by Lois007 White Is Too Sheer
I ordered two of these shirts. One in classic blue, the other is white.
Both shirts have a strange 3/4 sleeve cut. The sleeves are longer than the usual 3/4 length. In addition, the placement of the button and the sleeve closure is such, that sometimes, when you bend your arm, your elbow sticks out.
Finally, the white shirt is very sheer. It is apparent the manufacturer has decreased thread count to save money. Your underwear will be visible underneath this shirt. I have attached a photo so you can see how sheer it is. Note this photo was not taken in full light. If this does not bother you, then the shirt will be fine.
Thanks to LL Bean's guaranteed product satisfaction, I can return the shirt. I will be exchanging it for another product. Something a little darker...:-)

I got malachite green, which is a beautiful color. I like the fit (I got an XL) very much. It is trim and somewhat fitted without being too tight. I wish Bean's other linen shirts fit like this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeanFan39 Premium Washable Linen/Eyelet Blouse
A beautiful blouse. Fits well, comfortable, and neat appearance goes with everything. The linen fabric gets softer with each washing. Bought a white one. Knew someday I'd get something on it that wouldn't come out in wash. Husband said, "Buy another one for when that day comes." Went online, he saw me placing the second order, said "Get yourself that blue one, too - that color will look really nice on you." So, I now have three. Wouldn't bother me a bit if I wore one of them every single day. Everyone who has seen them has complimented me on their fabric and "look."

This is a refreshing addition to the washable linen line of blouses. It is longer, more tunic length, and a bit more relaxed. The detailing going down the front makes it a bit dressier, but still casual. The linen material is up to the standard set by previous styles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by comeonup An excellent shirt
This shirt is much like the three-quarter sleeve linen shirt without eyelet trim except: the sleeve is a little longer; the cuff is a little narrower; the shoulders seem a little roomier. All improvements in my opinion. I like the choice of deeper colors [malachite green]. The eyelet trim is pretty but I'd be happy with a plain linen shirt with this fit.

I JUST WISH IT WERE MADE IN THE USA.
(Just a note to LL Bean...please remove after reading:
I have not ordered much lately because you have not had tees like the ones I use to wear. Your neck is too high, it needs to be just a little below the neck so I do not feel choked. Please say Hello to the man that works for you that was in the Army and stationed at Vint Hill in Warrenton ...I got him twice when I called to order....so nice)

Rated 5 out of 5 by mlong100 cute and comfy
This shirt is very summery looking, washed and dried well without shrinkage. The dark green is of course opaque. I am 5'3", 140 lbs and the petite size medium fits very well.

The linen fabric in this shirt is very nice, not too thin. It did seem to shrink slightly when washed but then it now fits perfectly. A very nice looking shirt. Happy to see LL Bean carrying more petite sizes.
