Todd Snyder and L.L.Bean have teamed up on a very handsome collection of reimagined classics with a vintage-meets-modern edge. “After seeing these old photos of the founder, Leon Leonwood Bean, in his hunting gear, I was struck by his very authentic aesthetic,” Snyder says. “It was simultaneously dapper and down-to-earth. I really wanted to bring that to life.”
The collection, which was originally showcased in a runway show back in Feb. of this year, spans over 50 pieces, with limited edition designs ranging from puffer vests to Norwegian sweaters to yes, a new take on the L.L.Bean Boot. A fair amount of gear is also part of the collection, including pocket knives and elevated versions of classic board games. “As a Midwestern guy, I am inspired by Maine’s raw, natural beauty, from the mountains and forests to the lakes and rivers to the rocky Atlantic coastline,” Snyder says. “So this collection is all about suiting up for adventure – sartorial or otherwise.”
The collab is expected to move fast, so head right here to shop through the different pieces and find a thing or two for your kit.
