Shopping from 1982: LL Bean
On the subject of heritage garb for women, here is what was available from LL Bean in 1982. What I love about this era of LL Bean is how many items are offered in unisex sizes and colors (seriously...when was the last time you saw a contemporary catalog listing the exact same item, in the same colorway, "for men and women?"). While some of the clothing items are on the blandly prep side, I would immediately mail order the madras shirt, Chouinard shorts, tassel mocs and the anorak. For a view of the full catalog reprint, see the venerable Heavy Tweed Jacket.
