LL Bean Boot
Whether leather or waxed canvas, 10 inches or mocs, every man should own a pair of LL Bean Boots and for the right reasons. Not because it's the hip thing to do at the moment but because the boots are actually comfortable, durable and just plain ol' gets the job done. And as my father once told me in high school when I showed him a picture of a luggage brand that started making watches, "Why would you buy a watch from a company that doesn't make watches?" I will turn around and ask you the same question about your boots.
Editor's Note: I decided to kick off Every Man Should Own with my own post to give you a flavor for what's in store. In the upcoming weeks, you will see contributions from Bloggers, Designers, and much much more.
