School Uniforms from Lands’ End (Review and Giveaway)

I can hardly believe it’s already that time of year again, but, my kids started back to school last week. Our youngest reached a milestone of sorts – he’s officially a middle-schooler!

Where we live, starting middle school means taking on a little more responsibility and becoming more independent. It also means wearing uniforms to school. The elementary and high school students do not wear uniforms, but it is a policy that’s in place at our middle school. The kids don’t seem to mind and I have to say, it certainly makes getting ready in the mornings quick and easy.

When it comes to school uniforms for my kids, I look for two things. First, they must be comfortable. This is a must since they will be worn every single school day. I want my child to be relaxed and at ease at school. Nice comfy clothing is key to helping make his day go well. Second, the uniforms must be of high quality and durability. Because the uniform items will be worn so frequently, that also means they will be laundered frequently. They need to hold up well and look good wash after wash.

Lands’ End is a great source for school uniforms for kids. They offer a variety of styles and colors and a guarantee that allows you to return any item at any time if you are not satisfied.

We were able to try out a Lands’ End top and bottom for my son. Our uniform policy allows khaki or black pants and polo shirts in any shade of blue or white. So, we tested out the Lands’ End Plain Front pants in khaki and the Short Sleeve Solid Performance Interlock Polo shirt in navy.

Lands' End Review

I’m impressed with the quality of the clothing and my son told me that they are very comfortable to wear. He looked so handsome and grown up!

Some of the features of the Lands’ End uniforms that I really like:

  • the pants are reinforced with Iron Knees for extra durability – just what boys need!
  • the pants are made of 100% cotton fabric that is stain and wrinkle resistant
  • adjustable tabs inside the pants allow for better fit
  • polo shirt fabric is super soft
  • polo shirt will not shrink, pill or fade and holds up wash after wash

Lands’ End has always been a brand I trust and so it’s no surprise that they make great, quality school uniforms for kids.

    I love that I can be done with clothes shopping! It makes back to school so much easier when all I need to be sure of is that I have blue/white shirts and navy/khaki bottoms.

  2. says

    My son doesn’t have to wear a uniform, but i did growing up in England. I wish they would have it manditory in Canada, it really takes the guess work out of dressing for school.

  3. Jessica says

    Yay for this giveaway! My son needs uniforms for school and some quality clothes would be great for my rough and tumble 7 year old! :)

  4. Tabathia B says

    That you really don’t have to worry about affording the newest pair of expensive jeans because everyone must wear the same uniform and that everyone looks nice and neat

  5. says

    For me it’s the most AWESOME thing as we know what we need no need to worry about anyone competing to see who has the better what everyone has the same plus the BONUS this mama loves to take a pic of her boys wearing the same thing (shhh they just look so cute although my 13 & 9 so totally disagree)

  6. ANGEL JACKLYN says

    IT PREVENTS THEM FROM BEING TEASED ABOUT WHAT THEY’RE WEARING BECAUSE THEY’RE ALL WEARING THE SAME THING. AT THE SAME TIME, THEY CANNOT EXPRESS THEIR CREATIVITY. SO I DON’T KNOW HOW I’D FEEL UNLESS I WAS CONFRONTED WITH IT DIRECTLY.

  7. says

    My fave thing is that the kids don’t feel pressured to wear the most up-to-date fashions since they’re all wearing uniforms. Thanks.

    My favorite thing about uniforms is not having to decide what Lil Man is going to wear everyday. The uniform makes that decision for me and I don’t have to worry about him wearing something that someone else would make fun of or make harsh comments about because they are all wearing the very same thing!

  9. dario says

    It takes away from some of the bullying and harassing kids can get for what they wear or don’t wear my high school was like a fashion runway you had to wear labels or you were nothing

  10. says

    I would love for my kids to wear uniforms to school. I think it equalizes kids learning opportunites by taking clothing based popularity out of the equation. It also doesnt hurt that it saves mama and daddy some money!

  11. Anita Sears says

    My kids don’t get caught up in being shallow, worrying about what the latest thing to wear is. They just go to school and learn!

  12. Teresa Moore says

    I love uniforms because there is no real battle over what my daughter would want to wear and if it matched.

  13. says

    I love that there’ll be no thinking about what they’ll be wearing or worrying that they won’t like the outfit i’d choose for them. uniforms are easy peazy for moms and kids! love them!

  14. Kristen M. says

    I like that uniforms put everyone on the same playing field – there’s no division of fashion have and have nots.

  15. Beth Willis says

    I love that my kids aren’t always begging for new pricey shoes or clothes because it’s what’s “in” because everyone’s wearing the same thing. Plus it makes getting dressed in the morning pretty easy.

    I love that my daughter wears a uniform to school because it takes all the guess work out of our morning routine on what to wear to school for that day.

    I love the fact that the other kids don’t make fun of kids who are less fortunate and can’t have the nicer clothing.

  18. Jennifer Chiafalo says

    As someone who spent time in a private school as well as a public school, I have to say there is an equalizing quality that uniforms have. Kids are better able to concentrate on admiring the inside of each other when you take away the distractions of fashion.

  19. melina r says

    like uniforms because they go on sale during BTS sales, and low maintenance (don’t have to worry to much about matching the shirt to the pants)

  20. Tanya White says

    my favorite thing about my children wearing uniforms to school is that everyone has to wear the same thing so no style issues with other children at school

  21. brenda Elsner says

    So much easier to pick out clothes in the morning. With everyone in the school having to wear a uniform, others can’t judge you on the types of clothes that you wear.

  22. Re Morgan says

    they arent concerned with fashion statements since they all basically look alike, and it saves us money on clothes.

  23. sarah says

    I like that there are no fashion wars and kids can focus on their school work rather than who is wearing the latest fad and who is not.
