases I'm going to make.

I just picked up their blackwatch Viyella l/s shirt, and it is great! I was really surprised. I don't expect much from this company, or didn't, until now.

Yes, the fit is generous, but damn, it's comfortable. It actually has me convinced that I may be wearing my shirts too small, and that I need to get away from this whole trim, slim-cut stuff. Or maybe I'm just getting old.

In any case, I'm going to check out some of their sail rigger OCBDs next.

Years ago I used the LE "custom" jeans program.
They never got the fit right and jean quality was inferior.
I also used to buy their knit short and long sleeve polos.
I have found LL Bean superior at roughly the same price
