    Ordered the brown blucher moc's in an 11.5, my friend said his rangers ran big. Will post pictures when they make their way to the great white north.

    They do run a little big. I went down .5 size from what I got in the ranger moc since I'll probably wear the suede mocs without socks most of the time.

    I think it's pretty good for what it is.

    If feels alot more honest and legitimate then J Crew, and just seems like they are doing what they have always done, but for a new generation.

    I think it's good.

    I'll probably pick up some ranger mocs and maybe a couple madras.

    My girl would love a few things from it, easily canvas and nubuck totes, with a couple knits as well.


    How are these ginghams any more "legit and honest" than J Crew? What does that mean? (I say this as a bigger fan of the Bean than Crew).

    I spoke to CS - they are going to get the pricing on the mocs changed. If there are any pricing issues just call your order in. In addition, use the coupon codes over the phone for free ship. All orders over $50 get a $10 gift card (mails separately) for a future purchase.

    I got the ranger mocs in navy and tan. Looking forward to it. May do nantucket red khakis later on and maybe a plaid or two, we'll see.

    I'm really digging these.

    It's as if Clark's and Bass had an illegitimate bastard child. No longer Desert Rapists, but New England Rapists.

    Agreed, the look great.

    When we get some additional info on sizing (e.g., sized as reg bean mocs and bucs), ill definitly get the prep rape´s and two pairs of ranger mocs.

    That's what I did, based on my friend's recommendation. I'll give you an update when they come if you want.

    Overall a lot more boring then I expected. There are a couple items like the canvas cloth pants in dark red I may buy, but I was hoping to be a little more excited with what they are offering.

    I can't think of a good reason why you wouldn't get both of those.

    SOme sort of java error on the thumbs.

    Looked through the collection. I'm underwhelmed. Looks derivative of all the other similar brands... plaids, flannels... mocs...

    AND AGAIN...NO TALL SIZES. J Crew can do this, why not Bean?


    +1

    It drives me insane that more companies don't make Tall sizes. If JCrew, Gap/BR and Polo can do it, why can't other companies?

    Just in case anyone was curious, I emailed LL Bean to get some measurements on their Trench in size small:

    1. Shoulders: 18 1/4"
    2. Pit to pit: 22 1/2"
    3. Sleeve (from the middle of the collar seam): 35 1/2"
    4. Length (collar seam to the bottom of the coat): 33"

    Shoe info: no wide sizes are planned. I´ll just get a D and expect stretching in the ranger mocs. Have reg blucher mocs in D which works just fine. Im surprised people are sizing down, from my experince, Bean shoes (except duck boots) are true to size.
