lands end, l.l. bean - same difference.





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.

I love that you post collections like this - it really is a valuable service. I would love to make style my first priority, but with my favorite bloggers, I may never need to. Totally buying the striped shirt!

we all want to be "hipper than before" and look like we didn't try too hard...no one wants to fade away in un-hip clothes...though, like Gilda, i base my entire wardrobe on what doesn't itch...these might fit that bill...

i absolutely never saw myself as an ll bean - lands end person. too preppy, too old fashioned, too east coast (huh?) but those look like shots of my closet! i live in those outfits!
