Rated 2 out of 5 by mcgiver Why the high collar?
The collar band for this shirt is a good 1/4" higher than any other L.L.Bean shirt I own. Why? It is a summer shirt and the collar ought not to be riding up the back of the neck. The backing for the neck band is of a heavier material than the shirt. It is a blue denim color and the weight is probably needed to support the extra high band. The annoying, over sized, prickly "slightly fitted" label in the back of the band that digs into my neck makes this shirt less than a pleasure to wear. I think the colors are terrific, the overall weight of the fabric - excepting the neck band - appropriate for summer time, and the fit
is perfect for me. I'm going to remove the label on the neck band but if the discomfort continues from the oversized, heavy, collar both shirts are going back. L.L.Bean, you've got to have consistency in your products if you want customers to be sure they are getting what they want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LLJax WONDERFUL Beans Madras Shirt
LOVE this shirt, and my husband does as well. Very easy care- slight ironing needed, but worth it! Light weight, perfect for summer. Purchased three so far.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by Makowa a MUST for every hot summer!
these are one of the best clothing items I have found for a true and hot summer. so I bought a few.
they stay comfortable even just when you thought it could not get any more hot.
not many kinds of shirts can take up to 110 degree heat. these can take it like it's nothing.
the fabric is velvet soft and does not stick whatsoever. they are one of the very best clothing choices I have made this summer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ColoradoJim Great fit and texture
I wore a lot of Madras shirts in high school and lately have been seeing a resurgence of Madras. This is the real deal. Nice soft cotton with that great Madras look. The fit and feel is wonderful!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WestTexas01 Good fit and good looking
I have a slender frame, and the slightly-fitted size was just right for me. It's comfortable. The material isn't too heavy, and should be cool on a hot summer day. I like this shirt.

This is a wonderful shirt - great look, great feel, great fit. I wear a standard men's medium and this was true to size - very comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by customer111 Well made cool shirts
I was very impressed by the material and workmanship. India can really produce comfortable clothes for hot summer and I am very glad to give it a try and ended up buying one of each color and two of some colors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by DarthVader1 Slightly Fitted Too Tight
The Madras fabric is great, it keeps you cool and is very comfortable on your skin. There needs to be a standard fit style to the slightly fitted one as there was a few years ago. I'm 5'6' but I have wide shoulders and the fitted style is way too tight and restrictive in the shoulders and sleeves. I love these shirts and own several but as long as they are fitted I can't wear them, too bad.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bittenfatten Good shirt-good fit
Fits well. A bit thin and doesn't feel like linen usually does. Nevertheless, a great summer shirt.
