Rated 3 out of 5áby Fraugher Confirming the One Problem
As some other reviewers have noted, this is a very very nice shirt with a fatal flaw... gigantic wrist openings and only one button on the cuff, so cannot make the wrist opening smaller. It is so big, looks goofy, even thick wristed folk will not pass. Simple fix, LLBean, let us know when you add the second button.

Rated 3 out of 5áby GregN Perfect fit, just one minor detail...
I absolutely love this shirt! Except for one minor nagging detail.
First, let me say that this shirt is the best fitting non-custom shirt I've ever owned. The fit and finish are excellent, and the shirt requires very little by way of care. The value is outstanding for the quality. It always looks great and it's one of my very favorite from the closet.
Unfortunately, this shirt suffers from a serious drawback, in the form of a very minor missing detail. It only has one-button cuffs. To make matters worse, it seems to have been sized for someone wearing the latest hockey puck-sized watches. Plus, there aren't enough "extra" buttons on the shirt tail to add them myself. As perfect as this shirt is, it should come with two buttons on the cuffs.
This minor detail, as insignificant as it may seem, drives me up the wall, making me think "cheap" every time I put it on, and is the reason for the three-star rating. I'd gladly give it SIX stars if it came with two-button cuffs!

Rated 3 out of 5áby casey2001 Not a trim fit
The colors are sharp, true and bright. The collar and sleeves fit well. However, this shirt is anything but a trim fit. I am 5'10 and 165. I wear a 33x34 in pants. I honestly believe this shirt is bigger on me than other shirts from LLB. I will be ordering a M size in another more casual style to see how that goes. Sending this one back.

Rated 5 out of 5áby olefrijole They don't make shirts like these anymore
I needed a replacement light blue oxford shirt as I finally wore out the elbows on my old reliable. Right out of the bag I laundered it and tumble dried it. I could have worn it right out of the dryer. The material is substantial. It feels crisp and fresh all day long. I bought my shirt at my favorite size and in trim fit but it still felt a bit large. Now, the test is on to see how long the elbows last!

Rated 3 out of 5áby Grayhair Not as Expected
I have three other LL Bean Wrinkle-Resistant Oxford Cloth Shirts, all purchased from two years to six months ago. This one is not the same. The cloth is thin, doesn't look or feel like pinpoint oxford. Seems more like a thin broadcloth. I have bought almost all of my clothes and a lot of other things from LL Bean for many years. Let's hope this one product is an anomaly and that LL Bean quality is not changing for the worst. On the positive side, the shirt is truly wrinkle free and can be worn right out of the dryer.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Greener Trim but not Slim
I think this trim fit is a winner. I would recommend to anyone who thinks that a regular fit feels too big. The fabric is good quality.
I only wish that more Oxfords would offer Trim fit.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Michiganian Great shirt
My husband loves these shirts and has several of them. I love that they come out of the dryer looking great. We just wish they came in more colors, something other than blue would be nice.

Rated 4 out of 5áby noironlady Great regular fit, trim fit not slim enough!
I love these shirts for my husband. But, I purchased one for my 35 year-old son, and the "trim fit" was still too loose. He had to return it. Boy was I disappointed! So was his wife. I went on and on about how they come out of the dryer looking starched and pressed. I had read other comments that the trim fit is just not trim enough. I suggest you add a SLIM fit to your selection for all the younger guys and new styles. PLEASE!!!!!
If I were rating this on my husband's size, 10 stars!! But the trim fit just isn't trim enough, so I had to delete one star.

Rated 5 out of 5áby tww4005 Always a Great Shirt
I have several of these. Being a road warrior having a shirt that can come out of the bag ready to put on is wonderful. My days of ironing are in my hotel room have been reduced considerably. The abundance of size selections are great in a trim fit shirt. I wish that Bean would expand the color selection; I have plenty of French blue, white and strip combinations.

Rated 5 out of 5áby tww4005 Consistantly Great Shirt
I have been buying this shirt for years and love the consistantcy, the ability to get a shirt I know will fit any time. My only wish is that LL Bean would make more colors and patterns available.
