Found the sizing to be pretty on target. Compared to J Crew's urban slim fit I think they're a little tighter in the thigh.

yo, I work at Portland Dry Goods / Live around here.

Rogues Gallery's flagship actually just cleared out of their space like 2 weeks back. Rabelais is gone too.

obviously im biased but visiting for PDG / Barbour / David Wood would totally be worth a trip. theres also super good consignment / vintage shops around the area, which I could give you the lowdown on through PM or on here. LL Bean's flagship is only like 20 minutes north of portland too.

as far as food goes, you really cant go wrong up here. Definately go to Bard for coffee. I'd say Duckfat for lunch.

I Think RG in Provincetown is still around but that could be a bit of a journey. I like LLBS but I feel like rogues was just starting to get really good around Fall '10. Shame that we haven't seen much from the brand as of recent.

curse these lousy catalog photos. i was expecting the navy/red matinicus crewneck to have saturated colors, but it turns out they're really dull.

anybody want it before i put it in the mail? size small.

Apparently that's a problem with some of their stuff. Read similar reviews about the Maine Guide Shirt - colors in photos are rich and saturated and contrasty, in real life washed out.  Either they're playing games in photoshop or they have a real QC issue.

I stopped by rogues gallery last year and found them closed on Wednesdays. Evidently that doesn't matter anymore.

PDG is a super cool store! I get up to Portland every couple of months for business and try to stop by when I can. I haven't been there in a while. I should stop by soon.

hey man thanks for all the info, definitely would like to know more about the vintage/thrift spots if possible --- and man I was looking forward to checking out Rogues too but looks like Portland has enough to offer besides that .... I actually work over at Bodega in Boston, my trip to up toward your area has been long overdue....

I feel like signature's sweaters always come out kinda subdued. often more than expected; that bear isle (see what i did there?) from winter looked AWFUL on the website, but at the store it's much better.

I usually like their shirting best of a collection. tails are a bit short, but thats perfect for a casual day kit.

All of their pictures have the contrast turned up so keep that in mind when purchasing.

Does anyone else think LL Bean customer service is absolutely amazing? Received a defective shirt today so I emailed them about it and got a call from customer service within half an hour. Shirt was removed from website and out of stock yet they found me an exchange and are having it shipped out today. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I have had nothing but awesomely positive experiences with LL Bean's customer service. That includes in person at the few of their stores I've been to, through their online chat, and over the telephone. Their customer service is one of the main reasons I like shopping through them.

LL Bean customer service is second to none. Couple months ago my 3 year old pair of Gore-tex upland boots started to leak. Seems the liner was separating from the seams somewhere, and water was coming in from around where the sole was stitched to the boot. I asked them if they could repair the boots. They said they could not (thank you very much, outsourcing to china) but gave me a complete refund for them. This was not an article that was worn once and returned, or returned because of wrong size. These boots had seen mud, dirt, snow, ice, rain and even walked through the Hudson river when Irene cause some mild flooding in my neighborhood last summer. That's not to mention the rigors of general 3-season wear. And they still gave me every penny back for them. When they say 100% satisfaction guarantee, they mean it. That's one reason I'll always go back to them.

There are a bunch of "new" sale items from the signature line on the sale section of the main llbean website.

 

I say "new" relatively, since sweaters like the goose sweater are back! That thing sold out so quickly when it was introduced (I think FA10? Or maybe 11) but a lot of stuff is back.

 

I'm eyeing the chamois shirt in royal blue. :D
