Rated 2 out of 5 by HehMan Unshrinkable - Not Really!
Have about 10 of these shirts. They fit perfectly when I first received them. The fit and look were perfect. They were washed as instructed in cold water. Then I noticed that the sleeve length began to shrink. Sleeve length has shrunk 1"-2" after a half dozen washes. The shrink is inconsistent but everyone one has shrunk. The "unshrinkable" claim does not hold up in actual use. This applies to black, red and yellow colors. I will attempt to return these and will buy the Tall version to compensate for the inevitable shrinking.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Sunslip Inconsistent Fit/Red too Bright
I got two of these shirts, one black and one "warm red." Although the construction quality seems high, and the material is very soft, smooth and comfortable, the "L. Reg" red shirt is enormous, hanging down past my crotch (and I'm just taller than 6'), while the same-sized black shirt is much smaller and shorter and snug around my not-very-fat belly. The necks on both shirts, also, have too much elastic and rest against the front of my neck, just under my Adam's apple, giving me a choking sensation, which is uncomfortable so I keep pulling it down and trying to stretch and fight with it. The "warm red," also, is actually very bright red, like florescent red. I'm really disappointed in both shirts, as I love long sleeve Ts, thought I'd found a winner, and these weren't even particularly cheap, either.
I used to shop at LL Bean much more often, but had started going to brick-and-mortar stores to try clothes on first. But then I saw a great flash-sale discount offer shared on social media and thought I'd try again. I also bought two sweaters and will review them later.

Rated 5 out of 5 by warrenisaac Love these shirts!
I got the blue, light blue, and black ones last winter, and they are still my favorite shirts! They are soft but tough, and definitely durable. I wore them working in an indoor lumber yard all winter and spring, and there was never any tears, snags, or problems!
However, just so you know, drywall does stain them...
I have been wearing them all of this winter as well. I am extremely sensitive to my clothing, and need to have the softest clothes with no tags or uncomfortable seams. And these fit the bill! Like others have said, they are a bit boxy, but that's part of the reason I like them so much. They are great shirts. Expensive, but worth the money for me. I try to stock up when they go on sale!

Rated 5 out of 5 by 10spro Exactly what I wanted!
I am new to LL Bean this past year. My father has ordered a few things in the past. I love the outdoors and love to be comfortable while enjoying the outdoors. This is a great layer underneath a flannel button up or by itself with a jacket. Thank you for a great product!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Zabubabobby GREEN color is NOT ACCURATE
Three star review is because the GREEN "color" shirt shown on the website is a much different color from the one that I received. I have ordered several items from LL Bean, most of which have been fairly true to color. However, the green color that I received in this long sleeve T has much more yellow in it - like a leaf green versus a cooler shade like sage green, which is more like the photo. LL Bean calls it DARK ELM, however, there is nothing "dark" about it.
I really like LL Bean clothing, but it is annoying to receive something that is so different in color and have to go through the hassle of returning it. No problem with the quality and comfort - first rate!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Obviousman Nice but think about the size
These are nice T-Shirts but the sleeves do shrink. I have always washed them in cold water and dried them on delicate. Inspite of this the sleeves have become shorter than they were when I received them back in the fall.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KBeaner very boxy
I wanted to wear this as both an undershirt with a sweater and on its own... it does not really work for the former as the cut is very large and boxy (I wear a 42 suit and ordered medium)...
the material is thick and feel likes durable good quality cotton...

This is probably my eighth or tenth time I have ordered these shirts and I have never been disappointed. My original tee shirts are still going strong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mwing Comfortable shirt, but shrinks
I gave this shirt 4 stars because it shrinks and isn't as thick as I expected it to be. It still is very comfortable though and I do still like it a lot. I will be wearing it in warmer weather (40s- 50s F), or else under something else in colder weather.
I am female, ordered a men's medium, which is pretty much comparable to a woman's large or extra large (depending if you like it loose or not). (I am 5'7, 160 pounds).

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanFanMontereyCA Great Gift!!
Gifted my fussy husband with two of these for Christmas and they are EXACTLY what he wanted! Fit, fabric, cut, workmanship, cuffs, color, length are all great and they are true-to-size. Plus they were on sale and have the LL Bean quality for long and cheerful wear!
