Rated 5 out of 5 by DrJParker Favorite Shirt
I have had one of these shirts for years. They look fine if you only wash and dry them and look fabulous if you have them laundered. Very comfortable and they get more so the more times they are washed.
They seem to wear forever and actually seem to gain character as they fade. I wear them with ties but will probably retire the older one I have to more casual wear. I think these shirts are great.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Ekim Colors not as shown on-line
I like the look and feel of the canvas sunwashed shirts, but I have been having trouble finding colors I like. They are much brighter when they arrive than what is shown online. First I ordered the coral dust and it was a very bright orange-pink so I returned it for the faded gold, which is a much yellower hue than the beige-ish color it appears online. Maybe the colors fade after several washes. I am slim so I got the slightly fitted cut, which is good through the body, but is a bit tight around the elbows and upper forearms. I don't feel like sending it back again, so I'll wash it a few times and hope for the best.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Margo1020 Great shirt for Husband
I purchased another color for my husband and he thought it was great. The slightly fitted long sleeve shirt fit him like a glove. The quality is perfection. I ordered another in the blue but he didn't like the color so I had to send back. Wish there were more colors to choose from for the slightly fitted long sleeve shirt because I would have purchased more. Need more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Review1 The Perfect Shirt (almost)
If you added sleeve placket buttons, then it would be the perfect shirt. The material is great, the design is great. Just the sleeve buttons to make wearing 3/4 sleeves a bit easier.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pal1791 Sunwashed Canvas Shirt
Good value, color and fit. I fall between a Medium and a Small, so a Slightly Fitted Medium is just right.
The Sun Wash look is great and I wish LL Bean had more Sun Washed choices.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Colorado62 On probation
This shirt has great fit and feel. Out of the bag it seems like a great shirt. However, this shirt is on probation. I bought a couple of these "sun-washed" canvas shirts 3 years ago, and they fell apart within a year, starting at about the 10th wearing. I am keeping scrupulous records of how many wear/wash cycles this one goes through. A canvas shirt should above all be durable, and this one will have to prove itself before I recommend it.

One of the best shirts I ever bought. The only suggestion I would make is that it should have button-down collar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jetdog good fit
I'm between sizes on some of Bean's shirts - Large Tall sometimes is not cut right for the arms and chest while standard XL is way too big. Tried the XL "slightly fitted" and it appears to be a good compromise fit for the sunwashed canvas shirt. I hope more shirts become available with this size option. The shirt itself seems well constructed but it does retain some wrinkles out of the drier and the material is not as soft as I had expected but I'm sure this will change with additional washing and through normal wear cycles. I'll see how this shirt performs over time before I order another. If it holds up over time it'll be a winner.
