Rated 1 out of 5 by Lifeisgrand TOO SHORT
I have many regular LLBean turtlenecks that I love. This was my first mock turtleneck. The fabric is soft and the color is nice. But the shirt is too short, sleeves too tight in the armpits, and the collar just kind of hangs, not at all what I expected. I had put it away to wear on a special occasion, having been satisfied with the regular turtlenecks - so didn't try on when received. Disappointed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by casualanne stand up neck tees not good
I have at least 10 years of Bean's Pima standup neck turtlenecks - and I LOVE them all. The whole stack is wonderful. BUT for the last 3 years, I haven't bought any! I notice that other reviewers agree with me. The fabric is still really nice - BUT they are too small and short in the length of the body and sleeves. They won't stay tucked in. And - even worse - the neck is more of a mock than the old stand up. I have measured - the current stand up neck is at least two inches shorter than all of the old ones and it droops down and looks loose. What you are now selling should be called a mock neck because it sure isn't the old, very dressy (and lovely) stand up neck. I have complained to your telephone people for at least three years. PLEASE go back to the old stand up neck that was so dressy!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Smartgirl65 Pima Cotton Pima Stand up Neck Changed
I have a closet full of LL Bean shirts, mostly pima. The fabric is soft, the shirts wash well and the colors are great. This is my favorite fabric...no other company has anything that even comes close this fabric. However, this particular shirt has changed. The stand up part is short and bigger and therefore falls down and looks strange. Lucky for me I have some of the older ones and they are holding up well. I hope LLBean will go back to the older style in the neck as I would love to buy many more. Sad when you find something and then they change it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DLighted Love LLBean pima tees!
LLBean pima tees are top notch! Soft, pill-free, rich colors, stay-in-shape wash after wash...what more could you want? And very reasonably priced for this superior quality. I have a variety of the pima styles. I personally prefer this neckline over a turtleneck. Never feel choked. I did have it monogrammed for a personal touch. Love that! Ordering another one in classic black. Sure to be a go-to shirt under many of my cardigan sweaters. (Mostly from LLBean also!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by elise64 So pretty and comfortable
I tried a pima cotton tee, long sleeve stand up neck last winter for the first time here at LLBean. It was clearly my favorite tee of any I've had before. I am hooked on pima tees. I love the soft feel of these tees, and the quality is clearly excellent. In the winter, I feel comfortable with something keeping my neck warm, and the stand up neck fits the bill, alone or for layering. The quality of the pima cotton can be dressed up or dressed down. I love the richness of this rich violet stand up tee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rivergal47 Very Comfortable
I am pleased with the comfort of this top, both in the material and the type of turtleneck styling.

Rated 4 out of 5 by biobeanie nice material, pretty color
The construction of the shirt is really nice. The stand up collar is great and the color is rich. The material is soft and substantial. My only complaint is that it is so short. If you wear low pants you are going to show your assets if you move much at all. I am only going to be wearing this as a layer with something over it. I would not wear it alone since it is so short.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShopperJan1 Sorry they haven't returned the stand up neck
These were always my favorite until they shortened the neck. Was so hoping this season they would go back to the original collar, but no luck, so I can't buy any. It's a good thing the old ones wear so well!

Rated 4 out of 5 by idecorate Stand up neck doesn't
Like another reviewer, I agree that the stand up mock neck no longer stands up as it once did. It droops down in the front. I have been ordering these for years. I compared to one that is very old that I wear just around the house, and it still stands up! What happened, LL Bean??? I ordered two, and don't feel like returning, but I am not happy with the 'droop' in the look. Will not be reordering more. (and no, my neck did not shrink)

Rated 4 out of 5 by MidwestHen Nice but shrinks!
I am 5'3" and weigh about 125lbs. .
Pros: Love the wonderfully soft fabric. Fabric is kind of lightweight so those who are cold all the time (not me) may like a sweater or something to go over this. Neck is not constricting at all (not a fan of turtlenecks). Fabric even a little dressy.
Cons: some noticeable shrinkage, mostly in length.
I purchased a Regular Large and took measurements right out of the package and then again after a regular wash / tumble dry: Shoulder to hemline was 24 7/8" and shrank to 23", Girth (laying flat) 21.5 to 20.5", Sleeve (armpit to hem of sleeve) 18.5 down to 17.5 and shoulder seam (across top of shoulder) had no change at 4.5". Cannot say if a cold water wash and hang dry method would prevent shrinking; I just knew I did not want anything that needed special attention. I'm pleased with the fit, but I sized up when ordering in anticipation of it shrinking, knowing it would eventually just get tossed in a warm water wash and then the dryer. Overall nice shirt.
