My custom shirt from Land’s End arrived yesterday. Here’s the short version: meh.
The fabric is lovely, the workmanship fabulous, but the fit, not so much. The sleeve length is perfect, but the body of the shirt fits like an oversized potato sack. If I’d ordered the plain back instead of a center pleat, I’d consider taking this into the tailor and have some darts added, but alas, it’s getting a one-way ticket back to Wisconsin. Frankly, I can get a much better fit straight off the rack from Talbot’s.
