Rated 5 out of 5 by KathyinMN Dressy and comfortable
I like the weight and drape of these shirts; the fabric is sturdy enough to hang very nicely and camouflage my figure flaws, unlike many knit shirts which cling to the body. Feels luxurious - dressy but very comfortable.
I haven't had a problem with excess shrinkage; I compared a new shirt to two I've worn and washed regularly for a year and a half, and the older ones had shrunk less than an inch in length and less than half an inch in the sleeves. Mine have not stretched in width at all. I tumble them for just a few minutes in the dryer, then hang overnight to dry.
I hope to see the long-sleeved v-neck come back for winter. The fabric works very well for layering - the shirts are silky enough to make wearing a flannel or corduroy shirt over them easy. The crew-necks are too snug for my taste, and I don't like 3/4 sleeves. Please bring back the long sleeves. Thanks!
For size reference, I'm 5' 6" and about 185 lbs., and the XL fits well. Comes to low hip, even after multiple washings.

Please bring back the relaxed fit. Not every woman wants form fitting shirts. I would only recommend to a friend if they do not want a looser shirt. All shapes and sizes like to get outdoors LL Bean!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Missy415 Too thin.
This item has gone down hill. It is very thin now and when washed the dye came out on other clothes.

This has been my favorite shirt for many years. It would be fun to know how many I have owned. I bet I have bought over 100 of these shirts! llbean, can you research this for me? :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mymountains Disappointed!
I cannot believe anyone would recommend this product. This shirt shrunk considerably in length and got wider after washing it and putting it in the dryer for only 8 minutes (which I do for all of my tee shirts). I am so disappointed in these shirts.
Last years 100% cotton shirt (item #254790) did not shrink at all and retained its shape.
The only redeeming comment I can make is the shirt is very soft!

Rated 5 out of 5 by silver22 comfortably soft
I bought Coral Rose in the store. I like the top, its so soft, that I ordered Royal Plum & Charcoal Heather, online. I wash on delicate cycle, and hang to dry. There are a lot of mixed reviews. I have noticed changes in clothing in several stores too, so its just not LL Bean. I have learned that, I will only order online if I recently tried it on in the store, that way I know it fits.

Rated 5 out of 5 by saidylady More V-necks please
I wear these tee shirts all the time. They fit nicely and the material is soft yet substantial.
Please bring back the V-neck in plus sizes, short sleeves.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Molly107 Disappointed!!
I purchased this shirt in teal in May, and I have just worn and washed it for the first time. After washing it in cold water and drying it on a rack rather than in the dryer, it shrunk by 2" in length but stretched in width. I did not purchase this shirt with the intent that I'd wear it once and then throw it out! I've been a loyal LLBean customer for 30 years and an LLBean VISA customer for about 20 years, but I think I am done with buying clothing from the company. So many of the items I have purchased over the last few years have been of inferior quality and end up being my go-to attire for yard-work after just a few washings. Don't buy this shirt unless you'd like it shrink in length and stretch in width. What a disappointment

Rated 5 out of 5 by HikingComfortably These shirts rock!
Unlike many of the people who have reviewed these shirts, I have absolutely no problems with any I have purchased either through the years or recently. They are wonderful in every style! Fit in M is great for my somewhat smaller frame, no shrinkage, colors are amazing (I think I have nearly every color in crew neck long and short sleeve, v-neck long and short sleeve), fabric is soft and comfortable even after many washings. Absolutely no complaints with the shirts; they rock! Just wish LL Bean would bring back two wonderful colors: true blue and sun. Can't tell you how many compliments I get when I wear shirts in these colors. Thanks LLB for such a great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sadteeshirtlover Pima cotton tee
I ordered these tee shirts because my favorite unshrinkable carefree tee was no longer available. The material is a bit thin, it's clingy, and does shrink after washing. A true disappointment. I've found I pass over them in the closet for an older faded tee, so they'll end up in the charity bag. Please bring back the carefree tee, it's worth the extra money to have a shirt you like wearing.
