OBG the champion

This LL Bean Mariner is probably my third. Bu5 vn so it is an oldie. I wear it all the time in so many ways there was no possibility of styling it in a completely new way. So casualized suit and sneakers it is.

I also duplicated in a different colour and wear both versions heavily.

    Yes a striped mariner is signature to your style. Definitely an essential. Love this look.

  • Joy replied 1 year ago

    More love. I need to try the LLBean shirt. I have too many almost ok but not perfect versions, but my favorite is a Lands End rash guard version

  • JAileen replied 1 year ago

    I love these on you.  I have a couple, but from Lands End,  I think I’ve worn it with “our” scarf, too.  Your plaid suit is awesome.

    You are my "stripe hero", Suz!! You always make them feel extra good (and I already love them to begin with;-)

    looks great! I have several of the LL bean mariner. The thicker fabric is great for cooler days--and then I wear them to sleep sometimes when Im feeling chilly! Great quality.
