The L.L. Bean Man


L.L. Bean Man
Once upon a time...a dear friend told my about "this guy" who she called the "L.L. Bean Man" because he never seemed to wear anything else but L.L. Bean attire. He was the good friend of her boyfriend at the time and she thought we might get along. We eventually met one snowy Super Bowl Sunday in Manhattan. That was over 30 years ago and today I am happily married to the L.L. Bean Man.

For those of you unfamiliar with L.L. Bean, it is an American retail company specializing in clothing and outdoor recreation equipment based in Freeport, Maine.  You can read all about it here.

If you live in New England chances are you will have at least one item from L.L. Bean. If you happen be be a member of our family you will have lost count of how many items in our house are from L.L. Bean. This is what happens when you marry the L.L. Bean Man.

Before you know become the L.L. Bean Woman.

Ok...yes, I will qualify this with a simple truth.
In winter, I love TARTAN as much as I love TAHILLA.
Put them together and we have a whole lotta love going on.

This has to be my favourite winter shirt ever. 
I am sure my kids have wondered on more than one occasion 
if I will ever wear anything else. 
This is a seriously comfy shirt...I just love it.

Can one carry the Tartan too far?
I think not!

I can not promise you will win style awards
in the following ensemble but you sure will
be comfy.

If you slip these pajamas on,
you may never want to part with them,
especially on Christmas morning.

I love the feel of this's incredibly soft
and generous in size.

Tartan aside...

Mr. H stocked up on the Extra-Large
Boat and Tote Bag.
It is the perfect size for everything...
travel, grocery shopping,
laundry, storage...
you name it, we use it.

It took six month in the making
and it was worth the wait for a pair of
Women's Bean Boot, 10" Shearling-Lined

We purchased two of these coats for the winter guests...
there is always a traveller from the Southern Hemisphere
who never fully appreciates a New England winter.
