Rated 5 out of 5 by Butterdog8 Perfect fit
This item fits perfectly and just the right length. The color is bright and cheery, it is light and not cumbersome. It will be great for cool days and evenings and will look fantastic with white shorts or slacks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laurie1234 Petites, please!
I would echo the previous review - I would buy this shirt in more than one color if only it came in petite sizes! Last year I bought 2 of the boat neck French sailor shirts in petite XS and loved them. Tried this quarter-zip version in misses XS - very nice shirt but it was way too long in the torso and arms, had to send it back. In some LL Bean styles I can get away with a misses, but this isn't one of them. Styles that are meant to be on the long side need to be offered in both size ranges.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PuppyChow please consider makeing these pullovers in petites
The 5 stars are for the three boatneck tees I purchased in 2014. Really enjoy wearing them. The quarter-zip pullover has been on my wish list for a year and I really want to buy one, but they only come in regular sizes. I'm 5'3", all the regular size tops are too long in torso and sleeve length for me. Really like the style of the pullover; the only thing that keeps me from purchasing is they are not available in petites. Would you please consider making them in petites, LLB?

Rated 1 out of 5 by KinCali Big Disappointment
I ordered this in the "blush pink" (more like a garish salmon pink), 1/4-zip neck style and am very disappointed in the quality of this garment. I have two of the boat neck sailor shirts purchased years ago, and there is no comparison as to the quality of the material. My old shirts are hefty and soft, where this shirt is thin and very scratchy. Sending it back tomorrow. It doesn't matter that it was on sale and a good price, if I don't enjoy wearing it. What a loss. Bring back the good old-time quality, please!

by MissPeggy French sailor shirt is not what it used to be
In past years, this shirt has been a winter staple for me. I will no longer buy it from LL Bean. It is no longer the heavy, sturdy knit I loved. The fabric is thinner and no longer holds its shape when worn. In addition, the sleeves and overall length have shrunk close to an inch in the first washing (see photo). I would gladly pay more for the LL Bean quality I have gotten in the past.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Run6014 Cute shirt but material is somewhat uncomfortable
This shirt is well made and I like the style. However, the material isn't comfortable against my bare skin. Hence, I wear a long-sleeved shirt under it. Works in the winter but not other warmer seasons.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LL34 A classic!
Great looking; cozy soft and warm for a cool summer night, and goes right into cool weather with a silk underneath. I absolutely love my blue with peach stripe. My 20 something daughter just purchased her first black and white, which became a favorite the second she put it on. Our only complaints are: daughter, offer more dark colours; and me, as a woman who hangs almost all of her laundry on a line to dry (don;t worry I've got 'on line' sweater blocking down to a science) I wonder if there is anyway to make the yarns even softer, for in the lack of a damaging tumble in the drier, the shirt gets a wee bit stiff

I recently purchased the yellow quarter-zip pullover and the yellow boatneck pullover. So I now have 3 quarter zips, 10 boatneck pullovers and 3 zip-up jackets. I have had most of them for many, many years and I am always so please when I take them out of the washer/dryer and they always come out perfect. The French Sailor Shirts and jackets have been my favorite go to, no matter where I am going to. I would like to make a suggestion that you make the crewneck, long sleeve pullover in purple. Thanks, L.L. Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by irishmom109 Love these tops!
I now have four colors of the same top: quarter zip, striped top. Love the way they look and the way they launder. The colors are bright and cheery. The tops can be casual or ramped up a bit for a more finished look (business casual).

Rated 5 out of 5 by bp2530 Great shirt
I love the fact that Bean sells hese shirts every year--offering new color choices. I bought one several years ago and loved it so much that I bought another color a year or so later. This year I bought a third color. The first is as bright as the newer ones. They don't seem to fade or shrink.
