Rated 2 out of 5 by AdamH Collars wear much too quickly
I have had the same experience as so many other reviewers: the crease of the collar wears out too quickly. I have four of these shirts in blue and each one of them has worn out to the point where I can't wear them anymore. I bought two roughly a year ago and the other two about six months ago. I wear each shirt no more than once per week, wash them in the normal cotton cycle, and tumble dry on medium heat.
Keep in mind, any dress shirt collar will eventually wear out from the laundering process. I have had the collars of other brands wear out, just not as quickly as the LL Bean shirts.
On the good side (ie. the reason why I am not giving the shirts one star), these shirts have the best wrinkle free treatment out of any I have owned. They look great right out of the dryer, even better than more expensive shirts.
I called LL Bean about exchanging the shirts, and it sounded like they are aware of the problem and will be willing to give me new shirts.
I would recommend these shirts to a friend and I will continue to buy them myself based on the superior wrinkle treatment. However, I hope that LL Bean can do something to make them last longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SkyKing Best dress or professional work shirt there is.
I just ordered my 17th Wrinkle-Resistant Pinpoint Oxford Cloth Shirt. They wear well and look great wash after wash and still come out of the dryer ready to wear. My favorite quality is I have yet to wear one out. The only reason I have had to order more was due to the ink stains in the pocket.
Thank you again LL Bean for another quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by haybren Best shirt for the money!
Don't let the price of LL.Bean's wrinkle resistant shirts stop you from purchasing one. I am a tall man and not "slim" and the sleeve and neck sized shirts are top notch! I have been buying these for YEARS and have only had to replace two! One was from a stain and one was for a crease rip. There are some in the closet that are 10 - 12 years old and look as good as the day they were ordered. I've never put an iron on any of them but I'm diligent about getting them out of the dryer hot and hanging them immediately. The problem now is I own all the colors and patterns!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeff10 great shirt
good quality-stitching etc very nice, fabric heavier than what you typically get off the rack, after the first wash/wear cycle the shirt was wrinkle free, this shirt is worth the money

by SleepsWithBirdDogs Weak seam?
I've bought a number of these shirts. Recently, one of them tore along the top right side of the back--the seam simply came unstitched. No matter--that particular shirt was probably over a year old. Several weeks later, though, another shirt (same type and size of shirt; wrinkle-resistant, pinpoint Oxford, French blue) tore in the exact same spot. This shirt was essentially new--I had purchased it fairly recently. Since I don't have a protuberance in that spot on my back, I'm force to conclude that this is a workmanship issue. So, when I buy my next pinpoint Oxford, I'll be purchasing it from that company with the misplaced apostrophe in its name.

Rated 5 out of 5 by goose Great Shirt!
I love this shirt! Great looking right out of the bag, looks good right out of the washer and even looks good right out of the suitcase.The wrinkle resistance is wonderful. I pack these for a trip and as soon as I can, I hang them on hangers and they are great to go in no time. I wash them in cold water, delicate cycle and hang them to dry , and it is if someone irons them while they dry. The cotton is substantial and the lines are crisp. The best part is the fit. I have a 15.5" neck and a 36" sleeve, and LLBean has figured out that size is for a slender body. Good job all around.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DrJJR Horrible Collars; Shockingly Bad
While overall I am a very satisfied Bean customer, this shirt is of shockingly poor quality, Unlike the TA 209411 shirts, which are well-made (please make that exact shirt in more colors), the collars on these shirts wear out so quickly. Based on other reviews, I am not alone in experiencing the rapid disintegration of these shirts.
