Rated 3 out of 5 by mom77mass cotton tee
I have purchased 3 of these tees . I wash in cold water and always dry on a rack. They have all shrunk up!! So much for hitting at the hip where you like them

I have gotten these shirts over several years, identifying by price and 'Cambodia'. They have been perfect. Smaller neck opening and more form fitting than other styles I've ordered.
I am disappointed the shirts I received in January 2016 are slightly looser. Still keepers though. I wash in cold water, spiritz with water if wrinkled after cool dryer.

Rated 3 out of 5 by SueBee749 Nice fit, but wrinkles
I like the fit of this shirt and didn't notice that it shrank but I am quite unhappy with the fact that it comes out of the dryer so wrinkled! I definitely have to iron it. I don't understand why we can't buy nice non-wrinkle cotton knits like I used to be able to buy. I have better things to do than iron!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ellaandgeorgesmom I love this shirt... but...
This tshirt is incredibly warm, soft and durable. It has a comfortable and easy fit that doesn't look sloppy. I have worn this shirt under a flannel and on its own-- it looks great either way! Actually, I really liked how it looked with dark skinny jeans, boots and a scarf!
HOWEVER, I washed it in cold on delicate, hung up to dry over night and FLUFFED for 10 minutes in the morning and noticed it shrunk an entire size! Really, it shrunk in length and width. I am not able to tuck it into mid-rise jeans now.
I purchased an XS, my usual size and now I really need to be careful. I'll consider buying a S when I order my next one (which I will because it looks and feels so great- a true staple for a busy mom!).
For reference I am 5'4, 115lb and 32d.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DogsForever Too much shrinkage!
Loved this shirt when first wearing it as very soft, medium weight fabric. But after two washes in warm/cold water & low dryer until only damp & hung to dry, it has shrunk approx. 1 1/2 inches in length of body & sleeves! Very disappointing!! If buying, you might consider ordering 1 size larger to allow for the shrinkage!

Rated 3 out of 5 by tutes great fabric weight
LLbean has great quality in their fabrics. Why is it with such great quality there is so much shrinkage? What ever happened to preshrinking material? You get a shirt that you love because no one else sells great quality and colors .In the beginning after receiving the shirt the length of sleeves and body are great. After a few washings you loose two inches all over. I like longer sleeves , not ones that sit above my wrist.
.The overall fit is true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PacificCoastHiker Good quality and stylish long sleeve cotton top
I like the cut of this top, roomy but not baggy, and plenty long enough to tuck in.
No sewn in label that can cause skin irritation.
The neck is well designed and does not stretch out of shape.
The stitching on the two I bought appears to be well done, no obvious flaws at all.
I really like this top and will likely add more colors to the two I already bought.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShanghaiRed Sizing & Colors Could Be Better
I own several of Beans long sleeve crewneck tee shirts that I have purchased over the past several years and I love them. I only gave the shirt three stars because the sizing and colors available in the past two years have fallen below Bean's usual superior standards.
Other reviewers have complained that their tee shirts have shrunk. I wish I had that experience as the last few of these tees I have bought in my "usual size" have been way too big. Up until the past year I have always worn a misses XL in Beans tee shirts. I am 5'6 and weigh about 130 pounds. I have been this height and weight for over thirty years so it's not me. The current XL has sleeves that hang below my fingers and the shirt body is so long that I could wear it as a dress if I belted it!
Bean is great about exchanges so the XLs were exchanged for Ls, but even those were a little too big. I measured a new XL Beans Tee against a new and unwashed XL I had purchased over a year before and the newer XL was giant in comparison. It seems that Bean may be increasing their sizing measurements. Whatever the reason behind this issue which I have experienced with all of the tee shirts I have purchased in the last year, it is very frustrating.
Where are all of the good colors? I do not like any shade with "heather" in the title. They tend to all look washed out and dull. How about a nice soft pink or yellow? It would be great if the Beans Tees (in both long and short sleeve) were available in the same colors as the Pima Tees.
If the sizing issues were managed and better colors were offered, I would gladly give this item FIVE SOLID STARS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alice4447 One is not enough
This is the second one I bought in this color (blue heather). The first one fit so well, and was so soft and cuddly, and the color so lovely, I knew I had to have two, in case something happened to the first. Certainly one of the best items I ever bought from L.L.Bean, and that's saying a lot.

Very disappointed in the level of shrinkage for this shirt. Probably shrunk 2 sizes after the first wash. Will be returning for a refund.
