Re: The ranger moccs, I'm this close to buying a pair myself. Wish they had offered more leather options for fall.

Ok cool...just talked to a rep with their online chat like an hour ago and she told me there were no plans and the company reevaluate in the spring. Clearly someone didn't have their shit together. You are still a month away from any update from me on fits of shirts and jackets. I second you with the leather options on the mocs. I do think that color will age beautifully, which basically means when the company sends a coupon I am buying. Hopefully that happens this month.

Can anyone comment on the Featherweight Hunting Jacket (http://www.llbean.com/llbeansignatur...Value_0=Navy)?

I'm curious about fit, quality of construction, cloth, and general impressions.

I have those leather ranger mocs and i've had them since early march when they did an early pre-shipment of 100 pairs. They've broken in pretty nicely and the leather almost gets a reddish hue where it creases and stretches out. Size down a bit though as they fit a little big imo.

i just ordered a pair of these... the price is right and its surprisingly hard hard to find simple boots. they look like less clunky/chunky redwing irish setters/moc GT. http://www.llbean.com/llbeansignatur...tn&cat4=505905 i'll try to do fit sizing and pics when they arrive on wed/thurs...

I just got the catalog in the mail. Quite a few impressive things in there. Sadly, since its almost all winter wear, its useless to me.

I bought one and returned it. Why?

1) The material is extremely heavy. A lot heavier than it appears.

2) Its not a slim cut. Definitely a wide cut. As you see in the photos, the guy is wearing a BD and a bulky sweater underneath.

3) I was looking more for a fall shirt jacket and the weight+cut really wasnt going to replace my current utility jacket and/or barbour coat.

Just picked these up a few weeks ago. I was sold on the black leather uppers...

Im really impressed by alot of the new offerings, such as the field coat, bush pants, saddle shoes and work boots even though ive yet to see anything irl. Esp the field looks great, and given the Millerain fabric, could be very useful aswell. Got to applaud the "from the archive" initiative!

I just got a pair today, size 7.5. The sizing seems right.

They're not a match for the construction of boots I got from them back in the early 90s, but they seem decent enough.

ok the LL bean work boot arrived today.

here's the initial impressions:

Pros:
  • very soft leather, little breaking in needed
  • very sleek compared to red wing original irish setters
  • 8 inches high
  • very very low profile treads on sole not boot like at all in feeling more like broken in boat shoes.
  • low profile sole- boat shoe like which i like

Cons:
  1. leather tounge is free and doesn't have insulation against water/snow above 4 inches
  2. sole looks like tread will wear quickly
  3. not as beefy compared to redwings

as to fit: i ordered a 9.5 D (it only comes in medium width) which fit well with wool hiking socks.
i am a 10 Nike/adidas running shoes
9 RW boots
9.5 jack purcells

i took a ton of pics and some comparisons with the red wing rugged classic. honestly i these will be Not be enough for heavy rain and slushy conditions. i'll still need a gortex insulated waterproof boot for those days.

but they are very very comfortable to walk in, almost broken in boat shoe like right off the bat.

There's a review of the boots on the blog A Trip Down South that also has some things to say

The stitching on both those boots is pretty intense. I like that middle fit pic about halfway down
