Rated 2 out of 5 by UrbanHiker LL Bean's color descriptions strike again
I bought the "washed periwinkle" shade of this shirt. On my computer monitor, and for everything else I have _ever_ bought in "periwinkle," this means a very light shade of bluish-lavender, which I love.
Fast forward to receiving the package. The shirt is LIGHT BLUE. There is not a single hint of purple anywhere in the fabric. Only under incandescent light, the most unreliable source of all, might you for an instant believe this is "periwinkle."
I like the shirt and I don't hate the color, so I'm keeping it. But please, LL Bean, buy a daylight bulb and use it when you formulate your oh-so-creative color descriptions?or stick to red, green, blue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by frankcat "Camel" is not! More like a light greyish taupe.
*Excited* to order this shirt in camel - a classic neutral that I thought would quickly become a go-to staple. I have several of these in different colors and live in them. Shirt arrived today - the color is definitely not camel!! Sort of a washed out light greyish taupe color.Not sure if I will keep. I like these shirts overall, but the color representation is not accurate. Disappointed!!!! Giving a 3 star rating based on the color issue, ordinarily would give 5 stars. (PS - This item always runs large - size down if in doubt.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gram42 sleeves shrunk
I love the comfort of this shirt. Before I washed it, it fit perfect. After several washes the sleeves shrank so I have to wear it with the sleeves rolled up because they don't go down to my wrists anymore--I ordered an XL. If it came in long/tall it would be better for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by senlin I understand "big", but this is HUGE!
I just received 4 tops I ordered in my usual LLB size, which is an XL. They all fit me perfectly, except this one! I get that the fit is supposed to be roomy, but this is almost falling off of me. It's at least 5" too big in the hips (which trust me, are not the narrowest part of my body), and the sleeves - the sleeves are so long that they cover all but the ends of my fingers!
I'd send it back for an exchange, but I wouldn't have a clue what size to order instead, so it's just going back.

Very versatile, beautiful color and fabric. I own two so far and would love to own more. Great over a tee or turtleneck for almost any occasion. I do think it would be better without the pocket, makes it look a bit like a man's shirt if you ask me. But I can live with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovinglife1 Excellent comfortable shirts
I have about 6 of these shirts now, and I am in Love! I put on on in the morning with my gown. I fond myself grabbing for one every time it gets a little chilly. Great to use all year long. Can be used as a shirt or as a light jacket. I would like to get a brown one, if ever offered. I do have the black, camel, cream, yellow, sky blue and a green one. Great shirts that look good on anyone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sturmmie NEED BASIC DARK COLORS
I own almost every color you ever made-but my most basic ones (chocolate and black) are getting worn out.
Please bring back those colors!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CanadianLLBeanLover absolutely perfect!
I wanted something to wear now on cool evenings as well as through the fall and winter and this big shirt is perfect. I wear a size 14 and the large is just right.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bungalow corduroy shirts
I own many of these great shirts. Each year I look forward to buying more.
This year I am stumped. The colours are pale, washed out and there is not even a basic black. Thank heavens I bought 2 good blues last year. Where are the rich greens, reds, rusts and blues? It will be autumn and we need strength in the colours. Please reconsider your colour choices. There is value in a primary palette for corduroy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MLMN Big Color Discrepancy
I love these corduroy shirts, I have a number of them, but there is a big problem with the stated color, the color that it looks like online and the actual color they are when you receive them!! I just ordered the poppy color which looks like poppy online and I just received the shirt and it is a deep Rose or hot pink color. It is a nice color, but it is NOT a poppy color. I really wanted a red corduroy shirt for the fall and this is not it! Bean, could you please
make your colors of your products true on the website or change the names of the colors of these shirts to reflect the actual color that they are. I have had a big problem with this. Other than not knowing what color I am really going to get, these shirts are great!
