What’s in our mailbox this month
Bloomingdale’s hot fall 2010 catalog is 172 pages of trendy looks, polybagged with Bloomie’s Insider savings certificate. Sold.
Bike Nashbar’s catalog, with its scrappy vintage cover photo and insistent yellow and red call-outs, was impossible to ignore.
L.L. Bean’s strength is wardrobe classics. The $29.50 cotton/cashmere price and free shipping promo keep Bean in the consideration set.
Our high-end Ibex merino wool top is beloved, but this cover is a dud: muddy colors and a too-subtle logo make this book a miss.
