Freeport — Now that LL Bean is finally able to keep up with production of the winter’s hottest boots, the company is looking to strike gold again with its latest, super-long front lady’s jeans.
“With a front 45% longer than our current longest-front jeans, these are sure to impress whether you’re running errands, sitting in front of a crackling fire, or hanging out with friends,” the company announced in a press release.
The jeans are inspired by founder Leon Leonwood Bean’s own attempts to lengthen the front of women’s jeans during Prohibition. Sadly, Bean was never able to fully lengthen them due to constraints in the jean lengthening technology of the day.
“With modern methods, we’re able to make our founder’s dream a reality,” the company said, adding “it’s the LL Bean way to find modern ways to bring back classic ideas.”
“Fans of our already long-fronted jeans are sure to enjoy the sound of the extra long zipper as it slowly opens and closes.”
The zipper is a modified version of the zipper used on Bean’s famous “blanket jackets,” a warm, long jacket that makes people look like shapeless duvet covers as they move about the state during the cold and dreary winter.
The pants join other new items including the Just Too Short Winter Coat and Extra High Water Jeans for Men.
