Rated 2 out of 5 by pcsqueen Sleeve Length Problems
LL Bean makes some wonderful, long-sleeve men's shirts - and my husband owns many. Unfortunately, all of them are dress shirts because they come in specific neck/sleeve sizes.
My husband wears a 16.5 / 32 dress shirt. Even a Medium in this shirt (and other Bean S/M/L/XL long-sleeve sport shirts) is about 1.5 inches too long in the sleeve. While he can roll up the cuff if he's being very casual, if he's wearing a jacket or sport coat, that's not a feasible option.
I liked the teal blue color in this shirt so much that I actually contemplated altering the sleeves. After a bit of thought, however, I decided that shortening the cuff placket wasn't going to work and it was far too much work to reset the shoulder seam.
Here's my suggestion, dear LL Bean: offer your long-sleeve sport shirts with sleeve length options (short, medium, long). I'm quite sure that my husband isn't the only man out there with a thick neck and stubby arms!

This is a very nice shirt. I bought the yellow and blue for my husband. The colors are beautiful, but the fabric is a bit on the flimsy side. I thought it would be more like a poplin or oxford cloth weight. Still, it's a nice shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Murpwholovestees Twill wrinkle resistant shirt wonderful!
I bought one of these a few months ago for my husband and he LOVES it. Nice, heavier weight fabric (heavier than dress shirt weight), very soft cotton, and good sizing. He's a slim size Large and it fits well with sleeves that are okay on his 35" arms. We've only washed it once so far, take it out of the dryer immediately and hang it, button it up, etc. and it's just fine. Looks ironed #which neither of us will do anymore#. So I'm back for another color or two -- they're truly beautiful shirts, and just look a bit more casual than the wrinkle resistant dress shirts he wears lots of already. Love that fabric treatment! Keep up the good work LLB.

My father-in-law loves this shirt so much I am buying my third one! He loves the material, the quality and says it washes well. The first one is now two years old and I think it still looks new.

I've ordered 3 "traditional fit" shirts and so far have received 2. They came "slightly fitted" and "trim fit." Neither fits.

The style, fit, and color were fine. The fabric is a bit lightweight. But after washing and drying, and being careful to take it out of the dryer as soon as it stopped, the shirt is too wrinkled to wear without ironing. Another shirt I bought in the same order was heavier material and does much better in the "wrinkle resistant" category.

I got 2 of these shirts and they and not wrinkle free like most LL Bean shirts. I wear all LL Bean shirts but do not recommend these, you will look rumpled after a few hours.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Vee5 Wrinkle resistant, ha!
I am not very pleased with the feel of this material; it feels a bit cheap. I have a function on my dryer to prevent wrinkles and it works for all other shirts, but not these. I bought four of these shirts for my husband and I'm slightly annoyed about all the wrinkles. I still need to run an iron on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by travellllller Excellent quality
My husband LOVES this particular shirt. It is his favorite type of shirt to wear to work. Wash after wash it looks brand new. The colors have never faded, they look ironed right out of the dryer, and are very comfortable. We buy XXL TALL and they are a great fit and we are thrilled to have this size available without it being excessively huge. We have had problems with different expensive brand shirts shredding on the edges over time (the material would ravel on the folded areas) and then looked terrible- this has not happened anywhere on any of the LL BEAN shirts. Which THRILLS us. Because it is very annoying to drop a bunch of money on shirts and then have them start falling apart after about 15-20 washes. So far so good with all of these LL BEAN shirts- they continue to look brand new wash after wash. In our opinion these shirts are worth every penny and look top notch!

Rated 5 out of 5 by YouMayCallMeMrBean A Very Durable and Comfortable Shirt
I have worn this every week since I bought it and found that it hasn't shown any signs of it. It keeps me warm inside an office environment that is subject to variable temperatures depending on what the air handlers want to do that day. While warm, it also keeps me cool and dry. It's like the shirt understands homeostasis. I recommend this for anyone working in an office setting or for occasional formal dinners for special occasions.
