In Love, Actually, With Lands’ End Tall Outerwear

I may reveal myself as the closet sentimentalist I truly am, but my favorite holiday movie is “Love Actually”.

The Performance Coat for the Urban Commuter c/o Lands’ End

With my size 15D feet (16 in a sneaker), walking into a shoe store and seeing all the great styles not available to me is akin to being a diabetic in candy shop. It used to make me angry. Once, at a big & tall specialty store in Manhattan, I was actually told by the…
