Rated 5 out of 5 by KarenCanada Very nice, definitely a classic
I first bought this shirt in deep mallard and in the regular size medium. It's comfortable, classy and fits me like it was customized for my body type. Many of the latest shirts out there are very fitted and do not work for well for a size 12 body type, but this one exceeded my expectations. I loved it so much I went online and bought a few more. It's not just any ordinary t-shirt because the material feels more sturdy, and there is a great selection of colours. My only suggestion for Bean is to have more darker colours. I lean towards darker colours such as teal, deep mallard, blue etc because I feel they're more flattering on me. Please keep your Bean classics and I'm pretty sure I will come back for more.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MaliMaltese Worst T-shirt
Sorry, but this has got to be the worst T-shirt I ever bought. The neck is way too tight, and the entire shirt doesn't feel like a T- shirt at all - more like a rain coat!
Really stiff and heavy, very uncomfortable to wear. Feels like plastic. Really horrible, I would not recommend this to anyone. I only gave it one star because I had to.

Rated 2 out of 5 by oakland Whatever happened to the t-shirt?
Do NOT like the fabric. It is heavy and stretchy, Have sent so many back trying to find the light weight cotton t-shirt that Bean use to sell that I won't buy another one from them. Would only recommend this so called t-shirt if you're looking for spandex.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Canmore Not relaxed fit
I have purchased this same t-shirt over the years and in a direct comparison to an old one, this one is more fitted and the neck is smaller. Very disappointing. It will be going back.

I like this shirt but would love it if it were the old fashion cotton. It says 100% cotton but it does not feel like it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sampy Shrank after washing
I bought this shirt in field moss. Beautiful color! I really wanted to love this shirt. Unfortunately after washing in cold water and letting it air dry, it shrunk and the shirt no longer fits properly. As the other reviewers have stated, the shrinkage is unacceptable. I have never had this problem with other LL Bean shirts so I am assuming that it is just this certain type that shrinks. I am returning this shirt. Thank you LL Bean for your fabulous return policy. I don't want to be stuck with a shirt that doesn't fit.

Loved this shirt until I washed it. Wished I had read other reviews. Unacceptable amount of shrinkage. Come on Bean's -- you can do better than this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by harpergirl Really nice Tee
I never really know what I am going to get when I order a t-shirt from LL Bean. When my package came today I counted the short-sleeved LL Bean Ts in my closet...and there are 15. And I just put a really ratty old one in the rag bin. My shirts are a variety of fabrics and styles, and I love them all. These seem a bit different from any of my others, but I love them. They are soft and fit great. Important for you lovers of yellow....on my computer, the yellow looked like a really cool (in artist terms), gaudy yellow, but I took a chance and received a lovely, buttery, beautiful yellow shirt. The bright green one is really bright, but funky. And the tan one was just as I expected.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Westerner66 Tee shirts shrink
I am so disappointed in this tee shirt. I have been trying to find a tee shirt that I love and then will order in every color. This tee shirt was great before washing but after washing it shrunk so bad I cannot wear it any longer. Would be nice to list the length if the garment in the description along with the weight of the cotton.

Rated 3 out of 5 by missushammer Not relaxed fit, and shrinks a lot
I can usually depend on LLBean t-shirts to be A-OK. If it's advertised as relaxed I always order down to a Small; otherwise I get Mediums. Don't like my shirts too baggy or too tight. Usually pretty consistent and reliable to order that way. But this t-shirt could not be a relaxed fit. Before washing, it fit a bit more snug than a Small relaxed normally would, but was certainly a keeper - loved the length and was overall very comfortable. Then I washed it. Shrunk considerably in length and in width...it fits now like a fitted XS all over. Plus the neck opening seems smaller and doesn't have as much give for pulling over your head like LLBean shirts usually do. The fabric is very soft and a nice weight, however. Am not sure whether to return for a Medium; I don't want to get hit with two return shipping charges if the Medium relaxed is too big (which they usually are). I have rarely returned a washed shirt, never felt right doing that. But sizing in many LLBean items has become so unpredictable that I'm not going to keep them any longer. If they shrink so much that they become a completely different size, then back it goes from now in, including this one. It's a shame, because the fabric feels very nice.
