l.l. bean signature line

have any of you visited the l.l. bean store in freeport, maine? it's open 24 hours a day and you can find classic duck boots, backpacks, canvas boat bags, and flannel shirts that haven't changed much since the company started. some of my all time favorite things come from l.l. bean. they know classics. well, alex carleton the founder of rogues gallery in portland, maine has been assigned the task of designing a more fashion forward line. the goal is to attract a younger demographic. he and his designers have created about 200 pieces for both men and women. and everything is under $150. i can't wait to check this line out in march of 2010.
