L.L.Bean Boat & Totes

Vodpod videos no longer available. Just in time for summer, Mary Rose MacKinnon of L.L. Bean sent me this video featuring some great footage of their Boat & Tote in production. Pick yours up today. Once I get my ducks in a row, I’ll be picking up the Maine Inland Fisheries & Wildlife Hunter’s Bag; a portion of the purchase of one of these bags will be donated to the MDIFW.bat

Lost Boys

lost-boys-000Lost Boys sits on a quiet street steps from the heart of Georgetown’s hectic M Street. A row house which formerly played host to a law firm has been converted by D.C. native Kelly Muccio into a smartly-outfitted menswear boutique.

lost-boys-001“I can’t tell you the hours I spent in Home Depot figuring out the plumbing for the garment racks,” Ms. Muccio told me during a recent visit.  Lining the racks are well-curated offerings from brands like Band of Outsiders, Rogan, Shipley & Halmos, and Steven Alan; I was galvanized.

lost-boys-003While the selections err on the side of conservative, Ms. Muccio’s been able to inject some style into our nation’s capitol. Lately, the store has received as much attention for the clothes as it has for the fact Kelly and crew serve beer, liquor, and sparkling water from Italy.

lost-boys-004“We probably go through a case a month… if that,” Kelly laughed. “People are coming here to shop not to drink beer.”

Muccio likes to combine the rough and the delicate, like flowers and chains. Even the store’s name nods to both the whimsical characters of J.M. Barrie’s most famous novel and Joel Schumacher’s late eighties rough and tumble vampire flick.

lost-boys-006Lost Boys offers personal shopping as well. Ms. Muccio and her staff can help you prepare for a hot date or provide a full style upgrade. Around the shop hang framed photos of real Washingtonians post-visit to “The Style Bar.”

If you’re in the neighborhood, definitely stop by Lost Boys. Crush a brew and pick up some high quality denim while you’re at it.
