School Uniforms from Lands’ End (Review and Giveaway)

by Kari Crum

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. If you are going to be shopping for school uniforms this year, I highly recommend you check out Lands’ End. Their school uniform items are available for purchase year-round and with their selection of colors, sizes, and styles, you’re sure to find just what you need.

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 shelly August 17, 2012 at 12:11 pm

It’s easier to pick out your clothes in the morning without having to think a lot about it.


3 Dolores I. Malcolmson August 17, 2012 at 1:34 pm

I would love some free uniforms:)


4 Jill Robson August 17, 2012 at 3:30 pm

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.


5 Jessica August 17, 2012 at 3:44 pm

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! :)


6 Helen August 17, 2012 at 3:51 pm

You always know what you’re going to wear to school!


7 Jenny August 17, 2012 at 5:17 pm

It saves time and is easier to pick out clothes every morning.


8 Tabathia B August 17, 2012 at 6:05 pm

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


9 Kelly D August 17, 2012 at 6:28 pm

I like that I don’t have to help them choose what to wear- they can help themselves.


10 Brooke R. August 17, 2012 at 6:56 pm

That they make friends with kiddos based on who they are and not what they wear.


11 Noreen August 17, 2012 at 9:34 pm

Knowing what to wear each day


12 BusyWorkingMama August 18, 2012 at 8:51 am

Easy to have age-appropriate clothing.


13 LaTanya August 18, 2012 at 11:36 am

You don’t have to buy school clothes.


14 Linda G. August 18, 2012 at 11:54 am

I like it because you don’t have to argue on what they are going to wear to school in the mornings


15 Ellie A. August 18, 2012 at 12:30 pm

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)


16 melissa n August 18, 2012 at 12:43 pm

my favorite thing is there is no social status for who can afford the name brands


17 Vickie Couturier August 18, 2012 at 12:50 pm

I believe uniforms are less pressure on kids


18 K.Pugh August 18, 2012 at 1:38 pm

It allows them to be equals at least on that level.
Thanks for the chance.


19 brandy August 18, 2012 at 4:23 pm

you don’t have to worry about picking out clothes in the morning.


20 Lawanna August 18, 2012 at 5:22 pm

I like the basic simple style of school uniforms


21 Stacey B August 18, 2012 at 11:53 pm

My fav thing is there is no arguing about what is being worn. It’s pick a color, and get dressed!


22 ANGEL JACKLYN August 19, 2012 at 1:07 am



23 april yedinak August 19, 2012 at 1:23 pm

you don’t have to waste time picking out outfits


24 adina August 19, 2012 at 5:08 pm

no decisions in the morning!


25 Maryann August 19, 2012 at 11:08 pm

We dont have to think abut what to wear each morning


26 Terra Heck August 20, 2012 at 5:12 am

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.


27 Linda Stewart August 20, 2012 at 8:23 am

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!


28 Jill August 20, 2012 at 9:11 am

I love not having to fit about what she wants to wear. It’s all taken care of.


29 sandra August 20, 2012 at 9:31 am

don’t need to have the morning what to wear fight


30 HappyMomC August 20, 2012 at 12:42 pm

easier to pick clothes in the morning. all students are dressed equally -there is no showing off clothes


31 Jammie August 20, 2012 at 3:01 pm

The fact all kids will be wearing the same so there will be no making fun of one another!


32 Staci A August 20, 2012 at 5:11 pm

No last minute clothing decisions.


33 Karen Gonyea August 20, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Less worry about peer pressure.


34 lana August 21, 2012 at 7:54 am

The kids not being made fun off everyone is wearing the same thing


35 dario August 21, 2012 at 4:13 pm

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


36 Angela Akinniyi August 22, 2012 at 12:12 pm

I don’t have to think twice about what they will wear for school.


37 Karry August 23, 2012 at 2:02 am

you dont have to think everyday, what are they going to wear.


38 Kimberly B. August 23, 2012 at 2:54 am

Favorite thing is that it saves so much time in the morning.


39 Megan August 23, 2012 at 5:16 pm

I love that all the kids look nice!


