Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveYourPockets Pima Cotton - Well worth the money
This is exactly as described in catalog and on-line: silky inside & out. I prefer 100% Pima to the shirts with spandex in collar & cuffs, especially turtlenecks. Your pima cotton turtleneck holds up in laundry for years and years. I have some that I have worn for more than 4 years. The fit has not changed.

Rated 3 out of 5 by georgiabyte Recommended, but with reservations
This turtleneck is gorgeous, and when I put it on I feel like a million bucks! The fabric is wonderful, surpassed only by the fantastic selection of vivid colors!
HOWEVER, I do not, if I can help it, buy this turtleneck. The major drawback is that you do not offer cuffed sleeves. Why, oh why???
I do understand that you are going for a dressier look, but
1. Either offer it in TWO sleeve choices, cuffed or non, OR
2. Offer these wonderful colors in the Bean Turtleneck!
When was the last time I could buy a good RED?? Only in this Pima turtleneck! But I hate the non-cuffed sleeves!
LL Bean needs color education!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rarebear Soft and comfortable Love this shirt
Fabulous and soft. Love this shirt. My only negative comment would be that I would like to possibly see the sleeves cuffed. I ordered one and then got another three. The sleeve on the extra large was too long but I needed to the width in the hips so I may have to have the sleeves taken up if they do not shrink. So far I like the fact that the turtle neck is not tight and does not choke. I am 172 pounds , 5' 4" and bought an extra large. I take a 14-16 in their pants and a large in the corduroy lined big shirt.
Love these shirts. I will order Supima cotton in other shirts if available. Love LL Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Henrydoodle Great wardrobe staple if...
Beautiful fabric with just enough sheen. Washes and dries perfectly - no shrinkage. They wear like iron - I've had many of them for many years. It is disappointing that there are not as many colors in plus sizes of this turtleneck as well as the equally terrific Pima crew neck T. Especially no cream or ivory which is a useful basic!

Rated 5 out of 5 by GaelicRose Love this turtleneck!
I've been wearing these turtlenecks at least several days a week for years! I especially like that they are a bit shorter than other turtlenecks. This allows me to wear them underneath jackets without tucking them in. (I'm 5' 4", 102 lbs and the XS is about 21" long on me.) I'm SO happy you are still making them. (I checked the product number on the garment tag.) I'll be ordering more soon and hope they fit the same as the ones I have!

Rated 2 out of 5 by classicclothesbuyer What has happened to LL Bean's quality control??
I've been ordering from LLBean for years, but may have to stop entirely. I've given up on the regular cotton mock turtlenecks after years of wearing them. First the sizes became unpredictable, then they shrank drastically even with delicate cold washing and not putting them in the dryer. Last year the Pima Turtlenecks were silky feeling and nicely sized, so I ordered them again this year--but they aren't the same. The silkiness is gone, the sleeves are tight and short and the fabric feels heavy.
I used to order the Bayside slacks, but have stopped because of problems with fit, length, and quality,
I now read the reviews before i order anything from LL
Bean and usually don't order because of comments about inconsistent sizing and most of all poor quality.
I'm sorry to see this happening to such an old and previously reliable company.

Rated 4 out of 5 by reviewer1112 Almost perfect...
I have purchased many of these shirts and the quality is the best around. The fabric is so soft. However, the length is too short and the shirt does not stayed tucked in to pants or skirts. If the shirt is left untucked and I raise my arms and am not wearing sit-at-the-waist pants, I have to be careful not to expose my bare midriff. I'm not requesting a tunic style top, but another 1-2 inches in length would be more practical. The color selection this season does not pair well with my warm skin tone. LL Bean, when you come out with new colors each season, please choose a color palette that offers both warm and cool colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SunbeltGirl Comfortable and perfect fit!
I bought this in white for this winter.
It's very soft and the neck is not too tight. That is a biggy for me.
I can't wait until it gets cold enough to wear it!

I ordered this shirt in navy, but although the blue is very nice, it is not a true navy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NatureHugger High Quality, Great Fit, Love It!
I love this turtleneck! I'm slender, 5'7" 140 pounds, and the size SMALL fits perfectly. The material is high quality and feels wonderful against my skin. The neck is neither too tight nor too loose, and the arms are long enough. Perfect. The torso length is good, too. This product washes well. I usually hang my cotton turtlenecks rather than put them in the dryer, but sometimes, if I'm in a hurry, I will put them in the dryer. Either way, they stay like new. Please, LLBean, keep this wonderful product as is!
