Rated 4 out of 5 by OlderInPurple Frustration
I LOVE the style of this shirt, with the square boat neck and elbow sleeves. There isn't a color offered that I can wear (July 2014). The few that aren't strong or harsh are pale. I could imagine buying several in medium-soft greens and blues and purples. Based on other purchases in this line, I would recommend these to a friend whose coloring could support the strong tones.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NativeSoutherner Great top!
I bought this top in red size small. I am 5' 4" and around 130 lbs and it fits great. The length comes to the point just above where my leg joins my hip (I am long torso and short legged) It can be tucked in or worn out like a tunic. It is slightly fitted. The neck is very flattering and can be dressed up with jewelry/scarves or left plain. The sleeves come to just above the elbow. The fabric has a good feel and is not cheap looking. I like this top so much that I am trying to decide what color to buy next. This shirt will be a great addition to your closet!

Rated 3 out of 5 by wildflower55 Not for Southern girls
The review I had read of this item said the sleeves were tight. I concur. The sleeves are tight. The shirt is so cute in the picture and when you take it out of the package. With the temps running over ninety degrees and high humidity there is no room in the sleeves for any air so you know going outside would be miserable. It is tight to the skin. So from the mid Atlantic to the deep South this item is not good for the summer. I have not decided whether to return the shirt immediately or keep it and try it on again in cool weather. I hope LL Bean stops production and modifies the sleeves and then brings it back. Would not hurt to check the overall measurements of the shirt as compared to similar shirts Bean has on the market to be sure it is just not the sleeves. Nice color and could be a terrific product for many years.

I am very excited to see these new LONGER LENGTH tops! That is a fantastic update that I wish LLBean would make to all of their tops. The color choices are beautiful! I only wish this was offered in plus sizes. =( I very much hope that will be an option in the near future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WisconsinBadgerGirl Great fitting shirt! Nice fabric and cute!
I LOVE this shirt! In fact, after I received it I went online to check out the colors to order more! I ordered the coral/red stripe shirt. First off, it is the right length for me (5'7"). I was so pleased with the longer length. I am unable to order the Pima tees because they are always too short! This is perfect. The square neck is cute and the elbow length sleeves are great. It is slightly fitted and flattering -- not too loose. I ordered a Large (I am 178#).
I was afraid the coral/red combo might be too bright, but I like it. The material is thick and nice. Recommend!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by daffodil Nice shirt!
I ordered the pale peach (plain, not striped) and I'm very happy with it. The style, with the square neckline and elbow sleeve length, adds some flair and makes a nice change from a regular t-shirt. It's longer in length than I expected, so I find it more suitable tucked in than out.

I am completely satisfied with this shirt. It accomplishes the rare feat of being elegantly modest yet stylish. The neckline is beautiful, and the sleeve length is flattering. The fabric is dense, so it does not look or feel cheap. And the longer length is great. I think it has the potential for longevity like Bean's Sailor Tee. In the past I have found many of Bean's shirts to be too dowdy in fit and sometimes in style, but this one is a winner. I will be purchasing in more colors.

Rated 3 out of 5 by marintwinmom More stripe options
I would like to see the stripes with a scoop neck or V-neck in 3/4 or long sleeves. I don't like boatnecks because they show my bra straps, and crew necks are not flattering on me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by NMDreamer I wanted to love it
I loved both the neckline and the sleeve length, and was very excited about this tee in both colors. Huge disappointment when I tried it on. I should have looked closer at the photo with the model. This tee is LONG. It came all the way down below the top of my thighs. It is cut straight, whereas I am not, so it fit great across the shoulders and bust but was too tight and awkward looking through the hips and thighs. I bought this in both colors, and they are both going back.
Why is Bean making tops so very, very, very long these days?

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanershopaholic Lovely, flattering neckline!!
I really loved this shirt. I usually order medium in tops from llbean. I am a size 12 across all brands, and the medium fit well. I ordered the blue and the white. I could see my black bra through the white one, but a neutral toned undergarment won't be noticeable. The neckline is super flattering. Quite elegant-especially in the white. A very nice addition to my wardrobe. The sleeves felt a tad snug on my arms, but it wasn't uncomfortable or anything.
