Rated 5 out of 5áby Nanabean Light weight great everyday shirt
I bought the medium and am 5'1" 130 lbs. It fits nicely, is a great weight and I really like the purple color. I have ordered the green and look forward to getting it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby GardenBookWorm Finally sleeves are long enough!
I LOVE this shirt, and I have purchased it in three different colors. Most woven long sleeved shirts (from LL Bean and elsewhere) just do not fit my body shape. I have a long arms and broad shoulders, so most shirts are tight across the shoulders and the sleeves are too short. Because I have a small bust, going up a size just doesn't work as the main body of the shirt is way too big. This Eastport shirt however is just perfect. I hope LL Bean continues to offer woven shirts in this cut. I would love to see this cut for dressier shirts as well, such as a pinpoint oxford.

Rated 3 out of 5áby HydroJet Looks best tucked in
I really like the small navy plaid pattern I chose. I'm 5'10" with a 38" bust and the M fits with no pulling on the buttons. It is appropriate for both field and office work, for me. I agree with others in that the darts are too severe. It's cut very mom-like and poofs out from the waist, which is why I tuck it in. The collar is also quite loose on me; I have a 14" neck. My real complaint is that the sleeves are too short. They end 3" from my wrists, so I roll them up. I would recommend this shirt on sale or clearance, but it has too many issues to buy full price.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CyclinMama Really cute shirt!
I got this shirt on a whim and am so impressed by it. The greens and blues are vivid and summery without being too bright, the fit is nice (casual but fitted enough for work).

Rated 2 out of 5áby agingtraveler Like the color but not the style.
I ordered the medium in a periwinkle. Nice color and pattern, but though it's my size it looks ill-fitting--nipped in too much in the middle and too long. If I button the bottom buttons it looks tight. Even unbuttoned it doesn't fit right. A larger size would be too big. I've bought LL Bean shirts before and they've looked good on me. But if Bean continues to market this kind of styling, I won't buy the shirts. I believe this change in the styling is a change for the worse. Sorry.

Rated 2 out of 5áby CosmicBlue Very Casual Shirt
I already have two Eastport shirts, one is washed indigo, the other a pink plaid no longer available. I ordered the moss plaid to wear under my green Double L Cotton Crewneck. The color match was good, but otherwise I agree with recent reviewers on this shirt. The collar is large. The shirt looks puffy where it flares outward at the darts. There seemed to be a difference in this fabric from my other shirts. It was already puckered and wrinkled in the seams and looked like it would be an ironing nightmare. It might be fine to wear casually this summer, unironed, with sleeves rolled, but not with my sweater. Thanks to L.L.Bean's great return policy, I've already replaced it with a plaid wrinkle resistant shirt that complements my sweater.

Rated 4 out of 5áby sweatersavvy Attractive shirt
This is a nice looking shirt, offered in a variety of plaids, but I found the neck/collar opening to be too large with respect to the rest of the shirt which fit fine. I'm going to send them back.

Rated 2 out of 5áby lovesummertoo plaid shirt
I was very unhappy with this shirt. The material does not have a soft feel. The plaid actually looks like a picnic tablecloth. Also the length was about 3 inches too long for me. I would have returned it, however, I washed it with hopes that somehow that would help. It didn't.

Rated 5 out of 5áby GolfSwimHike just right
This is a wonderful shirt. I love the triple stitching and attention to details. I'm 5'2'' and 119 pounds and the small fit me perfectly and was very comfortable. There are slight gussets at the sleeves and in back. The weight is perfect for layering under a sweater or over a tee shirt.

Rated 2 out of 5áby Artlovre Very thin fabric disappoints
I ordered two of these shirts in chambray and indigo washed. They fit, they look nice, but the fabric is very, very thin.
I am sending them back.
Also there are threads hanging from the seams, like they missed quality control.
I'm not sure how they would come out of the wash when there is so little substance to them.
I know that cotton has gone up in price and it is difficult to find shirts that are not see-through thin.
I would gladly pay more for shirts that are more substantial.
The extremely lightweight fabric should be part of the description.
