Men's Plaid Poplin Shirt
My husband has two of these and wears them year round...with a sweater in the winter and with the sleeves rolled up in the summer. I think he'd wear them every day if it was socially acceptable! He's 6 ft. and about 185 and a large fits well. We haven't had a problem with the length like others. The Mineral Sky Plaid is really nice.

The shirt arrives in a tight ball and emerges as a wrinkled mess. I can't believe it was shipped this way. My first one arrived and was too small, so I ordered a size up. The second one arrived in a wad as well. I can appreciate the appeal of a rumpled shirt, but this goes too far. I like the slim fit, but the large size is too short for a 6'3", 185 lb. guy. Will probably wear it untucked. Fabric feels nice. Good color.

Excellent shirts for the pricepoint
I'm 6.1 and 175 pounds with a slim build and these shirts fit fantastic! I ordered 3 medium shirts with the hopes they wouldn't be too baggy or too tight. Well, they are right on the money. The sleeves are perfect length and the bottom of the shirts look great both tucked and untucked. The chest area fits well without being too fitted or too loose. The collar offers buttons to wear with ties or to wear unbuttoned for a more laid back look. l would hurry up and order these while they are on sale. I will be purchasing the other colors now as well!

This shirt is way too short
I just bought this shirt. I am 6,1' and weigh 180. It is TOO SHORT to even tuck in my Lands End shorts! Nice color, and don't mind the tailored fit but the length is only going to get shorter with each washing. Will not buy it again! Too bad cause I like the plaid and light weight.

4 sails - Stylish and comfortable
I picked these up on sale, which really was an unbeatable deal. I can't give it the full five sails because of the sizing. I usually wear a medium (5'11, 160) but I felt that the medium was far too big in the chest. I had to return it in store and opted for a small. I always thought the Canvass line was meant to be more slim fit and modern, so I was a little disappointed in the confusing sizing. Still, even if I must wear a size down, I like the shirts.

Small to size
I always buy XL without a problem, but this XL fits very small. Unfortunately, was sent to laundry prior to wearing. Disappointed with the shirt.

I like them
I like the shirts so much, I bought 3 of a different color.
Go one size up as it is rather small.
If you do it be aware that sleeves will be longer in
proportion to a shirt's size.
I just rolled them up one roll and it did it.
They come pretty tumbled so either wear it like that
or iron it. They are not wrinkle free.
All in all I like them.

Nice design and colors
My young adult son now owns three of this shirt, in different colors and patterns. These are his favorite shirts. Fabric is excellent weight, being heavy and crisp enough to hold its shape but thin and soft enough to be comfortable and offer a clean, fitted line. It's a great shirt for a thin build especially, since it is a more modern slim cut. Only negative is that it is a little wrinkled when it comes out of the dryer. Son gets away with it at college, but it looks better when mom can add a bit of ironing. I would give it a 4.5 rating based on this. Will definitely buy more of these, so hope it stays in the catalog!

Sizing is disappointing
The sizing in the Canvas line is unfortunate and disappointing. My husband loves the regular poplin shirts and I bought two in XL for Christmas. I didn't realize how small the XL would be. While all other LE shirts in XL fit perfectly, this one was tight in the arms and waist. I don't know if they offer an XL (it wasn't available when I ordered my Christmas presents), and I don't understand why the sizing in Canvas is different. Are only skinny-ish, shorter men the target market?
The packaging for the shirts was ridiculous. Both shirts were balled up and tucked into the collars, stretching the buttons out to the extent that on one shirt, the button would not stay buttoned; I don't know if that collar will ever button correctly. The shirts were also extremely wrinkled, to the point that I had to iron them. I'm shocked LE would ship something that arrives in that kind of shape.
I can't recommend this shirt, and I won't be buying any Canvas items again.

The fit on the shirt seemed good, but the wrong pattern/color was sent
This shirt fit well on my husband, who has broad shoulders and a narrow waist. However, the wrong pattern/color was sent, and by the time we received it, the color/size he wanted was sold out. We returned and will not repurchase unless the pattern and size he wanted is restocked.
