Lands’ End has been running plenty of sales lately, but they’ve had more than a few stipulations. Most were codes that could only be applied to items that were regular price. Now, Lands’ End isn’t JC Penney, where everything is always on sale all the time, but they do mark down their stuff pretty quickly, and a good chunk of their inventory wasn’t up for those codes. That’s not the case here.
25% off isn’t mind blowing, but you don’t have to dodge the “regular price” or “good on only one item” stipulations. 25% off. Site wide, minus the usual exclusions like Allen Edmonds shoes. Buckle in for some basics. Let’s get after it…
UPDATE: Many thanks to Scott who dug up the 30% off code & pin seen above. In case that one dries up, BESTFRIEND & 1686 should get you 25% off through the 29th. Prices below have been adjusted for the 30% off. Sorry about that fellas…
Dang. Nice price. From their closer fitting, younger leaning “Lands’ End Canvas” collection. Wool body. Cotton lining (a review says it’s only partially lined?) and poly lined sleeves. Non-functioning sleeve buttons according to a reviewer. Tail looks a little on the short side, but could be a fantastic casual blazer. Sizes 40, 42, 44, and 46 available at post time.
About as inexpensive as a pair of made in the USA denim is gonna get. Already on sale, and the extra 25% off drops em’ under $50 (which happens to be the threshold for free shipping). 628 Straight has traditionally fit like a 501. VERY old review of the LEC Made in the USA jeans over here… no idea if these will look similar when they show up. But if they do, they’d be a steal.
Both colors shown above are at the $18.74 price point. Four shades are on sale, four shades aren’t. Decent enough size selection for those that are already marked down. If you’re getting the Made in the USA Jeans, might be worth picking up a pair of these at the lesser price (if they have your size) in order to tip the free shipping at $50 balance?
First, the good news: Fit is terrific. Shown above is a 38R on 5’10″/180. If you take into account that even the “tailored” jackets from LE can be slightly generous, then you should be able to get away with no extra tailoring. Fit is spot on. Sleeve buttons are non-funcitonal but there is some tonal accent stitching around them (should be easy to ignore if you have to bring up the sleeves a bit and lose a button). Patch pockets. 95% wool and 5% nylon shell. Now, the bad news: It’s fully lined in polyester. Sleeve lining is a poly rayon blend, but overall the lining feels a bit cheap. Color in person leans more towards the green side of “aged olive” than grey.
Yep. Especially in that light grey. 70% wool /30% poly brushed flannel that’ll get you through the coldest months looking like a pro. If you’re the type who leans on nothing but jeans between October and March, take one of these for a spin. You might just channel Cary Grant, minus having the pants up around your rib cage.
A warning: These allegedly run quite large, so read the reviews before attempting to nail down a size. Awfully good looking though. Not clunky looking from above, perfect toe, and the penny strap is set far enough back on the vamp that they look more modern & young, and less stodgy and dusty.
A modern throwback.
Cuffs on a slim, flat front pair of pants. Combed cotton on both sides so it’ll be soft on the outside, and the inside (aw yeeeah). Busy plaid, but in a not too wild fall-ready shade. Just keep the rest of the outfit simple. UPDATE: See the comment from James below… looks like these don’t have those beefy cuffs, but instead the stylist just cuffed em’ up for the shot manually. Thanks to him for the clarification.
Another free-shipping balance tipper (if you’re close to $50, and don’t want to shell out $8 for shipping). Tailored fit. Already on sale. Button down collar. Jeans & blazer + one of these and you’re good.
Extremely well reviewed and a staple for plenty. Made from merino wool. Cut in a trim, but not inappropriate for a conservative office silhouette. Five shades and you can get em’ hemmed (cuffed or uncuffed) within a 1/4″.
Interesting. Wouldn’t call this a “shirt” by the looks of it. Looks like they took the styling of a leather cafe-style racing jacket, and made it out of a “heavy duty” twill. Lined in chambray. Would you?
Target peacoat price at a (hopefully?) higher level of quality. Mainly wool, with nylon and “other” filled in for a water repellent finish.
Dense cotton twill with jean-style patch pockets on the rear. Two different but not insane colors. Nice and cheap. Also, quite slim. If you’re on the fence about the 608, know that they’re cut real trim. Already on sale.
A little on the pricey side, but from their slimmer leaning Lands’ End Canvas line. Has potential. Probably want to wait for it to go on sale. Hmmm… might as well take a quick look at the reviews ……
(So wait, if it fits, does that mean I have to go through puberty again?)
The 25% off Lands’ End code BESTFRIEND and pin 1686 is good clear through Monday 9/29/14.
