Rated 2 out of 5 by molinyc Great looking shirt - but after 3-4 months - rips
This is a great looking shirt but the durability of the cloth is horrible - it has ripped - on three (3) seperate occassions - I was crazy to re-order it three times but my husband really liked it.
The rip occurs in the same place each time - in the back, just below his belt line - as he tries to tuck-in the back.
Time to look else where.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VermonterSE Perfect Oxford!
LL Bean customer service is unparalleled: I bought this item according to their size chart and it was huge, so I never wore it. A year later I stumbled across the unworn shirt in my closet and decided to call them to discuss their sizing -- they were extremely helpful and promptly asked me to return the shirt for a properly sized one, which I did (sans receipt). Not only was I stunned by their return policy and the patience and time taken by their customer care representative, but the replacement was perfect in all regards. Quite simply, they have won (yet another) lifelong customer.

It has a very nice firm feel and substance. Very comfortable, great casual shirt with jeans on a cool fall day. Great for a day off or business casual at the office. Looks crisp and sharp.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KManning "Who irons your shirts?"
L.L. Bean Wrinkle-Resistant Classic Oxford Cloth Shirts are excellent; durable, comfortable, incredibly wrinkle resistant.
I regularly receive compliments when wearing one and whenever I'm asked who irons my shirts my answer is always the same...L.L.Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VeryHappyCustomerPaul Outstanding Travel Shirt
I own 'wrinkle-resistant' shirts from Pink and Brooks Brothers. When I travel I MUST pull out an iron with those shirts, but that is not necessary with wrinkle-resistant Oxford shirts from LLBean. Simply hang the shirt in a steamy shower and let set overnight and in the morning one will have a perfect shirt. I just returned from a 19 day business trip to Europe. I brought with me two LLBean Oxford shirts, and I wore each shirt for 3 days (at different clients, so I could get away with doing that!). I've owned these LLBean shirts for nearly two years and I've worn them twice a month over that time. Not only do they perform well, they are extremely durable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by tradoxford almost great
I think the overall fit is nice. I hope LLBean takes into consideration adding some length to the shirt front/tail. When tucked in I noticed it is just barely beneath the belt line. If you're wearing low rise pants you'll have issues keeping the shirt neatly tucked. The back of the collar is quite short, so keeping the bottom of a tie from showing takes some convincing. Overall the quality is nice. After the first wash/dry the shirt came out looking nicely pressed which I liked. The fabric is a bit stiff, however, the Land's End no-iron Supima Oxford Dress shirts are much softer. This shirt has a nice collar roll for those who notice small details like that, and I would be a continued buyer if the shirt was lengthened so that it is easier to keep the shirt under the belt line.

Great shirt, but the two blues are virtually the same shade...what you call "french blue" is what every other color scheme calls plain-old, button-down oxford blue. A real french blue would be nice, or another color other than blue and slightly paler blue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by FXshopper Slightly Fitted is not exactly the former Trim
I have been a loyal follower of the LLBean shirts for the past 15 years. Practically every dress shirt in my closet came from LL Bean. The fabrics are high quality and so is how they are sewn together.
For me, one of key advantages of an LL Bean shirt is also they have sleeves that is exactly 32 inches, rather than the 32-33 inches from other manufacturers. Let's face it, 32-33 inches means 33 inches.
The new cut of the Slightly Fitted seems to have changed. When I order the same size as before, now the sleeves seems to be one inch longer, and the upper body (shoulder and chest area# seems to be bigger. It looks like a bubble has been added and looks awkward.
Puzzled, I put the Slightly Fitted over the former Trimmed one #which fitted me perfect for the past 15 years). The length of the sleeves are exactly the same! The sleeves on the Slightly Fitted is more narrow. The shoulder area seems to have added an inch or so. This allowed the sleeves to drop further and become too long.
I think the new cut will be okay for someone who fits the new mold. The materials are still good. For me, sadly, I will have to look for another brand as the new cut won't fit me anymore.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeanBoyJr Slightly Fitted is more fitted in arms
I couldn't quite figure out why this shirt fit differently than my last same-sized Trim Fit one until I compared the arms. The arms have been slimmed - which is what many wanted - and it does feel a bit tight in the forearm and the underarm. The arm seems to ride up slightly more when bent since it is tighter. Quality still seems as good as before. But not sure if I should return for a larger size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JoeFriday Good Quality, Poor Fit
I bought this shirt with exact neck and sleeve sizing hoping that the fit would be better than Bean's sport shirt sizing (too baggy even in trim fit). The fit of this shirt was good in the neck, sleeve and waist but, too small through the chest. The quality of the fabric and workmanship did appear to be good.
