The interest is sort of a side-discussion while people are waiting for their Alex Carlton collab. But regardless, you're embarrassed because people in the forum obsessed with heritage looks are discussing a company that has been around and making the same kind of stuff since 1912? Ridiculous. Does it embarrass you that people buy Levi's STF at Sears for $40? Is that too Plebian for your big-timer status? Edit: Dude, you are selling pre-faded Levi's on your B&S thread.

I stand corrected on the price of the Signature series boots. $129 is a reasonable price for some cool boots. I still like the buffalo hide better, but we'll see how they look in person. Thankfully LL Bean has a great returns policy.

Good follow up, that dude is a fucking clown. He strikes as the type of nigga to hop on the dick of a Junya x LL Bean collab but run his mouth off on some nonsense like this.

LL bean is awesome if you actually do things outdoors; also work well in a city or rainy climate. I am definitely getting a pair of those bean boots for my next shoe buy. They will be awesome for the shooting range, rainy days in the city and other outdoor occasions.

I'll admit I sometimes wear Levi's while working on my car or doing yard work. But I would not wear them anywhere in public outside of a dirty outdoor activity since (like Bean) they have a cheap look to them. However you don't see me starting threads about Levi or advocating them here.

Here's a pic from Bean's Alex Carlton collection photo shoot. The women's collection is dreadful-- basically JC Penney level bad.

Try visualizing the above picture with Alex removed and the LL Bean logo replaced with a giant JC Penney backdrop. I have absolutely no trouble visualizing that and would fully believe it was actually JCP if I saw it presented like that. Not good.

I just bought my sixth pair of LL bean shoes/boots. Approved.

I'll admit that the women's stuff looks alright, but who cares...the men's line looks promising and that's all I care about.

I tried on a small trim fit madras shirt the other day; I liked it, but tucked-in it still bunched a bit in back. Your mileage may vary, but it fit me better than a J Crew small (which is too short on my shoulders) and seemed like it was decently made.

It is ironic that his username is BB1. You'd think he'd appreciate trad things more.

Uh, LL Bean may "look cheap" to you, but in many contexts the message is actually "I'm fucking loaded." A pair of cheap LL Bean shorts or polo shirt, faded by sun and salt after multiple summers on the Sound, can be a more effective means of conveying wealth and status than even the most shrunken of Thom Browne suits.

I'm aware that many affluent baby boomers dress this way, but lolwut
