Rated 2 out of 5 by eluna won't stay shut!
I love the look and feel of this shirt. I would wear it all the time, but the buttons refuse to stay buttoned. I have to pin it on which is a pain, so I find I don't wear it very often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JustRozy Great shirt, IMO
I love this shirt--style, fit, drape, versatility (in or out/jewelry/fit under a jacket), ease of care! I have navy, teal, 2 blues & white. Just tried to order another of each (exc. blue) but all sold out of PM.
I am very disappointed that LL Bean does not have this in the Fall catalog! For Fall there are other styles in this material--for me, necklines too low & cardigan seems to have a lot of material around midsection--I'll try the scrunch neck. PLEASE, dear LL Bean, consider bringing back the classic shirt style for next season. I wish there were a true red or evergreen for now; I was sure there would be!

Rated 2 out of 5 by missran Almost perfect, but....
Love this shirt. Just got two, one small in light peach and one medium in blue. The small fits like it was custom made and is perfect with jeans or under a suit jacket. The medium looks good too; just a bit more casual and feels roomier without being sloppy. High quality fabric, washes well, excellent colors and nice length on sleeves and hem ( I'm 5' 5" 130 #).
So, why two stars? The buttons pop open with just the slightest pull from either side of the shirt. Wore it most of the day without noticing this and had decided I loved it and was keeping both shirts. Pulled it over my head (with half the buttons undone) and the rest of the buttons popped open. Then I tested it fully buttoned. Any tug from either side (as if a child/ infant grabbed hold for a second) caused anywhere from one to all the buttons to pop open. I convinced myself that wouldn't happen (I don't have children around anymore) so It'd be OK to keep at least one of the shirts. I knelt down to greet a tiny dog I know and she reached up to lick my face - as I stood up to greet her owner I glimpsed my bra fully exposed... all but one button had popped from the momentary touch of the puppy's foot!
So, these shirts I love, that fit and launder so well have to go back. Might try exchanging them since so many others seem happy - maybe it's just a defect on certain shirts. Will edit this review if I have any luck with that.

I have this in the ledge. I really like it and came online today to order a medium in white. It is sold out and I hope you restock.

Rated 4 out of 5 by shewearspurple Soft, lightweight jacket
I probably should have ordered this a size larger, as I intend to wear it as a sweater over summer tops. However, it fit just fine as is, buttoning down the front without straining. The sea foam color works well with a couple of print tees I've been trying to find cardigans for--the color online was exactly the color of the product. It also will go nicely with many solid summer tees I have, and make a transitional piece over turtlenecks in the fall, or buttoned up under a sweater.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BeadingLady disappointed
This is a pretty looking shirt and it has a lovely, soft hand. However, it wrinkles coming from the dryer and has to be ironed. Because of the fabric, ironing is difficult. I own several Bean cotton/modal tees that look great out of the dryer so I was surprised to see this one did not. I'll keep it but I would not buy it again because I don't like to iron.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MicheleB Perfect for travel or work!
This top with perfect fit pants is my go to business travel combo. SOOOOOOO comfortable and looks fairly dressy/work presentable. I would not call this a T. Would like to see this in shorter sleeve lengths for summer, but in the plane I always want long sleeves due to chance of cooler temps. The lilac is lovely and ordered the light blue and light green to come. Yep pricey, but I wear it a lot and got my money's worth. Super easy care.

Rated 5 out of 5 by monters Great shirt, but a little bit pricey
I love this shirt--mainly because of the super-soft Modal fabric. I ordered one in white, and then in lilac. I would love this in all the colors, but at $50 a pop, that's a lot of money. I use it instead of a turtleneck, but this runs more than double the price! OF course, it's more versatile than a turtle neck, and better for summer. If the price doesn't bother you, order them all! Now I see that they are out of my size in navy: bummer. I wish I had ordered it in navy too. I hope they get them back in, and start offering even more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnnAnn Beautiful fabric, perfect fit
Absolutely delighted with the shirt that arrived just now. Petite medium fits me (5'1", 38" bust) perfectly. This will be a really useful casual jacket for spring either alone or, unbuttoned, with a t-shirt underneath. The fabric is soft and stretchy, very comfortable. I'd buy a black one, if it was available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KentuckySurfer Love This Shirt
The description calls it a t-shirt but for me it's the perfect blouse to wear with a suit, slacks, or jeans. I'm 5'6 and weigh 128 and got the XS ... fits like a dream. I have 3 so far and will order another one because they're so versatile and you can dress them up or down. Love that they're fitted too...tucks in nicely without looking bulky or sloppy. Would love this in a 3/4 sleeve length--hint hint!
