      Comments about Men's Essential Plain Down Gilet:

      Poor quality item. Outer-shell material feels cheap and horrible. Very disappointing. Would not expect it to be hard-wearing. Looks better in catalogue photo than in real-life. Definitely recommend you do not buy. Ordered 3 in different colours and am immediately returning them all.

                Comments about Men's Essential Plain Down Gilet:

                Good length but flimsy with a tight fit, and I am tall and slim. Landsend's US L/T is normally fine but with this gilet XL/T would have been better.

                Main criticism is total lack of internal pockets; nowhere even to stow a biro. This is a big surprise for a garment made in China and a disappointing case of extreme penny pinching.

                    Am size L by chest size but have had to buy XL clothes recently for good fit.The gilet in XL is slightly too large and L would probably have been ok.However still warm and wearable.Great on top of lined pullover for extra warmth and water resist.

                    • Q:

                      I bought three of the ladies gilets in different colours, but have so far not washed them.
                      However, I bought two men's ones for my husband and have just washed one of them according to the instructions on the label sewn into the garment. The down filling now seems to have congregated in lumps throughout, leaving the bulk of the gilet and collar devoid of any filling, which is very disappointing.
                      I am now extremely wary about washing the other gilets. Definitely not up to the usual Lands End quality and standard.

                        Thank you for your enquiry.

                        Please be advised that this garment can be machine washed and tumble dried on a low heat, we recommend using dryer or tennis balls once washed to plump the feathers back to the original state.
                        We would advise washing the down gilet that you are disappointed with and whilst drying (using tennis or dryer balls to agitate the feathers) to shake it at regular intervals.
                        You should find that it is back to its pre-washed condition. If you are still disappointed then do not hesitate to send them back for a full refund.

                      Exactly how long is the 'tall' large size? I am a very tall lady and usually buy the men's tall as the women's are never long enough for me. But it seems as if even the men's tall sizes are not really long enough.
