Rated 3 out of 5áby Stoneworks Lovely soft cotton!
I purchased this tee in the cobalt XL. Love the colour, love the neckline, love the sleeve length, love the quality of the cotton, BUT it is way too short in the body length! It barely comes down to my hip area. I have never had this issue with other LLBean tees. SOOO disappointed. Please make this style longer or offer it in a plus size.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Sandances Fit is too boxy
I really like the style of this shirt - on the model. I really like the fabric and colors but I tried 2 different sizes and neither fit right. It was too short but the scoop neck was too low and overall the product was very boxy. It was not flattering on me.

I purchased just one of these tee's and back for more... The ONLY complaint I might have is that I am "petite" and the "elbow length" sleeve might look better if the sleeve length were just a tad shorter... Would it be possible to have this in a "petite"...?? Thank you ahead of time...

Rated 3 out of 5áby VTAYLOR Liked this shirt at first,
I have ordered six or more of these shirts. Wore them all Summer and loved them. The last two I ordered were about two inches longer than the ones I had been wearing. I have never put these shirts in the dryer but now see where they have gotten shorter and wider. I have canceled the last one I ordered that was on backorder. I love the longer sleeve and scoop neck. So sorry they won't work any longer!!

Rated 5 out of 5áby hawaiibeaner LOVE this shirt
This shirt is exactly what I wanted--and I have had no problems whatsoever with shrinkage. As many other reviewers have noted, the elbow length sleeves are perfect for those of us who want to keep our upper arms concealed now that we're of a certain age. The length--low hip on me--and relaxed fit are perfect to hide a couple of figure flaws. My husband made a point of sending me an e-mail from his office to tell me how pretty I looked the first time I wore it (he got distracted and forgot to tell me to my face before he left home). All in all, this is a big winner in my estimation. I'm about to order two or three others. Please keep this style and add some more earth tones in your later catalogs.

I like the feel of the cotton, the elbow length of the sleeves. I would like this same scoop neck shirt in earthy, muted colors -- browns, tans, olive green, interesting shades of color.

Rated 4 out of 5áby lakehouselady new style is nice but could be more flattering
Love the scoop neck and elbow sleeves. The pima cotton is beautiful. But the body is too short too boxy and looks a little sloppy. Couldn't you make this style just a little form fitting and a little longer. The style is a step up from your basic pima tee but could be really outstanding with a few tiny changes.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Peppermoon Shrinkage problem
I adore this style: stylish but not trendy, modest and Pima. They are comfortable and cool. I owned about 14 off them, some wit 3/4 sleeves from another vendor. When I saw they were offered by L.L. Bean, I bought two for a trial run - they fit when I got them, they did not fit after I ashed them. I will not return them because I feel that is somewhat like stealing but sincerely hope you will find another manufacturer and/or Pima fabric that does not shrink. They are a real disappointment and certainly not up to your usual standards.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Womn2Blame Too short after three washings!
Why can't someone sell a cotton (pima or otherwise) shirt that doesn't shrink when laundered according to directions? I ordered this shirt in three colors, and loved them the first time I wore them. Beautiful, rich fall colors, and the fabric had a lovely feel. Love the elbow sleeves, too, and wish LL Bean offered more of them! After being washed just three times, all three shirts have shrunk in length to the point where I feel dumpy wearing them. I prefer my tops to cover my tummy, at least partially, and these are now closer waist-length. I'm probably going to return them, because I'm tired of paying for clothes that just hang in my closet.
I want to add that I've been a frequent customer of LL Bean for many years, and I seem to live in their clothes. It's just that I've seen a definite change in the quality of their products in the past year or so. It makes me sad!

Rated 5 out of 5áby thebestbeachnet Love this shirt
I love this shirt. I think it's very flattering and comfortable. I know some other people have complained about the fabric, but I haven't had any problems. Maybe that's because I always wash my 100% cotton clothes in cold water and hang them to dry. Since the shirt is knit, it doesn't need ironing. I liked my first one so much I've now ordered it in multiple colors.
