L.L. Bean Signature Cotton Fisherman Sweater

L.L. Bean reminds me of long-ago evenings when my sisters and I would huddle around a catalog, flagging pages and circling selections, while Mom used the telephone [yes, before online shopping] to call-in an order. The retailer was often our source for winter coats and other outdoor rec wear.

Though we all may have moved on from the traditional hunting and fishing aesthetic, certain pieces from the Bean product line are rustically appealing in a surprisingly metropolitan way.

L.L. Bean Signature, a sub-brand of the Maine-based company launched in 2010, features a modern fit and refreshed details on its heritage merchandise.  The collection’s Cotton Fisherman Sweater is a great catch – and getting lots of bites from the press.

The cozy cable-knit is constructed according to the authentic design of the 1990s original, but updated with a shrunken, feminine fit. Beyond the silhouette and fabrication, the unrivaled beauty of this modest beige pullover is it goes with everything: wear over a chambray button-up or simple white tee, with leather leggings or floral mini. Effortlessly easy.

Looks like it’s time to cast your net back into Bean!
