										EXHIBIT 99


DODGEVILLE, WIS. ... January 17, 2002 ... Lands' End, Inc. (LE), the
direct merchant of classically styled apparel and home furnishings,
today reported results for the nine-week holiday period ended December
28, 2001, compared with the eight-week holiday period ended December 22,
     Total revenue for the nine-week period was $462.6 million, up 8
percent from $427.1 million during the prior year's eight week holiday
season.  Net income for the nine-week period was $43.6 million, up 29
percent from $33.9 million earned in the eight-week holiday period in
calendar 2000.  Diluted earnings per share for the fiscal 2002 holiday
period were $1.45, compared with $1.13 last year.
     The additional week in this holiday period represented $13 million
in revenue and had no material impact on net income.  On a comparable 8-
week calendar, total revenue was up about 5 percent.
     Commenting on the holiday results, company president and chief
executive officer David F. Dyer said, "Our record holiday season has
extended the momentum of a sensational year.  Our collective
merchandising, creative and operational teams harnessed the great
potential inherent in our brand.  We provided our customers with great
service, quality products and creative presentations.  And our
customers, in turn, rewarded us with a highly successful holiday
     The solid sales improvement was fueled by successful inventory
management.  While the inventory investment was up from last year, the
company shipped 88 percent of its merchandise immediately upon customer
order, compared to 80 percent in last year's holiday period.
     Sales of full-price merchandise to U.S. consumers rose 8.5 percent,
while Internet sales increased 35 percent in the holiday period.  As a
percentage of total revenue, gross margin improvement of 2 percentage
points was the result of significantly better vendor sourcing and a
somewhat lower level of liquidations.  Overall selling, general and
administrative expenses were 6.3 percent higher.  However, as a
percentage of total revenue, SG&A expenses declined 0.6 percentage

	Year to date, total revenue for the forty-eight weeks was $1.44
billion, an increase of 6.3 percent from $1.35 billion during the
similar forty-seven week period in the prior year.  Net income, year to
date, was $64.7 million, or $2.16 per diluted share, compared with $36.8
million, or $1.20 per share, earned in the forty-seven weeks of the
prior year.

	The core business segment sales showed strong growth, with an 18
percent increase in women's and an 8 percent increase in the coed
division.  In the specialty segment, the home division was up 15
percent, Kids was up 5 percent, and Corporate Sales, the business
outfitters division, was about flat.  International sales were very
strong, up 18 percent from the prior year, led by the German and United
Kingdom businesses.

     Gross profit in the nine-week period just ended was $216.3 million,
or 46.8 percent of total revenue, compared with $191.4 million, or 44.8
percent of total revenue in the similar eight-week period a year ago.
The increase in gross profit margin was primarily due to continued
sourcing improvements with a somewhat lower level of liquidations.
Liquidations of excess inventory were 4 percent of total merchandise
sales in the holiday period just ended, compared with 5 percent a year
     At the end of the holiday period, inventory was $216 million, up
from $168 million a year ago. This increase was the result of
accelerating spring/summer receipts and investing in key continuing
styles to insure continued high initial fulfillment.  The company is
pleased with the quality of its inventory and has a lower level of
inventory to be liquidated on hand, compared with last year.

	In the nine-week period just ended, selling, general and
administrative expenses were $144.3 million, or 31.2 percent of total
revenue, compared with $135.7 million, or 31.8 percent of total revenue,
in last year's eight-week holiday period.  The improved leverage was
primarily due to better fulfillment levels that allowed us to convert
demand to sales at a higher rate.

     For the current fiscal year, the company estimates capital
expenditures at $42 million, and for fiscal 2003, they are currently
planned to be approximately $35 million.
     Given the first 11 months of this fiscal year and current
expectations for the month of January, the company believes that diluted
earnings per share will be in the range of $2.11 to $2.18 for fiscal
     Looking forward to our performance in fiscal 2003, the company
currently anticipates a single-digit percentage increase in total
revenue and a diluted earnings per share increase in the high-single-
digit to low-double-digit percentage range.  While we are extremely
pleased with our progress this year, overall economic conditions are
creating a degree of caution in our outlook for the upcoming first and
second quarters.

	Statements in this release that are not historical, including,
without limitation, statements regarding our plans, expectations,
assumptions, and estimations for fiscal 2002 and fiscal 2003 revenues,
gross profit margin, and earnings, as well as anticipated sales trends
and future development of our business strategy, are considered forward-
looking and speak only as of today's date. As such, these statements are
subject to a number of risks and uncertainties.  Future results may be
materially different from those expressed or implied by these statements
due to a number of factors. Currently, we believe that the principal
factors that create uncertainty about our future results are the
following: customer response to our merchandise offerings, circulation
changes and other initiatives; the mix of our sales between full price
and liquidation merchandise; overall consumer confidence and general
economic conditions, both domestic and foreign; effects of weather on
customer purchasing behavior; effects of shifting patterns of e-commerce
versus catalog purchases; costs associated with printing and mailing
catalogs and fulfilling orders; dependence on consumer seasonal buying
patterns; fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates; and changes
that may have different effects on the various sectors in which we
operate (e.g., rather than individual consumers, the Corporate Sales
Division, included in the specialty segment, sells to numerous
corporations, and certain of these sales are for their corporate
promotional activities).  Our future results could, of course, be
affected by other factors as well.  More information about these risks
and uncertainties may be found in the company's 10-K filings with the

forward-looking statements even if experience or future changes make it
clear that any projected results expressed or implied therein will not
be realized.
