Rated 1 out of 5 by bjmacinnis Tight, too small, inconsistent sizing
We have bought more than 3 dozen size medium polo shirts from LL Bean over the years and have loved them all. These two shirts we bought were not a medium as we know that size. The chest is about two inches smaller than the other shirts we measured it with.
The sleeves are cut way in to accentuate the smaller chester size. I have had to return the last half dozen or so women's items, too, because of inconsistent sizing. After many years of purchasing polo shirts for my husband, I will not be ordering any more. LL Bean will be losing lots of sales if they cannot get their sizing to be as consistent as it used to be.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MellonC not really navy color
the color is a faded navy. it's not the same as some of the other Bean navy polo shirts. it's like I took a vivid navy color shirt and ran it through the washer about 50 times to get the fading. I bought it cheap and not worth returning..... Oh well. Goodwill here I come....

You could probably sell more polos if you changed the colors with the seasons. Seems like little variation, season to season, year after year

Rated 3 out of 5 by LegumeLovr Great product, lousy inventory control
I love the Bean polo shirts I've gotten, BUT...the inventory control and color selections leave much to be desired. I got the first catalog to feature the teal color less than a week ago and that color is already sold out. The same thing happened with another shirt I would have gotten in the Spring. LLBean has lost so many sales from our family because their inventory control is so lacking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EditorInSeattle Best Polo I've Ever Worn! However...
I currently own over a dozen of the Double L Polos and just recently purchased 4 more embroidered shirts for conference work.
I am 6 ft. / 185 lbs. and wear a Medium-Tall or a Slightly Fitted Large-Tall. Others may not require the Tall option, but I like the longer tails so the shirt stays tucked in, and am willing to pay extra for the tall option.
The shirts launder well, don't require ironing (even though I do a quick touch-up), and have stood the test of time. Polos I purchased four years ago and wear/wash at least 12-15 times a year are still in great shape. However....
I have noticed recently that the Double L Polos are now imported from two different countries: Vietnam and Thailand. The Vietnam polos I've received (about 5 shirts) are looser fitting through the chest and waist than the Thailand shirts. I much prefer the fit of the Thailand shirts and ended up sending back the Vietnam imported polos. To be clear, the quality of both shirts (Vietnam/Thailand) looked and felt the same, the sizing was just different between the two imports.
In spite of this odd sizing issue, the Double L polo is an exceptional shirt, especially at under $35.00 for the Tall option. I highly recommend them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dennis1 to big
I don't understand it the Henlys in medium fit perfect, these shirts are to big. Bring back the trim fit or make these shirts a proper medium

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blacksmithking Love these shirts, but the colors are bright
I love the fit and quality of these shirts. I buy a half dozen or more of them at once and wear them until they tear at the bands on the sleeve or holes appear near the buttons in the collar. The colors seem to be running bright on this run, though. The cottage red is more of a bright red, for example. It's not bad but it's louder than I like. I'm waiting for the darker Fall colors, such as dark brown, brick red, dark green, burnt orange, etc.
