A couple of days ago I presented the 2014 L. L. Bean fall/winter look. One of my favorite pieces of the brand was the Town and Field jacket. Which in my opinion is relatively affordable at $200. This jacket is a great alternative for the girls that want a Barbour which can be expensive or want that another option than the J. Crew boyfriend jacket. While the town and field jacket is fifty dollars more than the J. Crew boyfriend jacket. You're paying for better quality; British Millerain waxed cotton is one of the best waxed cotton fabrics. British Millerain® Co. Ltd. (Established in 1880 and family owned for six generations). I was really happy to see this jacket bought back from the archives. This specially updated style is lined with quilted flannel and features details that draw on tradition to keep you warm and dry, even in the harshest conditions: brass zipper with button-closure and patch pockets that conceal handwarmers behind, corduroy trim. Let me tell you, being an owner of waxed canvas and riding jackets corduroys trim always feels great around the hands and neck on cool chilly days. This jacket is perfect for those days when there's inclement weather wear them with a cap and pair of L.L.Bean to fully accomplish the trend preppy androgynous look in a woman. The jacket shouldn't only be worn during inclement weather, on sunny days throw some riding boots and channel your equestrian look! Best thing about this jacket is that it's stylish and functional! Remember fall is L.L. Bean so start shopping! Click here

Using the popular 60/40 formula in the parka, giving it a water-repellent shell. Ramar fabric was very popular because it is able to endure a lot of outdoor abuse.

The jacket has great features like 2-way zippers, down insulated pockets, waist drawcord which prevents from wind traveling in the body.

Last month I was invited to the release of the Victorinox Swiss Army I.N.O.X watch. I had a great time at the event, I bumped into a few old friends, which is always great. Honestly, before I went to the event, I read information about the watch and I was pretty impressed. The watch does things that very few watches can. I was impressed, but not to the point of me desiring a watch.

If you aren't familiar with Victorinox, the brand invented the Swiss Army Knife, which is a pocket knife with various tools like a bottle opener, scissors, tweezers, toothpick, corkscrew and nail file. All these tools come in handy in some awkward situation in your life whether you need to open a champagne bottle at a party or to cut a box. The Swiss Army Knife made a cultural impact, the name is usually mentioned when talking about reliability, longevity and being able to adapt in any situation. The knife was invented in 1891 because the Swiss Army needed a knife for their soldiers that can be used to open canned food and also disassembled a Swiss service rifle Schmidt-Rubin M1889 for cleaning. It became very popular after world war II as a lifesaver in numerous occasions.
It takes a lot of courage to name a watch after the legendary pocket knife. There's a reputation at risk. It's 130 years since the Swiss army knife has release and to celebrate Victorinox is releasing a watch to commemorate. To mark the occasion, Victorinox Swiss Army has I.N.O.X., a new watch that pays tribute to the history and industrial know-how of the brand by showcasing the values that have made it famous: authenticity, strength, quality, expertise and Swiss design.

Hi everyone, in June I had the privilege to get a glimpse of L.L. Bean fall/ winter collection. You would think I would have posted the pictures already, but no. I posted some pictures up on my instagram account and receive incredible response. However, most of the clothing wasn't available online. Another reason was I'm sure you readers would want to buy some of the clothes immediately so posting this collection at the beginning of summer would have been an absolute tease. Tantalizing would be the word. Well, it's time to put back the Madras, Seersucker, and Jack Rogers in Storage. I love the warm weather, but miss the cold weather because I can't wear my Norwegian sweaters and my 12 inch duck boots.
Let's begin talking about the collection with the shoe that made the business, the Bean Boot. This season the bean boot will be available in an assortment of colors like white, blue and red. Materials like Bison leather and wool from Woolrich will also be incorporated.
