Rated 5 out of 5 by thatwombat Cuddly, Soft and Comfy
What can I say that hasn't already been said? Love these big shirts and always look forward to a new season's offering as I have several from years past. They last and last so I do not buy to replace- just to have a new color or two or three ;) Managed to get the dusty lilac and am very pleased with it- although I tend not to like pastels for fall/winter, this has some gray undertones to make it not Easter egg springy looking.
Am considering another- maybe the orange- cannot go wrong with this shirt for comfort and casual wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BonneyLakecustomer Wonderful shirt
I just received my comfy shirt and I love it. The fit is perfect I am a size 14 to 16 and the large fit perfect, enough room without looking like I'm wearing my husband shirt. I ordered the periwinkle blue and it looks just like the color in the catalog. One word describes this shirt, yummy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SJenni Initial review of this shirt....
Just received the Sail Orange and wanted to write a short review; would like to write again after it's washed and worn for a while.
I read other reviews before ordering - sizing was an important issue to me. Seeing that it seems to run larger, I ordered a large and it does fit. I wanted it to be large enough to fit tees and turtlenecks under. It will definitely work. I even considered re-ordering for a medium, but probably would run tight in the bust so am keeping the large. I love to read reviews about the colors but not everyone does, so want to say that the Sail Orange is brighter than a Burnt Orange, but not gaudy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by basketwoman You call this Brightwater Blue???
I have 3 of these shirts, and I love them. I love their colors. However, I gave this one a 1 star because of the color. This was supposed to be a darker periwinkle, which I love. When it arrived today it is the palest blue that I have ever seen in my life. I'm thinking of returning it. I'm really bummed!

I don't do wordy reviews. Suffice it to say this shirt is awesome! I now have three.

Rated 2 out of 5 by UrbanHiker LL Bean's color descriptions strike again
I bought the "washed periwinkle" shade of this shirt. On my computer monitor, and for everything else I have _ever_ bought in "periwinkle," this means a very light shade of bluish-lavender, which I love.
Fast forward to receiving the package. The shirt is LIGHT BLUE. There is not a single hint of purple anywhere in the fabric. Only under incandescent light, the most unreliable source of all, might you for an instant believe this is "periwinkle."
I like the shirt and I don't hate the color, so I'm keeping it. But please, LL Bean, buy a daylight bulb and use it when you formulate your oh-so-creative color descriptions?or stick to red, green, blue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by frankcat "Camel" is not! More like a light greyish taupe.
*Excited* to order this shirt in camel - a classic neutral that I thought would quickly become a go-to staple. I have several of these in different colors and live in them. Shirt arrived today - the color is definitely not camel!! Sort of a washed out light greyish taupe color.Not sure if I will keep. I like these shirts overall, but the color representation is not accurate. Disappointed!!!! Giving a 3 star rating based on the color issue, ordinarily would give 5 stars. (PS - This item always runs large - size down if in doubt.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by Gram42 sleeves shrunk
I love the comfort of this shirt. Before I washed it, it fit perfect. After several washes the sleeves shrank so I have to wear it with the sleeves rolled up because they don't go down to my wrists anymore--I ordered an XL. If it came in long/tall it would be better for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by senlin I understand "big", but this is HUGE!
I just received 4 tops I ordered in my usual LLB size, which is an XL. They all fit me perfectly, except this one! I get that the fit is supposed to be roomy, but this is almost falling off of me. It's at least 5" too big in the hips (which trust me, are not the narrowest part of my body), and the sleeves - the sleeves are so long that they cover all but the ends of my fingers!
I'd send it back for an exchange, but I wouldn't have a clue what size to order instead, so it's just going back.

Very versatile, beautiful color and fabric. I own two so far and would love to own more. Great over a tee or turtleneck for almost any occasion. I do think it would be better without the pocket, makes it look a bit like a man's shirt if you ask me. But I can live with it!
