1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Had the same feeling when I received mine. I think the color on the website is not true to life.

    Kopped and just received a pair of the Hawthorn Boots that are new this season. Overall, I'm impressed. At ~$200 they're pretty decent quality, Goodyear welted, etc. Made in El Salvador like a lot of Bean footwear. They fit TTS. Recommended!

    I wish they kept the the darker brown color from last years model too. Looks like a nice boot for sure. :)

    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.

    Is this an older LL Bean Signature label? It's too new to be vintage (+ MiChina), yet this isn't the current label (all caps sans serif logo).

    (Dang that's blurry.)

    Yes, that was their logo when they first launched it a couple years ago. Now, it's all an afterthought...

    It's funny because Signature is front and center (first thing you see when you walk in the door) at the store near me. It's not like Brooks where they tuck Red Fleece in the back corner.

    Anyway, I picked this guy up thrifting. Good replacement for a Lands End Canvas (RIP) pullover that I bought before I realized I'm actually size large, not medium.
