Style Share return - L.L. Bean shirt

Whoot! My little experiment in crowd-sourcing style is showing some returns. For the second time this week, a Style Share item that was sent out into the world has now been documented in the wild.

This time out, it was this vintage L.L. Bean chamois shirt from December.

The shirt was snapped up by The Natural Aristocrat and he worked it into not one, but two different outfits.

Both outfits show the true versatility of the shirt, with the second turning in a true mix of styles that really make the bright red shirt (which could be considered fairly utilitarian considering the humble origins) into a focal point.

If you click through the photo-credit link, TNA even included a bit of nostalgic memories about L.L. Bean and some history of the shirt. Good stuff.

Thanks again to everyone who has participated in the project so far, and here's to many more great returns.


  1. Thanks again for the shirt and the kind words! Also, to let you know, the photo on the left made it onto a Maine style blog, and the photo on the right made it onto the LL Bean PR blog!

  2. No problem on the shirt. That's what the project is all about.

    That's very cool about the blog mentions! If you don't mind, could you share the links to them? I'd definitely be interested in checking them out.

  3. he really put together 2 cool outfits!!
