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.

Please bring back the 3/4 sleeved Saturday tee. Either the henley or the polo neckline would be fine. I love the length of the tee. However, if you make it any roomier, it will look like a maternity top. I prefer the older style (less boxy). I have some of the older ones, so I'm getting by, but would love some additions to my collection of Saturday tees.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gigi2006 I've gotten lots of mileage
I bought 3 of these shirts in the spring and have gotten hours of wear out of them. I'm 5 ft so the length is perfect, The colors green, red and light blue striped go with jeans or kahkis or the LL Bean sun washed canvas pants. The cotton is substantial and stands up to many washings. I like them because they are not the usual tee shirt styling. They are for casual times but are more interesting than a plain tee.
If they are offered next spring I'll probably get another color.

I like the shorter 'look' - - something a little 'different'. Note: it tends to run large. I ordered 'L'....'Large' usually fits fine. However, even after washing, the shoulder-seams hang-off my shoulders.

Rated 3 out of 5 by lovethebirds Solid Henley T-Shirt
This review is for the solid version of Saturday Henley. I liked the styling, but unfortunately it didn't work for me. I have a striped short sleeve Saturday Tee, but it seems to me that this solid Henley wasn't the same quality of knit fabric. It felt thinner but as I returned this item, I am unable to comment on how it felt or looked after washing.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Grannynana Shorter after washing but still comfortable length
I have bought 2 of these shirts in solid colors, white and yellow, and ordered two other colors today. It is by far one of my most comfortable shirts. It does shrink up and the fabric is not exactly wrinkle free. New, out of the bag, it's way to big and after washing the length and sleeves are as described. The shorter length covers my tummy and skims my muffin top nicely. The fabric looses it smooth appearance but still fine to wear out of the dryer, for casual wear. The neck band stays flat and I think its a flattering look. I'm 5'6", wt 150 and wear a medium. I have an older version of this shirt that I bought 5 years ago and still wear. Love Bean!

Here we have a shirt with a conflicted personality. Above, a neat and nicely tailored henley. Below, a repressed floozy yearning to become a crop top. The fullness of the body is an inner couch potato.
This is almost a great casual tee. The neckline is well designed with a wide band all around so it looks dressier. But the tee's so short, almost unwearable.
The fullness is fine for the "weekend" feel, but looks balloonish with the chopped-off hem. Just add 5 inches to the length and all will be well.
Now, the colors, white is the only one I can wear. The soft blue and yellow are very pretty, but not for my coloring.
That cardinal red is hideous, with too much orange in it. All LLB's reds (except for the men's section) have been outrageously weird for a year. That shamrock green cannot flatter any complexion over age 30.
Offer this shirt in 10 colors, why so few? And colors according to what women wear and what will coordinate. Brights are OK, but LLB consistently makes them TOO bright or intense. These colors are an ongoing problem. Not sure who is designing but it's almost an LLBean trademark, weird colors.
The stripes are OK, a subtle - if somewhat masculine - affect. But can LLB do any pattern besides stripes and plaids? Some of us do not need horizontal lines adding 10 pounds to our appearance.
It would be better to fix the length, make the sleeves FULL length while you're at it (it is a "weekend" shirt), keep the high quality neck and construction, and sell it in only white, if that's what it takes to make it right. IMHO.

Purchased this item in a medium. I loved it when I wore it however, after washing, it became a crop top. I washed it in cold water followed by a tumble dry. I will be sending it back.
