Rated 5 out of 5 by CosmicBlue Love this Linen Shirt
I wear and wash this shirt frequently. The linen feels good next to my skin on a hot day. The Cornflower Plaid goes well with blue or white denim pants. It is cool, casual, and comfortable. My usual size medium is a good fit.

Love LOVE this shirt. The linen is wonderful, the colours terrific and the fit perfect. I have 3 and am about to order the yellow....might as well! Easy to wear, easy to wash....what's not to like. May we have navy?

Love this shirt! I think linen is absolutely best for our humid summers and this shirt is perfect. Love the weight of the fabric. Colours are nice too, ordered Lemon Sorbet and Sea Aqua.
Fit is very good, I'm 5'2" and 180lb the the XL is great. Sleeves are ALWAYS too long and so appreciate the roll sleeve. One thing makes me very cranky. Ordered this shirt July 21 and 6 days later I see it's on sale. Yup! I just lost $20.00.

Rated 4 out of 5 by NHBirder Seacoast Linen Shirt
I vary between medium and large in LLBean shirts. In this shirt, the medium was too small, and large was a little too big. I washed and dried (in the dryer) the large shirt and now it fits pretty well. I'm 5'3", 157 lbs., 36DD.
The fabric of this shirt is much heavier than the washable linen shell and shirt, so to me, it is more of a "big" shirt, or a shirt you'd wear over a T. Or a shirt you'd wear when it's not stifling out.
The color and plaid are very attractive, which is the biggest reason I am keeping the shirt. I think this will soften and become a favorite of mine over time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by catgirl101 Great shirt!
I ordered a small like I usually do and it fits just fine. I washed it, threw it in the dryer with a dryer sheet for just 5 minutes, shook it out, hung it up, smoothed it down with my hands, let it continue to air dry and it looks just like I had ironed it. It's nice and soft and light weight. Since I live in Florida, I can wear it all year. I like the option of long sleeves or rolled sleeves.

I love this shirt. It's lightweight enough for summer, but the versatile sleeves will take me right into fall and even to layer for winter. My problem seems to be relying on the reviews too much for the fit. I typically take a medium, but I am a bit busty. After reading that the chest is a bit tight, I ordered a large. It's way too big. I could have easily taken a medium. I would say this runs true-to-size. I'll keep it and wear it open with a tank or tie it at the front for the summer. The jadeite plaid is very cute!

Bought the Jadeite in XS (I'm 5'1", 110lbs). It could be a little bit more form fitting/softer but I mostly wear it as an outer shirt over another shirt so it's fine.
The color was louder than I wanted it to be so I wasn't sure if I was going to keep it, but it mellowed out a bit after washing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mrsleepy I love the shirt
I bought the jadeite, and I love the colors. I wash it on gentle, cold water, and I DO NOT put it in the dryer. Just shake it, hang it, shape it, and it comes out fine. I don't iron, and this shirt is no exception. It will have a washed look, but no nasty deep wrinkles. I recommend the shirt, no problems.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Heavenlypivot Pleasantly Surprised
I'm a connoisseur of linen shirts. Well, linen shirt snob is maybe a better term. That's why this shirt came as a very pleasant surprise.
Yes, this really is premium quality linen. I don't often see fabric of this quality, even in shirts costing 4 times as much
Sleeves are plenty long to wear down or roll
The not-so good:
The armhole/bust area needs some design tweaks - too tight
The placket is too narrow and gaps
Pockets too high, maybe too small
Regarding wrinkles: That's linen, part of the character and part of the experience. If they bother you, stick to easy care pieces. Washing linen softens the fiber and (over time) makes it less prone to wrinking.
I warm or hot-wash linen, tumble dry for about 10 minutes, then hang damp and smooth plackets, cuffs and collar. A blast with a super hot iron or steamer if I'm feeling energetic, if not, I enjoy my shirt that week with a bit of texture.
A well-washed linen shirt is one of the secret joys of life. This shirt may well become a long-time favorite.

Rated 3 out of 5 by HeyYouDoll color not accurate
The sea Aqua color of this linen shirt is not at all like the color shown on the website. Much much lighter. Disappointing.
