Stripe Oxford Sheet Set or Pillowcase
Substantial and Comfortable
Sheets these days are so thin and flimsy, and overly smooth (sateen, oh my!). I was dying for some real linen sheets, like my grandmother used to have, the kind where they just improve with age. Unfortunately linen sheets are completely out of my price range. These however are a great substitution. Made from a wonderful, substantial cotton, they have a tiny bit of texture, which I love. They are not scratchy or stiff. They are soft and comfortable, while not having that almost slick texture other sheets have. They are very well made, and the button detailing on the pillow case is great - no more pillow peeking out from its case in the morning. These sheets are keepers, and I plan on getting a couple more sets. I would love to see more patterns and colors.

Won't buy any other sheets, ever
We LOVE these sheets. They are substantial and thick and cozy, and do not slide off of the bed or come loose from the super-thick mattress. At first, I thought that maybe they wouldn't feel soft enough, as they really do feel different from the standard slick and slippery sheets I've always had. Just like an oxford shirt. But now I am hooked, forever! The top sheet also stays in place and doesn't end up in a rumpled twister at my feet, and the pillowcases feel so luxurious on my face. I can't say enough about how much I love these sheets. I have two sets now, and so far, they've held up wonderfully from being washed and dried. They keep getting softer, but never flimsy.

My favorite sheets
I love having these on my bed...it must be the weave. They feel differently from any other sheets I have and are terrific for hot weather when you want something light. The only way I can describe them is that they are like sleeping in your boyfriend's shirt...super comfy.

Best Sheets Ever!
I had never owned Oxford sheets before and was a bit hesitant to order these. I sure am glad I did. After washing them twice and putting on my bed, I was very pleased with their soft feel and cozy comfort! I have a pillow top on a king bed and they fit perfectly. I couldnt be more pleased with this purchase!

I, too, was a little hesitant about buying these sheets after reading some negative reviews. I loved the idea of oxford cloth, but certainly didn't want my sheets to feel scratchy or rough. I'm so glad that I took a chance on them. They feel WONDERFUL. I washed them twice before using them, and they are lovely. Substantial and soft. They look great too, and I was impressed with the deep pockets and their ultra-sturdy construction. I can't imagine the seams ever tearing or losing elasticity. I've always loved the feel of borrowing my husband's button-down (and we all know women look adorable in them); now the whole bed has that look and feel. Love it.

If you hate sateen sheets
Looking for the "old fashioned" percale feel, heavier cotton sheet of the 1950's? Here's your answer. This fabric is your husband's oxford cloth shirt fabric. Very little wrinkling out of the dryer, nicely oversized pockets, and never look "slept in" when making the bed each morning. They feel "room temperature" and could suffice in warmer weather without a blanket. Washed once before using and couldn't wish them to become any softer. I like a crisp "hand" to my sheets. PLEASE Lands End, make these in more colors - what about olive, gray, and burgndy? The buttoned pillow cases are special - but the buttons are TINY. Would like a little larger, flater button. Would give these 100 stars. You'll never regret the price.

Sheets with a substantial feel and a good fit. LOVE THEM!
I read some of the reviews and was hesitant to buy these. I'm glad I did. I think they're terrific in every way. The fit is really good (I've recently experienced HUGE and way-too-small sheets from discount, past-season stores). My mattress is about 9" thick.
To those people that said they're scratchy: They're oxford cloth, which has a textured hand. If you don't know and love this fabric, go with something else.
On the cost: You really do get what you pay for.

Rave Reviews Were Correct...Thank You!
One of the greatest aspects of online shopping are reviews by customers. I truly appreciate that people have taken the time to help me get the best products and value. As a result, I take time to review products that are unique and valued. All the excellent reviews about these sheets made me decide to go with them. Also, the suggestion to wash them a few times make a huge difference in their initial comfort. I have never had such a nice set of sheets. They are extremely comfortable and great here in our Maine winters because they are not freezing when you climb in bed (also mentioned in reviews). Flannel sheet are too hot for me and this is a nice alternative. They are also large and stay on the bed and fit my 6' 4" frame. I will keep it simple and say I am delighted. I realized tonight that there are buttons on the pillow case which is a nice touch. In summary, these are great sheets, they need to be washed three or four times to soften them and then enjoy! Thank you Lands End for another great product.

Excellent, comfortable sheets
I was hesitant in purchasing these sheets due to their price, but I was not dissappointed in my purchase. My husband and I do not like slippery, sateen type sheets because we find they do not "breathe". (They tend to be cold when you get into bed but then can become hot as the night progresses.) These sheets from Lands End are downright perfect. They are not cold when you get into bed and remain just so comfortable throughout the night. The material is substantial and washes wonderfully. I have a large queen matress and have no problem fitting these sheets on our bed. I no longer use any of my other sheet sets and just wash these Lands End sheets and return them to our bed. Even my husband commented on the comfort and quality of these sheets....and he never notices much! It was one of my best purchases ever. I am grateful EVERY night for these sheets.

I LOVE these!
I just got these, washed them and put them on the bed yesterday. They are made of thick cotton, and altho a little stiff (newness), they are not at all scratchy. I love the durability. I was also impressed that they easily fit a deep queen mattress with room for possible shrinkage over time. I'm thinking of ordering another set right now, because when these wear out years from now, I'll miss them!
