Rated 5 out of 5 by Morepetitesplease New colors
I loved the colors last spring and summer and bought more in the fall. I am disappointed in the color offerings this year. They are so drab. I will probably buy the chalk blue but that will be it. They are my go to T's wish there were more pretty colors.

Trying again to review this shirt. Normally, LLBean quality is unbeatable. This shirt is truly junk. Thin fabric, very wrinkled right out of the dryer, not even a comfortable thin fabric. And funny- the washing instructions were in Chinese and Spanish but not in English. One would assume that a tshirt could be washed in the washing machine and dried. Not sure if it goes to the rag pile or not.
Ordered it at a sale price which was still too much to pay for an essentially non-wearable item. DO not order this one. The pima shirts (one ordered at the same time) are much better (although even there I think the quality is not the same as the ones ordered years ago).

Rated 1 out of 5 by JAcubs High Price, Low Quality
I ordered 4 different colors of this shirt in June 2015. My intent was to wear them alone & under button down shirts. There were a couple of positives, but overall, this Carefree Unshrinkable Tee failed to meet all expectations.
-- size was true
-- wrinkle-free, except for the neck
-- sleeves shrunk up (looks odd when worn alone)
-- neck waffles, doesn't sit flat (looks sloppy as an underlayer)
-- white doesn't hold its color
Especially disappointing were the white tees that turned into an unappealing creamy/off-white color after a few washes. I have many white shirts, including tees, button downs, and sweaters, all of which remain crisp and white.
Overall, these aren't worth the price. I won't purchase this type of tee again.

This used to be my go to T shirt. Usually I would get the V neck version. But lately the length has gotten too long for me. I guess it is good if you are a taller person but I am 5'4". I guess I am stuck with the Pima T shirt which is shorter but I am not fond of that fabric because it stretches so easy and starts to bag out on the body. This shirt needs to be offered in a petite size.

I like the fit of this tee and its durability; I also like the rich colors that don't fade in the wash. This shirt washes and dries easily and doesn't get those weird folds or creases that lesser quality tees get. The thing I don't like is the length of the sleeve--it's a little too short, almost like a cap sleeve. It hits at an unflattering part of the upper arm. So I wish the sleeves provided a bit more coverage, but overall a fantastic workhorse of a tee. These tees last a veeery long time.

This is a great basic t-shirt, well-made of high quality fabric, and consistent good workmanship. This shirt is longer than the other Bean Tees, thank heaven, and the fabric is substantial. The color palette could use some work, but at least I can rely on this shirt to fit and flatter, and not fade.
The pima tees are much too short but I love the color 'petal'.

I have been buying the carefree unshrinkable t shirt for years and they have been everything L L Bean says about them - terrific fabric, don't shrink, retain their shape, don't stain and fit like a glove. However, the last two times I've ordered the quality has taken a dive. Some shirts were sized incorrectly - one marked x-large was the same size as one marked medium. I normally buy x-large, but the newer t-shirts are larger, so I had to downsized to a large, but they still don't fit like my older t-shirts, which I've had forever! The fabric doesn't retain its shape like before and
seems different and definitely stains now. Overall, I am very disappointed and don't plan to buy these t-shirts any more.

I have been trying to find quality clothes for my family so we dnt end up buying all the time. Only few brands are left who make quality clothing. LL Bean is one among them. Love the weight of the material and colors. I hope they last long and I will buy more if they hold up well.

I have these in every color that LLBean has made almost. They are as LLBean says. They don't shrink, stain, or fade. I have had some for years. I love them for exercise, walking, etc. I love them with shorts and jeans and in cool weather with light jacket over them. Please do not stop making these shirts. Another LLBean find.
