Rated 2 out of 5 by bojanglesbo shrink dhrink
I have several of these shirts. My body size is normal. When new they are good. When washed they shrink. This is very annoying. I like the mock turtle neck but it has to fit properly. After washing I will stand on the shirt and pull on it to stretch it. This works to some degree. Why cannot LL Bean request that their supplier make appropriate changes to this shirt. I read in the reviews that I am not alone by a long shot. LL Bean should reassure their customers that a solution is in the works. What is the point of selling a product that falls short (pun intended) in performance.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pathfinder846 Nice shirt, but too short to stay tucked in.
I like these shirts a lot, but with my relatively long upper torso they are too short, especially after washing, to easily tuck in to slacks and keep them there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by neednewidea Disappointed shrinkage
This mock turtleneck fit my husband well and is comfortable, BUT, this shirt and others we have purchased shrink in length in both the arms and the body. We have only washed it twice, so far, and the wrist is already getting further up his arm. I wash it in cold water and dry on delicate, cool setting, but still get shrinkage! Why does this keep happening? We purchased this shirt, and others to replace ones that had shrunk over time and this one starts shrinking after only 2 washings. I am disappointed.
Otherwise the fit and comfort are great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 1Dissatisfied Disappointing Interlock Mock-Turtleneck
I ordered 5 (3-white, 1 navy, 1 grey) to use as a winter base layer. I am 6'2", 195lbs with a 16.5" neck and 35" sleeve. The store clerks recommended that I purchase the tall size large. After one wearing, the white and navy necks stretched out and lost shape, the grey has a bit of elastic in the neck so it continued to fit snugly. I laundered them in cold water and used the lowest dryer setting. After 2 washings, they have all shrunk excessively. I will be returning all 5 to the store and will not purchase this item again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JoDan Great fit in body , sleeves too short
I have had this shirt for about one and a half months. I am 6 feet tall. I find the sleeves in this shirt too short for comfort. Maybe shorter person could find them ok. Sorry!

Rated 3 out of 5 by rgalverson Nice, but...
The shirt is nice, but I find the sleeves on the large-tall still not long enough even though the torso length is fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Barsy Love the quality BUT
I was very pleased with the quality and the fit of these mock turtlenecks....until the first wash. Unfortunately the sleeve length shrank a couple of inches (everything else was fine) and I am now constantly pulling/stretching the sleeves when they are worn.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LaoWai Expect shrinkage, buy one size larger and taller
Sorry, but this shirt is not up to Bean's usual quality. It fit perfectly when new but after one wash it is now tight and short. Should be advertised as hand-wash only. The only reason I give it two stars is because the color did not fade in the wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SparkyMac Great Mock T-Neck!
I buy these for my husband as he prefers the mock-necks to turtlenecks. They are beautifully made, wash and wear well. You can not beat the quality of this shirt for the price. Additionally, It was delivered, free shipping in 2 days. Thanks LL Bean!
