Rated 4 out of 5 by JimMY5858 Overall Good Quality
Overall good fit, warm, and stylish. Only two complaints is that I wish it were made here in the USA and that the 2 lower pockets above the hip were not fake.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MGS9500 Wrong size, collar label doesn't match bag
I requested a medium. The bag says medium, and the sewn in label with the cleaning instructions says medium, but the collar label clearly states large.
So, back it goes.
There appears to be a mismatch in the true size noted on the collar and the size on the bag and washing instructions.
I wonder if the other complaints about the shirt being too baggy is not due to this happening for other customers. Until this problem is resolved, I would be wary of this order.

by JoshfromMaine Item very different than described online!
Have you ever been to a sporting event where they hand out size XL shirts to everyone? This is the jacket version of that shirt; I saw it in the packaging and knew it was a size "square."
This review is for Item #:TC278259 the Signature Lined Wool-Blend Shirt Jacket, Slim, in 'Coal Dust' size Large. My only two complaints about this shacket (shirt+jacket) are enough for me to return it.
First, the lining is all black, not the beige color in the product photos. Not huge, but annoying as it changes the entire look of the jacket.
Second (and most unfortunately), the description says slim fit, yet it is as boxy and square as can be. This jacket has absolutely zero tailoring.
I'm just over 6 feet and 180 pounds with an athletic build and size 33 waist, and this size Large jacket hangs off my body whether buttoned or not. I ordered a Signature series sweater and button-down shirt in size L and they're a perfect fit.
Will L.L.Bean please start describing the measurements of their models and what size they're wearing?!
Would a size Medium fit? The lack of any slim fit tailoring make me hesitant to even try it, and the fact the other measurements seem to be mostly right doesn't help.
The construction and materials feel as if they're of expected L.L.Bean top quality, but the fit is as unflattering as anything I've ever seen. I might have been able to overlook the lining color change, but to say this is a 'slim fit' is FAR from accurate. I'm bummed but thankful for L.L.Bean's 100% customer satisfaction and return policy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Beanertown Golden Cider, Apples, Crisp Fall Days
This is the perfect jacket for Fall days - for raking and doing outside chores around the house. I wear a t-shirt under it and it is perfect in any temperature - or at least any temperature we've had this Fall, which has been down to the upper 30s F when I've been outside - raking. I do a lot of raking.
I never feel cold in it - I flip up the collar if the wind is going down my neck and that suffices. When I'm cooling down from raking, the jacket maintains its warmth and I don't feel sweaty like I might in a nylon jacket; the leaves that I gather up don't stick to the jacket, and the jacket doesn't seem to show the dirt - though I haven't asked others for their opinions on that score. The jacket fits well - I got a large, and one look from my husband told me I'd better get him an XL, which I did, in the same color as mine. I love the slit pockets. Slit pockets should always be present in any jacket in my opinion, and these are very good. They could be deeper, but they hold my work gloves and other bits of things, and are very nice indeed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ovaltine warm and casual, true LLBean quality.
Now late fall in Switzerland with temperatures around 10 degrees Celsius, this Shirt Jacket feels wonderful to wear over a shirt and a wool sweater. It feels neither too heavy or not too thin, just has a perfect weight. The fabric feels like wool and the dark blue color matches the color on the web. The only down side might be that the fleece lining stretches just to the edge of the opening, but I regard this as a minor and rather aesthetic issue that does not influence my impression that this is a product that I associate with true LLBean quality.

I wear this to class. It is nice and warm in this Chicago weather, but light enough to carry around once indoors.

by Benner perfect shirt jacket
This is a great light jacket for transitional weather. The fit is slim and flattering but not too snug. The wool outer is a little lighter than I was expecting and moves like a heavy shirt material, so it is definitely more of a true shirt-jacket hybrid than just a jacket in the shape of a shirt. I'd almost describe it as a heavy, sherpa-lined sweatshirt in wool instead of cotton. This jacket can work as either a solo jacket in mild cold or a layering piece in serious cold. The other day I was perfectly comfortable standing around in this jacket for a couple hours in the 30s with a shirt and a light vest on underneath.
The warm cider color is perfect for autumn. It especially works if you're a guy like me who otherwise wears pretty basic colors like tan, light blue, and navy. The warm cider stands out in just the right way. The real color is closer to the stock image than the pictures with the model - it's a little darker and more orangey than the model pictures depict.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ActiveOutdoors1 Lined Wool Blend Shirt Jacket
As usual every Fall awaiting the new colors. I own two and just now ordered the Cider color. I am 5' 9" and the Medium fits well. I like how the inner fleece lining insulates the body. Nice touch with the pockets. The earlier versions did not have pockets, however, they did have a leather elbow patch. That gave the jacket a nice look. Love the warm cider color, which will be released soon, but it's worth the wait.... Thanks, Signature!
