Rated 5 out of 5 by chameli The best pima on the market
My first Pima shirt was from 18 years ago also from LLBean. I wear that shirt even today and it still looks like new. I bought a few more pimas on sale after that I use to layer since LLBean made them very long. Therefore I was thrilled when I found that now they are being offered in petite sizes.
I have worn so-called pima shirts from other vendors but none come close to the silky softness of the LLBean Pimas.
This will be my favorite shirts for many years like my first one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by PeaceMom Great fabric and colors
But the neck is too big in the plus sizes. I never have understood why designers think plus sized women have necks like football players. I deducted 2 stars for the neck size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by topogj Pima Cotton Tee, Long-Sleeve Crewneck
Rich Violet, the color is beautiful. The only reason I deduct a star is the thickness of the material. After reading other reviews about shrinking I ordered up a size and glad I did. I really like this shirt I just wish that I could find something in a thicker material.

What can you say about anything made with pima cotton - it's so soft, smooth and comfortable!
The crew neck is so easy to wear with just about everything. And I love the long sleeves! I can push them up for a 3/4 look or wear them down - perfect.
Fall is coming - will be buying more of these (I hope LLBean will be carrying a deep chocolate this year!).

Rated 1 out of 5 by teatotaler Disappointed
I just bought numerous items for fall from LL Bean...Out of the 7 things I bought I like just 1 item, the Fitness Fleece Full Zip Jacket....Not these Pima t-shirts though....I kept reading reviews that said they shrink like crazy..Well let me tell you theses and the 2 Interlock Crew T-Shirts I received did NOT shrink at all. And now I'm stuck with 4 big, baggy shirts I don't like..I should have bought Petite's only..In a medium size. And I wear a true size 12...The Pima T-Shirts sleeves are at least 3 inches too long...And the interlock T's are at least 4 inches too long..How can reviews and experiences be so different? And I do like my T's a little on the loose fitting size...Go figure, I will have to send em back AFTER I get back from my road trip. It takes a long time to get these with the free shipping...

I love the fabric and fit of this shirt. I have three of these from previous years in dark colors. I wanted a shirt in pink, so I ordered the hydrangea. In my opinion this tee just looks a little more polished and dressier than other tees. Although I am 5'2", I prefer the fit of the regular size in this shirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by msrychck Great shirt, sleeves way too skinny
I love this shirt. It holds up to washing and the fit is perfect, except for the sleeves. I bought the small and I have very thin arms. They sleeves are skin tight. For someone with normal sized arms I don't think they would be happy with the arm fit. I really want more of them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yourmajesty Supeme Supima
I have purchased many of these supima tees and plan on buying more. Some unhappy shoppers feel that the texture of supima feels cheap and thin. These folks don't appreciate the nature of this fabric. These shirts fit true to size and will stay that way if they are laundered gently and hung to air dry. They are my most comfortable tees I have ever owned and I have been around a long time. Well done Mr. Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gatanera beautiful skimming fit
I bought 3 of these t-shirts. The colors are beautiful, the material is elegant and the fit perfect. They are replacing 3 similar t-shirts of another brand that had a lot of lycra in them and which were way too clingy.
I plan on buying more of these...They can be worn all year 'round and dressed up or down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sgettoit Good old reliable, with a new proportion
I have been buying versions of the the LL Bean Pima cotton shirts, for nearly 20 years. They are multi-purpose, comfortable, easy care, and wear like iron. It could take 5 years of wear, or more, to wear them out. Every year or so, I purchase another few.
This year's Pima cotton long-sleeve crew neck is made with updated proportions, longer in length, and slimmer, with the neckline a little higher. It looks and feels great on. I am just over 5 feet tall, and the regular size fit is flattering on me. Although I could wear a L by measurement, I sized up to an XL, for more wearing ease. I recently purchased a white, and a cream, and will probably be back for another color or two.
Please keep these shirts, and fabric in stock.
