  • 8/3/2019 L.L Bean 100th Anniversary Products



    Within this press kit, you will find information on some very special products that we have

    developed in celebration of our 100th Anniversary. These products, many heritage-based in

    their inspiration, give a respectful nod to a company history thats deeply rooted and steeped

    in the outdoors. These items pay homage to our commitment, both then and now, to the outdoor

    lifestyle that not only spawned the company, but has helped shape it throughout the years.

    Its been an amazing journey during the last 100 years and we are proud to have developed a

    reputation for being one of Americas most beloved brands, well-known for stellar products and

    a customer service ethos that has become the benchmark of the retail industr y. While we are indeed

    celebrating our 100th Anniversary, we are not doing so by looking back, but rather facing the

    direction we always haveforward. And we look forward to another 100 years of ongoing

    product innovation, expertise and sharing our passion for the outdoors with future generations.

    If you have any questions about these products or would like high-resolution imagery,

    please do not hesitate to contact me.
