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!! : )

Rated 4 out of 5 by Havelargedogs Comfortable
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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ScarlettTN sleeves way too short
I bought size Petite XS while I usually wear S for LLBean jackets. The waist is perfect but sleeves do need 2 inches longer. After washing, the cotton lining is kind of loose or puffy but overall it didn't shrink. I like the fabric, the color, the waist size and the quality, but the sleeves are just weired.

Rated 5 out of 5 by squirrelfan Soft soft soft
One could quite comfortably wear this shirt all day and then sleep in it at night. The fabric is about the softest I've ever encountered. Both the corduroy and the plaid flannel lining are cushy soft. The styling is nice too. It does run a bit large, advertised as "relaxed fit." I wear size 8-10 and originally ordered the shirt in size M but had to exchange it for a size S. The S is still plenty roomy. I should have bought this shirt years ago!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Baxy1 Wonderful Winter Shirt
I live in Central Illinois where it is cold/chilly 5-6 months of the year and this shirt is very warm and comfortable. I purchased the black in XL and love the dark pink contrast in the lining and sleeves when rolled up. I am watching for a holiday sale so that I can order another.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LongtimeBeansfan Corduroy Lined Big Shirt
I just received the lined corduroy big shirt in blue and I love it! I had been somewhat concerned that it would be too big and therefore sloppy looking but wanted to try one because many of the reviews raved about how soft and comfy it was. I wear a Large and Bean's sizes usually fit me well. This shirt is no exception. It is roomy but the sleeves are a perfect length and it fits nicely over a thermal driver's shirt. I like how it is lined and the flannel used. The fabric is truly wonderfully soft and comfy. The blue color is a little brighter than I thought it would be but is really pretty and goes with a lot of my t-necks. I'm looking forward to a cozier winter now.
