Rated 5 out of 5 by PersonalStyle A match made in heaven
This thin, fitted shirt is the perfect undershirt to wear with the coral rose striped tunic TK299958. I love it with the tunic open. I bought the L knit shirt to put under the XL tunic. With 44 inch hips, the L knit works in the tee, but the woven tunic had to be an XL to fit buttoned up at the bottom. The XL looks sloppier in the shoulders and bust when I have to button it. This combination solved the problem and looks great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by UMOalum Order up
I am so glad I read other reviews before ordering three of these tees. I usually wear medium in Bean tops, but because these are more fitted and because of the customer reviews, I ordered large. They arrived today and were comfortable when I tried them on. The scoop neck on the gray shirt was a bit looser than I would have liked. However, after washing and drying them per instructions, all three fit well. Length was still good. Necklines firmed up nicely. The fit is close to the body, but the bottom flares out a bit, giving room for the tee to fit over the hips (and I have HIPS). If I had purchased medium in this shirt, I would have looked like an overstuffed sausage. Instead, these are very flattering and give a lean appearance. I am happy to add them to my wardrobe.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kmny Thanks for bringing the old fabric back
Love this tee. Slub fabric drapes nicely and the sleeve length is flattering. The neckline is graceful. I purchased the fig and the fir color. Will buy more as long as llbean uses this fabric. Fashionably textured and not like regular tee fabric. A little different and I like it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by DMWB2 sheer fabric
The fabric is very thin which means the white was see through. I returned it since I wanted something I could wear in public.

by ehjulstrom Perfect fitted top
Many times L.L. Bean tees are too loose or the scoop-neck is too high for my liking, but this shirt was perfect! I love the colors and can't wait to wear it on my vacation next week! Of note, I'm 5'5", 130 lbs, usually wear XS tops from L.L. Bean - I ordered a small in this top and it was fitted, so if you want a looser fit, definitely go up at least a size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by katesgrandma My current faves
I bought 3 of these last year, am buying another now, and would buy more if the color choice were broader. These fit closely indeed, but size S copes with both my 5'1" stature and excessive bosom. The fabric is comfortable even in our hot sticky summers, and thank goodness for the longer sleeves. At my age (75), I don't do short sleeves, which limits severely the styles I like. The slightly scoopy shirttails are a nice touch and provide a more finished un-tucked look. I wash these shirts in cold, low-temp dry, and have noticed no shrinkage.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BicycleGal How did this pass inspection?
I received my West End tee and could immediately tell, even before opening the plastic bag, that it was flawed. The tee was cut completely off grain and crooked. I tried it on and noted that it was already pulling askew across my torso, in a sort of bias direction. One washing and it would be unwearable as we all know how knits will pull in their natural direction. This garment was cut off grain at the factory, then pressed, and packaged. Somewhere along the production line it should have been inspected, rejected and never sent out for sale. Not only that, but once at the Bean warehouse and at the time it was pulled for mailing, it should have been rejected as you could very obviously see the biasing through the plastic bag.
The knit fabric and color [dark indigo heather] and the styling are nice, but the shirt as sewn and sent to me, unwearable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dobergirl I love these tees
I am tall and struggle to find longer tees that aren't boxy. I ordered up a size to an XL. They fit perfectly and launder well enough. The fabric is thinner.....which I like. They are slightly fitted but very forgiving around my middle-aged waist. These are perfect for casual looks with jeans and shorts. I like the heather colors, but, wish LL Bean would make some more fashion forward colors. The oyster blue is pretty on line but very light in person. A bit disappointing. That said, I will order more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by sfteacher Great style
The style is perfect, round neck , not too high, fitted and great color choices. I usually wear a medium in LL Bean( 5'9" 170, 38B), the large fit well. It is fitted, not at all loose, but perfect to wear with skirts for work. If you have lumps and bumps it will show all. I only wish LL Bean would make this style and COLORS in a pima cotton for a dressier look. This fabric is a bit rough. The colors are soft and grayish which I like to wear with beige and gray skirts for the office.
