Rated 5 out of 5 by DOTHOM Great shirt
The Allagash Houndstooth Shirt is well-madeshirt. It is soft and roomy. Because it's 100% polyester you don't even have to iron it! I have two and wear them to work with chinos when the high temperature drops below 50.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cynderg Liked it a lot. Bought the other two colors.
I used my wife's account to buy this shirt. Very pleased with both the quality and fit. It's very comfortable and looks well either tucked in or open and worn as an over shirt. I'm fairly athletic and have always been caught up in the XL and XXL size wars. XL is perfect and fits well even with a medium weight thermal shirt underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perevinco Super comfy
This shirt is better than its description. Super soft and comfortable. Years ago I had a houndstooth check shirt from LLBean; this one is (or seems, after all these years) softer and thicker. More genuine flannel-like. Colors are rich (I have the red) and have not faded a bit. I will probably get another in a different color. It's a keeper.

Loved the look in the catalog, loved it more when it arrived. Fit was good, a little big, but still very comfy. I like it that way. Can layer f I need to. Like the feel, soft and warm. Would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TMIII get two
You might want to get two of these as they are so comfortable you wont want to wear any other shirt. You will need two, one to wear while the other is in the laundry.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ElectricGenie Good but very big
This shirt is well made of high-quality fabric. But it is HUGE. I am 5'10" and I weigh 165 lbs. The medium fit my chest (41") and arms, but I have very long arms (34.5"). The rest of the shirt was ridiculous, like a tent. No offense meant, but it would nicely fit a man who was significantly overweight. I have sadly concluded that LL Bean is not interested in selling clothing to men who are trim and fit. I spent $35 to have this shirt tailored so it would fit me. I won't be doing that again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gkMOoutdoors Allagash still a winner
My old Allagash shirt finally wore out after more than 20 years of fairly rough outdoor use. I was glad to see L.L.Bean still carries them and ordered a new one which I've been wearing this autumn as the weather cools. I ordered my normal shirt size and it fits fine. The fabric feels like cotton flannel, but dries faster, and is warm like wool, but without the itch. The construction of this new shirt is high quality, and I have no doubt it will be as durable as my first one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by swick loved it, but sleeves much too long
It hurt me to return this shirt. Really. I loved the fabric--thin enough to wear indoors during winter, thick enough to wear outdoors as part of a layer system. I loved the traditional fit through the shoulders and torso. The neck was spot-on. The chest pockets are great. The cayenne color was just what I wanted.
Alas, the sleeves came down almost to my knuckles--and I don't have short arms. I bought a size L and that usually fits nicely--never had a sleeve problem before with a Bean shirt. Regretfully, I packed it up and sent it back for a refund. Bean--if you can shorten the sleeves so that they fit a normal person, I'll buy this shirt again in a heartbeat.

Bought this for my husband. He usually wears a tall in LL Bean shirts but this shirt is a bit oversized. Fits him well in the XL regular length. The Cayenne is a nice red color. Doesn't wrinkle and is a comfortable weight.

Looks nothing like the photos. Very disappointed. I didn't even take the shirts out of the packaging.
