It’s on sale: Lands’ End and Lands’ End Canvas — The Friends and Family sale for both sites has been extended thru Tuesday, offering 30% off with code FRIENDS and PIN 3010

Going through some of their newer releases, I noticed this denim shirt jacket from Lands’ End the mariner jacket, which are on sale for $69 and $56 respectively. I’m not huge into workwear, however, I do like the look of these jackets. 

The mainline jacket, unfortunately, doesn’t come in a size smaller than medium — and given their sizing that may put some of you out of luck on that version. Still, the LEC version looks pretty cool and it’s cheaper, too.

It’s on sale: 40% off Lands’ End Canvas — Both Lands’ End Canvas and mainline Lands’ End are offering 40% off any single item through the end of today. Use code LEAVES with PIN 9876. 
I received an email from reader Yaakov who bought this LEC navy blazer during their last sale and had a mini-review of it. A few things he noted:

First off, the lining is great. It’s half-lined in cotton, and it really makes a difference. The jacket feels very light in comparison to some other LE jackets I’ve tried.
The shoulders are unstructured, which is nice, especially for me. I fill out on the larger end of the 40R spectrum, so it looks pretty nice.
Buttons are not functional, so for some that’s a plus. (Sleeve length is nice on me, so wouldn’t have minded.) Buttons are a a bit of stark contrast to me — a “bright” brown — but for some again, that’ll be a plus.
My biggest problem with the jacket was the slight collar gap that it created between my shirt and the jacket. For some, (again) not a problem, but for nitpickers it might get annoying.

For what it’s worth in regards to collar gap, that happens for a variety of reasons. Mainly, your body just may not be suited for the jacket. Also, I’ve seen folks with shorter collar points (aka, “skinny” collars that are on-trend right now) experience collar gap quite frequently. So, the blazer might work out for you, but you’d never really know unless you try it on — them’s the breaks with online retail.

It’s on sale: Lands End Canvas navy wool blazer — A question I’m frequently asked is where one can get a navy wool blazer for “cheap”. My usual advice is, “Go thrifting, that’s where I bought two of mine,” but I understand that’s not for everyone (even now it’s pretty tough for me to get to thrift stores in the city sans a vehicle). 
So, this navy wool blazer from Lands End Canvas caught my attention. It’s 100% wool with cotton lining (polyester lining in the sleeves to make it easier to put on), corozo-nut buttons, patch flap front pockets and I believe it’s even dual-vented in the back.  The only potential downside would be the surgeon cuffs. 
Still, for $175 on sale (down from $250), it’s worth a shot. Use code FRIENDSHIP with PIN 1520 to get 30% off. Sale ends October 2nd.

It’s on sale: Linen-cotton shirts from Lands End Canvas — While not 100% linen, these will probably wear cooler than most pure-cotton shirts and they’re cheap enough at $19.99 on sale (free shipping with an order of $50 or more with promo code FIREWORKS and PIN 7404).

It’s on sale: Lands’ End Canvas neckties and chukka boots — LEC continues their daily sales with 60% off shoes and accessories today. 

The desert boots come to just $38, which is a pretty good deal for a pair of summer beater shoes. The striped silk knit is $24 and the contrasting chambray-blade silk knit is $28.

It’s on sale: Lands’ End Canvas poplin shirts — For those on the ramen-noodle budget, LEC is having a sale on many of their shirts for $20 each. Plus, you get $20 off any order of $75 or more and free shipping with code PAPA and PIN 5130 — that brings the price to just $15 per shirt if you buy four of them.

Poplin is a bit lighter in terms of cotton shirting, but it also wrinkles a bit more than other types of cotton shirting. In my opinion, this makes it a decent choice of casual summer shirts, especially those with bright patterns that hide wrinkles and are less formal — perhaps worn with a pair of chinos and jacket-less. Might not be as cool to wear as madras or linen, but certainly a good alternative at this price. 

To see LEC’s shirts on sale, clockwise from upper left: large plaid, mini-stripebutton-down collar and checkered.

It’s on sale: Lands’ End & Lands’ End Canvas — The Memorial Day weekend sales continue. LE & LEC are offering 30% off plus free shipping on orders over $50 with code FLAG and PIN 1122. 
It’s worth noting the discount code applies to sale items, too. I picked up this navy cardigan sweater blazer from LEC, which I’ve had my eye on for a while, for $53 — that’s about a third of it’s $150 original retail price. 
(Unfortunately, the sale doesn’t apply to their Allen Edmonds shoes.)

It’s on sale: Lands’ End — Everything at Lands’ End is on sale right now, with an extra 30% off with code ENJOY30 with PIN 1850. And this includes merchandise already on sale and also Lands’ End Canvas. Plus, you get free shipping if you spend $50 or more.

(Unfortunately, their Allen Edmonds shoes are not included.)

You can definitely pick up a Put This On co-signed suit and trousers for about $150 total, which is a really good deal if you don’t have a basic suit yet (or just need some workhorse ones on the cheap).

But, it’s really worth checking out their sale section as you’ll find quite a few great deals — and the extra 30% off stacks on top of their clearance items. 

Worth checking out:

Sale ends midnight on Monday.

Is this a sweater?

Not sure how I feel. But interesting.

I think I like it, but I’d worry about fit. That 4-row button stance is kinda imposing. Although, if it’s a sweater-like material, then it’d be great to wear around the house or just on quick errands. 
Downside? No breast pocket for a pocket square.

Lands' End Canvas Friends & Family Sale

For those of you on the ramen-noodle budget and find the Brooks Brothers sale still out of your price range, Lands’ End Canvas is having a 25%-off sale right now, too. Use coupon code SAVE25 with PIN 1231 through September 27.

New fall-winter arrivals at Lands’ End Canvas — A few things look interesting, but I think they’re a bit overpriced at the moment. I’m not sure why that grey herringbone blazer is $240. Also, their jackets again have functional surgeon cuffs, which is frustrating for pretty much all of us. (Shoutout to thisfits for the head’s up that these new items were up.)

It’s on sale: Lands’ End Canvas chino blazer — On sale now for $32 after using discount code CANVASDEALS with pin 8265, which drops 20% off all their on-sale items. I know menswear bloggers throw around terms like “essential” and “staple” a lot (guilty), but for those of you on the Ramen Noodle Budget who still might need a casual blazer, this could be a pretty good deal. Downside: they have surgeon cuffs. So, it’s probably worth talking with their customer service to see if it’s going to fit you. And on the upside Lands’ End has a very nice returns policy.

ADDING from onesandtwos:

Got numerous fit posts in the blue blazer, also if anyone needs measurements on the 38, hit me up. As and FYI, it seems the half lining could be cut out without major work after (it’s poly).

Lands’ End Canvas summer sale highlights

This weekend a whole bunch of retailers are pushing their sales quite heavily. Lands’ End Canvas is having their summer sale and I think some of their discounts are rather reasonable. There’s also free shipping for orders over $50 if you use code CANVASDEALS with pin number 6266.

Chambray blazer, $50 — My roommate actually has this and likes it. Beware that it actually looks more like washed denim than chambray, which you can’t really tell from this photo:

Chino blazer (khaki and navy), $50:

Red slim-fit chinos, $22:

Cotton peacoat (navy and khaki), $39:

Suede boat shoes (orange and red), $50:

Poplin pocket squares, $6:
