I have bought these shirts for my husband. After about 10 washing they absolutely fall apart in the washing machine. It seems the fabric comes apart at the buttons. The shirts are not really worth the money if they don't hold up in the machine. Very disappointed.this happened to 4 shirts.

Rated 1 out of 5 by guym Terrible Shirt, Not ColorFast
I washed the shirt for the first time and the nice yellow shirt turned blue from the Clorox2 (blue). I repeatedly re-washed in a bucket with Clorox2 and Shout, and the bluing still didn't come out. No other clothes in the same wash had caused any bluing nor to the other clothes. It looked like I poured the Clorox2 into the wash and the shirt reacted blue afterwards. No other shirt I have owned has ever reacted this way. The shirt makers need to make their clothes COLORFAST. LLBean should drop this line of shirts - poor quality.

Fabric stays stiff as cardboard, even after multiple washes to try to soften it up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by 9615 Does not clean well
After wearing the shirt twice and washing it after every use the ring around the collar would not go away. Will return it. Hopefully the more expensive 100% poplin will clean up better. First time I have had a problem with LLBean quality.
Thank you. Dr. DeVeau

Rated 3 out of 5 by Roger04210 More buttons please....
Short sleeve Oxford shirts are hard to find in different colors. For the price paid, I was expecting a top-notch shirt. The material is good quality and it fits well. I am of average height and found that the buttons, only seven, go down to just above the belt line. One more button below the belt would be a great addition and would keep the shirt tucked in well throughout the day. I have no need to buy the Tall style shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by youthinkofaname Best shirt ever
I bought this shirt in blue and white checked for my husband. He's worn it several times and loves the feel and fit. I LOVE the fact that it can be packed in a suitcase and come out wrinkle-free. Not all wrinkle resistant shirts do that. I would like to see more colors; maybe tan and white or green and white. The current colors of red, white and blue checked or the green, blue and white checked shirt would be a bit too flashy for him. A subtle stripe would be nice too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 55yearolddad Finally, Found a Great Shirt
I was so tired of buying shirts in local stores that didn't fit, or not for long. I bought the XL but the bottoms of the shirts always rode up quickly to my waist or snuck up above the belt line.
I ordered the LLB XL "tall" size and am very happy with the fit and the entire quality of the shirts. After several washings they are plenty long and tuck in 4 or 5 inches below the belt line.
This review applies to both the Oxford and the canvas 2-pocket shirt 270136.
I thought the LL Bean shirts were a tad more expensive, but grew to hate even putting on the other shirts and wearing them all day. Considering the number of hours and time I will be wearing these shirts it is well worth it. I am adding two or three more shirts to my wardrobe every month from LL Bean. I am extremely happy with the length and fit, finally, and the quality of material and finish is very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 9615 Fantastic!
LL Bean is the best. These shirts come out of the dryer looking like they just came from the Dry Cleaner Store. Wish LL Bean had suits.
I buy most of my clothes here. If you are not happy, don't complain just send it back. What better customer service could you ask for.

My never ending quest for short sleeve dress shirts brought me to a few online retailers. Short sleeve dress shirts just don't seem to be that popular anymore...why ?
Anyway I decided to give LL Bean's Oxfords a try for the first time.
My shirt (green) arrived today and within less than 30 minutes I ordered another *6.
I wear a 17.5 neck regular and that's what I ordered. The shirt fits great and has *plenty of torso length which is somewhat *uncommon these days.
No issues with fit at all. Several reviews here mentioned a "tent" like fit in the mid section but for me 5'11 215 lbs this shirt covers my gut and sits *flat against my lower torso. Some other brands will "flare out" at the end due to not having enough torso length.
Colors do seem lighter than what is photographed. I do wish LL Bean presented the colors better in the photographs.
I am glad I ordred early in the season. These will be sold out for sure !
