Rated 5 out of 5 by Goalie Trim Fit Key
These shirts are comfortable and great for casual wear. I'm slim and short. The trim fit has been key for me as I don't like to tuck in my shirt. I no longer look like a tent with extra material flapping in the breeze and filling with air on a windy day. The trim fit falls closer to my body without clinging or feeling tight. I own most colors. I wish they would add a couple more colors. It's easy to come home from work or on the weekends to grab any pair of shorts, one of these polos and run out the door quickly looking good and comfortable. They also fold and pack well for traveling.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Yankoz why the tail
The material and durability are OK but why the tail? I wear polos over the belt not tucked in and these look silly worn that way. I prefer the Signature cut without the tail that can be worn outside the belt..

My husband loves these slim polo shirts. Great fit. He wishes
that they would come in more colors. He already has dark green,
grey but would like to have lighter colors. He's is not heavy so
most shirts are way to wide around the waist.

Great, great shirt. Love the weight and "hand" (feel) of the material.
However, it seems that after just a few washings the "Banded Sleeves" have lost much of their tightness, and the "Trim Fit" is not as . . . "Trim".
Or maybe I need to workout harder on my biceps and chest? I'm not sure which.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lisaRN Great Product! Colors options are terrible this yr
Bought these for my 15 and 16 year old sons last 2 years for school. The navy blue color faded somewhat, but the fit is fabulous for tall, athletic built men and the product does not shrink, minimal wrinkles. Overall a great product, just wish the color selection included navy or royal blue this year!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldGuyWhoBuysThings Another Demographic
Unlike most of the trim fit fan base, I'm an old dude with an un-athletic spare tire. Also, being 68, 5'9", and 200, it doesn't seem like these shirts would be a perfect fit, but they are. The regular XL's are way too baggy, but the slim fit serves another market niche: older people who can't wear what's called the "modern fit" and need an in between shirt. Hope you'll keep the 2013 sizing, offer more colors (the purple ink would have been great), and consider having long sleeve trim fits. For southern Californians they'd be great winter and spring wear. Nice to find a company that offers a wide range of fits for a wide range of customers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TaylorG Almost perfect
The large fits me almost perfectly; I'm 6 feet, 205 pounds, 35 inch waist, athletic upper body. I asked a tailor to make it a bit slimmer in the body, but he was only willing to take out 1/2 inch on either side.
The only drawback is that the neck opening is wide. I normally take about a 17 inch, which is larger than one would expect on this shirt size, but this collar is bigger than that. Although you don't normally button the top button anyway, the large opening still has the effect of creating large gaps between the neck and shirt.
BTW, I wish the shirt measurements that LL Bean provides would tell me the size of the shirt, not the size of the body that it fits. The latter makes assumptions about the sort of fit desired, but I'd rather have the information to make that decision myself.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Factor34 Trim Fit? Not even close!
I received the usual high-quality L.L.Bean shirt only to be disappointed in the "trim fit" execution. It fits great...if you're looking for a REGULAR fit. The only thing trim about this shirt is where it says "trim fit" on the tag. In fact, another discount retail version of this shirt that I recently bought is actually a truer trim fit. THAT is disappointing given my usual great record with L.L.Bean shirts. Again...a high quality shirt. But a REGULAR fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Reviewer721 Husband loves this shirt
Bought a bunch of colors of this shirt. Husband adores them, and he's particular about his polos. Generous weight of fabric, seems to hold shape well. Nice longer length for back tuck in tail of shirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tgss Not so trim or colourful
I like the shirts, but agree with many of the other reviewers that they could be trimmer than they are. I'm also disappointed with the limited selection of colours in the trim fit style in comparison with the regular shirts - why so few??
