Rated 3 out of 5 by purplepeahen Short sleeves
These shirts deserve 5 stars except for the sleeves. The sleeves are so short that they look more like 3/4 sleeves and can't be buttoned. I have 2 of these shirts; they are comfortable, wash well, dry well, and wear like iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShoppingGuru Great shirt
Love the shirt. Would order black, but not available in unlined. Please make this in black. Relaxed fit is very comfortable to wear anywhere.

by Magret VERY different color than image
I ordered this shirt in the color "Twilight" in an extra small. Having read a few reviews before ordering, I wasn't terribly surprised when what I received was a medium teal, as opposed to a medium/dark blue. I have attached an image that will hopefully show a truer representation of the color.
It's still a color I like and will certainly wear, but if you're very particular about colors, this may not be the shirt for you.
The fabric is very soft. For an oversized shirt, it is still a flattering fit. I have a small frame with broad shoulders, so I usually have to order a size small to be able to move comfortably, but in this the XS has plenty of room.
The sleeves seem a hair short, but that might just be me.

Please consider the corduroy big shirt - unlined in black, brown, navy.
The pastels are nice for spring, but would love to see these other colors offered.

Rated 5 out of 5 by libraryland Mineral Red!!!!
I love the corduroy big shirts, the sleeve length and body length are perfect for petite sizes.
But this is my first bad review for LL Bean.
I was expecting Mineral Red. When I opened the package yesterday I was so disappointed, the color is of an unripe watermelon. The color seems to be a rose/orange. Absolutely nothing red about it. The online color distinctly shows red, so this is pretty deceptive. I am going to keep the shirt only because it fits, and is warm for fall/winter months. Hopefully the color will grow on me.
LL Bean, you need to seriously take a look at this color you are advertising as Mineral Red.
I would still recommend this to a friend because of the quality and fit, but give caution about the color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DelightfullyPleased So soft and comfortable
I loved this shirt/jacket so much I bought another. They are soft and cozy, very well made and warm, but not too warm! I love the length and the full size... fits perfect. I would love this in warm fleece or corduroy with open cuffs I could roll up... hint hint. The violet is beautiful and so is the tidal blue. Very impressed!

Rated 3 out of 5 by cskbjustme Red is not Fuschia
Just received the shirt and it's comfortable and fits just fine. My issue is that I ordered Poppy, and this shirt is clearly pink, not red. Call it Fuschia, Rose, whatever. Poppy is not the right name for this color. So, if you are looking for red, don't order Poppy!

Rated 3 out of 5 by WNCBeanGal Just a little off
I have loved the corduroy big shirts I bought several years ago, but I recently gave them away because they're too large now that I've lost weight. So I was eager to replace them with Medium size shirts, but the fit is just a little off. Perhaps today's shirt design or sizing is a little different than the old ones. The Medium fits me, but it just isn't as comfortable as I'd like, and the Large is way too big. I'm keeping it, but it isn't the same "go-to" shirt I remember from a few years ago.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kattrax Great Shirt, but Wrong Color
I now have two of these shirts in a petite size. The fabric is soft and warm and the drape is nice, I get a larger size to layer over a turtle neck or pima t-shirt. My only complaint is that the colors I ordered both looked different than pictured--I ordered twilight, which looked like a medium-dark blue and it actually looks like a light teal. Then I ordered poppy, which looked like a cherry red, but it is actually a rose pink. I'm pretty particular about colors, so I'm not sure I'll order again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JanQ Comfy and warm.
I bought this corduroy big shirt for warmth this winter since I love the look and feel of corduroy. The color is beautiful (lavender) and it's very warm and comfortable. It fits on my shoulders, but is truly a big shirt. I like shirts that are tailored to fit a woman's body so it doesn't look like I raided my husband's closet. This doesn't fit that way so I sewed my own darts on the front and back and now it looks better. If I order one of these shirts again I plan on adding darts to make it look like a woman's shirt. Other than that, I love the shirt.
