Women's Mock Turtleneck
Great material but very odd Fit
I ordered two of these in Large although I'm a Tall medium. Both had an odd fit at the shoulders/armpits that could be felt when reaching my arms forward. The material got uncomfortably tight in the Dusty Coral but was more generous in the Blue.
They were both made in different countries which was a surprise for me as they were the same Mock but just in different colors. The Blue one was made in Jordan and is super soft and well made. It is very loose fitting but I LOVE the color so will keep it. I'm 6' 3" tall and the sleeves are just right on the blue one and the cuffs aren't as tight or shorter as the Coral.
I'll be wearing this under a vest or Blazer and then the large chest/waist won't show.

Neck and Cuff sizes vary
Contrary to the opinion of many others, I found the neck and cuffs of the mock turtle necks made in Cambodia,
specifically the purple orchid color, to be pleasantly snug and fitting just right. On the other hand, those made in Jordan, such as the deep lilac, had necks and cuffs that tended to be a bit too loose, which is so often found in plus sized, cuffed sleeves. I bought six of these two colors, and found that the material was just the right weight and was soft against the skin. I will be keeping all of them, since the price was very good. I usually wear these tops around the house or for informal occasions such as grocery shopping, etc.

A little too short
I love to wear turtleneck and mock turtleneck even better. Love the fabric, very soft. Don't like the styling, too straight and a little bit short, doesn't show curve line. Regretly I have to return it for a refund.

I have purchased several of these mock turtles in different colors to wear. They are warm, cozy and the fit is perfect. They have just enough of something in them, likely lycra, that they spring back into shape when the cuffs are pulled up then pushed back down. I have laundered them many times, sometimes by hand, and they always come out nice looking.
The fit is just right, neither tight nor baggy. I usually wear them under other shirts but sometimes just with a scarf to dress them up.
I am a college professor in Shanghai, China. The picture is of me with some of my Chinese friends and the mock turtle is from Land's End.

Sooo pleased to have cuffs that fit and keep on fitting with wear, instead of stretching. Same for neck, and I can even put it on without taking off my glasses!

Neck is unbelievably tight!
Again, I am disappointed in this turtleneck. So tight to get around my head and flimsy material. I already sent it back, which costs the consumer money.

Cuffs and Neck Too Tight
While the body of the shirt fit well, the cuffs and the neck were far too tight. It was difficult to get my head through the neck opening. I had already taken the tags off of the garment, so I wound up giving it away. I was very disappointed.

I was very pleasantly surprised to find that this mock turtleneck was of such good quality. Lately Land's End women's blouses & tops have been of very thin material & not good quality. This mock has the fabric thickness you would expect & want from a well made, high quality turtleneck. Excellent quality & value & it kept it's shape and color after washing.

Collar, cuffs faded
I loved the lilac color, and it was on sale. It fit perfectly, but then I washed it before wearing, and the mock turtleneck and the cuffs are now a different color, kind of pink. It was noticeable right away. I would not recommend, at least not the lilac color.

Beautiful Color and Fit
At first I was reluctant to order this concord grape mock turtle due to some of the reviews about the neck and cuffs being too tight. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the neck was only very slightly snug and the fit was perfect except for the torso length which is usually always longer than I prefer but much better than regular sizes! I am 5' 3 petite and small boned, 118 lbs. Really, I do not know of a company that has made a true petite length in tops for years but Lands End comes the closest. I know they were made because I still have some in my closet from years ago. I think? the trend was to lengthen because the taller women complained but now with Talls having their very own category why continue to lengthen the petite sizes? I would like to see true petite length offered again.
