It seems like a no-brainer; two classic American heritage brands working together to create a handsome collaboration. Fashion designer Todd Snyder and iconic outdoors outfitter L.L.Bean have made this year that much better by dropping capsule collections throughout the year, and now they’ve just released the “Heritage Plaid Collection.”
When Todd Snyder was going through L.L.Bean’s archives, he came across the brand’s first Main Hunting Coat; the photo of the 1937 jacket inspired this latest collaboration. The L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder Heritage Plaid Collection has breathed new life into classic styles.
This limited collection is all made with the same striking Buffalo check plaid. And these fashionably functional items will brighten up your home and winter wardrobe. Snyder’s favorite pieces from the L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder Heritage Plaid Collection include the Maine Hunting Coat, baseball cap, blanket set with carrier, and the favorite winter footwear of every northerner (or northerner by proxy), the iconic Bean Boot.
You can find select pieces of the L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder collection at L.L.Bean, and the entire collection is showcased on the Todd Snyder website. Sizes range from XS to XXL but are sure to go fast. Grab something from the collection now for a holiday gift. Due to supply chain issues, some items will be sent out on December 15.
L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder Maine Hunting Coat in Heritage Plaid
This jacket is the nucleus of the collection, as the original 1937 coat inspired it all. This updated version is made with Pendleton wool and comes fully lined. This car coat length jacket hits mid-thigh and has four front pockets that snap close and easily adjustable cuffs. Try it with a turtleneck sweater and a solid-colored scarf.
L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder Blanket and Carrier in Heritage Plaid
Maybe your grandpa or your parents had a stadium blanket that seemed to follow them everywhere, from outdoor sports viewing to picnics to the couch. This Pendleton wool buffalo check plaid blanket can do that and more. You can toss it over a sofa or chair to add a rustic decorative touch to your living room or keep it in your car for emergencies. Because it has a handsome embossed leather carrier, it’s easy to tote to football games. When you’re seated, roll it out and wrap it around you while you root for your team.
L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder Heritage Plaid Sweater
This shawl-collared Pendleton wool sweater is a great layering piece cut on the slim side. Try it with a puffy vest on mild days, or opt to wear it over a tee or a cotton turtleneck top.
L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder Heritage Baseball Hat
This classic baseball hat crafted by Ebbets Field Flannels is one size fits all. Like all the other items in the collection, it’s made from Pendleton wool and will keep your head warm, dry and dapper.
L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder Heritage Wool Plaid Tote
There’s a much more fashionable way to schelp your stuff, and this handsome L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder tote bag is it. Using the collection’s Buffalo check plaid, the generously sized tote is trimmed and lined in 100% cotton. The bottom and the seams are reinforced, so this bag can withstand you shoving a lot of things in it.
L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder Heritage Bean Boots
Whether you got your first pair of “Bean Boots” as a toddler or as a post-grad at the Ivy League, these iconic bad weather boots will keep you upright even in a blizzard. The plaid wool upper is water-resistant, and it’s trimmed in soft black leather. This lace-up boot uses the exact rubber chain tread bottom that has protected people since 1912.
