Rated 4 out of 5áby shirttail mini check--- lovely---but oh those awful buttons!
I really love the mini check spruce and the wild aster shirts, but both have those awful white buttons. I changed the buttons on both and now the shirts look like quality shirts. The white buttons made them look real cheap.
I am surprised that a company like LL Bean would approve something like those awful buttons. Perhaps costs less for them to make all buttons white??
Still the only company I will buy from. Most things are quality and the service is the best one can imagine.!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Racram WRINKLE RESISTANT MINI-TARTAN/EASY CARE MINI-CHECK
I wore the Wrinkle-Resistent Mini-Tartan shirt in the Ayrshire today and it reminded me how much I like this shirt. It drapes beautifully, stays wrinkle-free all day and feels wonderful on. Some of the shirts are too fitted for me. I prefer my shirts and tops a little bit loose. I bought a large so it wouldn't cling anywhere. I'm 5'2" about 145. The sleeves may have been a little long, but I wore it with the cuff unbuttoned and turned up and they were perfect. I wore it out over dark blue jeans & got a very slimming effect. I was comfortable and looked well dressed -- albeit casually so. I'd recommend this shirt to anyone. The "Wrinkle Resistant Mini-Tartan" shirts aren't available anymore, but the "Easy-Care Mini-Check" ones are. I'm hoping they're the same fabric because I just bought two of them!

Rated 5 out of 5áby mtbjane A perfect shirt
I am loving the fit on this shirt! I ordered the xs in regular although I am 5'2". I prefer the longer length of regular sizing. The sleeves are a bit long, but there is contrast fabric inside the cuff so I want to wear my sleeves rolled up to show the contrast.
The shirt fits me perfectly. There is a lot of stretch so it doesn't pull. I machine wash in cold and dry on low setting. I still iron the shirt since I am very picky about little wrinkles.
The floral print is very dainty and I like to wear a denim jacket with white jeans for a casual look or a navy blazer with jeans for a more formal look. I roll up the sleeves of the shirt and jacket/blazer for more styling.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TorontoGirl Perfect Shirt
I have collected 4 Easy-Care Stretch Poplin shirts in different prints over the past couple of years, and I like them so much that I am slowly replacing all of my button-down work shirts with them. They come out of the dryer ready to wear; the colours have stayed bright after many washings; the cut is flattering; and they are comfortable. I have just ordered 3 more. Keep up the good work, L.L. Bean!

Rated 5 out of 5áby CatWoman Fabulous shirt!
I got this recently in Spruce XS, and it is my favorite. It has a feminine cut and the fabric is lightweight. It washes and dries beautifully with no need to iron. It still looks crisp after washing. I am 5' 2", 110 pounds the the shirt is a perfect fit. Thank you L L Bean!

Rated 4 out of 5áby sweatersavvy Almost perfect easy care plaid shirt
I agree with the reviewer who said the dark plaids should have dark buttons on them rather than white buttons, which don't go with the autumnal look of this shirt. White buttons are good for the summery looking pastel plaid shirts. I received a dark plaid in the mail yesterday and am so pleased with the shirt, other than the buttons, I ordered another dark mini-check,and the pastel coral plaid, with which whit buttons are appropriate. I am 5'8" 165 lbs. and th extra large fits perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5áby ldshopper lovely floral print
The floral print is beautiful. The petite XL fit my 165 pound, 38D bust and 5'1 frame really well. The 4% spandex provides for a customized fit. Great Spring shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5áby aqua Favorite Shirt Style!
These Easy-Care Stretch Poplin Shirts are my current favorite style. Fitted just enough to look feminine but not too tight. Length is good. Fabric is not too thin. The seams don't bunch up like some of their other stretch shirt styles.
