LL Bean + Rogues Gallery = LL Bean Signature - Page 64

post #946 of 950

Bringing this thread back to life.

 

Is it just me, or is this S/S collection really boring and bad?  I'm usually a big fan of Signature and own quite a lot of it, but this season seems to have really fallen flat, imho.

I think it's been pretty boring since right after it's inception. I have quite a few items from a few years ago and have been pleased with the quality (if not always the cost:quality ratio) but they've failed at really putting out anything unique each season. To me, the main selling point remains that you can get some of the LL Bean staples in sizes that don't fit like tents like they do in the mainline. I wish they would expand it a bit more...

My wife on the other hand really likes their women's dresses, skirts, and sweaters and keeps ordering from them.

I've found a few pieces each season that seem to be pretty great.  I like a lot of their shirting in the fall, and like their Jackman olive suede bluchers that they released last year, but there's just *nothing* this season that's even remotely exciting.  It's LL Bean, so I don't expect it to be groundbreaking or life changing, but I do look to the signature collection to be a nice twist on classics, both in fit and in material.  Their current line just looks like mainline stuff this summer.

I kopped the Boatyard Jacket a few weeks ago and I REALLY like it. Great price, it'd be 2x that at J. Crew.

Hey all, nice seeing this thread here. I picked up the Jackman Ranger Mocs at the LL Bean outlet and love them.





As people have said here the latest Signature line stuff hasn't been quite the same once Alex Carleton left for Filson but there are some items that still work for me.
