I really like this shirt. I have one in cream with red stripe, and one in Night. The fabric drapes nicely, the sleeves are long enough that they don't bunch up at the elbow, the neck lies flat. The torso is slightly shaped, but not tight-fitting. The solid color one goes equally well with casual wear or dressier linen skirts or pants.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SacCalMom Wonderful shirt
This is a great shirt! I bought the blue stripe and it is comfortable, classic and fits really well. The fabric is very soft and holds its shape. I highly recommend it and hope they add more colors soon. A blue with red stripe would be fun too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnefromCanada More colour options please
Love this shirt because of the fit. It is tapered around the waist. Very flattering! The medium was a perfect fit for me - I'm 155 and 5,9. I wish there were more colour options than red and blue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by MoreBeanTheBetter Not like the model...or even close.
Ugh...seems I'm the only one so far that doesn't love this top. I wanted to, I really did! I went with the Navy, looking for a classy Hepburn style knit top but the top I got was ill fitting. Nothing like the look on the model. Well, I guess if I would have used a clothespin to tighten it in the back, it might have looked like that but without clips, it didn't. Returned it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yorkiemama1 Love this top!
I bought the cotton/modal 3/4 sleeve boat neck top in the solid navy and black colors and loved them. Then, when the teal stripe and yellow/orange stripe came out, I had to buy them also! I wear these tops with slim khakis to work, sometimes with a scarf and sometimes not, and always receive compliments. Simple yet elegant. Wash on gentle cycle, cold water, toss in a low temp dryer until damp-dry, and hang. Perfect results every time, no ironing necessary. No shrinking either.
I am 55, 5' 5", 32D bra, and 115 pounds - small fits perfectly.
Would LOVE to see these tops in additional colors, particularly solids!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ilovecotton I love this shirt
I bought the green and white striped size Medium.....and only did so
after reading one reviewer who said to size up, that she thought this
ran small. I'm 5'2, 135 pounds and I generally would buy a petite
medium or a small regular. I went ahead and decided to size up and
don't think this shirt runs small at all. It fits perfectly in the length
and it might be a bit fitted in the sleeves, so if a woman had heavy
arms, this is going to be tight. I don't have heavy arms and I like that it's a snug fit. The boat neck is a bit wide but I haven't washed
it yet so I'm sure it will shrink just enough to look even better. I
love the color. Not sure about the multi stripe....doesn't appeal to
me as much. I think what makes this shirt special is the color and the fabric is excellent. I just wish LLBean would use printed
labels for in back of the neck because every label they sew in
irritates me. I have to neatly use a seam ripper to pull out each
thread to remove the label.
I'm very happy with this purchase and feel this shirt is especially
flattering! Good job....Wish it came in more colors with solid

Rated 5 out of 5 by kobedoo Great quality!
I was very pleased with this shirt. The quality is fantastic and the styling is modern. Th fabric is not thin, like some llbean items. I have worn the shirt to work every week since I got it about a month ago.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NonnieJ Runs small
I gave this shirt 3 stars because of the pretty color and how soft it felt. But, I am returning it since it fits so tight on me. I generally wear a L or XL and since this did not come in XL I went with the L. Big mistake, I looked like I had been poured into it. Maybe for ladies who are not broad chested.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greentea35 Soft, comfortable, and flattering!
I am very pleased with this top. This was the first item I've ever ordered from LLBean Signature and it exceeded my expectations. I am 123 lb. and 5'6, and I ordered the XS. I prefer fitted clothes (although not clinging, tight clothes), and this shirt is perfectly fitted and flattering. I am a mother in my mid-30s and I prefer stylish clothes that are also comfortable, but not "old lady" clothes!!!! So I was thrilled by this top. I've received compliments on it too. Thanks LLBean signature!

Rated 4 out of 5 by TexasGirl3 Super comfortable, but inconsistent sizing
I initially bought this in the emerald teal stripe. Overall, great fit, and the fabric is really soft and comfortable too. In fact, I liked it so much that I went back and bought another one in the solid bright navy color. However, when the navy one arrived, it fit noticeably looser than the striped one did. At first, I thought maybe it had been labeled with the wrong size tag, so I called customer service and they shipped me another one to replace it. But the second one in the bright navy color was the exact same size as the first navy one had been. I think I might end up keeping the navy one anyway, though I'd have liked it better if it fit the same as the first shirt I ordered. Overall, I'd recommend this item, but beware - it seems the solid colors run a little bigger than the stripes!
