On December 3, 2014, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Lands’ End, Inc. (the “Company”) approved Executive Severance Agreements (each, an “Executive Severance Agreement”) with each of the following named executive officers of the Company (each an “Executive”): Edgar O.

Rosera, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer, Michele Donnan Martin, Executive Vice President, Chief Merchandising and Design Officer, and Kelly Ritchie, Senior Vice President for Employee and Customer Services.

Each Executive Severance Agreement provides, among other things, that if the Executive is involuntarily terminated by the Company for any reason other than for Cause or if the Executive voluntarily terminates his or her employment for Good Reason (each as defined in the applicable Executive Severance Agreement), the Executive will be eligible for (1) 12 months (24 months in the case of Mr. Huber) of salary continuation equal to his or her annual base salary rate, which will be subject to mitigation and reduction if the Executive becomes employed elsewhere (other than in the case of Mr. Rosera as to whom there will be no such reduction), (2) 12 months (24 months in the case of Mr. Huber) of health, dental and vision benefits and (3) 12 months of outplacement services, as well as a lump sum payment of accrued unused vacation pay benefits. Upon termination of employment, the Executive will also be required to fully waive any and all claims he or she may have in exchange for the specified severance benefits.

The Executive Severance Agreement contains certain provisions related to the Executive’s term of employment with the Company, including covenants related to devotion of time and attention to the Company and adherence to all of the Company’s policies, as well as additional customary covenants applicable to his or her term of employment with the Company and for specified periods of time thereafter with respect to confidentiality, non-disclosure of trade secrets, non- competition, non-solicitation and non-disparagement.

The foregoing description of the terms of each of the Executive Severance Agreements is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of each of the Executive Severance Agreements.
