I assume that for most guys out there, the name “Lands’ End” conjures up images of piles of stupid catalogues their mom got in the mail everyday when they were a kid. It’s most likely synonymous with other mom-wear labels such as “Talbots,” “J. Jill,” and “Coldwater Creek.” But I also assume that most guys out there haven’t opened those Lands’ End catalogues lately. Because, if they had, they would likely have different and much better opinion of the brand.
Lands’ End started back in the 1960s as a sailboat racing outfitter and has since evolved into a supplier of affordable, classic American style rags. Check out their website (landsend.com) and you’ll find excellent tailored fit oxfords for under $30, slimmer fitting (not skinny) khakis for under $40, and great sweaters under $50, not to mention an array of fantastic ties and scarves.
And, as if that’s not enough, Lands’ End just recently launched a new label, “Canvas” (canvas.landsend.com), that, once it releases its full collection in February, could potentially rival J. Crew for dominance in classically stylish and hip menswear market, only at $10-$30 less per item.
