The Heritage Poplin Shirt
It's just about perfect
It fits well, but not too slim. Please don't stop making this shirt.

Comfortable, slender cut, thin material
The poplin fabric is soft and comfortable. The cut of the shirt is quite trim. There is no room for an extra 20 lbs here. (I bought size Small, and I usually wear 14.5x32.) The collar is quite slender and would not cover many ties around the back of the neck. So this shirt can't really be worn as a dress shirt. My one true complaint about the shirt is that the fabric is so thin. My undershirt shows through. So a deep-cut V-neck is out, but a crew-neck t-shirt (especially solid color) would look fine underneath this shirt.

Nice fit, thin fabric
The shirt fits really well and the fabric feels nice and soft on the skin. The fabric is very thin though and the collar too small for my liking.
Thanks for the very friendly and competent customer service and the fast delivery to Germany!

Feels great, rather slim
The fabric feels great and it fits well. A great casual shirt. Not a shirt with extra room if you're overweight, however.

It's light, it's smooth, and it fits!
Crisp, sleek, quality product that men of all ages (who are in decent shape) should own. The white one rules, as it serves as an impeccable canvas for anything you throw on with it.

Nice summer-weight shirt
The fabric is very light and thin, which makes this the ideal summer shirt. It's a little bit sheer, but not very noticeably, especially if worn with an undershirt. Good quality fabric, and a nice, slim fit.

The Good: These shirts bring about a nostalgic sentiment within me. The reason they do so, is because the cotton used in these shirts is the same used in the poplins made during LEC's first season (2009). These shirts were incredible-- cheap, durable and soft. Today, LEC uses a lothe contour) is pretty good. Living in the United States, one is accustomed to oversized shirts, I'd imagine a first time customer who w grade cotton that's rough and crinkly. The cut of the shirt (that is typically buys mall rubbish, while find these shirts well fitting.
The bad: Perhaps more colours? By more colours I mean practical colours-- Burgundy, Forest green, Black, Navy, some form of biege, Different hues of red,etc.
The Ugly: Like other LEC shirts, the prices have risen to unjustifiable levels. Despite, cotton prices having stablized (fallen as of Aug 2011) These shirts have risen in price $15. Quality has not gotten any better.
Final Thoughts: These shirts are a true stable of LEC. The cotton is higher quality then the other patterned poplins sold by LEC. However, the sudden price increases do not justify the stagnant quality. Barring an emergency, I cannot suggest purchasing these at full price, despite them being one of LEC's better items. I would wait for a coupon.
Suggested target price 20-35 dollars.

Not as nice as other poplins here
I'm 5'7", 160 lbs, and ordered the medium. It fits, but this shirt seems quite a bit roomier than the other poplins I've ordered. Also, it had and issue with fraying at the seam. It's not a terrible shirt, but there are better options here.

Fits true to size in the chest and shoulders with good sleeve length. I put fits slightly big just because, like almost all off the rack shirts, it needs to be tailored in the waist for a more slim fit.
