Rated 5 out of 5 by StylinGal CareFree Unshrinkable Tee with Pocket, Traditional
These are great tee shirts. Fabric nice and tight. Holds up well to washings. True to size and colors. Bought four of them. My husband loves pocket tees. Shirts do not shrink in dryer. Very comfortable fit my husband says.

Rated 2 out of 5 by CJAH Yellow Cast after Washing
I ordered 4 of these t-shirts in white and they are everything LL Bean described them to be with the exception that they have a yellow cast after they are washed. My whites are pure white but these t-shirts look yellowish beside them. I wash all of our clothes in a gentle detergent as per Manufacturer's instructions and the t-shirts have only been washed with other whites. So if you don't mind a yellow cast, then the shirts are wonderful. I imagine the coloured ones would not be affected.

This T shirt used to be of good quality. After production moved to Viet Nam the quality of the stitching is not very good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bcassidy Terrific fit!
FINALLY--a t-shirt with a reasonably snug-fitting neck (instead of a gaping barrel-ring), sleeves that reach the elbow (instead of barely covering the shoulders), and a comfortably loose fit through the chest and waist (instead of a form-fitting sausage skin). Also this t-shirt is truly unshrinkable, and fits like new after a dozen machine wash-and-dries. Congratulations, L.L. Bean!

Tight in the neck. No matter how much you try to stretch the neck, it will go back to its original state. Not a bad thing but the neck is too tight. I have experienced some piling on the back of the shirt due to wearing a messenger bag on my daily commute. I also feel the sleeves are a little too long but rolling them up solves that problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DaveIndiana neck tight and size skimpy
The shirts are well made but the neck opening is cut way too small and too high for my tastes. The medium size is also cut skimpy, at least the ones I had to send back were.

I have loved these T-shirts for years, but these new treated T-shirts are horrible. They need to stop treating them for stain resistance chemicals because they have ruined them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Arbee456 Like a synthetic
These Tee's live up to the "carefree unshrinkable" tag. They are very sturdy, and I'm sure durable. But, apparently the treatment used to make them so also makes them non-absorbent and not very breathable; takes the cotton qualities out of the cotton. End result is, when worn in warm, humid weather, you'll feel more sweaty than usual. The shirt won't absorb (much) or wick.
I'll keep mine to wear in the spring and fall only.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Calidad Chemically Treated
This shirt achieves its properties with a chemical that renders the cotton more like a synthetic. Try mopping up water with it, and compare it to plain old cotton. Worn, it is less breathable and amplifies body odors in the way that a synthetic tee does. Oh, right, it doesn't wrinkle or fade. It'll last forever, too -- mine sits in a drawer. The Adirondack tee is much better.
