Stripe Oxford Sheet Set or Pillowcase
These sheets are fantastic!
I have become quite the textile junkie in recent years. One thing I have always held to a high standard is my bedding, even before becoming a textile junkie. I've been learning a lot about how textiles are made, and I've been wanting a bed set from The Oriole Mill. (Yea, look that up and cry a bit) well I can't afford their sets. The quality of these sheets from lands end will hold up for years, no they aren't made in America, but they are incredibly well made. I was worried because I couldn't tell how deep the pockets on the fitted sheets are, and if they would fit over my monster mattress with topper. We must have an 18 inch mattress and these fit well, all the way down and under all the corners. All the sheets I've bought from high end big box type department stores fit the depth, but they seem to skimp on fabric because they never cover the sides of the mattress all the way down. These cover all the way down the entire mattress and even go under the sides a little too. The button detail on the pillow cases is super cute and I did not expect that the buttons would be such good quality. They are nice and thick and look like they will actually keep the pillowcase shut. Nice work Landsend, I've been converted for life. I will be slowly switching my entire linen closet over and all my kids beds too. I'm particularly happy that they are Oeko-tex certified and if you don't know what that is, look into that too, great information.

I have found the perfect sheets for fit, comfort and color!
I have been looking for the fresh, crispy sheets that were always on my bed when I visited my Gran. She washed them and hung them outside to dry. They would go from the clothes line to our beds. I used to love the crispness as we gave them a shake and put them back on the beds. As to other reviews that compared the feeling these sheets have to a husbands shirt, they are absolutely correct. I'm so thrilled I finally found the sheets I've missed for most of my adult life that I'll be ordering another set. It would be great to see a solid color to mix with the stripes. I always read reviews before I make a purchase and am very grateful for that guidance. While some reviews mentioned that the price was a bit high, I have absolutely no problem paying for this comfort every time I slip into these sheets. As I've told many of my friends, these are some serious sheets!

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.
