Rated 5 out of 5 by Jivabill Comfortable well fitting shirt
Bought this shirt in blue-green to go with a pair of Double L Jeans in the Dark Wash color. The shirt and pants do look very good together. The canvas shirt is quite comfortable, a bit heavier than for example an oxford cloth shirt.
The flap pockets are nice and I especially like that the pocket on my left side has a slot in the flap for a pen or pencil. A nice touch making it possible to carry a pen without fighting with the flap. The button flaps are nice in that they keep what you have in your shirt pockets securely.
I was pleased to find that the color of the shirt is true to the photo in the catalog. I bought an XL shirt and the sleeve length is about right for me which is unusual as I have long arms. All in all it is a nice shirt that will be servicable for a long time I think. It appears very well made.

by Baroose Great shirt BUT the collar is wearing out too soon
I have 4 of these shirts which I bought some years ago and I wear each one occasionally. I love the colors, the fit and the fabric. BUT the collar on each shirt has now worn through in many places. These are the only shirts in my closet with worn out collars. Now I have to replace them. What gives?

This is my first canvas shirt and I must say if is comfortable and fits good thru the chest and sleeve area.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NCmountainwear Not Happy With Fabric Life
I have purchased 4 of these shirts in the past couple of years. My husband loves them for casual wear around the house in colder weather.( i.e. for at least half of the year, they are not worn AT ALL.) This is the ONLY shirt I buy for him that HAS to be purchased in TALL in order to stay tucked in, and also for the sleeves to be long enough...problems related to shrinking. That requires me to spend more for the TALL size, which is my first annoyance. But even worse, I have found that the fabric does not hold up well after a couple of years of wear. It does shrink some, but the main problem is that is starts to deteriorate. The first places holes appear are at the top corners of the pockets. Then holes appear around the area where the sleeves attach to the cuffs, and also along the surface of the collar. Serious fraying also begins at the collar and cuffs and down the front button hole area. He has several other casual, wear-around-the-house shirts that are much older than these canvas shirts, and none have developed the fabric problems that these do. I just threw out one canvas shirt, the first one I bought for him, that was riddled with holes, and have applied iron on patches on the inside of the second one to try to keep the recently-emerging pocket-top holes from getting bigger. They are too expensive for such poor fabric life. If my husband didn't like them so much, I would definitely not buy them again. I reluctantly bought him two new ones in the past month, and have little doubt the same problems will eventually occur, as they did on the first two I bought.. I would give these shirts 4 stars for style and comfort, and 1 or 2 stars for sizing and quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jhawk01 Great Quality & Comfortable
The sun-washed canvas shirt fits true-to-size and fits great. Overall, the quality of the material is excellent, just heavy enough without being too stiff. All of the buttons and seams are well made. After several washings, the color remains the same as the day it arrived. I love the pockets on the shirt and would ask LL Bean to look at increasing the size slightly to accommodate a cell phone. I would recommend this shirt and will be ordering more in the near future.

This is a great shirt, exactly what I expect from LL Bean. The quality and workmanship is excellent. It was well worth the price that I paid for it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Josh1955 Disappointment
This shirt was a big disappointment: a new shirt that looks old--like it had already been worn dozens of times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chirogene It's my second order for this shirt
Last June my wife, daughter and I rented a house in Freeport for 1 week. We toured much of the interesting sights of Coastal Maine, but returned "home" each evening to Freeport. I bought a blue shirt just like the red one I recently bought on line. So now I have 2 of the same type of shirt and I love each of them. Knowing Bean was open 24/7 gave me, my wife and our daughter the opportunity to walk around inside the store at any time we wished to. At week's end we flew back home to North Carolina with lots of Bean bags and great memories of the store, it's very knowledgable staff and terrific weather.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SCBIRDERSWIFE Different fabric, but still great fit.
Great fitting shirt & well made, but the fabric seems to be different. My husband said it was "slicker." Hope it holds up as well as the numerous others have that we've purchased over the years.
