Rated 2 out of 5 by CarolinaRoadTripper After multiple launderings the placket puckers
When I first bought this shirt I loved it, like most of the reviewers here. In fact, I ordered a second one in a different color. Great fabric, great drape, great style for those of us with a bit of extra around the middle. But 6 months later, I have to donate it to Goodwill. After multiple washings, the placket where the buttons and buttonholes are has puckered up, and cannot be fixed by ironing. I have tried every ironing technique I can think of to stretch it out and make it lie flat, to no avail. It looks AWFUL. Cheap, and poor quality. I am embarrassed to wear it. I'm thinking most of the reviewers here posted when the shirt was new or fairly new. Warning, folks: It won't look good for long!

Rated 4 out of 5 by mommyz Some muted colors please!
The shirt is great--the material, the fit, the quality--but I wish LLBean would add a few "muted" colors to all its knit shirts--grey, charcoal, heathered navy/moss, etc. Bright colors are great and my mom loves them (she's retired) but one can only have so many teal/coral shirts. A younger urbanite, however, is probably not as interested in three shades of "berry".

Rated 5 out of 5 by Pagrrl Please bring back Plus sizes!
Own at least 4. Wear them all the time. Wear them so much I need some more. But they're no longer available. Never noticed problem with shrinkage. Also have the button sleeve shirts which are definitely not as nice-too thin, lost body of fabric. Please bring them back!

Rated 4 out of 5 by colormatters WHY WHYdid you discontinue this in women's sizes!?
I have bought this top five times now. One of my most favorite tops. I LOVE the 3/4 length sleeve & it is difficult to find 3/4 length sleeves in any tops. So imagine my disappointment when not only can I NOT buy them any more in Women's size 1X or 2X....but even your regular misses sizes are almost always out of stock in the XL size.
The black color looks especially dressy or casual....depending what you pair it with. Again.....I wish you would bring back this item in women's sizes. Thank-you. But great top for those of you who can wear the smaller sizes. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by MarinaMama So much too love!
If this top ever comes back on a 2-a-day markdown, I will buy more and I regret ordering only one in the first place. So what do I love about this pima henley? The fantastic choice of colors, the closed neckline (I leave the top four buttons open, but it's still modest), the excellent fabric and workmanship, the lack of clinginess, its utter forgiveness of my many age-related figure "flaws," everything about the design, its comfort and wearability. I don't think it would look good on all kinds of pants, but I'm wearing it right now with some Perfect Fits and it looks great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CanuckPetite Nice Item -Colour Not True to Photo or description
I recently purchased this item in the "Cardinal Red" (petite). However, when it arrived in the mail it was most definitely not my idea of cardinal red. The photo and name "cardinal red" make one think of a nice deep and rich red. This item is more of an orangey red. I will keep the item because it will cost me more to ship it back than what I originally paid. Disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeagleLove Love this shirt!!
These have become one of my go-to shirts for all year wear. Love the cut and the feel. Feminine but so comfortable. I have washed and worn for about a year and they still look just as good as when I bought them. I wash on gentle in cold water and hang to dry. I have them in many colors and love them all. I wear them to work with jeans and wear them on the weekend. And I always feel so comfortable. I highly recommend!

Rated 3 out of 5 by birdiegal if only it wouldn't shrink
I have this shirt in red, navy, and white. I loved them when new, but not so much now because they fade and shrink quite significantly. I do not mind the fading, but cannot accept the loss of length. Each time this shirt is washed, it seems to creep up a bit more until it does look like a maternity top because it is so short and wide.
I have had mine for awhile now; perhaps this has been corrected in the newer version.
Even if you are petite (I am 5'3") I suggest ordering in regular sizing so as to avoid ending up with a "cropped" shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AlwaysCheckLLBean Please bring this back!
This is a great, flattering shirt, and why it isn't available in XL any more is beyond me--please bring it back! The button front, tucked front pima cotton shirt is not a substitute, as it is incredibly unflattering--I'm sending mine back. I want this one!
