Man, I’ve got to stop balking on copping L.L. Bean Signature fits when they put out something that’s pure fire. Unlike a lot of my yuppie brethren, I don’t just gravitate towards menswear that makes you look like the supreme outdoorsman because it’s trendy. I’ll admit that I don’t really boat, fish, or hike that much, and I damn sure don’t hunt. But living in New England, dressing for a trudge through the marshlands (no matter what season) is sometimes the most practical thing you can do. When L.L. Bean Signature debuted the Wax Canvas Bean Boot, I kept saying I would pull the trigger but I didn’t. These, however, will not be the same case.
Spotted on Dreams of Perfection, these are a 6 inch version of the waxed joints they dropped upon the luxury line’s launch. Definitely a better choice when the weather is hot and wet. $119 isn’t a bad price, considering how many years you’ll probably get out of them. You can pick them up (with free shipping on every order) here.
