Rated 5 out of 5 by PeggySue61 Flannel Shirt Buyer
I have purchased this shirt for my husband in the past and he absolutely loves it. This will be a great shirt for Christmas. It is so warm without being too heavy and keeps its shape and color through repeated washings. Will probably get a new one every fall.

Rated 5 out of 5 by teachntravel Great fit!
Finally, a flannel shirt that is cut big enough around and long enough to tuck in! I bought this for my husband who has been happy to wear it and it covers him completely to tuck into his pants and be comfortable in the girth-not tight like so many other large size flannel shirts. I will definitely buy again for him.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mtnblue Flannel is cheap and rough
I am a loyal and long-time LL Bean customer. However, this flannel shirt is not what is advertised. The material feels great out of the bag, but it is rough after a single washing. It feels more like wool than like cotton. The material is also very thin -- not warm at all. The tag near the collar say that the shirt is made in El Salvador. The item number on the tag is 228061 so I'm sure I'm not confusing this with a different shirt.
I have an old LL Bean flannel shirt that is fantastic -- extremely soft, warm, wonderful. That's what this shirt should be. I generally love LL Bean but something has gone wrong here.

The material is heavier than other flannel shirts I have, & more importantly, the sleaves are long enough to allow for shrinkage & still fit well. I have four of them now!

Rated 1 out of 5 by sunset125 after one wash, shrunk too much!!!!
Bought this shirt in a Med Tall and loved the feel and fit of the shirt until it was washed. The directions say it could be washed and dried on low. We followed the directions and the shirt sleeves shrunk at least 2 inches. We are disappointed and will be returning the shirt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by renabug Shirts Christmas gifts..disappointing!
I've always been satisfied with purchases from L.L.Bean...but these shirts were an embarrassment to give as gifts. One went to a family member in New Mexico..was there when received for Christmas and it was all wrinkled...not from package wrinkles, but overall. Looked like something that had been slept in. Since it was a gift, the packaging was gone...he would have returned it, but way too much bother.
The 2nd one was for my husband, and that wasn't any better. Would have hesitated even wearing them in public.

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 5 out of 5 by xskier Very soft and comfortable, a quality item.
I had just received the 'Macrae of Conchra' Scotch Plaid Shirt I ordered for myself and liked the thickness of the flannel so much I ordered another shirt, the 'Wallace' for me and a 'Black Watch' for my son for Christmas. Layer this great flannel shirt over the Bean's
'Interlock' turtleneck and you have some very warm layers for cold winter days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeotheTrumpetPlayer THE Flannel Shirt
A couple of years ago, as I changed out of my captain's uniform after a long, frigid day on Lake Superior, one of my coworkers and I were discussing our various attempts to keep warm without looking homeless. I told my coworker that I loved flannel, but couldn't find anything that A.) had long enough arms and B.) didn't shrink a whole size when placed in the dryer. My coworker looked at me like I was crazy and said: "Have you tried those Scotch Plaid shirts from Bean?" He told me they were great, all he wore in the winter, and that he had one in every color. I ordered 2 and discovered that he was absolutely right. Since then, I have accumulated 2 more, and I wear 3 of them constantly (the color of the 4th shirt was a poor choice). They are soft, comfortable, good looking, and virtually unshrinkable. Try one. You'll see.
