Rated 5 out of 5 by yorktownbean Love the Relaxed Oxford Sizing!
These shirts are perfect for me and I hope they never change the sizing. The petite XL is what I usually order and what I got this time. The sleeves were long enough and roomy and the length was perfect for my short waisted 5'3" frame. These shirts are timeless and wear well and don't look sloppy even though they are relaxed. The fabric is soft but substantial and because they are cotton, I wear them all year long. I purchased the white which looks wonderful with khakis or jeans and I wanted the light gold color but it's sold out now :( please bring back another yellow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tractorchick Looks Great
I just ordered another shirt. My first one looks like I have spent the morning ironing. Rest assured, I did not. I really like the crisp finish. Having been blessed with long arms I appreciate the fact the sleeves really are "long". Would I recommend adding this to your wardrobe? You bet!

I ordered my usual LLBean size and felt like I was swimming in this shirt, maybe if I were a few inches taller... There is a lot of fabric to it, great if you want more of a relaxed fit. The stripes are beautiful and line up perfectly.

Excellent, excellent, excellent! Perfect amount of room in this Oxford. I don't care for slimmer shirts, so this is perfect for me. It's soft, can be casual or dressy, and suits my lifestyle perfectly. I wear it sailing, lounging, and at work. You won't be dissapointed. I ordered about every color in petite. LLB, please make more colors in this fit!

Rated 1 out of 5 by kwpdx Shirt is much longer than in years past.
I ordered this to replace a well-loved and overly worn version of the same shirt that I ordered 4 or 5 years ago. I'm now returning the one I just received because it is easily 2-3 inches longer in both the tail and front. It's not only much longer than the older version, it's much longer than any other LLBean shirt that I own, and I own quite a few.
I'm 5'7" long-waisted and usually struggle to find something long enough. Having a shirt be too long has never happened to me before. I don't know if it's a fluke (bad cut) or a new pattern that's being used, but I'm having to send it back.

Rated 3 out of 5 by BeanMail Thinner stripes would be more flattering
I have had one of these in petite XL, and it was very good quality and very comfortable. However, I ultimately felt the very wide stripes were not flattering on me, at 5'3 1/2 tall. I still have a striped oxford that is around 10 years and still going strong. The thinner stripes on that are more flattering to me. I would have rated this shirt higher if it were a less boxy shape with thinner stripes.

Rated 2 out of 5 by pennysworth Sizing Problem
The fabric of the solid white oxford shirt I ordered was substantial and to my liking. I used to find size 1x just right. On this occasion the shirt was extremely long (I'm 5'5'') in the torso but the sleeves were fine. The collar was huge. I so wanted to keep this classic oxford but it did not fit the way shirts in the past have. Alas, it was returned!

Rated 4 out of 5 by SM811 Just needs a couple of improvements
I really appreciate that this shirt has room in the sleeves and at the hip - not cut too tight to wear as so many other name brands have started doing, and I love the color - a bit more muted than the online photo shows. It is overly full in the mid back though. I have one I bought several years ago that doesn't have the back placket, and it suits me better. The older shirt also has a sleeve placket that is about an inch shorter than the new one and has a button. I don't mind the missing button, but a shorter placket would make it easier to keep the sleeve rolled up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JG1950 Love it !
I ordered this shirt years ago. I am so pleased that it is STILL the same shirt ! Not cut down, or or tailored ,. Washes so well and excellent quality. So hard to find blouses that are not skimpy or very cheap fabric. I ordered a large many years ago and large this time 5'5 and 160. Fits so nice. I chatted with someone on line and she told me that is was the same shirt I had ordered years ago, she was right ! Please don't change it! More colors :)
