Men's Plaid Poplin Shirt
The perfect poplin shirt!
I have a number of these poplin shirts from LEC now and they are just about perfect. The material is nice and thick (you can even hear it when you move!) and the fit is spot on. I really can't nitpick anything about it. Gonna grab some more.

Do You Like Surprises?
I am a photographer.
I know there is such a challenge with photographing anything -- a person, an object, a flower --
hue, saturation, white balance -- what a difference it makes with the images.
Wow, the Small shirt fits me great.
Sleeve length = perfect.
Width of sleeves = great (even the 'real' LE tailored shirt is not tapered in the sleeves - really!
Fabric fun = I enjoy wearing these shirts.
However, here's the rub . . .
you really can't judge these shirts based on the images on the website. The colors are just different.
More than once, I've been a bit disappointed.
More than once, I've been pleasantly surprised.
However, but I know that when I place an order, I am going to be surprised.
Love the sale prices -- I don't pay full price for very many things.
Just realize the colors you see may not be what you receive all crumpled up in a tiny plastic bag when it arrives.

Sized down for a perfect fit
I am 6'2", 175lbs, 38" chest, wear 32x34 pants, and usually buy a slim medium or small dress shirt with 34/35 sleeves. I hesitate to order small shirts because I need plenty of sleeve length, so I ordered a medium in this shirt but it was big. Mistake. I bought a small and it's perfect. Cool pattern, nice sleeve and body length. Happy!

Fit me perfectly
I'm 27, about 5'8" (1.78m), weigh 167lbs-ish, "athletic" frame and wear a 15.5/34 and 31" pants. I wear a M in just about every brand. I would liken the fit of these shirts to the J Crew Slim Fit secret wash casual shirt line. So, these shirts fit me perfectly and are a GREAT, stylish cut. The quality of the fabric doesn't feel as nice as the aforementioned product, but still feels great. Especially great value at this price point (sale + further 30% off). Highly recommended.

I bought this shirt for my husband who is tall (6'3") and very skinny. The shirt (xl) fits perfectly in the arms which is his biggest pet peeve about buying shirts but the shirt isn't as slim cut as he'd like. Going down in size would mean that the arm length would shrink too, so instead I'll just take the shirt in to make it a slimmer fit.

Can't find a fault
Great fit and great color. Can't find any complaint except that I don't have all the color ways. Fits slim, but not painted on. Color is amazing. Ordering more today.

It's a great design and style
It's great quality and the fabric seems strong. My main complaint is that it's too long, but I'll blame that on my height (5'7") and not the shirt. Other than that I am happy with my purchase

My favorite shirts
I have both the Bourdeaux and Evergreen Forest and they are my favorite fall shirts. Can be dressed up for dressed down (obviously not for very formal occasions). The fit is excellent, slim but not skin tight and easy to live in. I've received multiple compliments on both shirts.

Hope LE uses the orange and blue plaid in the future.
I fell in love with the orange and blue plaid, could not stop thinking about it. In reality the colors are more muted but it lived up to my expectations in regard to color, pattern, and fabric. Unfortunately I sent it back, as it was not flattering to my shoulders but that is not LE's fault. It is a man's shirt and I am a woman, so I really can't comment on fit. They should offer these in tall sizes though, I was a little disappointed they didn't when I was ordering. The length is actually a teeny bit longer than American Eagle shirts, so no complaints there, but still like the option of talls.

New Favorite Shirt
I love this shirt it is just the right weight; barely heavier than other brands of poplin shirts, but heavy enough to resist wrinkles and soft enough to be super comfortable. The colors are deep and rich as well. And the fit is perfect.
