Rated 4 out of 5áby NSBeangirl Very nice shirt
I ordered this shirt in Brodie tartan. Love it. Comfortable, very nice fabric - crisp but soft to wear. It looks nice and feels nice. Love the deep red of the Brodie tartan. I think it was true to size, but not a really "fitted" shirt - it has good shaping as a ladies' shirt should. If you like plaid, it's a nice feminine version of a plaid shirt.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Sadietally Wrinkle-Resistant Cotton Poplin Shirt, Plaid
I ordered several of these shirts. I like color and the material however the fit is not great for me. The ladies fitted XL is to small and normally all XL fit just fine. I wish they made this shirt in a relaxed fit. I really love the colors. I would not recomend this unless you are after a smaller fitting shirt-

Rated 3 out of 5áby MABUNNY Doesn't fit like others
I ordered this cotton poplin shirt in the floral design and I love it. Got the Sea thistle color, but it is running much larger than my other size S's. Sleeves are 2" longer and back is also 2" longer. I don't know if it is mis-sized, but am ordering an xS now. I really want to own this shirt, so wish me luck! I can only recommend to a friend if she allows for the uncertain fit. I will review again when the other size arrives.

Rated 1 out of 5áby JP2121 Disappointing Deep Rose Gingham Poplin Shirt
I'm usually a medium, but I read the reviews that this gingham cotton poplin shirt ran small so I took a chance when only large was available. It, however, made me feel like my proportions were wrong.
The bustline seemed to fit well - not bad I thought (since I bought it on sale and used my $10 off coupon. I do love a good bargain). Then I saw the shoulders were dropped at least 1" lower than mine. Not too bad. Then I saw the bust dart seams were well below my bust. That really was the clincher... this had to go back. I like the look of a woman in a man's shirt - even if the shoulders are too big, but darts; no, that won't work.
I then realized I wasn't really happy with the thin poplin - it was stiff too. Some of the sizing probably would wash out and soften it a little, but... this was no iron. I don't know what they do to make it no iron, but I'm not a fan. I like the real feel of cotton. It gets softer with age. This didn't feel like it would get softer.
I also was expecting deep rose to look pink, like it did on the website/catalog. This color was neither red, which I really (really) wanted nor pink. It was like faded red.
If they do this shirt again, why not make a unisex red gingham shirt (like a traditional German shirt) in a more substantial Oxford weight cotton. Something with a nice "hand" to it. Make the gingham check smaller too. I think that's more interesting or use a couple of sizes - one for the main shirt and a smaller size for inside the collar and cuffs. That kind of detailing is very "smart" looking.

Rated 2 out of 5áby MaineCoast Too small, too fitted
Size large fits like a medium - and it's too fitted to wear open, over a tank or tee. Also, there's too much fabric under the arms (another review also mentioned this), so it sort of balloons out at the underarms.
This shirt doesn't fit the same as my other L.L. Bean shirts. Am returning it & won't order another. Love my other Bean shirts, this is the first one in 20 years with a poor fit.

Rated 5 out of 5áby CarolCola Love the look & feel
I bought the Ayrshire tartan ( I live in Ayrshire Scotland & had to have it!) It has lovely purple & green tartan colors. I wear it layered over an LL Bean T shirt in purple or green with some green jeans & it looks great. I don't think this shirt will ever wrinkle & the colors stay fast through washing.
I also bought the blue and strawberry tartan shirt to wear over blue jeans & it looks terrific as well.

Rated 5 out of 5áby OfficialPreppyAlumna Could this top be any more perfect? I think not!
I just LOVE this blouse! It looks so fresh and crisp -- I got the aqua colored on (forget what L.L. Bean calls it!), and it's so bright and cheery. The fit is pretty true-to-size, and it fits well with a bit of stretch to the fabric. So perfect for Spring and cooler days of Summer!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Execprivilege1 Perfection Achieved
I purchased this shirt and was amazed at its fit, fabric and design. You can't beat the quality of this shirt. I'm 5' 4" and 135 lbs. I purchased the Farquharson in size medium. The shirt collar is perfect for those of us who like our collars to stand up. Pair with jeans, khaki's or slacks for any occasion. I'm back to order a second shirt in a different color.

The material is nice and smooth. Stands up to multiple washings without ironing. (Must be removed from dryer immediately and hung for the best effect) I love the coloring and style.
