GANT vs. L.L.Bean: Norwegian Sweater Battle

As I mentioned in my previous post, I just went to the mall to buy a Levi's 501 (size 33/34 in "one wash", if you'd like to know).

Stopping by at GANT's, I've noticed the same Norwegian sweater (navy/white) I've bought several weeks ago from L.L.Bean.

Priced at something around 220 Euros, it costs twice as much as L.L.Bean's (made in Norway!).

The GANT sweater comes with 20% of Nylon, just like the old one from L.L.Bean all our Trad and Preppy blogger friends seem to prefer (Unfortunately I wasn't able to figure out where it was made).

So, here's the GANT sweater:

And here's is L.L.Bean's:

The direction of the patterns is the same. But the GANT sweater comes with a label on the left side right over the waistband.

What do you think about that?

I think I don't like denim anymore...

Spruce, Ladies and Gentleman.

Seven for all Mankind

Caterpillar boots

So this is my new L.L.Bean Shetland sweater. It's really nice and warm.
Paired with a light blue OCBD, a Seven for all Mankind bootcut jeans and Caterpillar boots in chocolate, it's a kind of rugged get-up.

To be honest, I really don't like this outfit very much. I blame it on the denim, I guess (dark blue would have been a better choice).

Some of you might think, that wearing jeans in the office is inappropriate. But as we do not have a dress code at all, it's ok. And you guys know that I hardly ever wear jeans at work!

I really wanted to wear these boots today, so denim was the only choice.
 I think about buying a dark blue Levi's 501. Would be my first Levi's since...uhm...1990?!

When it comes to denim, which brand would be Preppy or Trad (if jeans would be Preppy or Trad at all)?
