Men's Dress Code Long Sleeve Blend Herringbone Shirt
I bought 4 of these shirts - 3 white and 1 blue. Here are my thoughts after a month or so of having them:
Size - my shirt size is 16.5/35 but since this was going to be my first purchase of this brand I varied my order a bit (by half inch each way) to ensure that I got at least one that was a good fit. It turns out that they're all precisely measured and so 2 are perfect fit and 2 others are close enough to not even notice.
Fabric - I was drawn to this because I was looking for herringbone shirts. The pattern is exactly what I was looking for - subtle but unmistakably classy. The fabric is light and resists wrinkling quite well. The overall feel is high-quality and it wears very coolly and comfortably.
Build quality - this is a well-made shirt, with all the nicer touches one would expect on a far more expensive shirt. Seams are precise and neatly finished. Collars and cuffs are smoothly flat. There are no loose threads anywhere in sight. Collar, sleeve and waist measurements are accurate. Standard touches - spare buttons and removable collar stays.
Cons - Limited colour choice. I would have liked a few more pastels - sky blue, pink, cream/beige
Monogramming - This is a plus (+) and minus (-) for me. Plus (+) because its great to get this feature at this price point. Minus (-) I chose two locations for my 4 shirts - 2 left chest and 2 left cuff. I'm fine with the ones on the cuff - perfect size, colour and execution. The one on the chest however was much larger (appx. 2" x 1") than I expected - and it is above the pocket, rather than on the pocket itself. The overall effect of that location and size is to turn the monogram into what seems like a company logo rather than the understated identifier I expected it to be.
CONCLUSION - I can't wait to buy more of these shirts, especially if new colours come out. Great job Landsend!

Good fit and finish.
I only wish same shirt was available with black buttons, although it is what was advertised. I like the collar shape and height.

Great Looking Shirt
I ordered this shirt for my husband because it's a current style/color (Black dress shirt) without being trendy. He's pretty conservative in his taste for clothing, so I wasn't sure he'd like it. He did! It looks great on him, "with the times" and age appropriate (He's 46). It's great quality, like all Land's End shirts we buy, so I have no doubt that it will hold up well. The fit was perfect, very flattering on him!

One of my favorite shirts
Good quality and it fits perfectly. Comes out unwrinkled from the dryer. Nothing more that I can ask from a shirt.

This is a great shirt!
The shirt fits like a dream. The material is wonderful and easy to care for.

Too Large for me
The shirt quality seemed OK. The neck and sleeve size seemed a little large and the overall fit was too large as the shoulder seam was down my upper arm and the chest was too baggy. I have a short build and sizing can be tricky for me. The back of the shirt has a folded crease which none of my other shirts have and I really do not care for. I returned this shirt.

Well Made Shirt
This is a well made shirt and the fabric is excellent quality. Soft and doesn't wrinkle easily.This rivals shirts costing twice as much.

Really Nice Shirt
Very nice dressy fabric that is silky, comes out of the dryer with nary a wrinkle and doesn't need ironing. Love the teal color.
