Rated 5 out of 5 by Taotaosmom Comfy wonderful shirt
I just love my Big Shirt. The "flannel" lining is very light and not very fluffy, but that is ok as it isn't then too bulky. It is super super soft and comfortable and if it had a hood I would never take it off.
I did find that the edge of the seam of the collar has frayed out where it is sewn, after about six months, and might have exchanged it, but mine is black, and it appears that no black is on offer anymore.
So I am living with my slight fraying, and hanging onto this, one of my favorite fall, winter and spring pieces of clothing.
The new colors are pretty, but please LLBean, not all of us want teals, purples and pinks. I wish you'd offer colors like black, red, navy blue... primary basic colors that are less "in this year, out next year". Please. As this is just such a comfy shirt and I'd like another.

Rated 4 out of 5 by EcoMa Comfy but not real stylish
Its big and its comfy just as its name says. I'm 5'4 108 and bought the XS in the green. It fits like an old, oversized shirt. Its really soft and warm. The color is not as deep and vibrant as I expected, more of a velvety, faded spruce green. It seems well constructed. I think I'll mostly be wearing it around the house or for doing yard work. Its not going to make me look like the most fashionable mom at the school. I picture myself feeding chickens and gathering eggs in it. It sure is comfy though. It would be nice if it had side pockets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by fey22 Runs a big large and extra long...
I really wanted to love this shirt but even though I bought it to layer over my turtlenecks it is still too large. And it seems to run very long as well and I'm tall. If this helps, I am 5'8" and a solid 145 lbs. The shirt itself is beautifully crafted and the lining is quite nice. Wish I had ordered in the proper size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WestCoastGalOregon Additional Sizes Please
I have this shirt in black and absolutely love it. I also have several of the unlined shirts, as well. They are so comfortable, always look nice and are great to throw on as I run out the door to run errands. Plus, I never fail to get compliments. I see the red lined shirts in small, medium and large will be available in January. I am hoping they will also be available in X-small and X-large for those of us in these sizes????? If your size is available, be sure to grab one at this fabulous sale price. You will not be disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Furrycatlover So comfortable & practical
I have the unlined corduroy "Big Shirt" and love how it feels, fits & wears. I had been looking for a lightweight jacket & I saw the lined (not in fleece, thank goodness!) corduroy "Big Shirt" in the catalog and felt it was the answer to my search; and it is! The XL is roomy and comfortable with layers under it. The spruce color is "to die for" and it washed like a dream-no shrinkage. You can roll it up in a ball and it doesn't wrinkle so travel in a suitcase is NO problem. As long as L. L. Bean carries it, I will always have at least 1 lined corduroy big shirt.

Rated 1 out of 5 by 49er Disappointing
Soft it is. Soft to the point to being limp. No interfacing anywhere in construction to give it some structure. True to size. Not as red as red should be. Not worth keeping even if on sale. Highly disappointed and returning post haste.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TraceyCanada Perfect for a Chilly Fall Day
Warm & cozy and washes up great; good as a coat on a chilly fall day or as a layer for the colder days. The sleeves are a wee bit short on me but I love the shirt so much I'm not sending it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by maplescones Soft fabric, comfy fit
I am 5'4" and 130 lbs.and usually wear a size small in t-shirts and mediums in sweatshirts/jackets. This shirt in a Large (Petite) is just right as a comfortable big shirt to wear over turtlenecks and cozy long sleeved shirts. The sleeve length is perfect for me, as my arms are on the short side. The shirt comes down to about the top of my thigh, so it's not excessively long. I wanted to be certain that a corduroy big shirt would accommodate layers underneath, so I am not sorry I bought the Large!
The corduroy fabric is incredibly soft and comfy to wear. The flannel lining is not thick, brushed and fuzzy soft like one would expect for pajamas. Instead, it is quite thin and smooth. But it seems to be a decent quality fabric and hopefully it will be nearly as durable as the corduroy seems to be. I love the red color and the beautiful complimentary colors of the plaid lining. Thank you for including a few traditional colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SouthSanJoseGirl Doesn't Fit Talls!
I bought one of these shirts on sale for my 5'11" daughter but unfortunately the sleeves were just too short! We were both disappointed. The red color was beautiful, very rich, and the corduroy was so soft. She especially liked that it had the lining because she lives by the damp, chilly Northern California coast and it would've been a perfect over-shirt.

Just got this lined shirt in royal plum and the color is absolutely beautiful! The fit is great! I wanted something to wear over a t-shirt in cooler weather that is a bit nicer than just a zipped hoodie....this is perfect!
