Rated 5 out of 5 by Pamunkey consistent quality
I have purchased several of these shirts, both LS and SS over the years. I have several comments to try and be helpful to other Bean customers. There have been several comments about the sizing. Yes, I found that instead of a medium, I use a small for this shirt. Order one size down. Once you know that, it isn't a problem. One person said it needed to be ironed. Yes, that's true, but it's cotton and doesn't have the anti-wrinkle chemicals embedded. I have no problem whatsoever ironing. I like the feel of the cotton. There was a comment about the colors fading badly. I'm sure that happened to that reviewer. But over the years, I've purchased different batches of shirts, and after following the laundering instructions, I NEVER had a bleeding of the colors. My own personal comment: I love the two pockets. One for my reading glasses, one for my cellphone. My only negative is I wish they were button down collars.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Suzita Color bleeds
Nice shirt, but the color bled all over my husbands skin and also his shorts. When he showered, the washcloth turned blue. He likes the shirt so hopes this will clear after laundering. If not, will return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DanInMi Great Fitting Shirt but Wear Out Quick
I've ordered several of these shirts. I liked the yellow one the best but they no longer have it in yellow. The other colors are all good as well but they wear out quite quickly around the pockets and collar areas with holes forming. They start to look pretty "well worn" and for the price you'd think they would last a bit longer. But still a shirt that I like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Africa2016 Short sleeved canvas shirts
My husband is very, very happy with this shirt. The L.L. Bean quality, as well as, large pockets, the fit, and the many colors to choose from, are superior to similar shirts found in other retail stores. I can't say enough about this shirt. With Free Shipping and 20% off at this time, I couldn't resist ordering two more for Christmas presents. Thank You!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Mermaid134 great pocket features
My husband actually asked me to let LL Bean know how much he likes this shirt...Hard to find short sleeve shirts with 2 pockets AND a sleeve for your pen!!!! This shirt has both! My husband wears glasses so needs one pocket for his case and needs a 2nd pocket to carry notebook & pen (or whatever). So many times we have wanted to order him a shirt from LLBean but could not find any with 2 pockets - long or short sleeve.
The true test of this product will be to see how long before the collar wears out - as this has been a problem on most of the shirts we have ordered for him in the past few years. The collars fray way before he has gotten much wear out of the shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BellNJLLBeanShopper Great Shirt - I have 4 in total
I recently purchased my 3rd short sleeve version of this shirt. I also have 1 long sleeve. I love the over sized pockets as I use an Otter Box Case on my Samsung Galaxy S4 phone and the pockets are large enough to hold it. It's smart enough for a business casual office or to use on hikes because of its over sized pockets.
My only wish is that it came in a slightly tapered fit. I weigh 155 pounds and the medium size fits OK, but I could use a tapered version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lbnm I Have Bought Many of These Great Shirts
I love these shirts since they look sharp, have double pockets and wash and wear beautifully. I keep going back to these since they launder so well and maintain that nice looking neat appearance. I have bought these in Natucket teal, sand and basil colors and keep going back to these for that great look_ always fits all occasions.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TNmtnguy Nice color, but faded with streaks after washing
The color and overall shape of the shirt was as advertised. I was disappointed how streaky the color washed out after one wash, per instructions. For example, there are now 2, 6-9 inch 1/8 inch washed out (nearly white) streaks on the front of the shirt. Note, the shirt is a color, not white. Maybe that is normal, but not what I expected. I am returning the item and not ordering another shirt of the same material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TallLumberjack Amazing shirts!
I have four of these and another on order. The tall size fits my 6'4" frame very well. They are soft and very comfortable. They look good right out of the dryer, but even better if you press them. I've had complements about how I look when I wear them at public speaking engagements; complements on the shirts, not so much on my speaking! My only wish is that they offer a wider choice of bold colors. The color selector for these shirts must prefer the colors found in prepared mustard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TwoIron It is just the BEST casual button shirt
I have purchased several of these shirts and will buy more. Well made, long enough tail to stay in jeans. My only wish is that Bean would bring back the coral dust color to the line.
