Rated 4 out of 5 by Madriver7 Not a true elbow sleeve
This is a great T-shirt. The material is substantial and of great quality. The v-neck is flattering and the shirt fits great through the shoulders. My only quibble is that the elbow sleeves don't go to the elbow. They stop about 2-3" above the elbow joint. I'd prefer a true elbow sleeve. I think this shirt fits better and wears better than the Supima elbow sleeve scoop neck and would like to see it offered in lots of colors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by KarenFromJackson Shoulder problem
I am 5'6" tall, 124 lbs. I ordered one of these tops on clearance in the red color. According to the size chart I am a Small, but some other reviewers had said these tops run tight, so I bought a medium instead. It turned out to be a bit big; I wish I had gotten the small. But the real problem is the way the shoulders are cut. A couple other reviewers had commented that the shoulders are "weird" and I know what they are talking about. I have somewhat square shoulders, and this top is cut for a person with more sloping shoulders. On me the garment pulls up toward the ends of the shoulders and doesn't lie smoothly. The fabric is nice and I would like it except for that. So if you have square shoulders you probably won't like this top.

I saw this tee online and liked the elbow length. Bought 3--navy, red and blue. The fit is excellent, skimming the body but not too tight with a good amount of give. The V-neck hits just right and the banded sleeves give this tee a trendier, hipper look. One request to LL Bean is to stock petite sizes and add more colors. For reference, I'm 5'5" 120 lbs and purchased XS regular.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MichtoKy Runs a little large
I fall between a size S and XS in LL Bean clothing. This shirt was described as slightly fitted and I saw that other reviewer said it tends to shrink, so I went with the S and have washed it and put it in the dryer several times. While the sleeves are snug, the torso is still pretty baggy on me and makes me look like I have a paunch. Still, I like the color and other things about the shirt, so I may get another one in an XS. For reference, I am about 5'6" and 125 lbs.

I'm a pretty solid 2X and all the shirts & coats I order from LL Bean are 2X. The sizing on this T shirt is really off. I ordered two of these shirts in a 2X and they were too tight, before even washing, so I exchanged them for 3X, which I felt should give me plenty of room. When they arrived they fit pretty well but with no room at all for shrinkage. Unfortunately, after their first washing (cold water, tumble dry on low) they shrunk so badly that I'll have to return them both. Before the wash the measurements were 26 1/2 inches in length and 24 inches wide. After washing they shrunk a full two inches in length and an inch in width. Strangely they shrunk more in the front and less in the back. I'm very disappointed in this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by livinglite A FAVORITE TEE Thanks LL Bean
I love cotton rib-knit tops where ever I can find them. LL Bean has a WONDERFUL version. Ultra soft, great thicker comfortable fabric that holds it's shape well and is not so thin you can see through it. Very flattering, hides bulges. I have and like the striped tee with neck and sleeve color highlights and also the solid colors. I was VERY happy to find them again this year in colors I do not have, I guess others like this tee so much they have most of the colors. So for them I'm always a supporter of more colors. Great sleeve length. LL Bean read these reviews and keep this tee around for a long time!

Rated 3 out of 5 by marannstar Nice fit and fabric but odd color red
Liked this shirt in terms of fit and fabric but the red was an odd color, maybe just based on personal preference. I returned it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sfteacher nice shirt, more colors please!
I really wish LL bean could come up with some colors that were a bit more original-softer and grayed out. lavender gray, blush peachy pink, fawn, off white, dove gray, soft blue green and or periwinkle. A peacock instead of a turquoise, and a raspberry instead of a hot pink or red would make the shirt so much classier. The shirt is a perfect style and length with a flattering v neck. I just don't like any of the colors offered to match my beige, gray, black and navy skirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Run6014 Unique finishes
I bought the navy blue and white version of this shirt. The white trim around the neckline and on the sleeves contrasts perfectly with the navy blue. This shirt is unique, which is why I purchased it.
The elbow length sleeve is flattering for those of us who are aging and whose upper arms aren't as well toned as they use to be.
Finally, this shirt fits perfectly. Overall, outstanding quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MyPinkHouse Superb in every way
I bought these last year and was extremely pleased with them, so purchased new ones this year, praying they hadn't changed them. They are still silky smooth with a beautiful fit, with the elbow sleeves making such an elegant, dressy look. Literally, you can take them out of the dryer and not see a single wrinkle, which is almost unheard of for cotton t-shirts. I do agree with other reviewers that they could be a little longer. The only disappointment was the limited color choices this year, especially compared with last year. I can only hope they will add back in more colors next year, because I will certainly be ordering them.
