Rated 3 out of 5 by Grams1998 Beautiful top, but order larger size
I ordered three of these shirts during the 25% off sale on tops. They are well constructed, but the fabric is a bit scratchy. Other reviewers warned of shrinkage. Before I wore any of the tops, I cold washed, delicate, one of them, with hang drying. Major shrinkage, about two inches both ways! Unfortunately, my size 1X body does not look good with the smaller, clinging shirt. Returned all three shirts.

Disappointed in the quality of this item. Not up to LLBean standards.
Sweater had a not very nice chemical odor.

Looks good on, but the fabric is very coarse and stiff. I tried it on and was scratching right away. I expected a heavy knit cotton with the feel of a heavier T-shirt type material. This is a sweater, and although it is 100% cotton it is not soft at all. I am 5'11" and the length is just right BEFORE washing. Not so sure it will get more than one use after the inevitable shrinkage of the first wash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Seattlejanie So comfy and versatile
I ordered the emerald / dark turquoise French Sailor's shirt. To me it is more of a light sweater, but no matter. I LOVE the color of this shirt, flattering and bright. Now that I know to order XS, the sweater fits like a charm & not overly / immodestly clingy. I wish the button up shirts fit like this. If I could, I would order 1 in every color. This is my 3rd one I've ordered, I can wear them year round. Not on the hottest summer day, but on a cooler day or in the evening when the temperature drops, it's perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Dlynne Favorite Casual Shirt; Will Shrink!
I really like the look, fit, and weight of this shirt. I'd bought one a few years ago in a color that wasn't "me." Glad I decided to give it another try. This time I bought one in Orange and one in Cornflower. I like that this shirt provides nice coverage overall in a longish length, yet the weave is loose enough that the shirt's cool on a hot day. Also, fun colors to choose from, but the look is classic. Warning, though, my Medium shirt shrank at least two inches in every direction when it went into the dryer. It lost its nice length and drape. I will only line-dry in the future. Llbean might consider changing the care instructions.

I bought this shirt in the blush pink/navy stripe. It's really a great shirt. I don't know if any other shirts have this particular knit, but I would certainly buy more. I'm not crazy about high contrast stripes, so I personally wouldn't buy another of the choices that are currently offered, unless it came out in some darker stripe combos or solid colors. The fit of this is perfect in my usual size, and it's very comfortable.

I hesitated ordering this for 3 years but finally gave in. The fabric is substantial, between a t-shirt and a sweater. I bought the navy with cream stripes in XL which is my usual size and it is perfect. I am 5'10" and I like the length of the arms and the body. V. comfy and it looks nice with jeans. At the regular price it is an excellent value. If you are hesitating, buy it! I don't think you will be disappointed.

I'm a little confused as to the term rib-knit; I thought it meant a heavier t-shirt material. This is more like a cotton sweater.
No harm, no foul. I won't be able to use it on vacation (warm location) but it'll make a nice, warm, work shirt!

I love the style & color combinations. (Stripes). But I would like this in your fabulous prima cotton.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PCox Love this!
Received this shirt today and love it! Great fit and very nice material. I'm 5'2 and a bit busty. Typically, I order 2X to make sure my clothes don't fit too tight. I ordered this in hopes that I would be able to use it for dress causal and possibly business meetings. It's perfect for both. It is fitted, but in a flattering way. I'd say that the fit is true to size. The 3/4 sleeves are perfect for me, but if your arms are a bit longer it might not work as well. The material is more substantial than expected, but I think that's a good thing. Overall, I'm very happy with the quality of the shirt. I plan to order a few more in other colors. Shipping time was amazing. It wasn't supposed to be in until tomorrow.
