I've read the thoughts of plenty of bloggers on Lands' End and its validity as a traditional company. Sure, Lands' End doesn't produce the same landmark products for which L.L. Bean is known. Sure, it's suddenly trendy among the hipsters and Americana crowds to shop Lands' End Canvas, but the quality, price points and product variety of the original line are unquestionable.
When not browsing the thrift shops, I occasionally check out the Lands' End website and always end up quite happily surprised. The benefit of shopping Lands' End is the incredible value to come out of the site's countless sale items. Also, you can get just about anything monogrammed for around five dollars. I planned to display some of the items, but I can't seem to get a single image up. Instead, I'll give you a rundown of some of the best pieces.
