The Perfect Moc

GQ/Jesse Frohman
If you really know me, then you already know that I'm always in the search for a perfect something. Either the perfect hat, perfect jacket, or the perfect sunglasses. Well, now I can put to rest the search for the perfect shoe. I love LL bean and all things that come out of Maine (Go Sea Dogs). I fell in love with LL bean in college and the lover affair is still going strong with these Handsewn Blucher Moccasins.


  1. Ah, love the Bean Blucher moc. Retired a pair I bought in Freeport in 1989 just this past year. Replaced them in August with a new pair. I love them, but the new model is not the same as the Handmade in Maine version of yesterday. I wear them sockless, with anything, every day at least.

    I really struggled with the blucher moc purchase...went from Quoddy Trail to Russell Mocassin and back to LL Bean for the original. Quoddy has two great options, but neither had that certain elan quality I was after that the Bean's have.


  2. @RHW Thanks for stopping by. I would love to see some pictures of your old bluchers.
