Rated 5 out of 5 by EMomPA I bought this as a gift. Was well received.
I bought the lined blue corduroy big shirt in XL. It is a very pretty color with a muted, coordinated plaid lining. It looks both attractive and comfortable. It looked good on my friend and fit her perfectly. She is an active, outdoors person so this gift was appreciated, and I am sure it will be well-used--particularly in the spring and summer.

Love this shirt. I am 5'2" and 130lb. I like clothes loose. I wanted to order a Petite M but they were out. After reading other reviews I went ahead and ordered a petite S and it fits perfectly with plenty of room for a shirt or two, or my ultra light down vest under it. I have washed it once and it still looks great. I got the lavender. It is vibrant and beautiful. I don't want to take it off. I want to get another in another color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Seattlejanie not as warm as expected
After living in a mens small fleece lined flannel shirt all winter, I needed another warm shirt to tide me over when my old favorite is in the wash. I would have got another in a different shade, but there are no more small sizes. Ordered this instead - the flannel is not what I expected. It is thin & not brushed, more like light weight cotton shirt material or perhaps a jersey knit sheet type fabric.
The cut is boxy, it looks as wide as it is long on me & I ordered a small. Not sure how it looks so nice & long & drapey on the models. Maybe it would look like that on me if I were model thin!
On a plus note, the red lining on the black jacket I got is a nice subdued color. It looks just as plum / or perhaps raspberry as red. I love the thick wale corduroy, the black is more of a slimming shade than a lighter color imho - which is a good thing considering the boxy cut of the shirt. It is warmer than a regular cotton button up shirt, but not half as warm as my fleece lined flannel shirt. On the recommendation, it's good if you are looking for warmth = to a sweatshirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by VermontJane Best Shirt Ever
I have never written a review in my life, but my love of this shirt has prompted me to share my thoughts. I have two lined "big shirts" and I absolutely love them. I am just 5' tall and bought the Petite Medium size, and the sleeves are perfect for me. I read other reviews about sleeves being too short, but the Petite fits perfectly. The colors are great,the corduroy is heavyweight and the lining is soft. I am 100% thrilled with my big shirts!

Rated 5 out of 5 by lashopper8 roomy cut good for layering
What I like best about this is the roomy cut in the body and sleeves. I can layer a sweater or light sweatshirt underneath with comfort. It's not for those looking for a sleek look. Petite Small fits well on my 5'0" frame (perfect sleeve length!). I'll get a lot of use out of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elise64 So pleased with lined comfort corduroy big shirt
I've considered purchasing a big shirt from LLBean, but wasn't sure exactly which one to pick. I wanted a bright colored big shirt that would be attractive and practical. I was lucky that the bold orchid color was still available by the time I made my choices. It coordinates with many of the tops I own - both previously and in my most recent purchase. Bright colors really set off my skin tone, so bold orchid was a great choice. It's very comfortable, and it works nicely for me as a mid-weight jacket. I am again pleased with this selection from LLBean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ostrichgirl Buy this shirt!
For three years, I have looked at this item in the catalog and thought about buying it. This year, I ordered it in black, and I wear it almost every day! We live in the mountains in California where it gets chilly and sometimes downright cold during the days, and it is so comfy and warm without being too hot .. I use it over a tee shirt, usually. It is just comforting to wear. So far, I have bought another one for my mom and one as a gift for my friend. Believe me, you won't be sorry .. I can imagine I will be wearing this shirt for a long time, and look forward to getting it in another color. And I love the fact that I can get it in petite. I normally wear a size medium to large in most clothes, and a medium petite is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WWWBWA Very Large Big Shirt
I ordered the French Lilac and the Collegiate Blue and love the colors. As others have stated this really is an oversized big shirt. The fit of the two materials together is right on so I don't have a problem with that. My only complaint is that the sleeves are too wide, excessively wide. Ok, I also wish that these shirts weren't as boxy as they are. I'm going to my tailor (again) and see if he can fix these two problems.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ScotiaParisCanucks Comfortable & Want One in Every Colour
I have a couple of these (flannel lined ones) and plan to eventually get every colour. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these shirts. Every woman should own at least ONE!! I also have two of the unlined ones (just as nice) but I do prefer the lined ones as I'm always cold. (The unlined ones, I will use more for warmer days.) These shirts fit larger than your normal size, so I would suggest going down a size, if you are normally an XL, get an L, or if you're a Medium, maybe go for the small....but that's just me. LL Bean has a great return policy if the fit is not right, so not to worry!! I'm in Canada and the shipping is FAST! I've ordered stuff on Monday by phone and it's been at my doorstep Wednesday evening...not sure how they do that, but they do!! : )

This shirt fits well & has a lovely feel, but I wish there were a choice of lining colors. I bought the black shirt but, because it comes with a red lining that I decided I really do not like, I'm going to return it.
