Rated 5 out of 5 by EU10 Soft and warm
My husband loves this robe so much he would wear it to work and out to run errands if he could. This robe is thick, soft, smooth cotton flannel that is very warm and comfortable to wear around the house. It's not a "towel" robe for just out of the shower.
In terms of sizing, my husband is 6'2" and weighs about 185 pounds, with a 34-35 sleeve length. I got him a Large-Tall, which fits him perfectly - he can wrap/tie it snugly around him, the sleeves are actually long enough, and it hits at mid-calf which is the perfect length. LL Bean's sizing seems off because I bought him a medium regular flannel shirt in the same shopping trip and it was WAY too big for him.
I don't know how this will hold up after months of wearing and washing, but we'll see. So far it seems very well-made and durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ricatlover warm and large
bought for my husband who normally wears XXL shirts. got extra large and he joked that large would have fit. It is very warm,soft, not flimsy. I was glad to see there are belt loops which was not apparent on catalog. he was even happier it arrived sooner than expected. just in time for our next northeaster.

My husband loves this robe as it is warm, cozy and fits true to size and he says it feels like an "old friend" as it is so comfortable. . I am writing this review to acclaim Bean's top notch customer service. We were at the flagship store recently and found a print at the home store that we liked. We tried to order when we were home but it was not listed online. The rep. transferred our call to the home store and they found the print and are having it shipped to our home. What fabulous customer service in this day and age!! We will continue to be one of LL Bean's faithful customers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kocomojoe Men's Chamois Cloth Robe
This robe is replacing a flannel robe from a competitor that no longer sells mens clothes. My only complaint is that the LL Bean product falls just below the knee, where the one I got 25 years out of, was mid-calf. If you keep your house cool, you will need to wear long underwear, or pajama bottoms to stay warm enough. I am six foot, slim and purchased a med-regular. The weight of the material is similar, and I assume that it will be long wearing. In my opinion, it is about six inches too short.

I see you have a chamois robe for men. Why don't you have one for women? I loved the one I had years ago, and I would love a new one. Please bring back the chamois robe for women.

Just received this robe after waiting for it to go on sale. Had to settle for a colour that was not my first choice, however when received, it was great. I try to rely on reviews for sizing information, however for some reason these reviews do not seem to be accurate anymore. Most for this produce you will see say that this robe is over sized and they needed to order a smaller size. Well, I went with my instincts and ordered my normal size and it fit as it should. The quality is excellent, but the "proof in the pudding" will be when it is washed. I am enjoying my new robe and expect it to last like the Chamois cloth I purchased in 1975 and it lasted until the collar wore out 20 years later.

I got this robe right after Thanksgiving and loved it. Two months later the left elbow ripped. I would have hoped for higher quality than that. Was good when it wasn't ripped but I'd be hesitant to get another. I couldn't get another anyways since they don't have another in my size, so at least LLBean took it back.

After reading reviews I ordered a small instead of my usual medium. I wear a 40 Reg coat and the small was too tight through the shoulders. Reordered in medium and it fits fine. Past time for Bean to address their problem with product inconsistency as evidenced by various product reviews.
