L.L. Bean is my favorite clothing store. I am not particularly wrapped up in fashion, as anyone who has ever met me will attest to. I just like the way their clothes fit, and like the flannel lined jeans in the winter. If I order something online in XL Tall, I know what I’m getting will fit me well. Other men’s clothing vendors are becoming like women’s clothing, where shit in the same size from two different vendors doesn’t fit the same way. That’s why I’m happy to see that the Bean family is getting their Wookie Suit on:
He even landed the covetedÂ L.L. BeanÂ endorsement â€“ that’s Linda LorraineÂ Bean, heiress of the L.L. Bean empire and a lobster roll entrepreneur in her own right. She endorsed Paul on Saturday from her restaurant in the retail outlet mecca ofÂ Freeport.
Asked why she wasnâ€™t supporting fellow New Englander Mitt Romney, Ms. Bean said â€œIâ€™ve always been for Ron Paulâ€,Â according to a statementÂ posted on Paulâ€™s campaign web site.
I’m not enough of a Wookie Suiter to support Paul, largely for the same reasons Megan McArdle doesn’t like him, but it’s good knowing I’m not forking over my hard earned clothing dollars to dirty hippies.
