Rated 3 out of 5 by cmg4llb Frays Too Soon!
I have been a loyal customer to LLBean for years and have loved these shirts, but the last couple did not last long -- maybe 8 months before they started fraying and small holes started appearing along the collar and cuffs (unbelievable). I gave 3 stars because the shirts are really wrinkle free, but for the money no longer worth it given their short life.

Just received my shirt! I wore it to work today and everyone complimented how nice it looked! Nice material, comfortable and fits well. LLBean shirts are the best!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ckuttner Love these shirts!
I've come to the point I wear only LL Bean shirts for workdays or dress-up.
What do I like about them?
1) Unpacking them is a delight. No pins, easy to open up and not worry about concealed (pin) weapons.
2) The shirts look crisp all day long but don't feel stiff. In fact, the cotton material is a bit thick, but breathes well.
3) They're durable, and last through many washes.
4) Serendipity: I bought this in Burnt Orange on impulse. Every day I wear this shirt, I get several compliments on the color--and I'm a pretty low-key guy.
5) Great value. You can buy dress shirts for less, but the comfort and looks just aren't the same.
6) Great service: I once had a cuff pull off when I was putting on one of these shirts that I'd had several months, it just hadn't been stitched well. I called up LL Bean and had a replacement in a few days.

Rated 1 out of 5 by OxfordShirtGuy Frayed/Wears quickly
As some others have noted, these shirts -- some of them, anyway, and certainly some I've bought -- have a tendency to suddenly have fabric fray or otherwise fail. The first shirt to do this was a blue long-sleeve shirt, and I simply threw it away, assuming it was a fluke. Now a second shirt has suddenly developed a hole in the upper sleeve; can't wear that one to work again. This one will be returned to try out Bean's warranty.
I don't remember how long I've had this shirt, but it has not been heavily used. It's in with a bunch of other Oxford shirts that are worn every 2 or 3 weeks -- the shirt otherwise looks almost new.
I see from other comments that this issue may have been addressed in newer shirts. Based on the shirts I have, though, these are certainly not worth $45.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ThriftyOne Wonderful shirt quality!
Love this shirt, will only purchase wrinkle free shirts from now on! Love the muted color, fits was perfectly after I exchanged for the right size, (my fault) I wish they had more colors, a go to shirt for most all occasions! Love the quality and the fit! LL Bean did it again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ski522 Great shirt, but need more colors!
It is so nice to find a shirt that has quality and uses actual sleeve lengths! Every time I buy a dress shirt with the old 34/35 length it's always 34 no matter what! I need and want a 35, not one that pretends to be! With this shirt I'm so happy to be able to order a 35" sleeve length that really is 35"!
The shirt itself is very well made and high quality and I'm complemented on them quite often. Hang it right out of the dryer and it won't need to be iron!
What LL Bean needs to do now is add some more colors, like darker blues and maybe a tan/cream color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Penquin33 Its a winner!!! Great quality & fit.
I purchased this a few months ago. The quality is excellent. Fabric very rich looking and the no-iron a must for me. Bought the burnt orange color which was much more muted in person and looks great. Hubby gave me the raised eyebrow when I told him I got him an orange shirt, but LOVED the shirt and the color was tame enough for him. Told me to buy more of this fit in different colors... he liked the fabric and fit that much. I have bought $100 shirts from well known mens shops that don't come close to the quality of this shirt. Hope they don't change the "recipe" !

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanDave Need more colors
These are my favorite shirts of this type. They seem very durable. I haven't had any problems with them wearing out after several years. I just wish there were more colors to choose from since I believe I already have all of the limited color selection currently available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sweetb53 great shirt!
i have ordered this style shirt for my husband for a few years now. i have just ordered him a couple for Christmas. this is his favorite shirt to wear to work- nice fit, heavy material, and looks nice after washing. i do hang these up to dry- so i need to iron them a bit. they are not difficult to iron, though. my husband is NOT easy on his clothes, so i can honestly say that these shirts are durable, as well as sharp looking!

I would recommend the shirt in general for quality, but the burnt orange color choice was horrible. I returned it knowing my husband would never wear it. Totally does not look like what is pictured on the web site. It reminded me of Halloween.
