Rated 5 out of 5 by CBmemd The best tneck at LLB
This is the best turtleneck I have bought at LLBean in some years. It is soft and has a very nice sueded finish. Comfortable and warm. It is more expensive than other tnecks, but worth it because it doesn't shrink up (in the sleeves) like the cheaper ones. This items is on sale which probably means that they will discontinue it. PLEASE make more of these excellent turtlenecks! I got the lavender heather, which is a lovely color. Several years ago I got one in blue and it has worn well and the sleeves are still long enough (in an XS size)

Rated 5 out of 5 by FCSMasterGardener I definitely recommend this top!
Color, fit, material softness all true to description! I particularly like the fit, not clinging, not boxy, a feminine silhouette, coupled with beautiful colors, one cannot go wrong.
I am a size 4 or 6, like my clothes well tailored, but not tight. Size "small" suits me well.
It looks well made as my old LLBeans mock turtle or turtle necks. They have served me well, lasting over 2 decades! I wear them in winter, to bed for neck warmth. Their colors and shapes are pretty much intact still, quite amazing!
So, purchase these without pangs of anxiety, sale price makes them even better!

Rated 5 out of 5 by diamondqueen Completely satisfied
The best thing about this shirt is the fit. I am 5'4" and weigh 111 pounds, and I ordered an extra small. It fits very well -- not baggy and shapeless. I had read that the fit is narrower and it is -- flattering yet not clingy. The length is mid-hip but not tunic length. The cotton is thick and soft. The Sea Thistle heather is a pale heathered blue-violet -- pretty and quite versatile. I had to tug at the "mock neck" at bit to make it "mocked" rather than turtled, but it stayed stretched out nicely... The cuffs and inside seams are finished. This appears to be a well-fitting, attractive, quality item and I am counting this one as a clear win.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sklou should have stayed with usual size
I usually wear a medium, but ordered a large based on previous reviews and, even after washing, the shirt is too big. The sleeves come down to my knuckles and the body is baggy. It is a warm and cozy fabric.

This shirt is soft and stylish: the long length is compfy, warm and flattering, and the unique narrow stripes are eye-catching with beautiful colour (I have the light blue heather stripe). I am always on the lookout for simple, fancy patterns . I will order more colours because the stripe patterns are pretty and slimming, and the material is amazing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bookcollector 3Peat Buyer Viva La Difference!
Everyone seems to have different needs & mine are satisfied by these T-necks.The lighter weight of the fabric should not be assumed to mean "flimsy",as it holds up after multiple washing & wearings.I've paid double for a "RL" t-neck that became totally out-of-shape very quickly & unappealing.
The description says "slightly fitted",it probably should say just "fitted", and I appreciate the fit.Almost all other T-necks are boxy & loose.There are enough of those others already (including by LLBean),and these offer an alternative fit..
These are long in body (low hip) and longer in sleeve,and I appreciate not having to pull down the cuffs constantly.
It would be a shame if this style is eliminated because it offers another choice in fit,and the suede finish is sooo comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Margcox Love these turtlenecks!
Turtlenecks are turtlenecks, so why pay $30 plus when they are a dime a dozen anywhere else? It is because these are so comfortable!!! So soft, and the neck is perfect. I usually choose looks over comfort, but these shirts look great and feel wonderful. I literally can't wait to jump into one after they pop out of the dryer.
I don't normally write reviews and I might be going senile. But, I am writing in hopes that LLBean will add more striped colors. They have three beautiful ones, and then a scarey, orange motif one. I certainly would buy more of these turtlenecks if they offered them in more striped colors!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SomeWhereOverTheRainbow Too thin, small and clingy.
I bought the gray heather scrunchneck to go along with the purple orchid heather fleece lined hoodie. The colors are beautiful!
It runs small and the fabric is very thin and clingy. I will be bringing it back, as well as bringing the fleece lined hoodie back (see my hoodie review). Very disappointed!

Rated 4 out of 5 by OlderLady7 Nice weight material Turtleneck TA265003
I really like this turtleneck, the material's weight is perfect for winter. I did have to order an Extra-Large size when I normally wear a Large. The reason: the shoulders run small in length & the bust runs small. They are made for the small busted women. The Extra-Lg fits fine in the bust & shoulders, but the length of the arms and the tee are too long for me. I can deal with the length of the arms, but this tee falls at the lower part of my hips, more like a coat. I like my tees a few inches below my waist, they are more flattering at that length, when you are my age. As I am no longer a young lady. I'm now in the elderly range, with a slight pear shape, at least that is what this Turtleneck Tee makes me look like. I can tuck it into my slacks or jeans, but I don't like wearing my Tees like that anymore. Maybe LLBean needs to carry a few styles for us older/elderly ladies too.

Rated 2 out of 5 by M206 Too long, too tight, too flimsy
This shirt fits differently than the many other T-necks I have purchased from LLBean. It is cut longer and slimmer, and the fabric is thin and clingy. If you are long waisted and like to tuck in your shirts, this may work for you. For me, an average sized 5'4" and a non-tucker, this shirt is ill fitting and unflattering. Too bad, as I do like the colors and pattern, but I will be returning it.
