Rated 3 out of 5 by Juniegrl Cute shirts but length is very short
I love the look & feel of these shirts. The neckline is very flattering. The colors are really nice, also -- I got a solid & a striped. I usually wear a petite but since the shirt doesn't come in petites I got the regular, & the sizing is ok -- a tad boxy but that's the difference between a petite & the regular misses. The problem with these shirts is that they're too short. I'm not even 5 feet tall, & if they're short on me they have gotta be waaaaay short on women of "normal" height. The sleeves are a little long on me (to be expected since it's not a petite) but though I like everything else about the shirt I can't recommend it because of the length.

What could be wrong with a "Saturday Henley?" Let me tell you, almost everything.
While the red striped shirt is pretty to look at, the sleeves are too short. Also, the shirt is short at the waist and shows my stomach when I raise my hand- which I do often being a teacher!
The other Henley 's are perfect, so I bought 2 of these predicting the same result, but sadly these are not even close.
Maybe I'll have to go back to the other casual catalog company!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarolCola Surprisingly neat & comfortable
I ordered this shirt in the white with stripes, mainly because I wanted a shirt that was a little more interesting to wear than my everyday long sleeve crew neck shirts. The stripes, in black & brown look good with either black or khaki slacks. The sleeves are not too tight, an issue with some of the slimmer fitting shirts, yet look a step up from tee shirts. I have ordered two more in other colors. Only small quibble is the hem does not want to lie flat. I suppose that would be easily resolved with a touch -up iron ... if I owned one .... ;-).

I absolutely love these shirts! I am 5'3 and it is not too long, has lots of room (do not order up) and they are super soft. After dressing up all week long this is my perfect weekend shirt! I started with a short sleeve crew, ordered the long sleeve Henley and have since gotten 6 total. I would love more colors, these go great with jeans!

Rated 2 out of 5 by mgray Great for a PJ top
I have bought a few of these...I love the length of the sleeves but as soon as it is washed it becomes square...way too wide and too short. Great for PJ's on a cold night as it covers your wrists snugly but not too tight. It is way to casual and unconstructed to wear out of the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gagirl525 Love the short length
I am 5'2" and weigh 130. I usually wear a petite medium. I ordered a regular small and it was perfect. After washing in cold water I dried for 10 minutes on delicate and hung to finish drying. No shrinkage. I immediately ordered more colors.
I personally am sick of every single tee and shirt being so very long. Even when I order petite! Please LL Bean , not every woman wants to have a shirt hanging below her bum! So bring on more colors and patterns!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WardrobeByBean Great Casual Look
I love everything about the Saturday Henley. I especially love the high hip length - something nearly impossible to find anywhere else. I don't like to tuck my shirts in and for my body type (5'4" and thin upper body with some hips) these shirts work really well. The material is lighter weight than the crew neck, but I think that lends itself to the style, making it a little more polished casual look. The Saturday shirts are more of a relaxed fit so I buy them in small to wear for "good" and in a medium for wearing around the house and pairing with Bean's sleep pants for pajamas. Which goes to show you can go from wearing them "accessorized" up, as a clean everyday look, or as comfortable lounge wear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ocean Soft and cuddly!
I really like the way this knit tee looks online, but hesitated buying one after reading other reviews that it is too short. Usually I order size medium, since I like a roomier fit, but ordered smalll, again due to reading other reviews. I ordered a plain color, not striped, and absolutely love it!! The fabric is soft and cuddly, yes, like a pajama top, as another reviewer wrote. Yet the henley style makes it look much cuter. It is a bit shorter than I prefer, but with pants or shorts at natural waist it is just fine. Also very much like the roomier sleeves, not tight as the Pima tees tend to be! In fact, it is so comfortable that I ordered a much larger size to use as a pj top, which are so hard to find in 100% cotton, and up north we wear long sleeve sleep tops year round! Lastly, it washed up great, ready to wear right out of the dryer, and very little, if any, shrinkage! Thanks LL Bean for a very comfy cotton tee! Only four starts because it is a little short.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Hellobilli Good Quality
Although this shirt is well made I believe style is missing. I ordered my usual size, medium, but it was much to big and boxy. I am 5'1" and usually order petite in shirts when available. I ordered a regular size for the length after reading reviews and still felt this Henley was to short. Must send it back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by wordsmith looks like a pajama top
These are very comfortable, but every time I look in the mirror I think PAJAMA! I also have two of the old style with the polo collar, and I love those - they look boxy but sporty. The length works for me, as I am short-waisted. I'll keep them and wear them at home, but won't be buying more until there is a style change.
