|In the L.L.Bean Catalog since 1925|
Looking at an old L.L. Bean Catalog before going to sleep. I came across to what's left of LL Bean 1941 Fall Catalog. The highlight has to be the Hudson's Bay Blankets. The Hudson Bay Point Blanket has been in the L.L. Bean catalog since 1925. This heritage striped wool blanket is practically windproof and water-repellent to keep you warm and dry. It will last a lifetime, according to Leon Leonwood Bean himself, who always kept one on hand (even in his car). Back in 1941 we were in the middle of a war, L.L. Bean was aware of a shortage since the wool came from England. L.L. Bean was carrying large quantities to protect its customers.
The blankets were soo good that the company would send you a sample. You can still get one from the website starting at $399.99. Coming across to the Hudson Bay Point Blankets will make any true L.L Bean enthusiast eyes light up, but the Ladies's Mallard Parka steals the show. This parka needs to return on the signature line which I think will be very popular. If I'm not mistaken I believe a similar outerwear piece came out in 2012 (100 year anniversary) involving a collaboration with Pendleton. I have a weakness for mallard embroidered sweaters and I'm not the only person as I know many people that feel the same. The parka is manufactured from the cozy Pendleton Mallard Blanket. If you scroll below you will see a great story! Any other pieces you like from the catalog?
