Rated 5 out of 5 by RightHereInMaine Already my favorite shirt!
The fabric in this shirt is heavier, almost like a light denim or canvas, and I love it. It's comfortable with or without layering underneath. Plenty of room in the sleeves (I hate those skinnied versions of shirts with tight sleeves!). Great colors, great fabric, great stitching details. Great fit and feels good wearing it!
Got two of them in different colors, along with a Katahdin Iron Works shirt. I'm a happy camper now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by elbarto Nice Sport Shirt
It's getting very hard to find shirts with two open pockets, but a similar shirt I bought from Bean a couple years ago had the sleeves shrink on me so I was a little hesitant to purchase one. My fears were groundless as the sleeves have remained long enough for my monkey arms after repeated washing & drying. The shirt looks good and is very comfortable. The only improvement I can think of would be to make the pockets a little deeper. L.L. Bean has come up with a winner in the Lakewashed Sport Shirt and I hope it remains part of their inventory for years to come.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Josh24 Great fit but needs buttons
I like the shirt a lot is has a great fit. I agree the sizes are consistent with other bean shirts, and that it might be better with buttons on the collar. The material of the shirt is very soft and breathable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by tatortots Just what I wanted
I love this shirt in so many ways. It's very comfortable and I bet it gets better with age. I love it with jeans (I went w/sea salt). I'm glad I went with the fitted version and also a smaller size than I usually buy from other companies. This way it fits perfect (I like a close fit as well as wearing it untucked). My minor issues are that it's a little square at the bottom and that, like another reviewer stated, It does not have collar buttons. I needed a "tweener" seasonal shirt and this one I love,

Luv this shirt. The color has some "pop" to it which I was very pleased with. Goes great with jeans. I'm a 42 long with a 34 inch waist. I bought the XL long- slightly fitted. I like my shirts loose in the upper body yet a little tight in the waist. This was great, although it could be tighter through the waist. I wasn't expecting too much but once I wore it I realized how much I liked it. Definitely a 3 season shirt!

Rated 2 out of 5 by DanS Sent this one back
The first one I recieved had a button torn off, loose in the package. LL Bean was more than happy to exchange it for a new one The second one, ok I actually had a chance to wear it.
I just was not impressed by this shirt Someone said this was flannel-like and I didn't find a thing flannel-like about it. I realize it's not flannel, but it did not feel like a comfortable fabric to me. It just felt "slippery". What's up with that?
And the sleeves were way too long. While it may sound picky the "pencil slot" in the left front pocket was nearly impossible to access, unlike some of the other shirts LL Bean sells with this feature.
The good things, double pockets and (thankfully!) NO button down collar, but that wasn't enough to prevent this one from going back.
That's why two stars. Not everything was bad, but enough bad things to warrant using LL Bean's return policy.
Sorry LL Bean! This one isn't a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DocxRon Great shirt need more colorways/patterns!
This shirt is a great cut/fit and has double breasted pockets which I love, but the only modern and appealing pattern it came in is the lakewashed buffalo. I absolutely have no problems with this shirt whatsoever, I will note it is a little loser than some of their other medium button downs, but in a good way.

This "Bean" shirt is of them same quality we all have come to expect. The color of the actual shirt is a bit "brighter" than the picture show, it remains a nice shirt.i

I was attracted by the strong pattern.
Wearing it is a dream. I'm an XL-T and it is generously cut for a man of my girth (38). The 100% cotton fabric is very soft, comparable to the Bean flannel shirts I adore. But it's not thick or bulky. Perfect for layering.
It's reasonably priced. You really can't go wrong with this comfortable long-sleeved shirt if you're a man who enjoys comfort in a northern clime like me.
