Women's Short Sleeve Interlock Johnny Collar Top
nice for the sale price, shaped but roomy, am between an 8&10 and ordered small, sewing on placket is a little sloppy, but not enough to return it.

I like the polished look of a collared shirt under a sweater, but I always feel like I am wearing a straightjacket when I wear a woven shirt under a sweater, and woven shirts tend to feel bulky under sweaters to boot. I thought this would be a great solution -- a jersey top with a nice white collar that would allow me the movement I like and that would be smooth and not bulky under a sweater.
Just got the shirt. Although it's a bit expensive for what it is, it was what I was looking for. Unfortunately it is HUGE. I usually wear a size 4 blouse or an XS top at Lands End. There was no XS for this product, so I ordered an XS petite. I was worried it would be too small, but It was enormous. No sweater of mine would fit over this! I'm slender but I am by no means the most petite lady customer you have and yet there is no smaller size for me in this shirt! Lands End: please adjust your sizing for this product so it is true to size and please offer it in an XS Misses so it will be long enough to tuck in.

Fit was too "fitted" - for me
I bought a Medium, my usual size, in black - it fit but was too snug for my liking. I like tops a bit looser, more comfortable, but if you like a closer fit, then this shirt would be a good choice, I think. I saw, after I ordered it, that the description said something like "slightly fitted" - had I seen that earlier I would have ordered the 3/4 length johnny collar shirt which is sized a big looser, same shirt, just a little different for women who prefer a bit more room.
So I'd recommend this top, with the caveat that it's more of a "Fit 2" and the 3/4 sleeve version is a "Fit 3" - knowing that you can easily pick the right fit.
The fabric: I love it. I know I know it's not all cotton, but in the last couple of years all cotton shirts have shrunk and pulled out of shape and I could only wear them once before I wouldn't wear them again - adding some poly to the cotton solves this problem and really, while the idea of a blend is something some people find just horrible, what I find horrible is only being able to wear a top once before it's ready for the rag bag. So this blended fabric is fine with me, it feels more like cotton of the old days than the current cotton being offered feels - and it washes beautifully.
So: good shirt, just too fitted for my taste.

Way too big!
I bought 3 of these because I have the 3/4 sleeve version and love them. I wanted a polo type shirt without the buttons. Sadly, I returned all 3. I'm normally a size medium in LE clothes...these were huge on me, and not just a bit big, they swam on me. There was no hoping they'd shrink a bit in the dryer with this fit. Very disappointing.

NICE BUT HUGE!!
The shirt is awesome but I ordered the large as I do not like skin tight shirts and this one is HUGE.
Order a size down! Its swimming on me and since its not 100% cotton it will not shrink.
Otherwise, its very nice.
