Rated 1 out of 5 by LongTimeButNoMore Fabric Quality is non-existent
Just received two of these shirts from LL Bean. My husband has worn these shirts for decades, and I was always pleased (in the past) with the quality of these shirts. Upon opening the package, I noticed the material was lighter-weight than with his other shirts but didn't worry about it since they are, after all, short-sleeve shirts for use in summer. As usual, I washed these shirts before wearing - in cold water, with no bleach, and using my regular detergent. Upon removal from the dryer, I was VERY unhappy to see that the color of both shirts - one grey and the other blue - had "bleached out" in various sections of both shirts. I would've used the term "faded", but since the affected sections are virtually white now, "bleached out" is the closest I can come to describing how they look. I would NOT recommend buying these shirts to anyone, and I will NOT EVER buy these shirts again - until LL Bean advertises that they have changed whoever they're getting these from!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TallLumberjack This Shirt Gets Compliments!
When I bought the first one, I though it was a bit boxy, too open-collared, and a tad heavy. But since owning two of them, I plan to order more. I'm forever getting compliments of how nice my shirts look. They are very comfortable to wear and a little pressing after a wash really improves the look.
I'm 6'4", 220 pounds and I wear a large tall. The fit is terrific. I've tried to find similar shirts elsewhere without success.
I'd like to see a slightly-fitted short-sleeve version and some bolder colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by oneconsumer Good shirt while it lasts
I am in agreement that this is a "boxy" style shirt, but it fits my style of frame well, so for me it's a positive. Nice choice of colors of which I own several... My complaint with the shirt is my beard wears out the collar much more quickly than any other shirt I own. Too bad too because these shirts, to me, get better with age. Once the collar is worn though it is no longer a shirt I'd wear unless I'm doing something around the yard. I guess I could start wearing a dickie to fix the problem, or Bean's could use a stronger fabric in the neck area of the shirt.I prefer the latter!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SFPhoto If it does not fit - Try other models
Oddly enough LL Bean seems to produce excellent garments but the sizing can vary from example to example.
Ordered one of these in a solid color and was too short so returned. Ordered a plaid 2 years later and it was larger (bit too much so but am hoping it will shrink). Both long sleeve.
Wicked good LS fit fine. Moleskin LS was too small.
So the bottom line is if the garment does not fit, do not think all LL Bean garments in the size will not fit. Try another version/model - they have lots.
Hope this helps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Continental60 runs very large and boxy
I have purchased so many long sleeve traditional fit shirts from LL Bean for my husband and received this and it was HUGE. I had to call customer service and have a Med shipped out right away and the large is going back. He's never worn a medium before at LL Bean or elsewhere, but hoping this works as it should. Had to get a different color as my orig was sold out :( It is really full in the body like a hefty man might wear to fill it out. Very boxy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hereistand Just about EVERYTHING: As Advertised!!!
Delivered today. On time. Color: Perfect. Size and fit: As Advertised. Comfortable: You Bet. As LL Bean recommended, I washed it before I wore it but put it on soon thereafter. Loved the feel and comfort plus the good looks of the shirt. Wish I coud wear it every day! Obviously "LL Bean" quality but that's where the "just about" comes in: Can't tell today, next week or next month if it is. But looks like it will wear well..... very well! Just might be BETTER than advertised!!

The shirts are great. They fit great, the colors are great, and I'm very pleased with my purchase. LLBean has never disappointed me with their products. You can't go wrong with these shirts.
