Rated 5 out of 5 by Greeneggs Super soft and comfortable
I love this shirt! It fits perfectly and it is so soft! I am planning to but another one! I am 5'10 and I bought a large to make sure the arms fit. I love it!!

Please make these longer. The length on these and most of your shirts is way to short. Totally out of fashion for today. Besides who wants to bend over and have their back exposed. I would probably buy most a of the colors if they were longer like the cowl neck which that's exactly what I did. The neckline is a little too wide also and shows bra straps. I don't wear my quarter zips anymore which I've had for years because they look weird being so short.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lucerne12345 Stunning quality, Easy to wear, Wash & wear
The colors are deep and rich, but the combinations did not work for my fair skin tone. This shirt is easy to wear and super high quality knit. I wanted to buy every color, because it fit so nicely. It shrinks up a little bit in the wash, but it truly is wash and wear, which makes it super! The misses sz L is 1" shorter and has 1/2" shorter sleeves than the petite XL. They are basically the same - so you know in case they're out of the color you're looking for. :)

Rated 1 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Rough and uncomfortable material
I am returning the French Sailor's Shirt that I bought. The material is rough and uncomfortable. I am very disappointed, especially since it is going to cost me $6.50 to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by teola Love this shirt. I now own three of them.
I love this shirt. I bought one this Fall and just bought two more for Spring and Summer. I usually wear a small but bought a medium the first time and with regular washing and drying it did shrink a little. I love the feel and fit. My go to shirt with the first one. Now I will have three choices of colors. Thank you LLBean once again for quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NMDreamer Hoping the new shorter fit really is shorter
I have one of these shirts in bright red with a cream stripe, absolutely love the color. I bought it 2-3 years ago. My only issue has been that I am short waisted and pear shaped and all Bean tees seem to be WAY too long (even Petites, and I am 5'8") and therefore not flattering. I need shorter tees. It sounds like these might be shorter now, so I'm taking a chance and ordering another. Otherwise, they are perfect for cooler evenings or air-conditioned offices on casual work days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mom6 Well-made shirt!
This is my first French Sailor's shirt and now I know why it is so popular and a classic. The material (medium weight) is substantial and very good quality. The colors are beautiful and wash well.
I do wish it were a little longer for some of us who aren't real skinny like the model and the shirt hangs a bit short.

Rated 1 out of 5 by aebplusthree so disappointed
I've bought these shirts for years, and was excited to add a couple of new ones. How disappointed I am - they are going back. The "cream" color is very yellow (no comparison to an older shirt I still have). The boat neck is too wide; shows bra straps and is kind of an odd shape. The material is less substantial than it used to be, too. I agree with other reviewers that the shirts are too short overall. Please, LL Bean, return to your previous quality in fabrics and workmanship - there are shoppers out there who still value these things!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Ezefrance Not impressed
To me the texture of the cotton was rough and not the smooth pima I had expected. The coral and navy colors were bright and as pictured though. Upon trying it on, it definitely was too short and I want to clarify that I am NOT long waisted--this top went just to the bottom of my belly button. Anytime I would bend it was, "Hello world, check out my tummy or backside!" Overall, I was very disappointed with the quality of the material and the fit. Definitely not the same smooth pima as used in their other items like the pajamas they had over the holidays that I love and are no longer in stock.
