Rated 5 out of 5 by MarkMA Unparalleled Comfort and Warmth
My wife bought me one of these shirts (Black Watch) for Christmas this year. It immediately became my favorite shirt. Not only is it extremely comfortable, but provides a level of warmth that is unparalleled. I have since bought four more of these shirts and have recommended them to my co-workers. I am 5'9'', 175lbs and the Large fits perfectly. Great shirt all around.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BobG1234 M Was Way Too Large / Not (IMO) Portuguese Flannel
When the M shirt which I ordered originally was way too large I ordered the same shirt in S. The S, even after laundering, fit fine. My chest is around 39. So the M was returned and this review, from here on out, is about the S.
The material is not what I would call Portuguese Flannel. Several years ago I bought several Portuguese Flannel shirts from another company. That material was almost as smooth as plain old cotton. But this material that LLBean is calling Portuguese Flannel is almost as fuzzy as regular flannel. You'd be hard pressed to tell the difference.
I have worn the shirt for only a minute or two to verify the fit after it came out of the dryer. But the tag on the collar was bothering me a bit. It looks like it should be easy to remove.
It's a nice shirt; I do not plan to return it. The low rating is due to the fact that it's not (what I would call) Portuguese Flannel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LIttleRedFlyFisher Incredibly Cozy, A Little Roomy
First of all: wow. This is the definition of flannel. It's ridiculously warm and incredibly comfortable. The traditional fit is a little roomy, though. I'm about 5'9", 175lbs, and the medium was pretty big. I didn't want to go through the hassle of exchanging it, so I washed it in hot water and dried it for about 45 minutes, and it shrunk quite a bit. So if you end up with a size that's a little roomy, try my approach. Overall, though, this flannel is amazing. I live in Memphis, but spend the majority of the fall/winter in Arkansas on the Little Red and White Rivers. This flannel is a perfect midlayer, or even by itself on warmer fall days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bingobabs Great Flannel Shirts!
Been buying these for my husband for several years now! So glad they added a new plaid color! Some are 5 years old and still look great...no fading! Great quality!

Rated 4 out of 5 by FloridaBoy411 Material Too Light
I was expecting a heavier weight flannel in this shirt.....I live in Florida however when the temps get in the 40's and 50's in the winter I much prefer to wear a heavy shirt over my normal clothes when I'm outside..... this shirt won't cut it.....AND it has a funky button down collar.....I guess I didn't read enough reviews when I ordered it. However, I love the quality and fit, so I will be sending it back for a heavier weight material.

My husband loves these shirts but I had to quit buying them for him because they don't have two chest pockets. With his pace-maker he keeps glasses, and pens in one pocket and his phone in the other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Thorsgood Great fit, handsome looking shirt
I am 6' 1" with an athletic build and this shirt fitted better than previous LL Bean flannel shirts, which are all good but this one is a better overall fit. This new color Ancient MacMillian is a nice addition and have already received several compliments on it. A home run for LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beleven Men's Scotch Plaid Flannel Shirt
Fall 2015 catalog, page 5. The ad advertises Portuguese Flannel shirts. I purchased a Grey Stewart, large, regular, slightly fitted, Scotch Plaid Flannel shirt at a LL Bean retail store. The shirt's tag said "made in El Salvador." Doesn't this seem strange?
Portuguese - El Salvador. I'll bet they say the material is made in Portugal, then shipped to El Salvador for manufacture, then shipped to the U.S. for sale. I wonder.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunbeltGirl Beautiful color, perfect fit, best material ever!
I bought this for my brother as a gift and it's absolutely beautiful.
I love the Prince Edward red color flannel.
It's soft and the colors are vibrant and rich.
Can't wait to see how he likes it!
