Rated 5 out of 5 by Pants Absolutely the best wrinkle free
I am disturbed by some of the recent reviews noting a deterioration in the quality of these shirts. I'm hoping this is an anomaly because these shirts are amazing and I don't know what I'd do without them! They are by far the best wrinkle free shirts I can find. I have tried other brands because there aren't many color choices in these(please add more colors!) and none of them compare to these shirts. They wash and dry like a dream. I have never once had to use an iron. Plus, my husband says they're very comfortable. For the ease and quality, they are incredibly reasonably priced.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Banker48 No more Tattersall for me
I have purchased two of these shirts annually for the last three years. I wear each shirt once a week, after a year they are worn out. I am fine with them lasting a year. My problem is with my most recent purchases. The fabric is not the same pinpoint fabric, more of a cross between pinpoint and Oxford cloth. Secondly the tattersall pattern was made up of finer lines on the old shirts. This pattern is more of a check than tattersall. I will never purchase this shirt 262253 again. It is not the same shirt that was available a year ago.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Jamie2000 Love LL Bean shirts but....
I love the initial quality of these shirts. I need tall sizes (37" sleeves) and have a difficult time finding other shirts that match the feel and wrinkle-free appearance that LL Bean offers. Unfortunately, I also find myself replacing shirts after 12 months of use. The shirts seem to wear prematurely (holes, fraying, fading) on sleeve creases, cuffs, and collar.
The same cannot be said for the "Sport" shirts that come in XL Tall. Why can't the quality of the Pinpoint Oxford match the quality of LL Bean's other shirts?

Rated 2 out of 5 by Alaskaqualityshopper Nice shirt initially,falls apart after a year
THe shirt is a very nice shirt initially but fell apart at crease lines after a year. Not what I'm used to with dress shirts, and not how LL Bean shirts used to wear. Lately a common problem with all Bean dress shirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HappyhumanBean "Will not give you the shirt off my back"!!!!
Just got this shirt recently. Even with the numerical sizing, I got a perfect fit. The looks and fit are great. First time I wore it I received numerous nice comments. I'll be very happy for a long time if it lives up the standards of my other Bean Shirts!

Rated 2 out of 5 by ReluctantShopper7 Wonderfully wrinkle free but wears out very fast
On the plus side, this shirt looks terrific at the end of the longest days and comes out of the dryer beautifully.
On the negative side: We purchased a blue pinpoint shirt in January 2015. My husband has worn it maybe 30 times since then (doesn't wear long sleeves in late spring through mid fall). The collar has holes along the fold all the way around. The same wear is happening on the cuff. The body of the shirt still looks great.
This is not the first of these shirts we have purchased from LLBean and every one of them has had this happen so this one will be returned for them to check out. The tattersal shirt we purchased in 2014 actually ripped on the crease of the sleeve as well.
Bottomline: I would have given these shirts a 5 star rating for looks and being wrinkle-free but they wear out way, way too soon. If you're in need of a shirt that looks as fresh at the end of the day as it did when you put it on in the morning and you don't mind that you'll have to replace it within a year, these shirts can't be beat (I've tried and the only one I found that comes close is double the price).

Rated 1 out of 5 by Canton02067 What is going on?
For 10 years been buying this shirt. Loved it. Last two orders have been a disaster. The shirts are ill-fitting, the cuffs fray quickly, color and style selection reduced, and always out of stock are some of my complaints.
I now pay slightly more to have a tailor make a very similar shirt that fits me perfectly. However I get the styles I want and the quality is what I expect.
How can LLB continue to not listen to their customers? I once was all things LLB. All they would have to do is read these posts!

by DavVal Collar is a full size off in sizing.
I just received this shirt in Pink. I had to order Traditional Fit because it doesn't come in Slim Fit in this color.(Go figure.) I expected it to be roomy but the 15-1/2 collar measures 16-1/2" ! That's a full size off! I'll be returning for a refund.

Rated 2 out of 5 by TexasShelby Collar Splitting at the Seam
After less than a year of having these shirts, my husband noticed the collar began to form a tear or slit at the seam. They've been washed in permanent press and pulled right out of the dryer at the minute it's done. Such a shame because these are LL Bean's only thin, wrinkle-free dress shirts that he can tolerate in Texas heat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WorkingMother3 Sharp looking shirt....we still iron but OCD
This is a sharp shirt. I do iron but we are OCD with wrinkles. I would not iron for casual wear but feel it needs ironing for my husbands office environment. With wrinkle resistant it takes just a couple minutes to iron and much easier than other shirts. LL Bean shirts size large or 16x15 fit my 5'1" 185lbs to 190lbs husband well.
