A video look at the blogger behind Secret Forts, James Wilson. A soft-spoken, interesting cat who makes his home in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. I enjoy his blog and it was cool to see the man behind it in moving pictures. (acontinuouslean)

I am from New England, grew up on the South Shore of Boston, and cranberry bogs are something so common to me. The author took a trip from Boston down to Carver, the town next to Plymouth (Plimoth Plantation, Plymouth Rock, Mayflower replica etc) to see a bog being harvested. Great pictures of the bog and of the food the writer made with the cranberries she was gifted. (La Tartine Gourmande)

Hamilton's 1883 shirts look amazing and there was plenty of coverage at the usual suspects, because Hamilton set up a group of "Tastemakers" to sample the shirts and for an exclusive photo shoot. These well-heeled bloggers included Mister Mort's Mordechai Rubenstein, Hollister Hovey, All Plaid Out's Max Wastler, Michael Williams of A Continuous Lean and previously discussed James Wilson from Secret Forts.

I am super excited about the LL Bean Signature line designed by Rogue's Gallery founder Alex Carleton. There will be 100 pieces for both males and females, and I will have to restrain myself from buying a large percentage of these. (valetmag)

interesting part about the 100 pieces...didn't catch that, is that from the WWD article...i'm too cheap for a subscription.

Not sure which site, but I read that the collection will initially be 100 pieces for each sex.

Also an interesting thing was that they intend to open some LL Bean Signature boutiques in the future, in more urban areas. At first the signature collection will be sold in a "mini-store" within LL bean stores, think Collette or Dover St. Market.
