Women's Silk Interlock Crew
perfect in every aspect
I have a very sensitive skin; and I feel the cold. As a result I wear silks, both in summer and winter; both for daytime wear, and as pyjamas at night. In the past, I have bought silk underwear, from two other online shops. And there is simply no comparison. Lands? End silks are delightful, a pleasure to wear, and delicately soothing against my skin. They are tailored gently for both superb, refined comfort and yet a relaxed fit. The cuffs don?t enlarge over time, as some brands do. And I?m happy to say, stay as consistently trim even after many washes, as when I bought them. Thanks Lands? End. Keep the good work up!

I love these tops!
I have several of these in crew and turtlenecks. They launder and hold up well. I love how thin they are and how easily you can pull a sweater on over them. The size is accurate.

Perfect - until washed.
I absolutely love these - when they are fresh out of the package - but be very careful washing them. The off-white in particular takes on the strangest streaks and colors - even when washed with only like colors and on gentle cycle. I have never tried to put them in the dryer - and won't. I wish I had hand washed them in Woolite?..

Excellent winter undergarment
I love this shirt, and bought it in several colors. I searched far and wide for a warm underlayer available in petite sizing (I am 5'3") and was so happy to find it at Lands End. The long sleeves do not keep revealing themselves, the shoulders are where they belong, yet the body is long enough to tuck in securely. This shirt is as fitted as an undergarment needs to be without feeling confining. It adds a soft, silky layer of warmth that is very welcome without being even the least bit bulky. In fact, a shirt or sweater will glide right over it.
If there is any downside, it is that the silk seems so delicate and fragile. It is prone to snagging. I don't mind that as I have the time and patience to handle it carefully, washing by hand (even though care instructions say you can machine wash) and hanging to dry.

Keeps me warm!
I love these tops! I waited for a sale to buy mine, since they're pretty pricey, but I love how luxurious they feel. I walk to work and have a job that requires me to go in and out, and these give me adequate warmth without being a layer that is too hot and needs to be removed when I go inside.
I am 5'7" with measurements 34-29-35, and I bought size XS. I don't have any problems with the sleeves or hems sticking out under the shirts I wear these over, but the neck sometimes peeks out a bit from the crew neck long-sleeve t-shirts I wear these with.
I have washed these both by hand and on the gentle cycle and had no problems. They do pill somewhat, but they're underneath everything, so I don't care.

These shirts are amazing!!!
I have been wearing these shirts for years. I wear them under ALL my shirts almost everyday in the winter. I even wear them under my dress shirts at work. I normally wear suits and dress shirts to work that in alone are not very warm and without these shirts i would be miserable. These silk undershirts allow me to wear thin dress shirts all year round. They are so thin and lightweight no one knows I have them on. They are lightweight, thin, and warm, but I am never too warm. AND they are machine washable!!! AMAZING! Please make it in a tank top!!!!! I know LE has the pinpoint, but I don't like the pinpoint material.
P.S. I know men that wear the mans version of this shirt and pants under their suits as well.

Not bad, if the pants worked.
Mediocre product. I would have kept it if the pants fit.

Nice to wear, but did anyone else have problems after washing?
I bought one of these crews in black to try and was immediately so impressed, I bought two more for myself plus one for my husband, also in black, and one for my mother. I wore it every day for a week, each night handwashing the garment in Woolite and cold water and then air-drying in the shower. Even after a week, when I would rinse the shirt, I would notice the color still running. With my husband's shirt, we used the delicate cycle and then air-dried it inside. The color has also faded compared with my two new ones which are still in the pack. I guess this is okay if you only want to wear the top as an undergarment. But it doesn't look as good as new after washing. For longevity, I prefer Heattech shirts by Uniqlo, which after three or four years of washing and machine drying, look like I just bought them.

This what just what I hoped it would be
Haven't tried out the warmness factor yet as it is summer in Australia, but it feels so good against my skin that I'll enjoy wearing it anyway. I was a little worried that the 2X I bought (because the 3X was not available) would be too tight but it is a generous fit and just slips on easily
