Rated 5 out of 5 by hersheymom90 ...but it's not true French blue!!!
I have ordered many of these shirts for my husband over the years and they are wonderful in every way, but the French blue of this classic oxford cloth shirt is NOT the French blue of the pinpoint oxford cloth shirts. My husband prefers classic over pinpoint but this shade of French blue simply will not do for him.

We have purchased many of these shirts over time and had to return many as they developed tears in the fabric. The last one was purchased in December, and developed the tear within months. An email from LLBean stated as follows:
Dear Ms. Nestor:
I am terribly sorry that your oxford shirt have torn. As LLBean saw numerous returns coming in last fall for faulty fabric, the Men's Team was sent to the factories to discuss the problem. There were instances of the fabric splitting on the crease of the wrinkle resistant shirts.
The Quality Assurance Team created an action plan and the fabric issue has been corrected. I hope you order more shirts and give LLBean another chance.

I am hesitant to give them another try....

My wife and my daughter purchased several of these shirts from LL Bean about 5 years ago for a Xmas present for me. Do I like the quality? I now have every color of shirt that LL Bean has. Quality is outstanding. Shirts come out of the dryer ready to wear. I cannot say enough about these shirts.
Trust me you will not find better quality and an outstanding fit. I have paid 100.00 plus for a British tailored shirt and it does not compare to this.

This shirt is made the way all shirts should be made. Most shirts fit fine, but most shirts are no longer made of the great quality fabric that this shirt is. The see-thru fabric from other companies will never compare to this fabric. Thank you L.L. Bean -- I will be ordering more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mtnblue Great shirts but traditional fit is HUGE
If you have a slightly larger neck size (I wear 16 or 16.5) but a normal body size these shirts are absolutely huge. I have bought slightly fitted or slim fit shirts from LL Bean which fit me much better. However, there are very few color choices in those styles. I really wish LL Bean would offer a wide range of colors in the various styles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mies07 Bring back Burgundy stripe
Excellent shirt, purchase them regularly, last a long time and launder well. But for some reason you seem to have discontinued the long sleeve Burgundy color stripe, which goes well with my wardrobe, and have been patiently waiting for this color to reappear. Please bring it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by D9102T GREAT shirt - one drawback
These shirts are by far, the best value for the money when it comes to wrinkle-free oxfords - there's just no comparison elsewhere, especially when they offer 10% or even 20% off of your entire purchase, but even without the discount, the quality is unsurpassed - except one small issue - the sleeve button-hole. On multiple shirts, within about 6 months or so, they inevitably begin to lose the stitching that holds the hole together. I have about 20 of these shirts and nearly every one of them has this problem on one or both sleeves. They really aren't noticeable to others, but you'll know it when you attempt to button or unbutton the sleeves and the button gets caught in the new "loop" created when the stitching partially pulls from the cloth and catches the button as you're trying to put on or remove the shirt. This said, I'll continue to buy these shirts, but it would be great if Bean could improve on this without an upcharge for the shirt.

I have several of these Oxford cloth shirts from L.L.Bean. They are beautiful and very well constructed. I'm sure that they will last and last. I appreciate the company's policy of free shipping with no minimum, and customer service is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CactusJeff Awesome Material- great fit- Very Nice shirt.
Hello, I work in an office but frequently have to go out in the field. I wear neckties, enjoy a nice clean shirt. I Purchased this shirt as a Christmas present to myself. I am very impressed. It fits perfectly, I MEAN PERFECTLY. The material is high quality cotton. It feels great, and looks very sharp. The stitching is nice and the yoke lays very nicely across my shoulders. I have laundered it a couple of times at home, and so far - EXCELLENT. I am very pleased. I just purchased another one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Edeltraud Is French Blue just light blue sold in France?
I ordered both the light & French blue colors as replacements for my older one's which finally were discarded after years of wear. These shirts appear to be of a very similar material and fit the same, although the wrinkle resistant coating makes the material feel somewhat stiffer to the touch. I'm still happy with them.
As far is the color is concerned, the light blue is the same color as in years past but the French blue is (to my fading eyes) just a slightly different shade of light blue. But I can always use good light blue shirts!
