Rated 3 out of 5 by mountainstatemom Neckline Too Wide
I bought the Petite XS in cream/navy and cornflower blue/cream. The neckline was too wide. I spent all day adjusting my bra strap so that it would not show. It was very annoying. The reason why anyone would buy a Petite XS is that they are a small person with slim shoulders. If the neckline is an inch or two smaller, it would be perfect. The sleeve length, garment length, and fabric are all fine. The colors are beautiful.

Rated 2 out of 5 by garden4 wanted to love it
I wanted to love this shirt - I loved the cornflower blue with white stripe color and the fabric to nice as well. The fit, however, is too short and boxy. The description states it is slightly fitted and falls at hip. I didn't find this at all. It fell just below waist after first washing and was not fitted at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oregondweller Great shirt!
I love this shirt. V. nautical in feel. Comfy, cozy, great fit. I got a large as I'm busty (38DDD). I was afraid it would be tight but not at all. I cold-washed it, then laid it flat to dry before wearing. I've got my eye on a couple more color combos.

Rated 4 out of 5 by grma Great fit
Love the look, feel and fit of this shirt. It washes beautifully. The fabric does snag and there is a hole in the sleeve of my shirt now. Hoping its reparable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CPenn the perfect top for summer
I'd been admiring everybody else's striped tops this spring and was delighted to find the perfect version at LLBean. The boat neck is flattering and the 3/4 sleeves are great ? I always have to roll up long sleeves when I'm working. I have two colorways and they both look sporty and chic with jeans or Bean's cropped pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MEDWgoWildcats Best shirts ever!!
I have been a long time Bean customer but just discovered these shirts last year. I now own 7 of them!! (Maybe 8--I've lost count!) The knit is lovely and substantial and holds its shape quite well. (I do not put mine in the dryer but that is just me--I put most of my cotton knits on a laundry rack to dry.) I find these shirts to be perfect for three seasons and very versatile. They come in a variety of colors so everyone should find one they like. Give these shirts a try! You won't be sorry.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TallerLLBeanShopper Itchy Fabric
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.
