    Looking to get a pair of the leather mocs. What do you guys think will be more versatile as casual wear, the bluchers or rangers?

    I too would appreciate some forum opinions on this question...anyone?

    just got in the cord short, saltwash pullover in rosewood (love the button cuff), and the navy ranger moc. all are solid pieces.

    How's the fit on the pullover?

    All the comments here had me worried about the fit of the Signature line. From my quick comparison of the chambray work shirt to a J Crew flannel shirt, the fit is pretty much the same for size small. The LL Bean shoulders are a tiny bit wider, but the rest of the shirt seems the same size. Normal Bean shirts are gigantic, with a small being at least the same size as J Crew's medium. I can at least wear this, although it's still not slim.

    But the shirt is still going back. I tried the deep loden color, thinking a green chambray could be interesting, but the color looks really bad on me.

    At least it confirms that when the fall line comes out, I can get some Bean flannels, I'm not just relying on J Crew anymore. But I'll also be checking Land's End Canvas, they fit me better than J Crew or LL Bean Signature.

    For me, the fit in the body is good. They fit better than the classic fit Lacoste IMO but not super slim by any means.

    However, I have an athletic build (I'm 6'1", 195lbs) so for most of those on SF who resemble a stick figure, the same fit might not work as well.

    As for the placket, I think it sits fine. I only button the bottom one so more of the chambray shows. I think it contrasts well with the red fade color and the navy blue collar.

    What size did you order?
    I'm just slightly bigger/taller and wanna give these a shot.

    I got a large. It had ever so slightly more room in the body than I wanted, but a warm wash tightened it up just fine. I think a large should be perfect on you, just wash it on cold and hang dry.

    Anyone pick up or tried on the Plain Weave blazer/pants? Just wondering if it would work as a decent khaki cotton summer suit.

    Some new arrivals. All in all, I really like the women's line and really dislike the men's line.

    Please do. I really like the look, but I have my doubts about the quality. It'd be nice to be surprised by the quality of an item for a change.

    You have doubts about the quality of an LL Bean Item? Where are you from.

    Got the mocs in "darkest navy"

    Trying to decide whether or not I want to keep them - my concern is they kinda look to much like the blue in my naked and famous weird guys which I wear a lot. They looked great with some chinos/grey denim - but not sure.

    They are comfortable and very soft - seem to be of good quality.

    I bought the pants in 34/36. At 6'5" 212 with thighs and butt that are a little too muscular for most "designer"pants, these are still loose. The rise is higher than the current norm, but not obscenely so. If I had paid more for these pants, I'd have the legs slimmed. The opening is pretty big.
