With the huge success of J Crew, there have been a lot of classic American brands trying to rethink and redefine their look. While the brand's style is not as original as J Crew, they certainly are less expensive and provides an additional location to buy some of the classic American Prep pieces. A perfect example of this is: Land's End Canvas, good clothes, great prices with a few pieces unique to the designer.
Rugby Shirt - this classic preppy item comes in either navy or light blue and is sold for only $45. I can be worn with jeans or khakis by itself or it can be thrown on over a button down shirt, as featured here. Thrown over a button down shirt, is my favorite look for a Rugby Shirt. It adds a little more style and character to the classic piece.
Chambray Shirts - Land's End takes the essential chambray shirt one step farther by offering a blue with white stripe, like shown above. As well as a whole line of colors, including a tan and an off-white. They also priced the shirt at $39, instead of close to $100 as seen at other stores.
Ties - Also available are some nice modern ties. They have a classic navy and light blue rep tie as well as a gingham, a plaid and patterned tie. And they are only $40, which is a great price. They are also slim ties.
Hoodie - We all need a hoodie or two in the closet. Land's End Canvas offers a modern looking hoodie for only $50. The hoodie comes in navy or gray with white drawstrings and zipper. The contrasting zipper and drawstrings are a good look adding interest to an otherwise average looking hoodie.
Peacoat - They also have a canvas peacoat. This a great spring/summer jacket for a reasonable $80. This coat will keep you dry in the rain and warm during the summer night winds.
Pocket Squares - one of the most unique and different items that Land's End Canvas sells is the plaid and gingham pocket squares. They are sold for $9 a piece and can really add a nice spark to a jacket.
