Rated 1 out of 5 by PB57 fray after 4-5 washings
These are beautiful shirts. The fabric feels great. I've bought 6 of these or so. They have all started fraying after 4-5 washings. The university strip shirts seem indestructible.

I have bought several of these shirts. Always get the monogram - BUT they all fray on the collar and sleeves. I will say that everytime I send them back LLBean will replace them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by freudh Ok, but short and comes untucked constantly
So far the fabric of the shirt seems fine through multiple wear and wash cycles. It has a button down collar so the collar stays down. The major problem I have with this shirt is it is always coming untucked. I have a Van Heusen shirt, identical neck and sleeve measurements, that is almost 2" longer in the body. That shirt stays tucked in and is a pleasure to wear. The constant re-tucking is annoying when I wear this shirt.

I own several of these shirts. They're truly wrinkle free, beautiful, and last forever. Unlike the previous shirts, the current shirt has button holes that are either too stiff or too small to fit the buttons through. I thought that maybe I could use a screwdriver to force the buttons through but then I realized something. I would have to call the fire department to get the shirt off!

Thick and properly woven, the cotton and overall quality is that of a much more expensive shirt.
Over time we will see.
As of this date I am thoroughly satisfied.
Good job Beaners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AHomeShopper Fine classic dress shirt
I'm 5' 10" 150lbs and usually take a 15 1/2 x 34. This shirt in that size fits me just right. Cloth feels good, nice styling, bean quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by RJC1 Literally Fell Apart
Purchased this shirt in February 2014. After wearing it approximately 15 times, the buttonhole on one of the cuffs unraveled. After 5 months and perhaps 20 wearings, the fabric has split apart on both sleeves at the elbow. Unbelievably poor quality. Sending back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RJK1 Great Dress ?Shirt
This is a quality dress shirt from L L Bean. Great by itself, with a sport coat or suit and with or without an undershirt or tie. I prefer to wear it with a tailored suit and no tie. The material is soft, comfortable against the skin and very wrinkle resistant. It is a little shiny compared to the classic oxford cloth shirt, but no more than any other pinpoint oxford. The fit is more tailored than the standard fit which I like in a dressier shirt and I would not want it any more fitted. Yes, the cuff buttons are located in a place that allows me to fit my very large hand through the already buttoned cuff. It's not much trouble to add a button or relocate the single button. Overall, I'm very pleased with these shirts and the cuff issue is not enough to loose a star over given the price and quality. Two white, two blue and one blue stripe covers my sporadic need to dress nice and matches my three tailored suits and sport coat. L L Bean, fix the cuff button if you'd like but don't change anything else!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Neils Good shirts
I ordered few shirts from LLbean recently and this one in my mind stood out for its quality compared to others. The fabric feels strong. Finish is great...more formal than other shirts...perhaps that is why it is not called a "sport" shirt.
I however have few issues -
1. The shirt is shorter in general. I am 5'9" and 140...very lean. Compared to other shirts (small sized) this one has sleeves at least inch short! They are barely enough for me. Same goes with overall length.
2. For a slightly fitted,it feels loose compared to other shirts similarly tailored. Its loose in sleeves and body.
3. Unlike other shirts this one does not have two buttons at cuffs. I have slim wrists and its hassle to move the single button to right cuff size. Other cheaper shirts have double buttons on cuff, why not on this more expensive one? ridiculous way to save money Bean.
I may keep it if I feel good enough about bright white color and fabric...but somewhat of a disappointment.
