If you read New Grass, you may very well be aware of a conundrum that has arrisen this past week. Apparently while browsing through a recent L.L. Bean catalog a fine boot specimen (see above) was found with absoultely no information about the model or price. One could only assume it was of the L.L. Bean variety considering it was highly unlikely they would put anything but their own products in their catalog. I commented how it looked like something from Russel Moccassin Co. and it was eventually determined that the boot was Bean's Ranger moc (currently not available for purchase).
Well, this morning I was browsing some online shops and came across the Bass M Ranger boot, which happens to look exactly like the mystery boot in question. The Bass version is available at Opening Ceremony (3 colorways) and is part of the the Chloë Sevigny callaboration line (on a side not: how the hell did she make that happen). So New Grass, if you are reading this, I think we can officially say, "Case closed. Sorta."
