The strategic reinvention of Lands’ End -- including the success of its partnership with American Airlines and closing the book on its marriage to Sears -- is paying off.

Company execs are bullish on its prospects with Kohl’s, a retailer with far more impact on Middle America’s fashion choices than the still-not-totally dead Sears.
