What's New at Lands End for Back to School 2015

The Lands' End Back to School catalog arrived in my mailbox this year in June when my daughter had 3 days left on the school year.  Kids in Virginia get out of school later than kids in most other states, but the back to school shopping season also seems to start earlier each year. 

When I browsed the catalog and found a few new or updated items that are definitely worth passing along. Below are a few of my favorites:

Boy's Perfect Shirt

Boy's Perfect Shirt
Mom's of little boys will be happy to hear about the new Boys' Perfect shirt.  It sounds so awesome, my husband will want to try one.

  • The armholes have been redesigned to give him more room to move.
  • The easy care fabric resists wrinkles so he can wear it straight from the dryer.
  • It has a comfort collar with an elastic tab button so it is never too tight.
  • They added stain release to the cuffs and the collar to keep them looking great.
  • The shirt wicks moisture, dries quickly and helps balance body temperature.

School Uniform Girls' Performance Zip-front Cardigan

Last year, we reviewed the Girls' Zip-front Drifter Cardigan. It became her favorite go-to sweater all year long. New this year, Lands' End is offering a similar zip-front sweater. The collar on this one is smaller, more like a traditional cardigan and the fabric is a cotton blend. We're definitely going to have to try it out this year.

  • Resists fading and pilling for long-lasting color and comfort
  • Easy-care blend feels soft as cotton
  • Fully-fashioned construction for a great fit
  • Full-zip front
  • Easy-moving raglan sleeves
  • 60% cotton/40% rayon-modal
  • Machine wash/Imported

    We reviewed and loved the School Uniform Girls' Button-front Ponté Skort last season. The quality held up so well, my daughter will be able to wear it again for another season.  This year, Lands' End took the button look and put it on the classic jumper. 

    • Easy-care convenience
    • Functional front placket
    • Top-of-knee length
    • 65% polyester/35% rayon blend
    • Polyester lining
    • Machine wash/Imported

    • Easy-care fabric resists pilling, fading & shrinkage
    • Rib-knit placket, cuff & pocket trim

      What's New at Children's Place for Back to School 2015

      I spent some time on the Children's Place site browsing for new items in the Uniform Collection.  The largest number of new items are the PE wear, or more casual clothing that is appropriate for Physical Education class.  I noticed and shared these items back in January.  In case you missed it, go take a look

      I also found a few pieces that appear to be new for this Back to School season.

      Girl's Skater Skirt

      I just love, love the look of this girls skater skirt. I just wish it also had built in knit shorts.  Since it doesn't, you'll also need to wear some bike shorts under it.  It is an above the knee length in a pull on style.  The fabric is blend of 75% polyester/20% rayon and 5% spandex ponte.  It is available in dark gray and navy.

      Uniform Pullover Box Pleat Jumper

      I also love the easy look of this Uniform Pullover Box Pleat Jumper. The pullover style has single box pleat at center lower bodice. Like the skater skirt, the fabric is the same blend of 75% polyester/20% rayon and 5% spandex ponte in dark gray an navy.

      For the boys, they also added quite a few casual pieces like sweatpants, fleece pants, pull-on cargo shorts, crew neck sweatshirts, and short and long sleeve basic tees in all the expected uniform colors earlier this year.

      Otherwise, not many changes in the boy's department.  I haven't noticed this Uniform Rain Jacket until now, so it might be new this season. It is basic enough to be a unisex rain jacket.

      Uniform Rain Jacket Features:

    • Made of 100% nylon twill

    • Lined in 100% polyester taffeta

    • Treated for water resistance

    • Snap button front over zipper closure

    • Front envelope pockets

      What's new at the Gap for Back to School 2015

      The folks at the Gap sent me a note to share what's new this season for Back to School.  The Uniform line is updated in quite a few ways:

      Gap Boys Logo Varsity Jacket Size XL - Red deliciousGap Girls Uniform Fit & Flare Jumper Size L - Beige
      • For girls, they have added more femininity:  Applying knowledge from the fashion collection successes, they are proud to offer more feminine details in the dresses and polos.

      • They updated the fits for clear differentiation and distinction between the fit offerings such as the girls classics, straight, or skinny fit chinos and the boys relaxed and straight fit chinos.

      • With colors, they changed navy standard to read as true navy rather than dark navy.  For boys, they added gray and black into the bottoms assortment for boys; and for girls, they added black into the bottoms assortment, and added pink into the knit offerings, changed gray standard in gym styles, added pattern to ponte pants.

      • They also changed up product details with the polo shirts.  The boys polo placket is cleaner and the silhouette is slightly slimmer and the new high low hem gives it a more fashionable look .  The girls polo placket is narrower and elongated, the body is slightly slimmer, has interior neck tape. 

      • They improved the feel of the fabric in the gym and sweaters.

      • They also have some new items such as fashion sweaters in girls, fit and flare dress in girls, fashion polo in girls in a new jersey fabrication, varsity jacket in both boys and girls.

        Best Bet for Girls Jumpers - Solids and Plaids

        For girls, jumpers are a year round wardrobe staple.  They can be worn in the warmer months with bare legs and ankle socks, with knee socks when the weather turns cooler, and with tights or leggings during the winter months. The key features to look for when shopping for a jumper are stain resistant and wrinkle resistant.

        The image below shows the regular retail price at each of the major retailers. Regular retail prices for the basic girls school uniform jumper range from $11 to $30. Based on my review, the target price is to find girls school uniform jumper for under $17. When you are watching the Back to School ads or out shopping, when you find a pair that at or below that target price range, make the purchase with confidence that you've found a good sale price.
