Rated 4 out of 5 by thinsoapy Good except for one thing
This is a very comfortable shirt, especially in the heat. Not sure about the other reviewers with regards to length - I am hunched over due to a genetic disorder, which makes my torso seem very short - but this shirt is what I would call normal length (for regular). Many other shirts are way too long for me. The only problem I've had with this shirt is the folded-over seam effect alongside the buttons after washing (at least one other viewer mentions this). You can iron it out on a low setting but it's annoying to buy a "no-iron" shirt and then to have to do this after each wash. Still, it fits me well enough that I will probably buy another and put up with the small ironing job. On the next batch, here's hoping they set the tension on the thread not so tight (what my wife says is the issue).

Rated 5 out of 5 by BobHatLI A lightweight shirt for summer
This is the 3rd Bean's Camp Shirt I've purchased. They're lightweight, absorbent and completely comfortable in hot, sticky NY weather. I find the tall/large size fits me well, whereas in the past I often had to settle for regular/XL for length, then tolerate the excessive width. As other reviewers point out, some ironing is needed at the edges of sleeves, the bottom hem, and the placket. This is a very minor annoyance and I enjoy my shirts despite it.

For work wear in a hot manufacturing environment, an administrator could only do worse. Comfortable fit. Drapes well. Fabric excelente.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Wildcats007 Not worth the money
Figured that the quality would be similar to other camp shirt that I have purchased from LL Bean over the past two decades, but I was very wrong. Flimsy material, bad construction, poor stitching, cheap buttons tell the story...not worth the money. I will be returning it for a refund this week.

A comfortable warm-weather shirt. Mine was a bit oversize out
of the box, but a couple washings shrank it to size.
Care is a problem. "Machine wash" is deceiving. It means
machine wash with cold and delicate settings. "Tumble dry" means that; I hung mine up and it dried wrinkled.
What use is a camp shirt that cannot be washed in a bucket and hung to dry. Buy a cotton shirt and live with the wrinkles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JoeRags Great Product/Not So Great Sizing
I really like this shirt for the fabric and the feel. I am disappointed in the fit. As with pretty much all of LL Bean's S/M/L sizing, the Large's chest size fits me, but its length is too long. A Medium's length is right but the chest is too tight. LL Bean needs to make clothes that fit men that have a 42" chest, but aren't 5'10". Luckily for me, my wife can hem these, but it's annoying to pay premium prices for a product I have to have altered to fit properly.

Bought two of these shirts. Nice hot weather shirt. True to size.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MLReeves lightweight, good cut, annoying creases
I liked this shirt a lot, right out of the package. It is nicely cut, fit my boxy frame quite well, and was light weight and comfortable. Seemed perfect. Then I washed it. It came out of the wash okay, except down the front where the button holes are located (the button placket). The entire placket was sharply creased--too much to fix by hand stretching, and the care instructions say do not iron. I could have probably ironed it out anyway without too much of a problem, but I've had shirts that crease like this before and it never gets better, so it would have to be ironed after every wash--and continually ironing a shirt that says not to iron it greatly shortens the lifespan of the shirt. They should have put some kind of reinforcer inside the placket to minimize the creasing, or just went with 100% cotton so it can be ironed.
Giving two stars because the shirt is comfortable and cut well. Not giving any more though, because for the cost of this shirt, it should not have such a glaring problem. If you are not bothered by a creased placket, then it's a fine shirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bmwtn Needs Ironing to look it's best
"comes out of it's pocket the same as it went in" assumes it went in wrinkled. It also comes out of the dryer wrinkled, like seersucker on steroids. I like the look and the feel, and if you are comfortable with a somewhat disheveled look, you will be very happy, but if you are expecting a wrinkle free shirt you may want to look elsewhere. The item is pictured accurately, and this is what it looks like from a gentle wash and dry cycle.
