Rated 5 out of 5 by GREATTSHIRT BEST T-SHIRT EVER
This t-shirt is extremely soft and comfortable. It washes up perfectly and the sizing was exact. I love the length of the sleeve and it is not too hot to wear in the summer.
After purchasing, I have gone back and ordered several more.

Rated 3 out of 5 by narie45 Hate the elbow length sleeves
The tee shirt would be great if it had regular short sleeves. The fabric is good quality and color, and the fit is perfect. I really love the scoop neck, in fact that is why I ordered the shirt. But those sleeves bug the heck out of me. I will more than likely shorten the sleeves because not only do I find them unattractive, but they are uncomfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gladys120 Great quality
I bought the navy blue and the white in this t-shirt. I bought size L because I prefer my clothing roomy. They were a little too roomy, but I kept them and dried them in the dryer which smallified them just enough.

Rated 3 out of 5 by GramaGin Shrinks!
I thought I found the perfect shirt - elbow sleeves to cover my flabby arms, scoop neck instead of crew which chokes me, soft colors instead of garish ones, so I ordered them in every color in size medium, my usual size.
But they shrink with every wash, getting tighter under the arms and shorter and shorter.
So I ordered one in large but it gaps at the neck.
My question: you advertise unshrinkable knit shirts for men. Why aren't these unshrinkable? I don't want clothes that require special treatment in the wash or hand washing or hanging to dry (which doesn't help, by the way, and leaves them hard and wrinkled).
Bean - please see what you can do about the shrinkage before I order these again. (After I can no longer get them on)
Sign me - a disappointed customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by skyer Pima Cotton Tee, Elbow-Sleeve Scoopneck
This is a lovely shirt. The material is smooth and satiny. The butter and petal colors are soft and clear. Butter is a creamy, soft, light, almost golden yellow color - not too bright and certainly not garish. Petal is a very light, attractive pink color. I love both of them.
This shirt is a perfect length, exactly as described. I'm almost 5'8", and really appreciate this length of shirt. I am so glad the shirt is not longer!!
I've washed them multiple times, and the fit is still great.
The great pima material lends this shirt not only to casual wear, but to dressier outfits as well.
The sleeve length is wonderful, and the scoop neck is great with or without a necklace. The LL Bean v-neck tees partially hide my 16-17" necklaces, whereas they look great with this shirt.
It's a great shirt, that launders well - from washer to dryer to closest. No special care required - what's not to like. :-)

Well made. Attractive. Longer sleeve really makes it unique. Hope it washes well. Love the scoop neck which I normally can't find.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeckyinOhio Pretty Tee but too short
I love the scoop neck and elbow length sleeves as well as the magenta color, but am returning this tee due to the short length, as other reviewers have commented. I was also surprised that the pima cotton fabric is not the same thickness as previous Bean tees I purchased many years ago and still wear, but would have ignored this fact if it had fit to my liking.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ChiYogi Shrinks to a Midriff Top!
I ordered two of these shirts certain they were going to solve all my problems of needing a form fitting black tee to wear with skirts in the workplace, but with sleeves long enough to cover my tattoos. The idea was right, but the shirt was not. I actually ordered two of them in L. I normally wear an XL and am quite busty, but know that LLBean shirts tend to run big. It was very big! The sleeve length was right on, but the sleeves were baggy and the shirt itself was a big square. I'd read the other reviews about it shrinking to the right size so I tossed one in the washer before even wearing it. It came out in half its size! I am 5'6" and have a very short torso -- it was above my belly button. The sleeves stayed the same, the shirt stayed just as wide, but I lost 2"-3" on the torso!
The material is very nice! I wanted to love this shirt, but could not. I want to love your shirts, LL Bean, but they're so short and wide! I'll keep trying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deena1978 Awesome fabric, wish it was longer
My title says it all -- the fabric is beautiful and washes like a dream, but the length feels quite short and boxy. This would be my dream tee, my holy grail, if it were just a little bit longer. 2-3 inches maybe. I know some people like the length -- so why not also offer it in a tall size?

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiltingmeme Fantastically Designed Tee
I have been buying tees for many years from LLB and have always been satisfied with them. This tee is exceptional in that the neckline is lower, but not revealing. The new twist with the sleeves is great for coverage, but still cool. Perfect drape. Thank you for this tee.
