Rated 4 out of 5 by ScienceMontana color misnamed
Perfect fit. Love the feel of the regular tee just bought (almost pima but less expensive) and do like the color I bought, BUT it is NOT Malachite Green. The item labeled Malachite Green is in fact teal. The item labeled Shade Teal Heather on the back cover of the latest catalog is actually the color of malachite. I know each person's eyes are different but you do have a significant color error here. Going by wavelength (and my eye) what you call Malachite is 475 nm (a vivid blue green/turquoise shade) and what you call Teal is closer to 500 nm (dark green, pine green). Nevertheless your tees, mocks and turtles, pima and regular are fabulous. Just wish the labeling was a bit more accurate, since it is impossible for me to see the articles in person. FYI have been a customer since 1963.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Twinklebelle please make petites!
Dear LLBean - your cotton knit Bean's Tees fabric is as great as ever. I would really appreciate it if you would make more of your cotton knit tees in petite sizes - esp the longsleeve crewneck. Otherwise they are really way too long for petites like me. Currently only the 3/4 sleeve v-neck is in petite. Thanks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Twinklebelle bring back the jewel-neck!
Dear LLBean, I love your cotton knit tees; the fabric is wonderful. But whatever happened to the jewel neck styles, longsleeve & short sleeve? They were much more elegant than the crewnecks currently available and could even be worn with semi-dress clothing. I still have some of the old jewelnecks and treasure them.
Please bring back the jewel neck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by fanofllb Great t-shirt
I have purchased this tee in many colors over many years and couldn't be happier with the quality. The fabric is substantial and soft, and the neckline has a nice finish which allows the shirt to be dressed up or down. I hope LL Bean never changes the fabric or quality of construction. The fit has changed a bit and I would prefer the more relaxed fit, but I have been buying one size up and remain pleased with the shirt over all.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LynneC beautiful shirt
However, these shirts shrunk considerably upon washing. I loved the fabric and colors but not the shrinkage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lorriinOhio Awesome tee!
I love these tees! The fabric feels nice on your skin, and the shrinkage is minimal, so, if it fits when you first take it out of the package, it STAYS fitting you after you wash it! I am getting one in every color! Love these!

Rated 1 out of 5 by CherNooch Shrinks continuously
I bought this shirt in three colors. I was thrilled with their softness and fit when I purchased them. I have never dried them in the dryer, I wash in cold and hang my shirts to dry, then press them. Unfortunately these shirts have shrank and continue to shrink. They no longer stay tucked into my jeans and the sleeves are now halfway up my forearm. They have been a big disappointment. In fact I have stopped wearing them.
I did also buy a long sleeved T-shirt listed as unshrinkable, and it has washed well and I've dried it without issue. Save your money and buy the non-shrinking shirts as labeled, don't bother with these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jshophere Too thick & stiff - short baggy sleeves and length
I love my old ones..but these arent getting softer - and worse, they are old fashioned SHORT and much too stiff/thick in a bad way

This t-shirt shrunk the very first time I put it through the washer and dryer. I line-drying delicates, but I expect t-shirts to go through the washer and dryer and still be wearable. The sleeves shrunk almost 2 inches and overall the shrinkage made this size L too small for me or any adult with average size arms.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pansy A Disappointment
I have bought these t-shirts for the past several years, however, the past 2 years, I ordered a large(I'm really a size medium) to have the sleeves roomy enough for my arms to fit in and be comfortable( I am quite an active person). Now, the description of the t-shirt, mentions that is won't lose it's shape "wash and wash". I got disappointed how it shrunk and the feel of the cotton is such a let down. Now I have to purchase an XL so that after wash, I hope it won't shrink too much.
