Stephen King makes fun of LL Bean in his JFK novel I am reading at the moment. Since the seventies I have liked LL Bean clothes. There is the right amount of sport joined with old feel country to suit my low key style.
Plenty of color, a well made cut with rugged stitching ensures a garment will last awhile. My daughter took a plaid wool barn coat from my closet three decades ago and still wears it. When I see it worn I still recall how I liked wearing it on our early camping trips. It is just too small for me now. The shoulder-sleeve bind crept in.
I have a collection of tees that are a good investment for the money.
