Rated 3 out of 5 by mommapalooza Love the shirt but not the heather colors
Over the years I have purchased many versions of this shirt (short sleeve, sleeveless, long sleeve) in many different colors -- but not the heather colors. The few that I tried I sent right back. Please, all ye LLBean Decision Makers, bring back the regular, non-heather colors of the last 5-6 years!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MidMom I should have paid attention
to the negative reviews. The fit is weird for XL The neck is too tight by a fraction. The armpits are too small and it has cap sleeves rather than actual short sleeves. I am only a B bra size, yet this shirt pulls across the chest. I was constantly tugging the shirt down not because it was too short, but because it was crawling into my neck and under my arms. The whole top twelve inches of the shirt needs redesign. I checked the size chart before ordering, yet it has this marginal uncomfortable fit.
I'm really disapointed as I like the thick fabric, it is not one of those stupid translucent "layering" t shirts you cannot wear in public. The fabric is heavy, has nice feel and attractive heather colors. But the shirt is cut for someone even more flat chested than I am, with narrow shoulders and a pencil neck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by PetLuver Need more light colors for women!
I love this shirt! It is soft and the thickness of cotton is perfect. I wear a 2X and size and length for me are perfect. The only drawback is that there are not more light colors. I own five white but would like light pink and light yellow. I ordered the oatmeal heather and it was dark. I gave it to charity. The only thing that could be better about this wonderful shirt is that there would be more "light" colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SJTU Love the shirts...dislike heather colors
Have been wearing these shirts for years. It's time to refresh my supply but why are they only offered in the heathered colors???? This was an issue last year and I had hoped this year would see the return of at least a few solid colors. Please bring them back. I would like more than black and white!

Rated 5 out of 5 by arum8lily Such A Good Fit!
I bought a few of these t-shirts and they great. Material is a good thickness, the length is just right, they're loose enough without being baggy, I liked the colours although I wish there was a bit more variety. They sit just right at the sleeves - short but not too much so. I'm very pleased with these t-shirts and I'm sure in the future will be buying more of them!

Bought the tee in saltwater blue heather - good quality. The actual color of the shirt is nice, but much darker than shown in the catalog and lighter than shown online (!). Minor shrinkage after first washing. Will still keep it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by serenelakesgirl Love this shirt, but bring back the solid colors!
This is a great shirt! I have purchased these for many years. They wash well and wear nicely. The fit and heavier weight of the fabric is exactly what I like! However, could you please re-introduce a large variety of solid colors (non-heathered) back to this line of shirts? I really miss the solid colors as you could dress them up or down depending on your needs. I wear these shirts everyday of my life! Thank you so much!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TravelnShop Good, but too short!
This t-shirt has many fine features. The fabric is heavier than some so no problem with it being too sheer, even in white. It washes nicely and no wrinkles when hung to dry. The neckline is just right and does stretch out. My only complaint is it's too short! Please please please give us an extra inch or two in length, or offer a tall version. I would buy one in every color in a longer length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BlueHenGrad Great basic, now where are the pure colors?
I do not like heather colors. They look faded and dull on me. Now I am seeing ONLY heather colors in all Bean's Tees. Where are the pure colors? Can't you at least give us a few? Even the unshrinkable tee which was always pure colors, now features heathers. I dip not know how the recent sizing change will affect me, if at all, as I am not buying any of these colors. I gave the T 4 stars based on the many older Bean Tees in my closet, which are perfect except for some shrinkage in length.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CCGirl27 Best TShirt
I love this tshirt. I bought it in white and I'd love to buy more but not sure if the heathered ones will be as nice. The fit is great (1X) and true to size. I also bought one of the pima cotton tshirts but this one is much better by far. Definitely recommend!
