Remember when L.L. Bean wasn’t cool? Yea, I do. I remember dragging my feet behind mom at Robinson’s May (throwback!)–annoyed with how painfully long it’d take her to pick out a cable knit sweater. And that very recognizable L.L. Bean hangtag, the brand name in Cheltenham script forever burned in my mind as “adult fashion to avoid.” Interesting how everything I dismissed as being farty and lame has come back to taunt me. Recent years, L.L. Bean’s Americana designs have tugged at my heart strings. Plaid button downs, army green anoraks, oversized wool sweaters–I love all of L.L. Bean’s greatest hits, and thus, my old fartiness has transpired. But I’m not the only one. People are showing love for L.L. Bean all over the internet–blogs, Ebay, online shops. I guess mom was ahead of the game, after all.
