Rated 5 out of 5 by Mariascha440 Winter Comfort
Since I only buy Bean's Pima Cotton Shirts, this Top was a stretch for me (no pun intended). This Bean Tee is very comfortable, warm and cozy, washes well, comes out smooth, looking like new.
I know the Description says "relaxed fit", however, I bought it from the Catalog which says "slightly shaped sides". It is very trim looking on me. I bought an extra small. Fits very well. Only negative is the color. I bought the "Orange Spice" which looks much darker in the Catalog. It reminds me of Tomato Soup after you add a little Milk.
I am still giving it 5 stars, since I feel it is a quality garment. I find with the Orange Spice Color I have to coordinate it with Black Jeans.
I also have a pair of Winter White Pants and the Orange Spice Color top works with it. My medium brown cords don't work with this color, maybe some really dark, dark brown pants would.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KCSM Finally, found a good quality t-shirt
It amazes me that it took me months and months to replace my old, frayed t-shirts. No one makes good quality cotton anymore -- except LLBean! This t-shirt has a great weight -- soft, but not too thick. It didn't shrink in the wash. It didn't shrink in the dryer. And it fits just right -- not too loose, but not crazy-tight like all of the other t-shirts sold everywhere else. After all of these years, I'm back to shopping at LLBean. They still make great quality. Love the color choices, too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Horizons28 shrinks after washing
I wanted to like this shirt. The colors and material, the softness and weight, all seemed perfect. I was really pleased at the longer sleeve length, which I really need. But after washing (following the laundering instructions) the shirt shrunk noticeably. I'm keeping it for knocking about the house, but I won't be ordering more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jude12 very nice
Very nice product. You can always expect great products from LL Bean. I have had Bean's Tees in the past and they have held up well for many years. The material is soft and the fit is perfect.

I really love the feel of these shirts but they SHRINK. I compared the before & after of these shirts (I have bought a few) & the shrinkage is substantial. The sleeves of an XL shrank 2 inches. The length shrank 2.25 to 2.5 inches. Width of the arms approx 1 inch. The width of the chest/ torso 1.5 inches. The un-washed & un-shrunk shirt is too big so I wanted & anticipated a little shrinkage. That said the arms lengths & the body lengths were a little too short after washing. If this came in a tall version that would be perfect. I still like these shirts. Maybe cold washing & hang drying with stretching in between will be the answer going forward.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Crunchygal Disappointed
I was very disappointed when I received this shirt. Not at all like previous long sleeve tees I've ordered in the past made from substantial cotton material with a nice relaxed fit. The material in this shirt is very thin and it is too long and clingy. Will be returning it.

I've been buying LLBean clothes for years. I expect quality craftmanship from what I purchase. This shirt is a big disappointment. I washed it in cold water, dried it on low heat. It shrank up and out....the sleeves also shrank to a much shorter length. Please LLBean, keep your good reputation and improve these shirts.

Rated 4 out of 5 Only with a warning...
I bought this shirt for the color, oatmeal heather. The ribbed neck is a little sportier than I'd hoped, but I do like the color, so - keep it. I always wash something lightly before wearing.
IT SHRANK! Cold water, with other like-colored things that did not shrink one bit, but it's now noticeably smaller.
Upshot, good thing for you, is that it seemed a bit sloppy anyway, so it's OK as long as it doesn't shrink any more.
I don't think anything I've bought from you ever did this before, and I've been a customer for 30 years!

Rated 4 out of 5 by wrenbird Nice shirt, inconsistent sizing
I really like these shirts. They are a staple in my wardrobe, as I do not like "blingy" clothing. I have several colors purchased over a few years. I must say the sizing is not consistent across colors. I have some that are long enough in length and sleeves but some are a bit skimpy at waist and sleeve - all the same ordered size- XL. I have tried going up to a 1X but have found them to be just boxy, not any longer. The weight of the shirt is nice too, not paper thin.
For reference, I am 5' 6" with a curvy build and busty, usually a size 14 -16. I like my shirts roomy so I order XL. Wish they made these in tall, as shirts that are a little longer are nice to wear with jeans.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BikinVA Good shirt but inconsistent sizing
These shirts are comfortable and a nice length, but I bought 2 of the same item, same size, just different colors -- the sleeves on one shirt are 3/4 inch longer than the other shirt. So one is going back. Otherwise, good mid-weight material, will be good for winter layering. Hemmed sleeve looks a little dressier than a plain t-shirt.
