I found this Kennebunk Shirt in the sale section.
I can always convince myself that I need a new Boat and Tote...
I desperately want a pair of Bean Boots but I am afraid they don't come in my size. I am a size 6 and Bean Boots are sized one size too big. I would need to order a size 5 (which L.L.Bean doesn’t make) or grow bigger feet...boo hoo for me.

While we are on the subject of Bean Boots…I was talking to one of JCW’s pals via email last month and he described a story where his bean boots may have been dissed!
And a quick side story, the guy who took the pictures actually called my bean boots "galoshes", as in a mocking "nice galoshes" comment when he picked us up in Boston. I started to mount a stunning defense of bean boots and trace through decades of preppy history that underlined their awesomeness, and then stopped mid sentence as I realized that he just was never going to get it...sad, really.
