Rated 2 out of 5 by Snarkie 2 stars for LLBean, not for the shirt
The ones I bought at least 10 years ago are showing their age. I'm settling for white, it's the only one in stock. It's mid August, time for the fall selection, why hasn't it been reordered?

This relaxed fit polo is great in just about every way....love the fabric, looks great on, comfortable fit....just one complaint. It is a little too long for those of us that are short-waisted. Would love a version that falls at "high hip" or perhaps make it in petite sizes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AthenaAlso Perfect except for the fit
I found the quality of these polo shirts to be as great as other LL Bean shirts I've ordered but I lost in the guessing game of ordering the proper size, so I'm swimming in all 3 colors that I purchased on July 26th. Since I have more LL Bean knitted shirts in Small than XS that all fit the same I bought Smalls this time. I reasoned that since I've been buying bras one band size up for comfort (they seem to be made as small for their designated band size as other clothing is being made larger) then a Small polo would fit me well.
They're so terribly large that I hadn't bothered washing & drying them this time as I always do before assessing fit. Even though they're not supposed to shrink I'm going to try leaving them in the dryer the full length of the cycle before I make that decision because I like everything about the polo shirts but what I see in the mirror.

I purchased two of the relaxed fit double L polos this year. Navy and white, and I love them. I was at one of LL Bean's major competitors and tried on their polos. No comparison. LL Bean's beat them hands down. The fit is better than any I have tried on anywhere and the material quality is great. My only complaint. Keep them in stock! I want to buy one, but there are hardly any colors in my size. Have more colors and more of the size you sell the most of.

Rated 4 out of 5 by INdigs Not all colors fit the same
I ordered a white relaxed polo in a small and was happy with it's fit. I like the relaxed fit much better than the more fitted style polo which was small in the bust and then too big in the hips. So, I ordered another relaxed polo in a true blue color. It was much smaller in the bust and too tight, than the white one, so unfortunately I had to send it back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by WalkingInWoods Why send emails if you don't have them in stock???
I have worn these shirts for ages so obviously like them. I need to replace & restock. BUT.......despite receiving an email today about how wonderful they are, I can't get them because LLB doesn't have them! New colors would be great IF I could get them. Please let us all know when you have them available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by varbizu Love these polos - wish they were in stock!!
I have been buying the plus-size Double L Relaxed Fit polos for years - I'll buy 5-6 every year or so, and I wear them until I kill them (oil splatters, paint smudges... you name it)... but the past two years, these shirts sell out so fast that I haven't been able to replenish them!! I'm down to two - black and pink - and they are looking sad, but I refuse to get rid of them until I can replace them. I am a willing and loyal buyer of the plus-size relaxed polo - please stock more of them so I can buy them!

Wish you would keep more black and navy in stock. I have not been able to get a black one this entire season.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SueDC Advice about fit
A lot of reviewers have commented about the fit of the relaxed vs. tapered fit polos. I'm 5'8" and 158 pounds, and carry some weight at my waist. The relaxed fit polo is generous at the waist, so it ends up to be slimming in effect. On my "thin" days (under 155), the trimmer fit polo is also flattering. And there's a real difference. If you have an hourglass figure, get the tapered fit. If your waist is nearly as large as your hips, the relaxed fit will be more flattering.
And for everyone, these are the best quality polos around. The fabric is soft and beautiful, and they hold up to dozens of washings. I'm constantly trying to find other options because you can't buy these in petites (I like a shorter shirt as an option), but always come back to LL Beans -- and just pay to have them altered.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Wellser Sleeves too short
I agree with other reviewers. Fits awesome...EXCEPT the sleeves are too short. I have to keep tugging at them trying to stretch them in length. They look like cap sleeves on me.
