Rated 5 out of 5áby OCGirl Cute, High Quality
I absolutely love this shirt. I ordered 2 - (one Petite and one Misses), because I wasn't sure about the size. I like them both. I am 5'5" tall with a short torso, and the Petite hits me at mid-hip. The Misses fits me more like a tunic, but it still looks very cute. The fabric is substantial, more like a very light sweater than a t-shirt. I will most likely order more of these in the future.

Rated 4 out of 5áby DepMode Runs small
I ordered the petite small which always fits me well. I am 5'2" and 125 lbs. but this shirt was tight and clingy in all the wrong places. I would have just returned it but I was so in love with the color (nautical orange) that I couldn't give up on the idea of having this shirt and I decided to give the petite medium a try. That fit much better and I'm very happy with the shirt. In fact every time I've worn it I've gotten complements about how the color really suits me.

Rated 2 out of 5áby No2Eagle Returning it
I read in one review that the shirt had a peculiar odor and in another that the fabric was not soft. Many other reviews were good, so I ordered the shirt. Unfortunately the one I got was pretty scratchy and has an odd smell to it. I thought about washing the shirt to see whether this problem is caused by some sort of sizing, but I am not sure I can return the shirt if I wash it. So, unfortunately - it's going back.

Rated 4 out of 5áby MDshoppertoo Nice top
This is a nice-looking top and fits well (I'm 5'2" and 133#). I have a M in one color and want to order it again in a different color. Only one hesitation: the one I have came out of the dryer with wrinkles--a surprise because this is a medium-weight knit. I used Downy Wrinkle Releaser and it helped but I am still not 100% happy. I'm hoping that washing/drying it a second time will give better results without the second step. If not, it will be returned because I'm not in the mood to iron knits.

Rated 4 out of 5áby TishS Cute top, but be careful - not close to white!
I ordered the navy/cream and the cream/navy versions of this cute sailor shirt to go with the LL Bean perfect fit crop pants in navy. The navy is a true classic navy and goes perfectly with the crop pants in navy. It makes a very cute outfit for spring and summer.
However, the cream is a very distinct yellowish (some would say dirty) cream, it is not white or off-white. Just be warned, because I had hoped to wear these tops with white bottoms and they will not work with white.
The cut and fit of the top is a perfect XL and very flattering on my busty XL frame. The fabric is ribbed and the finish is well done. Very nice top and I hope to buy more of them in other colours. Hopefully some of the colour combinations will have white in them, not cream.

Rated 5 out of 5áby WellDressedGirl The ultimate wardrobe essential!
Each spring I buy myself one classic marinere to get me through the summer. Because they last for years, I've gradually acquired a closet shelf full, from various sources, in various colors. This L.L.Bean version (at roughly a 6th of the price of some I've bought in France!) is a wonderful bargain. I now have 3, two new, one very old. The colors are perfect, the fabric is a soft plush knit, the fit is outstanding. I wear a size 4 and buy small for a slim fit, or medium for more of a tunic look. A wardrobe classic that will take you anywhere (maybe except the red carpet!) and always looks hip.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Rarebooks Not the same shirt
This is not the same shirt that was offered two years ago. The Small size is 2 and a half inches narrower in width than previous Small sizes in this garment. The sleeves are half an inch shorter. The fabric is lighter in weight.

Rated 2 out of 5áby MBJones Poor quality fabric
I have always loved these French sailor shirts. I have 2 in cream/navy, but I just ordered and received the cream/rose and the fabric got a small hole in the front (not on a seam) the first time I wore it. It does not feel as sturdy as my others.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Momham My new favorite!
I ordered the blue striped and cream with blue stripes for myself. I could not be more pleased. Such a nice sturdy knit, almost sweater-like. Over all a nice fit. I will be wearing these year round. Liked them so much, ordered two for my sister---and two more for me.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Run6014 Perfect fit, great for spring
I bought the coral pink shirt because I thought it was unique looking. It is. It fits perfectly. Well made.
