Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanLover83 Love the sleeves!
I am 5 ft 9 and ordered an XL in the red color. This is the best t-shirt I have ever found! being tall, it is so hard to find tops that are a decent length that don't wind up as belly shirts! This top hit me at the hips, which is perfect! The sleeves come right above my elbows. It is very figure flattering. The v-neck sits directly above my cleavage so I don't have to worry about boobage spillage! Plus, the material is thick! Great quality and no need to wear a cami underneath!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FrumpFighter Still loving this tee! DON'T DISCONTINUE IT!
Since I now have this t-shirt in several colors and came back to get one in black (which there sadly isn't!) I had to take a moment to write another review. The fit is incredibly flattering and I'm not a skinny stick figure. The elbow-length sleeves are PERFECT! The v-neck and length of the t-shirt are PERFECT! The ribbing makes it look so much nicer than a standard t-shirt and provide better contouring as well. This is just the best casual shirt ever. Now please do it in black!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OrlandoMommy PLEASE OFFER MORE OF THIS STYLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is my "go to top". The fit is flattering. The fabric is high quality with a nice "heft". It retains it's shape after washing. It looks great with shorts, jeans, or khakis.
The only down side of this top is the limited colors (and sizes in the prettier colors) and no patterns!
Sadly it becomes harder and harder to find this top on the LL Bean site and the lack equal quality alternatives is nil.
I really hope this top isn't being discontinued as it's currently the only thing I purchase anymore from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuzieeQQ Elbow length sleeves: Please offer more!
Love love love the above elbow length. Listen to the pleas of some of your shoppers and please offer more shirts in this sleeve length!
Vneck is a bit lower than some others, which I prefer. No cleavage but lower than some of the other LL Bean V-necks.
Please offer more styles with this sleeve length..and a few more vibrant colors?.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ThisIsMyNick Nice quality, but...
This top is really nice quality material, but I think it is best suited for those of you who have a nice figure, as it is fitted. I'm sending mine back simply because it is not flattering for me to wear a fitted top. I didn't realize that it was fitted until after I bought it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nytic Shapeless fit
I really wanted to love this shirt, as the sleeve length is perfect. However, the fit is very unflattering. I bought my usual size M in LLBean t-shirts. After wearing it for five minutes, the bottom of the shirt gets very stretched out looking. It is shapeless and very unattractive. Washing and drying did nothing to tighten up the shape.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jayceeaz Great Shirt
I love this style. I have bought many of them over the last few years. I have red, white, two different blues, yellow, etc. However, the only color I don't care for is the peachy orange color. It looks like Halloween. The fit is great. Love the elbow sleeves. I still have a decent figure even though I'm over 65, but my arms don't look too toned any more, so the elbow sleeve is great. The fabric is substantial which I like. I have some in size small and some in medium, and they both fit, except the small is more fitted which is OK. I am 5'7" and 115#.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sandances I put this on and my husband said wow!
I love this. Very flattering. It has a nice shape to it. I am 5'2" and the regular length works well for me. Please make more in some pastel colors. When I asked my husband what he thought he just said wow and raved about how good I looked.

Rated 3 out of 5 by WardingOffWinter Fitted, but doesn't fit like the West End Tee
I LOVE fitted tees, so I ordered 1 of these and 1 West End Tee. They fit quite differently, despite both being "fitted." Perhaps the substantial fabric makes this rib knit feel too tight and clingy in the sleeves and bust. The v-neck is wider but not as low as the West End. Also, the length seems much shorter than the West End. I ordered the "emerald" color, which is more yellowish than the name and photo implied. I would like it better in a slightly thinner rib fabric, long sleeves, and styled more like the West End, which is so slenderizing for curvy figures!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charann VERY COMFORTABLE AND WELL MADE TEE
This is the most comfortable tee I have worn and it appears to be really well made. I usually wear a Medium top/tee and this fit me perfectly in the shoulders and through the bust line. The elbow length sleeves stay in place nicely and are fitted....you could probably wear a long sleeve sweater/cardigan with this tee and it would not bunch up on you in the sleeves. Insofar as the width of the neckline, I found it to be flattering without being too revealing and a smart choice for the very hot weather ahead of us all.
I chose the Thistle Blue color and just love how easy on the eyes it is and gives a cool, clean appearance. I wish that LL Bean would make this in more soft colors, like powder pink and soft peach and aqua mint and pale lavender....I think there would be a lot more sales of these in those colors right now!
