Rated 1 out of 5 by HuntValGuy Once burned, twice shy.
I generally buy T-shirts by the dozen, all in different colors. Last year I bought my first order, of only two, just to see if I liked them. After one wash, I returned them. The reason? Cold. Water. Wash. I may be a retired geezer but I'm still a man on the go, and I can't be bothered sorting wash other than darks and lights--I refuse to separate out, additionally, items for cold water wash. I've read dozens of reviews for this product and quite a few of them complain about puckered collars. (One reviewer referred to it as, I believe, the bacon effect.) I washed my first two in warm water with cold rinse, and of course the collars puckered. Back to the drawing board, folks--R&D needs to come up with the product with all the excellent features of the current edition but without the fussiness of the cold water wash instruction.

I have been buying this particular t-shirt for a long time but I have to say, Mr. Bean, something in this recent batch is amiss. The texture, feel, sizing and arm and body length is definitely different. If the recent reviews of the past 3 months are correct maybe you've changed manufacturers. I hope it doesn't shrink or the neck pucker after a few washings as the previous posts say. When you have a winner, stick to it.

Great feel and fit but the neck line "bacons" in no time at all. Not worth the time, effort or money to return thru the mail. I've since trimmed the neckline and turned it into a tank top. I would not recommend this shirt to anyone who sweats a lot.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sct654 Collar started puckering after first wash
I bought 2 short-sleeved and 1 long-sleeved version of these shirts. The collars on all 3 started puckering after the first wash and became pretty much unwearable after the fourth wash. I was hoping to find a new go-to layering tee but this won't be it unfortunately.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JacobR18 Sleeves Too Long
I found that the sleeves on this shirt were weirdly long - they went almost to my elbows. If sleeve length is not an issue for you, then I'd recommend this shirt, but personally I returned it.

This garment CAN BE stained. I brushed against a table and got some stain on the bottom of the shirt and it WILL NOT come out.
Love the product but it can be stained.

I expected the best from LL Bean in color, sizing and quality.
I am happy to have received it.

I bought two of these and they shrank considerably so I returned them and ordered the Pima Cotton version. The Bean Pima Cotton version does not shrink and comes out of the dryer ready to wear and soft. Pay the extra bucks and get the Pima Cotton.

The shirts are great except the neckline stretches and sags after very few wearings.
