Rated 5 out of 5 by SanFranTourist Quality and confort - excellent
My size was out recently and after purchasing two about 6 months ago, I became a fan of this t-shirt. Absolutely 5 star.
It was worth the wait.

Rated 4 out of 5 by oldestcustomer recent sizing issues?
These have long been and continue with various changes over the years to be excellent t-shirts. But recently I have been noticing peculiar sizing anomalies -- I'm 6'2" about 195, old but in pretty good condition, and I have noticed these shirts in the XL size I have always ordered getting just huge and tent-like -- sometimes, it seems, after an hour or so of wear on a hot day. Maybe the sizes or the cut have been adjusted up, maybe the fabric is thinner and therefore more stretchy, maybe the fabric "relaxes" as it gets warm and humid. I have lots of older LLBean t-shirts for which this is not a problem. I'm puzzled.

These tshirts perform as advertised. I cant tell you how many t's i have trashed because of shrinkage and stains. Just an excellent value, because they last and last.

Rated 1 out of 5 by ZTex Great T-Shirt Ruined by Lyrca in Neck Seam
I loved this 100% all cotton men's T-shirt with pocket and recently re-ordered two more of these items.
The prior version of this product was actually 100% cotton as advertised but the new version has a Lycra neck seam which creates an uncomfortable and continuous "squeeze" feeling around my neck. My neck is normal size for an X-Large T-shirt and I simply don't like tight clothing around my neck.
No doubt someone thought the 100% cotton loose neck seam could be "clean up" in appearance but they totally forgot about comfort and functionality. I tried wearing the new design with Lycra for a few month but just returned the order as I no longer will wear them. Sadly, I must now find another vendor who sells a similar product without the Lycra neck seam.
Moral to the story: change is not always for the better.

Am ordering the fifth or sixth short sleeve tee with pocket for my husband. He likes to have a pocket for his sunglasses or mechanical pencil and a pocketed tee is rare. But more importantly is how these shirts look and wear; even after many washings, they stay fresh and new looking, color true, and without pilling. Thanks for always having new colors to choose from. These, along with the wrinkle free sport and dress shirts are always a Best Buy in this house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PersonalStyle Pocket is essential and I don't want heather
When you are set in your ways, you have to have an LLBean in your life. We had far too many "bucket necks" that stretched out horribly with previous brands. This brand provides lasting good looks and is well worth the price. ( Written by wife of fifty years for her favorite curmudgeon.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by ChevyPanel52 Not what they used to be ...
These are still good tee-shirts, but I honestly must say they're not what they used to be, and I have had dozens of LL's Carefree Unshrinkable Tee's over the years. #1 : They have become much thinner: I actually weighed the new one I got recently and compared to an older one that had been washed dozens of times ... 236 grams for the 2016 version, 295 grams for the older, well-washed one. They feel flimsy and don't offer much warmth. #2 - after a couple of washes, the neck line gets all bagged out and misshapen. #3 - the pockets are too small to securely hold a pair of reading glasses or an iPod Touch. Plus the price has skyrocketed. I've switched to the Seacoast Knee Tee's and hope they don't get discontinued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LAINYY626 Only recommend the classic tee,s
I really hate to see that you have so few classic tee,s. The newer shirts you have don't give that easily and they get those little pills, or balls on them after a few washings. I had bought my husband two in the past and he did not like them at all. He said they were not comfortable. The color selection was great a few years ago, now very limited in the classic solid. Please bring back the Origional Classic tee,s. They were awesome.

Rated 1 out of 5 by harasbduck Not as it used to be.....
This t-shirt was a favorite work t-shirt of both my husband and myself for many, many years. However, we recently bought some new ones and were dismayed to discover that whatever has been done to the t-shirt to make it "carefree" and "unshrinkable" has also made the t-shirt less absorbent and less breathable. Sweat gets trapped inside the shirt and does not wick off or get absorbed. As a result, after working up a sweat and then cooling down, we get quite cold, and after working for a while both we and the shirt begin to smell. Unpleasant, to say the least, and not what we had experienced with this shirt before. We will not buy this shirt again, and we are trying out some other brands to see if we can find a replacement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CTSully Unshrinkable - But faded
I have owned this shirt now for 2 years. It is one of my favorite t shirts.
As advertised this shirt will not shrink - which is important to me as finding the right fit for me is tough. I am 6'5" 240 lbs with a 36" waist. The XL Tall slim and slightly fitted are perfect for me and i have tried a lot of other shirts and fits. The quality of the fabric is excellent as well and i have had no issues with loose threads or tears.
I do have two issues however:
The shirt has faded slightly which goes against the advertising. I would estimate that i have washed this shirt with like colors approximately 50 times. Quite honestly though i enjoy the "patina" that has ensued.
The shirt collar has stretched and lost elasticity. This is the reason for the 4/5 rating. This stretching has made the collar look sloppy. It is a shame as the rest of the shirt is holding up fine and shows no signs of stretch.
Overall an excellent shirt. I would recommend this shirt and i would buy it again as i have not found a better fit.
