Rated 3 out of 5 by BobG1234 Many Loose Threads
Never laundered and never wore this shirt. I returned it immediately (for an exchange) because of many loose threads. Some were totally loose and just caught under stitching and I only had to pull them away. But others seemed to be part of the stitching and I had to cut them off. When I eventually got tired of that I just decided to return the shirt for an exchange.
Note by the way that a tag in the shirt says "wrinkle resistant" although the online info says "wrinkle free".
Material looked nice, but as I said I never wore it.
(I was forced to say whether I would recommend this item to a friend. So I said yes, but that assumes that the shirt I receive in exchange has many fewer loose threads and that the shirt is really wrinkle free and that it's comfortable.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by JTNWDC Flimsy Fabric
Sorry, folks. The fabric felt really cheap and flimsy, so I had to return it. Too bad, I really liked the aqua blue color.

Just got this shirt. Beautiful, soft fabric. Washed it for the first time and it came out without a wrinkle. Really looks and feels classy. Highly recommended.

by MannyM Good shirt, I want the discontinued color
Very nice shirt. At a clearance outlet in Maine, I found one with kaki and beige lines on a cream background (see photo). I love the color but it is not available anymore. Why?

Rated 2 out of 5 by BobG1234 Poor Immune System (Not So Wrinkle Resistant)
Disappointed in the wrinkle resistance of this shirt. I've washed it only once and took it out of the dryer after it was dry but before the dryer had stopped. It didn't look good enough to wear without being touched up. What's so disappointing is that I have similar shirts from L. L. Bean purchased around 2 years ago which come out of the dryer looking perfect. Why did they mess with a good thing?
Also note that there is a tag in the collar of this shirt attached on only one edge, so that the other three edges are free to irritate your neck. I point that out because the tag does not appear in the photo on the web site that I am looking at at the moment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LindaABC Nice Shirt, but It Wrinkles
My husband has this shirt in three different colors. It's a nice shirt. Fits like it should. But, it has to be ironed to look nice enough to wear to work in a casual setting. There is another shirt on this website--something like the "Kennebunk Sport" that actually comes out of the drier looking wrinkle-free enough to wear without ironing. It's not quite as heavy as this one, but it's great under a sweater. This one is fine; it just needs to be ironed to look nice.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gracie2823 Not exactly no iron
Several years ago LL Bean sold these amazing twill shirts that came out of the dryer looking like it was freshly pressed. We NEVER ironed them and they wore like iron. My husband absolutely loved those shirts and wore them until the collars started to wear, but only after several years of wear. Unfortunately, Bean has stopped making that quality of these shirts. This shirt is thinner and really needs a quick press to make it look as good as the "old time" shirts. He likes the shirt, but the quality is just not the same.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Valpoalum Maybe my favorite shirt, even before any markdowns
I really enjoy this shirt. My only complaint is that this shirt was sold out in every color except for the yellow or I would purchase more. Excellent quality. My wife loves it. Appreciate the gratis monogram and free returns with my LL Bean Visa card. Order before the stock becomes exhausted on the last color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CFB2 The best shirt ever
Not only does this shirt look nice, but it is perfect for traveling. It comes out of the suitcase unwrinkled and stays that way. We're just finishing up a two-week trip to southern Italy (no laundry facilities), and I've washed the shirt by hand four times. It dries very quickly and looks as though it had been ironed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mervich Great Shirt - Little Wrinkle Resistance
I have a closet full of Bean's button front, wrinkle resistant shirts that look professionally laundered out of the dryer?not this one though. This shirt is kinda-sorta wrinkle resistant. Out of the dryer, it is less wrinkly than an untreated cotton shirt, but enough wrinkles to require an ironing. That said, this is a beautiful shirt with a traditional fit. I would not hesitate recommending this shirt to others, especially if one doesn't mind a bit of ironing.