40 jacqueline August 23, 2012 at 10:59 pm

easy mornings are my favorite thing about them!


41 Susan Chester August 24, 2012 at 12:17 am

I love the collegiate look of uniforms.


42 Courtney August 24, 2012 at 10:57 am

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!


43 Leah Baird August 24, 2012 at 11:33 am

It makes kids focus on the learning, not who is wearing what.


44 Robert Pyszk August 24, 2012 at 1:02 pm

My favorite thing is no competition and it’s much faster and easy to dress them


45 Seyma Shabbir August 24, 2012 at 11:36 pm

No one comparing who is wearing name brands


46 Chelsea August 25, 2012 at 4:00 pm

I think it helps to eliminate bullying and my boost kids self esteem


47 Paige August 26, 2012 at 12:39 pm

I like the simplicity of it.


48 lynda T August 26, 2012 at 5:18 pm

Always know what we are going to wear!


49 Amie Olson August 26, 2012 at 10:48 pm

I love that you don’t have to worry about picking out school clothes each morning!


50 Valerie Taylor Mabrey August 27, 2012 at 9:56 am

I like they always look nice and there is no fighting over what they wear.


51 Anita Sears August 27, 2012 at 4:08 pm

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!


52 Tamar August 27, 2012 at 7:52 pm

not worrying about keeping up with styles.


53 Teresa Moore August 27, 2012 at 8:43 pm

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


54 Liz Ticona August 28, 2012 at 1:32 am

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!


55 Ana Oliva August 28, 2012 at 3:11 am

I like that there’ll be no peer pressure at school of who’s wearing or can afford the latest style. takes off lots of pressure from kids.


56 Mia Dentice Carey August 28, 2012 at 11:48 am

don’t have to worry about fighting with them in the morning for what top wear to school


57 Kristen M. August 28, 2012 at 2:20 pm

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


58 Annette D August 28, 2012 at 5:37 pm

It’s just easy.


59 Caitlin McClure August 28, 2012 at 5:46 pm

It’s easier to get ready


60 polly August 29, 2012 at 8:14 pm

not having to always have the expensive shoes, clothes etc.


61 Beth Willis August 29, 2012 at 11:40 pm

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.


62 kimbuckjr August 30, 2012 at 12:18 am

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.


63 kendra W August 30, 2012 at 1:52 am

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.


64 Emilee August 30, 2012 at 6:39 am

It makes field trips easier when you can spot all the matching kiddos


65 benita August 30, 2012 at 10:50 am

I think children wearinmg uniforms experience less peer pressure.



66 Cori Westphal August 30, 2012 at 10:51 am

The fact that there’s no fighting over what they wear!

67 Missy L August 30, 2012 at 12:43 pm

I would sure make choosing what to wear each morning super easy.


68 Jennifer Chiafalo August 30, 2012 at 6:53 pm

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.


69 gala August 30, 2012 at 7:52 pm

there is no room for showing off


70 melina r August 30, 2012 at 8:00 pm

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)


71 Saver Sara August 30, 2012 at 11:16 pm

easy to pick a daily outfit


72 Tanya White August 31, 2012 at 1:54 am

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


73 brenda Elsner August 31, 2012 at 6:39 am

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.


74 Lindsay August 31, 2012 at 8:10 am

Getting ready in the morning is SO much easier!


75 Sarah Y August 31, 2012 at 8:24 am

it’s quick and easy to find the day’s outfit – less stress


76 Jennifer Peaslee August 31, 2012 at 1:41 pm

no bullying about peoples outfits…everyone is the same in that respect


77 Re Morgan August 31, 2012 at 3:07 pm

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


78 Emilie August 31, 2012 at 8:13 pm

While it isn’t quite as much fun to pick out school clothes, it certainly makes the process more simple!


79 sarah August 31, 2012 at 8:25 pm

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.


80 Gianna August 31, 2012 at 9:31 pm

There’s no guesswork in what to wear.


81 Angela W August 31, 2012 at 10:50 pm

Knowing what you have to wear each day, less stress


82 ReggieMann August 31, 2012 at 11:54 pm

Choosing what to wear is a no brainer :)
