Giveaway & Review: New Men's Lands' End Mesh Polo Shirts (3 Winners) [CLOSED]


For the 15+ years I have known him, my husband's shirt of choice has always been the polo shirt (well, if you do not count the well-loved t-shirt with all the stains and the little holes).  I think he prefers polos because he can be comfortable, but still look presentable, whether he is wearing shorts, jeans, or khakis.  I also have to mention that my husband is one of the most particular men I have ever met when it comes to polo shirts, so he was the perfect candidate to try out the new Lands' End Mesh Polos for men.

For my husband, the sleeves on a polo cannot be too long nor too short.  The sleeves can be banded, but not restrictive.  No pockets are allowed.  They cannot be too lightweight so that the light shows through.  He prefers a mesh or pique to a jersey knit.  Stripes, patterns, and chest stripes are fine, but he does not like any tipping.  He is surprisingly flexible about shirt color and the number of buttons on the placket.

So, what did my husband think about the Lands' End Short Sleeve Original Banded Mesh Polo Shirt?  He thought that it was a nice heavy weight and it fit him extremely well.  We were both very pleased with how well it washed.  The collar was not misshapen after being washed and there was no shrinking, fading, or pilling.
