Rated 5 out of 5áby flicker My new favorite
This is my new favorite shirt. It has a great fit (not too long in the body or sleeves) so I can wear it untucked. It also has a great weight, so it's not too warm, but still feels substantial. The colors are clear and it's assembled with care, so the stripes match at the seams. It came through the wash looking like new. It's so comfortable, I just ordered two more colors.

Rated 2 out of 5áby LinkMNY Sizing
I would have given this a 5-star rating, but downgraded it because it isn't available in my size. I have one from several years ago and wanted it in another color. You need to offer this one in PLUS SIZES again!!!

Rated 3 out of 5áby MJDon Very Nice But Too Short
Ladies, don't buy this unless you are a petite. I am only 5'6 and it is going to Goodwill today. It's way too short.

Rated 5 out of 5áby openmind very satisfied
I've been wearing my 1/4-zip French sailor shirt for about a month now and completely love it. Fits me very well and is very good looking. Not boxy at all, not too clingy, it just loosely follows my curves. I'm 5'6", 134 lbs, 34C. I ordered both a small and medium. The medium is perfect (small was returned). Length is perfect - a bit below mid-hip. It has been washed in cold water, then dried on low heat for about 9 min (along with other clothing), then laid flat to dry. Shrinkage was minimal but noticeable, and was corrected with careful stretching.

Rated 3 out of 5áby PattyM classic but frumpy
maybe it is me, but my recent purchases have not worked. It is not the sizing, this shirt fit properly. I was hoping it was heavier as some reviews had suggested and the collar would definitely annoy me, it hits me in the chin. I was looking for a heavier knit to wear through our cool spring in RI, too thin for that so back it goes.

Rated 5 out of 5áby QueenFrannie Simply the BEST
This is my all time favorite shirt! I have it in almost every color and hope LLBean never stops making it! Comfortable, cozy and can wear Winter, Spring and Fall. Never goes out of style!

Rated 5 out of 5áby mtbjane A classic must have
I purchased the navy/cream in an xs. I am 5'2", about 125 lbs.
Yes, the item did have an odor when I removed from the packaging. The odor went away on the first wash. And yes, the collar doesn't lay completely flat, but it is a minor item.
I love the way it looks. It is a lovely fit, not too tight and not too loose. The navy color is a classic look. I received many compliments. The fabric weight is substantial for cooler days. I am now deciding which color to order next. The price is simply unbeatable!

Rated 3 out of 5áby Debilynn62 Collar would not lay properly/ Fabric itched
I usually love the quarter zip pullovers in the fleece fabric. I decided to try this style from the spring collection. The collar would not lay down properly and the fabric itched.
Although, the itch might go away with washing, the collar appeared to be a bigger problem. I don't mind spending a little more money for quality, good fitting, and comfortable clothing. However, I don't want to spend the money and have to work on them to make them doable.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BeansRegular My Collection Grows Each Year
I have at least 10 of these in the quarter zip and 4 in the full zip hoodie version that was offered several years ago. I find these to be very comfortable pullovers that layer nicely over any tank or tee.
They are traditionally straight cut and longer length, not what I would call boxy (because not short in length) but definitely not fitted. That is why I like them for casual wear--they slide smoothly over any bottom you are wearing. I prefer the long sleever version as I have the option to keep the sleeves long for extra warmth--and that allows me to wear these almost year round--or push them up to 3/4 length. The collars initially have trouble lying flat when unzipped, but will eventully soften enough to do so after one washing.
The fabric is a thicker ribbed cotton, a true midweigt fabric that is thicker than any basic tee shirt. Over the years, as my collection has grown, I have noticed that the fabric has gotten a bit thinner and the fit has gotten a bit shorter and tighter (I am the same exact size--honest), but my usual XS still fits fine over any tee. They are still way above the quality of any similar shirt on the market. I have also noticed recently that some of them have come out of their packaging with a strong chemical odor. This odor disappeared after hanging in the open for no more than 24 hours, and never reappeared. I would be concerned if the odor did not dissipate as quickly as it does. This has only occurred occasionally and not with every color.
I am happy and excited to see that LLBean continues to offer these in a greater variety of colors as time goes on, allowing me to add to my collection and keep trendy colorwise with a non-trendy classic styling!
These shirts look great and are very versatile and you will be pleasantly surprised if you have never ordered one of these before!
