Rated 2 out of 5 by KateD Boxy and do not like the color
I love L.L. Bean Henleys but definitely wouldn't recommend this one. It's boxy and cut too small under the shoulders so that the whole shirt rides up if you raise your arms. I ordered one in Beeswax which was a mistake. I was expecting almost a butter yellow but instead it's the color of bold mustard. I can't wear it and because I bought it on markdown it's not worth returning it.

I was prepared to lay in supplies of this shirt -- until I raised my arms. This exposes far more than I (or the general public) would like to see.
The first wear was okay - then I washed the shirt in cold water, line dried. It falls just above the hips with arms by my side. If the shirt were longer through the body, it would be perfect. As is, I cannot recommend it. FYI, I am short (5'3") with a proportional torso. I purchased the regular size (not a petite).

Rated 4 out of 5 by BonnieC33 Not sure why all the bad reviews
I don't normally write reviews but I feel compelled to here for this item. The description of this shirt clearly says that it is the most generous fit and "falls at high hip". People seem to not like the shirt for these very reasons. I'm only giving this a 4 star rating because of the colors that are available. I would really appreciate navy blue and black. LLBean seems to like bright colors and that is what if offered for these Henleys.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 4747 Terrible fit
This is another example how formerly nice shirts have gone CHEAP with thinner material and a bad cut. It is WAY TOO SHORT. It looks ridiculous on me (5'8"). It looks like someone cut off the shirt. The sleeves are too short too and the body is cut way too boxy. Yuck. I have one of these shirts from years ago and this version is no where near the quality. This is going back. Sorry.

Rated 5 out of 5 by libraryland Saturday T Henley
Bought four of the Saturday Henley Shirts
I'm just 5' so anything short in the torso is great for me.
LL Bean is limited on petite sizing so it's great to find something that doesn't come down to my knees.
These are great, they are colorful, and very nice cotton.
Thanks for the wonderful customer service also

Rated 5 out of 5 by Zingara Love this T-shirt
Bought this Henley t-shirt because we just moved to Hawaii and it can be chilly on my morning dog walk. I have a big stomach and the cut is short enough to hid my "bulge" (it hits at the top of my hip). The material is soft and the long sleeves provide a little warmth. I washed the shirt in cold water and air dried it with no shrinkage. I have two old short sleeve Saturday-night t-shirts that I absolutely love. I like this cut so much that I have ordered 2 more Henleys and 3 more short sleeved ones. I hate t-shirts that hang lower and make me look pregnant.

I like a shirt that is not so long. I would like to see some tans and browns.

Rated 4 out of 5 by carol0271 Great Fit but Funny Coloring
I bought what I thought was the orange and white color. It is actually a peachy melon with tan stripes. I would not have bought this color if it was depicted properly.
Other than the color issue, it is a great fitting shirt and very comfortable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by hopidopi Length is OFF in two areas!!
I'm 5'2" and wear a 3X. Sleeves on this shirt are waaay long. But length is waaay short! Says it hits at high hip. And it does! But I'm short...if I were 5'5" or 6" it would be waist length. What I *do* like about this shirt is the fabric (I wanted a lightweight, long-sleeve shirt) and colors of the striped ones. I don't purchase much from Bean because colors are often same-o, same-o. Just wish this shirt was longer in length...

Rated 5 out of 5 by RuntOfTheLitter Perfect for Petites
Since I love the fit of the regular Saturday T-shirts (they are my all-time favorite T-shirts), I thought I'd give the Henley a try. I am 5'0" and 110 lbs. with a short waist and a wee bit of a tum. What I love about the Sat. Ts is that they fit loosely, which hides my little belly, and they are the only T-shirts I have found that are not way too long in the body. I am pleased that the Henley fit just as great as my other Sat. Ts. If you are a petite, these shirts are great! I plan to order a couple more. Oh, and I love the color too. I got the fresh mint with malachite green stripes (which I also have in the regular T) and it is a pretty color combination.
