Rated 5 out of 5 by UpperEastsideMom if between sizes go for the larger one
I bought this short (short sleeve) last summer in a small and just purchased another one in a medium. They do shrink, and I recommend buying a little larger than usual, especially if you are between sizes. The shirt is quite nice, with an up to date look. Lovely for those hot summer days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mainebornllbeaner Great casual tee
Bought this T on sale in an olive green color. Great casual T, with the weave of the knit a bit slubbed. Very current style. I like that it was a bit longer than other tees I have seen at Bean's.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NOLAProud Love This Shirt!!!
Finally, a 100% cotton t-shirt that is long enough to cover me well! And, it's well-made! I debated over going with the small or the medium. According to the size chart, I should be a medium, but it was just too baggy on me. I'm 5'9" with a 37" bust and 41" hips and this shirt in a small fits just right. I stretch it out a bit before I put it on, but it is very flattering. The neckline on the medium was so baggy that the cups of my bra showed (not really my look). I now have 3 of the T-shirts and 3 of the tanks, and I will be getting more soon! I just wish they would make the same fit with some patterns and some different necklines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lupinibean Favorite shirt!
I originally bought this in Mahogany Red (which is a beautiful color) in the short sleeved version, then bought the 3/4 sleeve in the same color and another short sleeved in the Forest Moss. If I could afford it, I'd buy all the colors in all the different versions. They are so flattering. Yesterday I was wearing one to go shopping; I could see when I tried other tops on just how well-made and flattering the West End tee was in comparison. Fitted but not too fitted (I'm busty and look ridiculous in tight tops), long but not too long. Nice lightweight cotton, perfect for warm weather. Beautiful and sophisticated colors (I happen to loathe pastels but I'm probably in the minority). Love, love, love. Please don't stop making these.

I love this teal color that Bean started this year. Just beautiful. Usually I do not buy tshirts anymore that do not have a bit of Lycra. For some reason I tried this (probably because I loved the color) and it washes out well and I am happy with it. Would love it even better if there was a touch of lycra. This is light weight t which is great for Florida. It also falls a little longer which is so much more flattering than the shorter tshirts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PennsylvaniaGirl Most flattering T-shirt!
I just love the West End Tee! Absolutely the best shirt! The fit is the most flattering LLBean has to offer and the material is so soft and supple. It washes and wears well and is very flattering for petites - finally! I love this shirt and it's now my favorite; I just hope that there will be more colors available soon. This shirt is a must-have!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MagicalFruit A good, basic T
I'm 5' 10" with a long torso, and this T-shirt fits me fine; it isn't boxy, like some Bean shirts are. I'll probably order more in additional colors if it still is good after a few more washings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mathjunkie Excellent fit and long enough!
I love the lightweight material - perfect for Central Virginia summers - and am happy to see that LLBean is making longer shirts. These fit beautifully and wash well. I am ordering more colors but unfortunately missed out on the pink - if that color comes back I'll get it as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by YogaBing Comfortable, Lovely Look
I thought this shirt would be comfortable to wear to my yoga classes; I wanted something light and breathable, but a bit fitted. It's not only perfect for yoga, but great to wear with jeans and skirts. I only bought one (light grey), but I'm back on line to buy more colors.
The fit is what I like the most - - not too loose, nor too tight.
Thanks, LL Bean! Keep this shirt in stock!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PhxBean Love, love, love these tees!
I can't say enough good things about this shirt; I've purchased about half a dozen now in various colors, all of which are true to the online depiction. The fit is wonderful--comfortably fitted, not frumpy (5'3" 112#, size XS)--and the lightweight cotton slub is perfect for AZ summers. It's becoming very difficult to find comfortable, well-made, attractive, basic tee shirts. These succeed on all counts and are now my go-to tees for casual, daily wear. PLEASE, LLBean, keep these around and also make them in a long-sleeve V-neck!
