Rated 3 out of 5 by tutes great fabric weight
LLbean has great quality in their fabrics. Why is it with such great quality there is so much shrinkage? What ever happened to preshrinking material? You get a shirt that you love because no one else sells great quality and colors .In the beginning after receiving the shirt the length of sleeves and body are great. After a few washings you loose two inches all over. I like longer sleeves , not ones that sit above my wrist.
.The overall fit is true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PacificCoastHiker Good quality and stylish long sleeve cotton top
I like the cut of this top, roomy but not baggy, and plenty long enough to tuck in.
No sewn in label that can cause skin irritation.
The neck is well designed and does not stretch out of shape.
The stitching on the two I bought appears to be well done, no obvious flaws at all.
I really like this top and will likely add more colors to the two I already bought.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShanghaiRed Sizing & Colors Could Be Better
I own several of Beans long sleeve crewneck tee shirts that I have purchased over the past several years and I love them. I only gave the shirt three stars because the sizing and colors available in the past two years have fallen below Bean's usual superior standards.
Other reviewers have complained that their tee shirts have shrunk. I wish I had that experience as the last few of these tees I have bought in my "usual size" have been way too big. Up until the past year I have always worn a misses XL in Beans tee shirts. I am 5'6 and weigh about 130 pounds. I have been this height and weight for over thirty years so it's not me. The current XL has sleeves that hang below my fingers and the shirt body is so long that I could wear it as a dress if I belted it!
Bean is great about exchanges so the XLs were exchanged for Ls, but even those were a little too big. I measured a new XL Beans Tee against a new and unwashed XL I had purchased over a year before and the newer XL was giant in comparison. It seems that Bean may be increasing their sizing measurements. Whatever the reason behind this issue which I have experienced with all of the tee shirts I have purchased in the last year, it is very frustrating.
Where are all of the good colors? I do not like any shade with "heather" in the title. They tend to all look washed out and dull. How about a nice soft pink or yellow? It would be great if the Beans Tees (in both long and short sleeve) were available in the same colors as the Pima Tees.
If the sizing issues were managed and better colors were offered, I would gladly give this item FIVE SOLID STARS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Alice4447 One is not enough
This is the second one I bought in this color (blue heather). The first one fit so well, and was so soft and cuddly, and the color so lovely, I knew I had to have two, in case something happened to the first. Certainly one of the best items I ever bought from L.L.Bean, and that's saying a lot.

Very disappointed in the level of shrinkage for this shirt. Probably shrunk 2 sizes after the first wash. Will be returning for a refund.

Rated 1 out of 5 by randijill2 Terrible Shrinkage
I was very happy with this shirt until I washed and dried it. It must have shrunk 2 sizes and no longer fits me. Very disappointed in the quality and will be returning.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Moo2 Sleeves are too Short
It's a nice top, slightly fitted. It fit nicely. But oddly enough this is the first time i've received a shirt where the sleeves are too short! I ordered the size xs. If I were to go to a size S with the longer sleeves, it would be a size 6-8 which would be too large for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hikeknitmommy Comfortable and warm
I bought one of these shirts for layering. It's perfect. It's warm for a cotton shirt and a thick fabric. The sleeves are long enough - often a problem with Bean's shirts. I just wish they made it in more colors!

Rated 4 out of 5 by crookedtoes comfy shirt
the shirt (bought three in black, shade blue and bright plum) is comfy/soft but I hate that when I bend over or raise my hands above, you can see my belly button. I wish they would make the shirt a bit longer. I am 5'3" and 190 lbs and always am looking for a shirt that gives coverage to middle section no matter the activity. The only other thing is bright plum is not as bright as pictured on website. It is still a pretty color but not as bright.
I have ordered from ll-bean for years and they always make top notch clothing/slippers and esp coats. Please make your shirts just a tad longer to cover below waist and I will order all my shirts from you~

Rated 5 out of 5 by DanaM Feels great
Love these shirts. Have one in every color. Order a medium and I'm 5'9 130 and it fits perfect with a little room. Sleeves are great length. I do believe they wrinkle easy and I don't dry them in the dryer. I hang dry them and no shrinkage yet.
