I ordered two and the shirt and colors are very nice, but it is a true to size shirt. I did just what LL Bean stated, ordered one size up, washed them and dried in the dryer and no shrinkage. This is why I am hesitate to order from LL Bean due to the inaccurate sizing. If I had not thrown away all order information/Bag I would return them for the true size.
Buy the shirt yes, but order your true size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hermitsunite I ordered one size up, and.....
After reading the customer reviews that indicated that despite LL Bean's recommendation to order one size larger to allow for shrinkage, there wasn't a need to do so, I contacted customer service and asked what size they'd recommend for me. I usually wear a size medium. The representative recommended I order a large and wash/dry it before wearing it. Well, the large arrived and it was HUGE on me. Seriously, it looked like I could have worn football shoulder pads under it. Machine washed it in cold water and put it in the dryer for 45 minutes. And now......it fits perfectly! Thank you LL Bean customer service! Love this light weight comfy Henley!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SBTnMZ A wonderful shirt
I live in rural Africa and ordered every color of this shirt for my wife to bring to me when she came to visit. I ordered two in medium (my size) and two in large due to LLB's instructions. I wish I just got the Medium. I dont think it runs as large as they believe it does. I've since ordered 2 more in medium to pick up at Christmas. I wear these almost every day in hot, dusty rural Mozambique and it's perfect. It's light, provides good sun protection, and easy to launder. I love the muted colors and really hope they introduce more soon. it is the perfect warmer weather companion to my other favorite shirt, the two layer river driver henley. great work folks!

Great quality, nice looking and comfortable to wear. LL Bean suggested purchasing one size larger, wash and product would shrink. I would not do that next time. Product may have shrunk but way too big for me. Next time, same size purchase.

Really Nice shirt
Sleeves need to be reinforced at the end and they need to get more colors
