A New Line in the Making (Lands End and L.L. Bean)

Posted on: January 4, 2010

You might recall these two brands: L.L Bean and Lands End. However, what comes to mind when recalling these brands is somewhat boring! Known for their well-made New England style clothes and catalogs, they are also known for those not so stylish pleated khakis, fleeces, and turtle necks your parents have been wearing for over a decade,  which isn’t all that appealing to someone in their 20s, right?

Lands End, though, has recently launched their new line Canvas, mainly aimed at what I’d like to call the Inbetweeners. Definition of Inbetweeners:  they are left inbetween the fuzzy reality of the “real world” and “college life,” not wanting to dress like adults, but don’t want to look like teenagers anymore either. Canvas has reasonable prices for the quality of Lands End, yet has the ‘oh so chic’ style of laid back and sophisticated (a little J.Crewish without the high prices). L.L. Bean is planning to launch their new signature line for the Inbetweeners in March.

Although the lines are somewhat limited on selection, it might just be worth checking out! A little preppy, but comfy at the same time. Dressing like an adult might not be so bad after all! Let me know what you think of the new line!!
