I own several other LL Polo shirts. They are fun and comfortable to wear and always look crisp and new. This shirt lauders beautifully and they never need an iron. I will be buying more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by canadianlovesllbean I'm confused over sizing
I have a lot of older polo's from LLBean, all the same size. Last year I dropped some bleach on a few and ruined them so I was thinking of replacing them but now I am confused with the sizing. I just received my new one for this year and although it is the same size, relaxed fit, this new one is so much smaller and really tight in the arms. What is it with arms in everything from LLBean? My new coats the arms are tight and my older coats fit great. Now the polo's are the same. I will keep it but I just don't get it. Exact same shirt in my closet fits great and the new ones are tighter. Please LLBean, I love your stuff and everything I own is from LLBean but you are going to lose me if you don't keep up your great quality that you had in the past.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kaysamm Absolutely the best polo
The fabric of these polo shirts is the best weave and finish. They wear like iron, release stains with little pre-treatment and shrink only a little. Comes out of the dryer with no wrinkles. Collar lays flat: no curling or fading. Super comfortable in summer.

I *love* these shirts. When it comes to clothes for work, I keep it simple, and these shirts are the backbone of my warm-weather clothing.
As with pretty much everything from LL Bean, the quality and durability are top-level. I've worn the same shirts for multiple years, and only the darkest colors show any fading, and that's well into the third or fourth year of wear. They are fantastic wash & wear-I simply run them in the dryer for about 15-20 minutes, pull them out & give 'em a good shake, then put them on a hanger. After a bit more time to dry, they're good to go. I've used them traveling, and all but the most determined of wrinkles will hang out overnight.
The fit is pretty good, considering I wear plus sizes. I knocked one star off for the short underarm sleeve length--I do have to regularly pull them down. Also, the fabric, while great (stays soft & very good quality) does tend to develop small snags fairly easily--in my case, it's often from my cats' claws..
This is the perfect business casual shirt, and finding such good quality items in Womens' Plus sizes is extremely rare. My only points for improvement would be slightly longer sleeves and a slightly less snag-prone fabric. Still, the Double L Polos are worlds better than any similarly-priced shirt for plus sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jeanster1 Good quality shirt
I am so glad to find these relaxed fit polo's. I am a 1x and carry my weight in the middle, so these are perfect. They seem to launder well, I had one out of three that had to be sprayed with wrinkle releaser, but that worked. My only complaint is the sleeves are a bit tight. You would think larger people would mean the sleeves need to be larger too, but that seems to be a problem with a lot of better quality shirts from all manufacturers. I would love to see more sizes offered too. The women's sizes are severely limited in colors.

Loving every thing about the shirt. Color, sizing and quality of fabric. A perfect polo in my eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by snapperblue like an old size M
Over the years, standard sizes have changed. Shirts have become tighter in the shoulders and sleeves, and shirts and pants are longer. I understand that Americans are becoming taller, but I'm not sure they are getting thinner.
I always wore a M (and still wear my old ones), but modern M size is cut too slim, too tight in the shoulders and sleeves, and too long.
I tried the relaxed fit M and it is enormous. Then I tried the relaxed fit Small and hurray! I can move my arms without the sleeves binding and the shirt is not so long that it goes way down my hips. I am stocking up on these!

Rated 1 out of 5 by 4DogsCT Incredibly Disappointed
I currently own 5 LL Bean Double L Polos Relaxed Fit size medium. With the spring I decided to order more as I really love this shirt. I love the new Saltwater Blue and added pink and another white one. The relaxed fit has totally changed since I purchased last summer. I noticed they are being manufactured in a different location. The fit is so different than the ones I currently own at least one inch on either side. I actually took pictures compared to two currently owned shirts. When I tried them on I had just changed out of one I own, same size and style. The new ones are snug across the chest and short in the underarm. When I was folding them up to put back in their bags I noticed they are tapered and not straight as my previous ones. I even double checked the style number printed inside the shirt to be sure it matched the one for Relaxed Fit.. I am not sure I will reorder a size up as past experience with the large is it is too big in the shoulders. I am returning all 3 shirts and am very disappointed in the change

Love these shirts, but I do find the fit to be a bit closers than years past. Which, is fine with me, as they are not as boxy. Shoulders seem to be a bit wider, but ok. The shirts wear and launder well. Colors stay fast, no ironing needed, no shrinkage. They feel soft to hand and skin. Not too hot and not clingy. Sleeves are a good length to provide coverage. Not cap, which I hate, and not to the elbows either. I layer them in cooler weather. Bought competitor's polos and not happy with the wear.
Llbean, what happened to red??? How about different colors such as dark green, rust, purples? Please keep these stocked all year!

First of all, I am thrilled that Bean has a relaxed fit polo! These polos are wonderful! The fabric is so nice, I even slept in it and the shirt had no wrinkles in the AM. I wish that more of Bean's Tshirts and Polos came in a relaxed fit. Hopefully some will be made in long sleeves also.
