Rated 4 out of 5 by albqnm So far, so good
I just received the shirt last week, so I'm evaluating first impressions. Construction quality, seams, and material are fine. Colors - black/white - are clear and bright. In fact, I would rate this shirt a five, but for one industry-wide flaw: the sizing.
I am, or was, 5'8" before I began shrinking. I weigh under 150 pounds. Forty years ago I bought shirts in medium sizes. Shirts were sized by chest, neck, and sleeve lengths, and I fit comfortably into the middle of the medium range.
Today's vanity sizing is ridiculous. The shirt I received is termed a slim-fit. I race bicycles, and the Italian-cut jerseys are a slim fit; My shirt is not. I don't want competition-cut shirts, but I could weigh 175-180 and still fit into this shirt.
It looks fine, and I won't return it, but be warned that slim is meaningless in a consumer market where an "average" physique includes men my height who approach 200 pounds.

I have to come back and write a second review if I may. I took note of the Gunmetal color at first, and did not really like it. I just received this color a couple of days ago, and I have to say what an original blend! It looks fantastic with dark navy jeans! Well, just proves looking at just a photo doesn't do an item justice sometimes! Thanks Signature!

Rated 5 out of 5 by TallSkinnyGuy Perfect fit, great looking shirt
I love these shirts. I own three of them! I have a very hard time finding shirts that fit my tall, thin frame (15.5" neck, 38" chest, 35" arms). The Tall Medium in this shirt is a perfect fit. The patterns are really good-looking, too. Thanks, LL Bean for a great product!
Note that this is a lightweight shirt. I wear mine in all seasons, but i usually add a sweater in the winter.

Can't get enough of these shirts.. I am after the colors. So nice! Been collecting these since the Signature line was released. Can't wait for Spring of 2014 to be introduced! Slim fitting shirts and still the material moves with you. Lightweight and cool. You must iron after a wash, but the result is fabulous! Medium slim is what I collect. 5' 9" tall. 180 lbs.

I was highly disappointed in the quality (fabric weight) of an item in the LL Bean Signature catalog. Had I seen the shirt in a brick and mortar store of any kind, I would have put the shirt back on the shelf after seeing the fabric. I returned the shirt to LL Bean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mattva Good fit and feel
Bought this shirt over others based on reviews that it had a slimmer, more fitted cut. I wasn't disappointed - the fit is slim and tailored, no bagginess around the waist. I'm 5'7", 150#, with a slim/athletic build, and the small fits me perfectly. Material and color are very nice as well. Would definitely buy it in other colors patterns. L.L.Bean - make whatever template you used for this shirt your default!

Lovely soft fabric with a gently worn feel.
Colors were muted and well matched. I bought this shirt as a birthday present for my 21 year old son. He was very pleased with it, and has worn it a number of times already, and has received many compliments.

A well fitting shirt, nice material. Doesn't look quite like the photos on the website because it hasn't been worn in, but I expect it will look great after a few wears. The material is nice and light, so you can wear it year-round if you like.
