School Uniform Long Sleeve Oxford Shirt
too small overall
This shirt is required by my daughters school. I had to send this shirt back three times and still have the same problem with the shirt. I ordered a kids xl which is my daughters normal size, sent it back for a juniors 1,3, and finally a five. If my daughter raises her arms you can see her abdomen. Fits tight in the arm/chest area.

Junior Tops Run Small Across Chest and Shoulders and Sleeves are Tight
Re: Junior Uniform Sizes...At 5'5" and 5'6", our high school aged daughters are normally a size 3 and 5 in Juniors clothing outside of Lands' End. This was our first experience with Lands' End Uniforms and we were only ordering tops through the Uniform Store. According to the measurements on the size chart, they'd both be a size 1, but shoulder seams were far too narrow, chest was much too tight, and sleeve circumference was too small. Sleeve length and torso/waist fit well.
The Short Sleeve shirts run a bit larger than the Long Sleeve shirts across chest/shoulders/sleeve circumference, so we ended up with sizes 3 and 5 in the Short Sleeve and sizes 5 and 7 in the Long Sleeve shirts. The fleece jacket and both cardigan and pullover sweaters fit well in size Small.
Unfortunately, we couldn't find a store that carried Junior sizes, to try on before ordering, so we've had to order online and return to stores three times. The customer service is fantastic! They've made it as pleasant an experience as possible with each order and return. Just wish for the company's sake and our sake, that stores carried the Uniform clothing in a sample of sizes, so we could try it on, before ordering. Wish the fabric had a softer feel, but it does look like it'll hold up well, and the top stitching is nicely done, which gives it a quality look.

Shoulder seams not placed correctly
The shoulder seam was not in the correct place. When I moved the seam to the correct location the sleeves where to short and the shoulder was bulky.

Nice shirt, but be careful how you size yourself. The junior sizes are meant for girls without much room for chest. However, the adult had the same size waist with extra chest room. Perfect!

Had to return
We found the new sizing doesn't work well for my daughter. The shirt was way too wide and sloppy looking.

Really weird fabric

Shirt fits like a box...too much material.
My daughter wanted these for school. Because they are not made in junior sizes, we had to go with girls sizing. Very unshapely and non-flattering! Will be returning this and the 3/4 sleeve.

Woman's cuffs and plackets too narrow & buttons too small
I like the dark blue color but the fabric seems coarse and on a larger woman's size the small buttons seem too tiny. The front placket and the sleeve cuffs were each too narrow.
Although this is the first time I have tried anythng from their school uniform category, the styling of the entire blouse just seems off compared to the traditional Lands' End quality I have known for more than two decades.

"straight jackets" to keep your kids "straight"
While I am not a particularly fond of oxford shirts, these,I am even less fond of. The material is stiff and not comfy, especially for kids to wear. Also, they are sewn funny- they fit tight across the back. I purchased this for both my daughters in two different age groups, and they both had them fit tight in the back. After several returns, we finally got the correct bigger sizes than they wear, but still not happy with them. The buttons and button holes are very small too. It will be interesting to see how much longer it takes to get dressed in the morning as my daughter had problems just trying them on. Overall, it has not been an enjoyable experience. In lands end defense, there customer service in return has been pleasant, just not the hassle of returning or exchanging them in the first place. I'm not sure if the kids will be able to concentrate on school work, since they will probably be thinking about how uncomfortable they will be.
