i'm sure that's not totally true, but i did do a double-take while flipping through the mail today. i guess that lands end has a newish collection called canvas, much like the signature line put out by l.l. bean that i mentioned a couple of weeks ago. i just received my canvas spring catalog in the mail, and before i knew it, i was totally sucked into the "hipper-than-before vortex" that all these classic companies have created. no matter if they're trying too hard, their nautical color palette, slimmer shapes and classic feel totally did it for me. and judging by my favorite rain boots in the world, i'm sure everything is good quality.
