Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyinSimiValley Bean's Tee, 3/4 sleeve
I ordered 4 Tees. I read previous reviews and they stated that these Tees shrunk at least one size. Therefore, I ordered a size larger (medium). It fit a little big. I washed in warm water and put in drawer for 10 minutes. After that, the shirt fit a size smaller, perfect. They really shrink at least one size. I'm glad I ordered a size larger. I like the Tees, the colors and the feel. I may order two more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ArtGirl999 Summer Tee with comfortable 3/4 sleeves
Love this soft cotton Tee... and am wearing it as I write!
It is slightly fitted.... and even as a grandma... missing the figure
that I had when I was much younger, the medium fits me fine.
In midday summer heat maybe the sleeves would be too hot, but on a summer night going out for a bit this is fine.
My arms are not what they used to be and when i go out to a restaurant I prefer to have my upper arms covered... this shirt is perfect!

Rated 3 out of 5 by EbateShopper too long
The tee I recently purchased is two inches longer than the others I have bought even after washing it in hot water and drying it on high heat. I don't like the longer length. I will continue buying from LLBean even though there is so much inconsistency. The quality of the fabric is much better than I can get in local retail stores.

Rated 3 out of 5 by oaklandgal Looks looks older than it is
I bought this in blue last fall but it looks several years old now. Part of that is the heathered color treatment but mostly it's that the fabric quality just didn't hold up. It is pilling on the sleeve & shirt body wherever my arm rubs / touches my torso. It has also shrunk quite a bit. It used to be one of my favorite shirts, now I only wear it as an under layer. Sad.
The fabric does have a nice soft feel tho.

Rated 2 out of 5 by GailGC Poor quality
I have no fewer than 10 of the 244335 3/4 sleeve T shirts, and up until this one, delivered yesterday, I have praised the quality. This one is noticeably thinner than the ones I have from a year ago. I used to buy Chico's 3/4 sleeve T's, but stopped because they went in the same direction. I have both Chico's and Bean's T's from years ago that continue to look better and perform better than the ones I have recently bought. I don't know if I will purchase any more from you. If I am going to get a cheap T shirt, I will just go to Penney's and replace them more often. I can get three of their cheap shirts for what one of yours cost.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TrumbullMom My Go-To Shirt
I love these shirts - I have bought multiples in different colors and would wear them all the time if more colors were available. They are comfortable, wash well, and not too warm I the summertime as I love the 3/4 sleeves to cover my flabby arms. Please offer more stock in the colors that are sold out on-line and more colors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by aronenaj sleeves are too long
great fit & very comfortable but would prefer the short sleeves version -- that version is no longer available in my size at LL Bean so I am looking for a short-sleeved V-neck from other vendors

Rated 4 out of 5 by GailGC Best value, but...
This shirt does shrink. I measured a new one against one I have washed a couple of times and it shrank a full inch. I DID wash in cold water only and DID take it from the dryer before it was fully dry. Still I have continued to purchase this shirt, mostly white and black because I don't really like these heather shades. It remains a great value for a V-neck T-shirt, better than Chico's all day long, which used to be my pick. I will continue to buy this shirt when they add better colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VeggieBeaner It's not how you wash, it's how you dry...
I love this shirt. I ordered three of them to wear under my scrub tops for work. It's always a little chilly in the hospital so I like to wear a shirt with a three-quarter length sleeves to keep my arms warm. The material is very soft and feels lovely against my skin. The length is perfect for me; it hits me just below my waist...and I'm long waisted. As for shrinkage...wash in cold water and DRY it on a cool setting till it's almost dry, then hang it up to complete the drying process. No-to-minimal shrinkage. If you do this for all your clothes you'll maintain them in pristine condition. Yes, it takes a little longer and is a process, but having nice clothes is worth it. Overall, this is a great shirt and I will buy again in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LindaLJ Shrunk!
I've always loved LLBean 3/4 sleeve T-shirts and ordered 2. So disappointed, they shrunk the first time I washed them. They are a bit shorter to start with from previous years. I washed in cold water just as instructed. LLBean needs to preshrink these shirts!
