Rated 5 out of 5 by BeansRegular In defense of this great shirt
When I first saw this shirt I was not sure that I liked the tweedy texture and was afraid that they may be scratchy. When they went on daily markdown, I swept up 3 of them (turquoise, purple and off-white) and was pleasantly surprised. The all fit true to size and were very soft. The tweedy texture was more attractive in person than online, and the fabric is substantial, not the flimsy stuff you find in most stores. I have very sensitive skin to rough fabric (most linen bothers me too much to wear), but these were fine on me. The neck was not too low and the henley buttons and pintucks provided nice style. I received compliments every time I wore them. I washed on cold (always do) and hung to dry (as I do for all knits) and there was no noticeable shrinkage. I like all three and would encourage you to try them too--they are a nice surpise.

Rated 1 out of 5 by allnicksaretaken Scratchy!
Sorry to have to give it even one star. Bought, washed, put on...couldn't wait to get it off! This was the only completely unacceptable item I've ever purchased from LLBean. I sent it back and suggested they pay the return postage, since the item had absolutely NO redeeming virtues. Disappointed, me...was looking forward to cozy, comfy item.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CityGirlInTheCountry Major Shrinkage
I loved this shirt and wore it a couple times, each time I washed it it shrunk more and more, now it is too small and I can no longer wear it. I am returning it and sad because they don't have anything larger than a Large right now so I am out a nice shirt. DO NOT PUT IN THE DRYER!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Abbeyroad Heathered Tweed Henley
Initially when I received this in the mail, I was very happy with the color, fit and styling. My complaint is that after washing and drying it a couple of times, the fabric has started to "pill."
I will keep it as it is comfortable, but it will be mostly for working around the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gem48 Love the Fit and the Colors!
I was wary after reading the reviews but bought three anyway in 3 colors...and I love them! They fit me great, compliment my figure in places needing it and obscuring my figure in places that don't need it.
The shoulders are more snug and the bottom more roomy which is very figure flattering for me. I bought the cream, wine and teal colors and they are all so pretty. I like the wide neck and didn't find it a problem at all. There are little black specs all over the top (heathered look) which adds nice texture to the overall look.
I was afraid it would shrink after washing and it didn't shrink much at all nor did it bleed in the wash. I'll be buying the rest of the colors for sure!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SeattleCommuter Look carefully at the picture
This shirt is okay, but the loose neckline makes it more like a shirt you'd wear as pajamas. Also, the body is loose, it's not like a typical fitted Henley. The sleeves are short -- more like 3/4 length but longer than that, yet no cuff or button. All in all, it adds up to a pajama-like, Mary-Jane, loose-fitting look. The picture is accurate, so look closer than I looked, and if this is the type top you want, you'll be very pleased with the quality and the fabric. I thought I was buying a Henley, but it's not, so I'm returning it, but it's a nice top that someone else may like very much. Runs true to size, I'm 5'4", 118 and a small was the right size.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Southerngal123 Cute Henley
Just received 3 of of these cute Henley shirts today: deep raspberry, classic navy, and deep turquoise. The colors are beautiful with the contrasting tweed material. I ordered my normal size medium and they fit great. I read many of the review that said the neck was too wide or cleavage too deep but that was not the case for me. I am 5'71/2 , 145, thin broad shoulders, curvy hips, 36A bust. I gave it 4 stars for the following reasons: The deep raspberry seem a little smaller in the waist; the classic navy smelled like someone may have worn it with a strong perfume; I am not sure I love the feel of the tweed, seems a bit rough. However, they wash beautifully...washed them on gentle with Woolite and dried on low for a few minutes with a dryer sheet, then hung to dry. (And the Oder/perfume smell is gone) Still a little rough for a 100% cotton shirt, but the tweed is what makes this Henley so Cute! And I got them on the 2-A-Day a Daily Markdown! Awesome!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by birdwatcher61 Disappointed in Fabric Quality
Disappointed in the lack of quality of this top. Cute style though. Fit is on the small side and feels skimpy. Biggest problem is the fabric which feels flimsy and rough. Doesn't feel good next to the skin.I will be returning this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LOLO2702 Wore it 3 days in a row while driving.
I am: 5' 8" tall, 172 lbs, 36D or 34DD, ordered a Medium
After washing this still falls just a little past the hip. Fabric didn't roll or twist after washing.
Nicely covers the abdomen.
Sleeve length is near/at the wrist for a tall person.
Is nicer looking than wearing a t-shirt.
The "heather" helps hide travel wrinkles from seat belts, etc.
P.S.: Might as well put on the same top when I won't see the same people each day, the top isn't compromised, and is entirely comfortable for driving and flights. ; )

Rated 1 out of 5 by happy2day Poor quality item.
I returned this item because the material was very flimsy and thin. It was supposed to be a small/petite, but was way too big. This item does not reflect the normal quality of L.L. Bean.
