Rated 4 out of 5áby CaveatTalonWager What a gorgeous shirt!
I ordered this shirt in Clear Emerald and Turquoise and the color is gorgeous! I ordered my normal size and it fits like someone took my measurements and made the shirt just for me (that doesn't happen every day!). The shirt has a lovely contour that flatters people like me who have a small waist in relation to everything else.
The fabric is thinner than I expected, but is still very nice. I would not say that this shirt is "soft" but rather has more of a "gritty" texture to it, but that doesn't bother me. I am hoping that it doesn't shrink as it will then become too small. It can be difficult to determine a size when shrinkage can be an issue. I've not washed it yet, so the verdict is still out on that.
I gave this four stars rather than five because of the way the neck line hangs. Other reviewers reported it as "wrinkling like a piece of bacon" and I would agree, but ti appears that some of the shirts are worse in the regard than others. I order two shirts originally in two different sizes and the one that I kept was not as wrinkly in the neck as the other, but I still took spray starch to it and that did help some. BUT...neither shirt looks the same in the neck as in the picture on the website, so just be aware of that.
I would like to see LLBean fix the way the neck lies on this shirt and then it will be a SIX-STAR garment!

Rated 5 out of 5áby momof4gk Quality shirt!
I'm so pleased with my purchase, it fits true to size. I got a XS, I'm 125 lbs, 5.5. and it was on sale! It fits nicely, not clingy and not boxy. I'm going to order more while on sale.

Rated 3 out of 5áby No2Eagle Returning it
This one doesn't have any sort of peculiar smell and it fits well, but the fabric is a bit coarse so I am returning it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Jojoayo Tip for Petite
This is the second one I buy in a different color. Since I am only 5 feet 1 inch, they were too long. I washed them in cold water and put them in the dryer. They came out streight and just the right length. This could be a solution until they are available in petite size.

Rated 5 out of 5áby rhymes Ready for Spring!
Love the Clear Emerald/Dark Turquoise stripe. It made me happy just to try on something that says, "Spring is coming!" This quarter-zip is a great wardrobe staple ... soft, comfortable, just right with an LL Bean vest when it's still too chilly to wear solo. I have the red/white stripe and other colors from previous years. They are easy care and the colors stay true. My oldest one is relegated to being worn for yard work because it's a little too well worn ... I've had it for years and can't make myself give it up. Thanks for a great shirt, LL Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Jojoayo Just perfect
I bought this sweater in Emerald color at the LL Bean store in October and I had so many compliments since, I just ordered the same in navy.
I usually ware Large in other companies, but this time the Medium is perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5áby PB64 fit is good, like the style...But
I do like this top but I found it disappointing regarding the strong smell of the garment, it smells like vinegar!! Hopefully the smell will disappear after a wash, otherwise I will have to return it.

Rated 3 out of 5áby kmkminnetonka Nice, but.................
Wish I could say I love, love, love it, but...........the neck has been twisted since the first time I washed it. I continue to wear, but wish it looked like the pictures and not like a piece of bacon! Maybe a defect???

Rated 5 out of 5áby George79 Disappointed
In the past I ordered three of these shirts and I have loved them. I ordered 2x and they fit great. I wanted a new color but find that they don't come in 2x. Very disappointed that I can't get another one in my size. My question is why not larger sizes made?

Rated 5 out of 5áby Butterdog8 Perfect fit
This item fits perfectly and just the right length. The color is bright and cheery, it is light and not cumbersome. It will be great for cool days and evenings and will look fantastic with white shorts or slacks.
