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 1 out of 5 by seaduckies "True" Navy is NOT Navy!
I ordered this for the color -- and so was unpleasantly surprised to see that it is not navy at all, let alone "true" navy. The color is much brighter -- closer to a royal blue. And it is off enough that it does not coordinate with other navy items in my wardrobe.
The cut and feel were good -- I tried to live with it. But I ended up returning it when I realized that I wouldn't wear it because of the color.
Bean should rename this -- call it true blue if you want. I really, really wish it was made in a color that most of us would identify as a real navy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ellenesq Wish you offered this shirt in petites
I returned this shirt only because it is too long for me. The color is lovely. I have a wardrobe of these shirts which I treasure and handle with tlc, dating from the time when your regular size was about 4 inches shorter.
PLEASE offer more colors in petite. I'll buy two of each before they disappear.

Rated 2 out of 5 by longtimepima Significant Changes to the Turtleneck
LL Bean has made significant style and sizing changes to the turtleneck- without changing the model #. Specifically, the new style collar and cuffs are thick and seem to be reinforced with spandex. (Note that pictured old style tutleneck's sleeves have hems not cuffs.) The new style turtleneck has topstitched armholes and sleeves that are 0.75 inch shorter in the size large than in the old style. Also, the new style body is 1.25 inch wider around and 1.25 inch longer than the old style turtleneck. (Please note that I used a brand new, unwashed, size large, old style Pima turtleneck for these comparisons.) Very importantly, the fabric seems different in the new style turtleneck. In fact, the new style turtleneck's fabric content is only labeled 100% cotton. However, the old style turtleneck's fabric content is labeled 100% Supima Cotton. It is also noteworthy that the new style turtleneck is made in Cambodia while the old style is made in Peru. Personally, I find the new style turtleneck to be uncomfortable with its stiffer, heavier collar and too short sleeves. After 20+ years of purchasing LL Bean turtlenecks, I am returning my recent purchases.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DianaO Good Fit - sleeves to short
Item fits great, color is wonderful and feels soft. Only disappointment are the sleeves are a bit short. I wish they were 1-2 inches longer in length. I like my sleeves to hit at wrist or longer.

I love the feel but the length is too short. I always order regular xs but this length is like a petite xs.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PamB SHRINKS!!
I normally wear a petite size, but order these in misses to get a longer length. The fabric is soft and the neck is nice and snug, but these turtlenecks shrink terribly (washed/dried as instructed), to the point where the sleeves come above my wrists. Would hate to think what would happen if I ordered my normal petite size!
Come on LL Bean, you can do better than this. I have several of these now that I hate because they are too short in the length and sleeves - am thinking of returning them all!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Bailey38 Didn't care for the material.
I was expecting more of a cotton feel to the material and it felt more like it had spandex in it making it slightly uncomfortable.
