Rated 5 out of 5 by EnglishSetter Mom was always right !
I have been wearing Maine Guide shirts since the 70's as a young adult. Received my very first ones as a gift from my mother and always enjoyed wearing them. I am 6' 1" tall and weigh about 190. The large tall fits just fine with room to layer underneath, the sleeves are perfect and cover my wrists. The green plaid shirt has vibrant colors, the prima loft insulation with nylon allow the shirt to just slip on and off your arms. The wool is not scratchy, but soft. I find this shirt very, very comfortable to wear. An added plus is that the rear half of the shirt, the tail if you will, is longer by 1 inch covering your lower back and keeping you warm. The tall size is not short in the torso which I really like. If this shirt had pockets for your hands it would be the "Cat's pajamas" :) Ordered an additional one in traditional Red plaid. These shirts help make the Fall and Winter easier to deal with, while looking good !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeHfromMichigan Main Guide shirt
My daughter bought me this for Christmas and I don't know why at 58 I waited so long to get it. I love it, it's perfect for Northern Michigan, The Maine green plaid fits in Michigan, I also didn't think I'd like the perm-aloft but it adds warmth and is comfortable, perfect for camp and around the house, I've even worn it in deep winter with a sweater on walks and stayed warm but light enough I believe for the transitional months. The large is what I wear generally and it fit nice, makes me happy. Just would have liked US made but that's not just an LL bean issue.

Warm light jacket/shirt. Insulated for those cold fall hunting mornings. Very packable and good for laying under for the not so cold afternoons.

Rated 4 out of 5 Shirt that works as a jacket
This shirt could (and probably should) be listed under jackets as it is incredibly warm. I had a t-shirt on underneath it when i went out to shovel snow and had to unbutton it to keep from sweating too much. I changed t-shirts and wore it out later, and stayed warm despite the temps being in the mid 20's. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because you have to dry clean it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TomW27 Fantastic Shirt
Fantastic shirt, I have already recommended this shirt to a number of people. It is remarkably comfortable and cut just a little big, which works great to throw it on as a jacket or just an overshirt. I have been wearing this to shovel snow this winter.

Rated 5 out of 5 LOVE this jacket and it looks so nice on him!!!
We "LL Bean" shoppers know that the quality is always top notch and this jacket is just that. I bought this as a gift for one of my "Maine" at heart friends here in South Carolina. Believe it or not, we do have cold weather here! He is an avid hunter and has already worn his new jacket in the woods and was completely warm without a goose bump to claim. Of course, I had to tell him to be sure to hang it outside prior to wearing it in the woods!!! My Dad does this every year prior to the hunt. He loves it and looks like a real Maine man in this jacket! I want one for me now! It is light, yet full of warmth - fabulous gift for a man that is in the woods very very early in the morning!! You will not have any regrets! He is a medium man with broad shoulders and I got him the large and it fits perfectly! The XL would have been way too big. Thank you LL Bean!!! Love to you all from a Maine girl here in South Carolina!!!

Nice shirt. Very lightweight and super warm even when wet. Breathes very well and worth the cost. Looks great, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaliforniaSurfer Exactly what I was looking for
I am a big guy 6'5" 300lbs so I have started ordering the Tall xxl product. The fit is perfect for me not used to clothes actually fitting. I use this as a jacket . No wear t shirts a lot and get hot in regular jackets. Some use this as a jacket and it's great. Warm comfortable and very well made. Plan for this to last a very long time highly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by tzolk Excellent Shirt-Jac
Very warm and sized correctly. I wear a large tall and this large tall was as expected with room underneath for a hoodie. If the sleeves were almost an inch longer it would be perfect. Excellent purchase!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by runofbank Warm, Comfortable,Poor Fit
Very Warm and Comfortable. However after wearing a large tall for a day returned to store as the chest is cut way too big. A large regular is way too short for me and still way to big in the chest at 6'2" 205lb. The medium tall ok in chest but way too small in pits and arms. Great product but very odd sizing.
I ordered a signature wool shirt/jac in large tall. It fits great and is very warm and comfortable.
