They've pretty well nailed it with quality and selection of bricks. Truth is, I favor LL Bean for clothing and such. I shop online and physical catalogs, but before finalizing I give them a call, usually around 4:00 a.m. Freeport, Maine time. Imagine the thrill it gives some poor operator standing by, mostly trying to stay awake. If you don't like really snug fitting socks, she can steer you away from a particular model. Want the same design of belt you had a year or two ago. No problem. She'll look it right up for you. And if you're interested in the weather in Maine at 4:00 a.m. she'll share that with you, too.
This reminds me of that scene in "Being John Malkovitch" where he's buying towels.
...if I get the set, instead of the bath mat?
-Yes, sir. Sure, we can do that. - Great. That sounds good.
And for the color: periwinkle?
I'm sorry. We're out of stock in periwinkle. Do you want to back order?
No. I'll go with the loden.
