Rated 1 out of 5 by TinTiger So disappointed
I have been purchasing LL Bean shirts for my husband for years. This latest batch was purchased in January. (6 months ago) They are already frayed at the collar and cuffs and the seam is coming apart at the sleeve. Won't be buying again. So disappointed - especially for the price per shirt. I wonder if manufacturer's changed? Quality sure did.

I own quite a few of these Wrinkle-Free Classic Oxford Cloth Shirts?nearly every color Bean has offered over the last 6 or 7 years. They are among my favorites?are of a sturdy oxford cloth like when I was in high school (early 60's), have a comfortable traditional fit and are wrinkle free. This new one is the Burnt Orange?looks more like Peach to me. I mean, it looks really nice; but I'm not seeing Burnt Orange. I don't know?maybe Peach isn't included in the fashion colors this year?whereas Burnt Orange could be?I really don't follow such things. Peach is just fine for spring and summer wear. At the sale price though, this is an unbeatable deal for a classic, easy to care for, traditional oxford shirt!

Rated 3 out of 5 by NicName They wear out quickly!
I love Bean for the ease of purchase and the fabulous customer service, but I'm beginning to think I need another vendor to buy my husband's shirts. (Yes, I buy them, and if I didn't I'm not sure what he'd be wearing to work.) The Bean shirts always wear out at the elbows, and I don't think his elbows are particularly pointy. Bean, can you please revisit quality issues? Just reading through these reviews leads me to believe many feel the same way. We're on your side, but you're losing us ....

The shirt fits well and the material is very nice. While pressing it after the first washing I notice a small hole above the breast pocket.

Rated 4 out of 5 by avodoc Great, but they don't last very long
I've decided that there must be something about the process that makes them iron-free that also makes them less durable. I will say that they come out of the dryer looking like they were just ironed, and ironed well. However I've had several of these shirts and they last about 2 to 3 years and then start to completely wear out. That's less than half the life I get from regular oxford cotton shirts. What happens is that all of a sudden I start to get holes in the elbows, fraying along the edge of the seams and around the collar. They seem to sort of go all at once. I continue to buy them because the no-iron aspect is so handy, I just know that they are not going to last very long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Retiredteacher1951 Crisp White Dress Shirt
Purchased in January and reordered additional shirts in March. Washes well, I hang dry...remains crisp and looks pressed even when worn all day. Super value. I will continue to keep these shirts stocked in my closet. Need the professional look and this style provides it. Great quality for the money. Have received compliments on my dress.

Rated 2 out of 5 by shoppernr17 Disappointed!
I Have bought five of the long sleeve wrinkle resistant oxford shirts over the past 2 years. Three main problems with the shirt:
1. Fabric tears easily. Either unbuttoning the collar buttons to wash or adjusting the collar so it rolls properly results in easily tearing the fabric where the buttons are attached.
2. Fabric rips or splits where sleeves are rolled up. The shirt is washed with the sleeves rolled down but worn almost exclusively with them rolled up twice. Where folded the fabric has split or ripped along the fold line.
3. Fabric shows excessive wear on all seams that stand proud of the body, i.e., front button placket. collar edges, and any hems/edges.
These defects manifested most noticeably on a light blue and light green shirt.
The fabric treatment to make it wrinkle resistant does feel like permanent starch (one reviewer's description) but is tolerable, what isn't satisfactory is the fragility it imparts to/on the fabric and resulting decreased longevity and shabby appearance where worn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DES130 THE BEST
I would rate these shirts as the best oxford cloth shirts that I've owned and I've been wearing oxford cloth shirts a long time. In short, I like the slightly heavier fabric, they easily iron, and they feel as if they have been starched. The only changes I would make are to add some additional colors. In particular, I would like a University Stripe dark khaki or tan, a University Stripe gray, and a solid gray. Bringing back the University Stripe burgundy would also be nice.

After washing the shirt one time buttons fell off. Not what I expected for this price. Probably would not risk buying another one.
