Rated 3 out of 5 by susanilla Seacoast Linen, Jadeite plaid shirt
I am so disappointed. I love the shirt, but I ordered my normal size, large, and it is 4 1/2 inches too big around. Enormous. I don't know if it was mismarked or what, but they are out of the medium. I am bummed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ArtCatNightOwl Very pretty shirts!
I wear these shirts all the time. The Sea Aqua is just gorgeous and gets prettier and softer with each washing. Pretty with white linen crops and the LLB aqua/navy striped scarf or turquoise jewelry. I get lots of compliments on this shirt. I think the Cornflower Blue is a very nice subtle plaid that goes well with navy or white pants - am wearing it now actually with LLB indigo crops. The jade green is much prettier than in the picture and is also pretty with navy or white crops. The placket is narrow and gaps if not careful, so only four stars. I may add a little snap. Wonderful linen fabric. I roll up the sleeves and am good to go in the southwest summer heat. Please keep making these and make the placket just a tad wider. I would buy again. Thank you, LLB!

This is the ugliest shirt I ever saw. It is mostly fluorescent green color, unlike the picture in the ad. It is also way too big. Sent back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by loghomelady Cornflower Blue Too Faded
I ordered the Jadeite and the Cornflower Blue. The Jadeite was a little brighter than the picture on my monitor, but pretty and summery and the plaid colors are very versatile. The Cornflower Blue was much too faded, and when I held it up to the catalog picture and to the monitor picture, the fading was quite evident. I never removed it from the plastic wrapper because once washed it would probably have faded more. Back to LLBean.
I don't iron much, but have ironed the Jadeite washable linen because the rumpled wrinkled look is a little much for me. This is my first linen item, and now I know why people rave about the light, airy feeling when wearing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sweatersavvy Wonderful springtime shirt
I am very pleased with this shirt and don't mind the wrinkles as I bought it for casual wear. The linen is heavier than the summertime linen, but I expect to wear this shirt with the sleeves rolled up when it gets hot. The bright colors are beautiful and I hope LLBean offers this shirt again. I am 5'8" 160 lbs. and the large fits perfectly.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LoveMyHorse Great Shirt!
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.
