    I was a little disappointed at its weight, from one of the reviews online I was expecting something more windbreaker-ish. This is a solid jacket (not a bad thing by any means, but I was hoping for something a little lighter for summer weather).

    Some of that stuff looks great, but the fit remains a nagging worry.

    Can someone who has the canvas jacket describe the back of the jacket? I'm wondering if it has the umbrella vent detail that g9's have.

    -black leather and loden ranger mocs


    That GIGANTIC shawl collar coat towards the end looks straight out of a vintage Sears Roebuck catalog. [​IMG]


    I couldn't find these loden ranger moccs. Which pic?

    These may be loden/dk gr blucher moccs, but I'd be down with highs. May just pick up the brown leather ones up currently.

    Also dig the plaid on the coat. I'm sure it's just a traditional pattern, but it seems Bemidji-ish.

    The back is smooth, no vent.

    Fall collection up. Striped lambswool cardigan is kind of cool looking, also digging the "deepest green" color they're using for the chamois shirt and canvas pants. Suede saddle shoe is a good look too. As for the accessories, those inverallan style watch caps are pretty awesome considering how difficult they were to find last fall, so are the ties but they're a little pricey for LL Bean imo.

    ^^^If you're looking for the watch caps, you can buy them at J Press. I see them on sale from time to time.

    New collection looks pretty boring, but that's kind of expected. Can anyone comment on how the new items fit though? Really like the duffle bag though... a great, cheaper alternative for a simple, clean duffle. LL Bean always makes durable bags.

    Thoughts on their raw denim?

    Thinking about coping these:

    http://www.llbean.com/llbeansignatur...0=Raw%20Indigo


    first thing that struck me was the skinny belt loops. they just look odd. If I had to guess on fit, based on LLB's history, these are gonna be too roomy.

    Well I'm looking for something similar to the APC Rescue.

    I'm just not sure about the quality...I might be better off buying a pair of 501 STF in raw/rigid for 1/2 the price.

    Anybody recommend LL Bean boots for the harsh, snowy, wet winters?


    I'm looking for a pair of winter boots (<$100), and it seems LL Bean is the bees' knees.

    Absolutely - I've got a pair of bean boots that have lasted through pretty much everything the northeast can throw at them. Go for the shearling-lined versions, though. That rubber toe cap can get pretty cold otherwise.

    Sorry guys. I don't post here much, but in spite of that I had planned on doing a pretty detailed write up- with photos- of the signature line because I live 20 minutes from the main store in Freeport.

    I don't know what prompted the company to make the decision but they don't even carry the line in the main store. I guess the only place you can walk in a store and find the signature line is in Virginia. This all seems pretty asinine to me given the relative "attraction" the main store has as a tourist stop for young and old. Maybe there is just a lot more that goes into keeping a line in store vs. just in a shipping destination. The new line must not ship out of Maine. In light of all the above I am a little angrier about the obviously looser "tailored" fit styling. It is already a specialized line so why branch out more?

    Items:

    What is everyone's opinion of these: http://www.llbean.com/llbeansignatur...tn&cat4=505905

    I kind of dig them as an alternative to my desert boots this fall. Seems like you can dress them up a bit or down with relative ease- not to mention there is a slight hint of "wtf are those" they are a bit fugly, which seems to draw me to shoes.

    http://www.llbean.com/llbeansignatur...tn&cat4=505934

    That is a pretty dope option to keep warm. I like the where the colored line placements are. A little steep on the price point, especially given if the line doesn't survive you aren't guaranteed a replacement if something goes array.

    http://www.llbean.com/llbeansignatur...tn&cat4=505930

    Fresh as hell. I'd wear the shit out of that in the fall and early winter up here. I think I just justified a buy. However, I do need a lighter jacket I can wear to grad school interviews around the country in the spring so my money might better be sent elsewhere.
