    L.L. Bean Summer 2012 cover



    Got my catalog in the mail today and even before I knew it was a recreation, I went to check out and see which image they were doing

    They have a nice little write up of it on their blog, too.
    Here is info on their January one.

    Yep, I saw the catalog and thought it might be a recreation. It had that classic vibe.
    Workwear is the new Black.

    Looks like one of those "How many differences can you find between these 2 pictures?" things. Wondered why they reversed the colors on the child's clothes.

    I have it here, too, and also got the vintage vibe. I didn't know it was deliberate recreation, though. Very cool.

    How about the top button being undone on the (new) female's shirt?...Had to "add" that, didn't they? And notice how the original man's trousers are higher waisted? Too bad they couldn't recreate that...

    They got the basin on the stump, but couldn't find plain brown oxfords for the kid. Hmm . . . brown oxford shoes for little kids, that goes into the "Vintage things that have disappeared in your life time" thread.
