At L.L.Bean, they design products that make it easier for
families of all kinds to spend time outside together.

that make it easier to take longer walks, have deeper talks

When discussing L.L. Bean we certainly can't forget to talk about the
boots. Just as when Leon Leonwood Bean created them in 1912, the L.L
Bean duck boots combine the waterproof protection of rubber-bottom boots
with the supple comfort of full-grain leather. Whoever says “they
don’t build things like they used to," doesn't own these boots. Today,
their signature “duck" boots are still sewn right here in Maine – one pair
at a time – by expert craftspeople whose technical skills and passion for
their work is evident in every pair of boots they make. Warm, dry feet
haven’t gone out of style in a hundred years, so we haven’t needed to
change L.L.’s innovative 1912 design.
Obviously they have many other footwear styles as well.

Coat, it was an instant favorite with hunters. In 1934, the
Zipper Duffle debuts. Featuring a breakthrough device called the “hookless
fastener" (aka “zipper"), the duffle became an L.L.Bean mainstay. In
1951, 1951 Ladies’ Department opens. The women’s showroom opened after
L.L.’s daughter-in-law, Hazel, and wife, Claire, convinced L.L. that women
needed something to do while their husbands shopped for fishing tackle.

heavyweight sweaters “used by Norwegian fishermen who require unusual
durability and warmth," the sweaters developed an instant following.
