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.

I have three of this type of shirt, each of different color. In fact, I am wearing one right now. It is the best flannel shirt I have ever worn. Retains it's size and color after repeated washings.The only reason I don't have more is that they sold out of the other colors in my size. Don't waste your money in local big box stores on flannel shirts that shrink two sizes, buy these. And No, I don't work for Bean or the supplier, just retired and comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by stickchick What happened to quality?
I was going to throw out my husband's old LL Bean flannel shirt because it had a hole in the arm. Then I picked it up, and it was thick gorgeous flannel. No way was I going to throw it out! I patched it and ordered two more from them for the holidays! One for me, and one for him. Matching. They are nowhere near the quality of the one I patched. 1/3 of the thickness, and they are pilling already. What is up with that? If you want uber thick flannel, this is NOT it. :( Their sizing is still great though. The old LLBean shirt was made in El Salvador. #0MT07 I guess we'll be keeping that one forever....and sending these back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JimToo Unexpected comfort
I have never owned an LL Bean flannel shirt before and bought this item on a whim because it was offered in our family's tartan pattern. I had no expectations for the shirt other than typical LL Bean quality, but the comfort of the shirt's material took me totally by surprise. It is very soft and so, so comfortable. The weight of the cloth is perfect too. It has been my favorite shirt during the cold winter months.

I was more than satisfied with this clean, soft, well pressed, beautiful colors, black watch flannel shirt.
In all truthfulness, the terrific shirt was better in real life to the touch and wear than the picture. As you know, there are no ll bean stores in California, so I have to choose by the pictures until I buy one or travel to buy one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stonewall35 Top Notch Flannel All the Way!
I have this in the Prince Charles of Edward color, and the color is beautiful: very rich and deep. Since people tend to forget to put their height and weight or what size they purchased, let me save someone a possible return. I'm 5'9" and 240 lbs, and the XL is right on. I will say, however, that compared to the Freeport Flannels I own, this one seems to accentuate the middle area for those of us with ?guts? when tucked in to some khaki work slacks, but an XXL would be far too large for me. My best bet is to drop 5-10 pounds if I want to tuck it in and wear it to work. I don?t have that issue with the Freeport Flannels, but this truly is a fine shirt. Oh, and if you follow the washing instructions, you'll get no shrinking.(At least that's been my experience so far with all LL Bean flannels I own.)
You can definitely tell that these are dyed yarns woven into a pattern as opposed to a print on the fabric. After some washing and drying I?m very impressed with the vivid colors and durability of the material. I come home and put this on nearly every day after work. I've even worn this one to bed it?s so comfortable! I expect many years of wear from the Scotch Plaid flannel shirt. I teach at a little college and this is at home in the classroom tucked in or on a camping trip. Keep this color in stock!

I bought this shirt in the Grey Stewart pattern. The colors are very good, the fit is excellent, and the shirt needs hardly any ironing after washing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JRVA Great shirt
I am 6 ft and 195lbs. The size medium fits well (I like things more fitted). I have owned a few of these shirts over the past few years. They do shrink a bit over time but not drastic enough to become too small. Very warm and also provides enough room to wear a base layer underneath. I wear mine un tucked and they look great. I like the button collar to keep it looking crisp wash after wash. These shirts are my essentials for fall and winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeanAlabamaUser Quality Material
I have flannel shirts from other stores. This was my first from LL Bean. The quality and look is much nicer. It is not too thick that one can not wear it inside. I wear either medium or large in shirts typically. I chose medium and it fits great. I typically wear a size 40 jacket if that is any indication.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MartB best plaid shirt
Portuguese flannel is the best flannel I've felt/worn. Grey Stewart is an awesome plaid design. I hope it won't be discontinued upon sell-out. It's my favorite shirt (feel and look).
BTW, I'm 5' 10" with a 40 chest. I wear a medium.
