Rated 5 out of 5 by SedonaHiker Nice Shirt with a Few Surprises
I just received the dark loden color of this shirt and was immediately pleased. The flannel material feels a bit heavier than most I've owned and will come in handy during cool Fall and Winter nights. Also, on closer inspection I discovered a herringbone pattern woven into the flannel material - a nice touch. I've already worn it once and it is very comfortable and soft on the skin. Recommended.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AnaElizabeth Not a flannel shirt
I ordered this shirt in the forest green plaid; the colors are deeper and more attractive than the picture. However, the material is a heavy, soft, denim-like cotton; it is not flannel. L L Bean sells "real" flannel shirts, the Portuguese flannel shirts. My husband has several; they are soft, thick, warm flannel. But what is called the "Wicked Good Flannel Shirt" is not your traditional flannel. I don't think it's flannel at all. If you're looking for thick, soft flannel, buy a Portuguese flannel shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 Wick Good, YES!
I got two of these fine shirts for Christmas. One in "Bottle Blue" and the other in "Forrest Green". I'm very picky and not easily please with button up shirts, but these exceeded my expectations. They are extremely comfortable, and soft. I'm not easily pleased, but these shirt have pleased me very much. Highly recommend!!!

I originally bought this shirt in the Russet Plaid in my usual size of men's 2xl regular. When I tried it on, it was too big. I called the follks at LL Bean Customer Service in Freeport who suggested getting it one size down, which I did. The shirt fit nearly perfectly - the sleeves are just a tad long - and is very warm and comfortable to wear. I hope that next year this shirt is offered in more patterns. All in all, I really like this shirt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sunalsorises Runs Big
It's a nice shirt. It's a little thinner than I would have though but then again, it seems like more of a dress shirt made out of flannel than a flannel shirt. I was shooting for a nice, thick flannel shirt when I ordered but I will keep this because it is a nice shirt.
The shirt itself runs big. I normally wear large from LL Bean but the extra material on this shirt would actually lift me off the ground if it caught a gust of wind. Inventory was low at the time I ordered so returning it is not worth it to me. I'll wear it under sweaters until I gain about 50 pounds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jeremye1993 Great flannel but you need to size down
I bought the green one. I am 5'9 180 pounds, and for reference, I buy slim Medium in most brands. I had to order a small for this flannel and it fits excellently. The neck circumference is great, the sleeve length is perfect, and it's not tight at all. A little thicker, and this would be 100%. I'm still going 5/5 though. This flannel is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oldcoach Best flannel shirt ever made!
I'm convinced that this is the best flannel shirt ever made! I still have several flannel shirts from other vendors from over the years and they don't even come close to the fit and feel of this amazing shirt. The shirt looks good with khakis or jeans and has a classy appearance. I've already worn it several times since opening the box on Christmas Day. Better get one!

Rated 4 out of 5 by GrandpaChas Packaging a plus
Yeah, I'm supposed to wait 'til I've worn this a while before rating it, but I just washed my 25 year old LL Bean parka (slight visible wear, but quite presentable and comfortable), and I realized that if I waited, I'd never write the review. The shirt is comfortable and the correct size. But I was especially pleased by the packaging. This old guy with bad eyes hates playing hide and seek for pins. I didn't have to. The shirt was neatly folded, and the only packing material was a cardboard collar form. Now if you can just lose the plastic bag...

Rated 5 out of 5 by bstnh1 Excellent Shirt!
This is a somewhat unconventional flannel. It's not brushed and fuzzy like you'd expect. At first glance, it looks like a rather heavy traditional cotton shirt with a herringbone weave. But don't let those first glances deceive you. It's a very warm flannel that simply doesn't look like the traditional flannel you'd expect. The tailoring of the shirt is excellent. It's very well made. The fit of the medium is ideal. I haven't had it very long so I can't comment on its durability. But from all indications so far, I expect it'll be around a long time. I highly recommend this this shirt - and I'm one of the most critical and fussiest people you'd ever meet! lol
