I bought these last year and as I do not like unuseable pockets on tops I removed them to no detrment to the garment. This years garments are altogether a different kettle of fish. They are dyed after the garment has been made up. Not only that - the dye stains the skin so you are directed to wash the garment before hand. If Landsend wish to keep customers they will have to have a better standard of quality control for their items. So many customers have complained about sizing, design and quality of materials of items purchased, but Landsend are not listening - I for one will be looking elswhere to buy mine in future - after they are not cheap to buy outside of the sales.
