Great Items to Be Brought Back: L.L. Bean Natural/Navy Birdseye Sweater

I love this sweater. When both men and women see it, they want one for themselves.
  • The fabric content is soft because of the 80% cotton, and tough because of the 20% acrylic.
  • The boxy cut is perfect; neither fitted, nor oversized.
  • It features the ultimate timeless color combination - natural with navy. Women can feminize it by pairing it with a pretty polo shirt underneath. Men (and women) can tilt it towards the masculine side by wearing it over navy or white.
A fortunate few were able to procure this unique item several years back; the Birdseye Sweater (made by Alps in the US) was a store only item in Freeport. L.L.Bean would please the purists by not only offering this item for men as well as women, but also offering it in a wool blend as well. (L.L. Bean once offered a very similar wool version.)

This is what L.L. Bean should be doing more.

I just found your blog and it is just wonderful. I love your approach to dressing and style. I hope this is not too presumptuous, but it would be wonderful if you could write a post about work-appropriate preppy dressing. I am a college professor and I find that chinos are too casual for my workplace. Can you suggest some preppy stores and flattering styles for women in the workplace? Thanks for Your Help,
Molly
