    Danmmm for the most part they fit you well, but your six foot.

    I'm 5'9, the smalls would def be to small on me.

    collars suck bad

    ^This. I just got my hickory stripe chambray and I agree that the overall fit and quality is very good for the price, the collar (non-button down) sucks. It's a deal breaker. I'd rather have the $25.

    I said this when I first posted the photos ... however I like the fabric and the price is fine for what is very casual shirt for me.

    Actually the sleeve length seemed to vary

    You can't expect tight quality control at that price point, so I'd expect the sizing to vary a bit from item to item. Credit to Lands' End for sharing measurements with customers -- some companies won't provide them (I suspect) because they know there can be a lot of variety in different runs of the same shirt, the same shirt in different fabrics, etc.

    I bought a pair of the Canvas chinos. Good value for the money but still a cheap chino. The cut is like Bill's M3 but with onseam pockets. Low rise, straight leg that is not slim but not all that full either. Fabric is lightweight, maybe 6 ounces, not exactly a cold-weather item.

    quick fit pics:
    chambray gray (s)
    [​IMG]


    I noticed my chambray came with the left (buttonhole) side of the collar flattened down same way as in the pic. Wonder if coincidence or intentionally done that way as part of the "minimal packaging" aesthetic. It's annoying but I'll prob give these shirts a wash anyway.

    I always see people wearing dress shirts with both sides of the collar flattened like that, as if they ironed it that way. Maybe their dry cleaners are pressing them that way? It just looks awful to me.

    could the collar be worse than Jcrew secret wash shirts?

    LOL ..

    My collar looked the same too ... I think its the packaging ... let's see how it looks after a wash. The collars are the worst part about these shirts for sure.

    I don't like the collars on the OCBDs posted above either - the Lands End versions have MUCH better collars.

    I got my order and the shirts are fine for the price. They fit me, I'm 5'9" 150. They are what I would call a true Small, not really slim cut, not baggy either.

    The pants waist are mis-sized, my 30 measures 32.

    The best thing I can say about them is that I will consider buying a few more pieces

    I received my blue striped chambray in a size M today - pretty happy with the fit aside from the length being 1-2 inches longer than I would have liked (I'm 5'9) and the collar size being 15-15.5 (I usually wear 16.5 dress shirts).

    Not too keen on the flimsyness of the collar, but pretty happy with the feel of the fabric. I think I'll throw it in the washer and wash it on hot to see if I can shrink the length of the shirt.

    Guys, can anyone comment on the pattern-matching? I didn't get any stripes because I thought the patterns would be all off (and give away how cheap these are). Are they good at matching?

    I bought a medium earlier this week to compare and it fits me better than the small. I washed it warm and tumble dried low and it shrunk slightly (about .5 inch length and sleeve)

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    Would be nice is they had Tall sizes like they do in their regular line of some items.

    I got the M chambray here's a quick picture: [​IMG] dunno if I like it. kinda loose, yet narrow shoulder. collar sucks but maybe would look better after a few washings. if I keep it will probably have the body tapered to get rid of the big flair at the hips.

    the one guarantee with these are shitty collars

    have the white oxford and the navy poplin, serviceable shirts that have their time/place but the buttondown collars suck in terms of shape & roll (lack of)
