Rated 3 out of 5 by lovemyporch Bring back the old style!
I've worn these shirts for a long time - they are great for work and cool in the summer. Yes, they need ironing but that's fine. A few years ago when I needed some new ones, you started making them more fitted with darts in the back. They just are not so comfortable anymore - the added darts make them hotter and more clingy. The armholes are tighter. What happened!! Please bring back the old boxy style - it was MUCH more comfortable!

Lovely linen shirt, but has darts in the back, so it is fitted. Will not fit large busted women. The cut is also wrong. Made for a long torso. Wish this shirt was short and boxy, then maybe it would fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Northern123 A keeper for Years
I've tried on several LLbean linen shirts and this is my keeper.
I'm 5-2" size 10-12 a 36C, pear shaped and find that the medium is a perfect fit. This shirt balances me out and I love the side slits on both the sleeves and bottom. This gives added width without extra material. I find it very flattering on my body. It's just enough coverage without looking droopy or slouchy.
This is a classic that will never go out of style and a good investment shirt that will last for years.
If different colors are offered next year, I would suggest colors that are more on the neutral side. I'm not fond of the bright pinks, greens, and blues.
I prefer black, dark grey, light grey, mountain red, brown and navy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sunflowers54 Year round casual comfort
I bought my first shirt 5years ago and now own 6. These great shirts drape well and get softer with every washing. They can be worn alone or over a tank, but always look terrific. Can't say enough good things about them! Only drawback is that they need ironing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BeckyNY Well made but long
This shirt is well made and the fabric is very nice, but it was a little too fitted and too long. I have bought many shirts from Bean over 30+ years, and always wear the same size. And I have ordered linen shirts in past year (way past), but this styling is just too slim.
This may work well for tall, small busted and very fit women.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DWumwelt Uncomfortable
Very disappointed with this shirt. The material feels very rough and uncomfortable to the skin. The shirt arrived wrinkled and the material appeared to just be always wrinkled. I am not a big fan of constantly ironing clothes and I had hoped that linen had evolved to be more consumer friendly. Keeping this shirt wrinkle-free is too much of an effort for casual summer wear. Would not really recommed this item to anyone. Usually LLBean offers much better quality for their products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TahoeBarb Nice but wrinkles
I really like this shirt but every time I buy linen I kick myself afterwards- it wrinkles like crazy. This shirt in a nice cotton would be perfect. Other than that, it is great- good color and fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTOD Cool and comfy, need plus sizes!
These shirts are so airy and comfortable, and I love the colors. I'm 5'6", 140, 36D and the S was a bit too tight in the chest, so I kept the M. I do wish they were cut a bit looser in the chest and tighter in the waist, but they're so comfy I'm not too bothered about it. They're also very versatile so I can wear them with ratty jeans or dressier slacks. LLBean, you REALLY need to make these in plus sizes. My mother has been looking for a nice short-sleeved linen shirt for ages, but she's a plus size and is now super jealous of my new shirts!
