Rated 5 out of 5 by smokymountainhiker7 good, casual flannel
I bought this in a size small for my husband, who has a slimmer athletic build. L.L. Bean tops are usually a little loose on him, but not sloppily so. He likes having a little extra room to move around. The quality is wonderful and he wore it nearly every day this past fall and winter. I'm planning to buy him one or two more this year so he can have a few to rotate. The fabric feels slightly different from the day he first got it, but no less durable or presentable. Just more worn in.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Pinetar Nice quality, weird fit
I just received this shirt, and I'm not quite sure if I'll keep it. The quality of this shirt is fantastic--the flannel is thick, soft, and warm. The fit, however, is not what I hoped for or expected. I bought another flannel shirt (one of the scotch plaids) in the same size and I would say the same thing about it: great shirt, weird fit.
For work, I wear dress shirts and suits everyday. I wear a 16" neck, 35" sleeve, and 40" chest. Basically, I'm 6'2" and have a somewhat narrow build.
I bought medium tall shirts. Large shirts usually are billowy on me with my narrower shoulders and chest. I bought tall, because a medium shirt with a 33" sleeve looks awkwardly short on my arms, meaning that I always have to roll up the sleeves.
The result with this medium tall shirt: sleeves that are a perfect length, good fit on the shoulders, a relaxed chest (emphasis on the "slightly" in "slightly fitted"), and shirt tails that go two or three inches below the crotch of my pants.
There's no way I can wear this shirt untucked--it's just way too long. I would have to be 6'6" for the length to look normal, but then, how many 6'6" guys do you see that wear a 35" sleeve and 40" chest? I really don't have a terribly uncommon build. It makes me wonder whether the models in the photos have their sleeves rolled up because otherwise they would obviously be too short, since the untucked length of the tails looks normal on them. I had hoped to have something more versatile that could be worn tucked, untucked, over another shirt or alone, etc. This doesn't fit the bill.
In summary--if you can find your size in this shirt or plan on wearing it tucked in, it's a great shirt. If I end up keeping it it's because the quality is great, it's a classy shirt, and it seems like it would last forever. I just really wish it fit better untucked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NY108 Love this shirt!
This shirt is exactly what I would expect from L.L. Bean - perfect fit and superior quality. I am a size "large tall" which is not always easy to find, and I'm so glad that many of your products like this shirt are available in my size. Thank you for your outstanding product selection, top quality merchandise, and always accommodating customer service!

Rated 4 out of 5 by RetiredShipper Freeport shirt for winter
This garment is soft and comfortable. The size may be a little large, but not overly so. I have several LL Bean flannel shirts and I would recommend them for your winter wardrobe. This was a Christmas Gift, I love LL bean merchandise !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ConstantLLBeanShopper Great Newer Colors on Classic Flannel Shirt
I'm a big fan of L.L. Bean's flannel shirts, but needed more colors from the classic ones offered in Scotch Plaid. I loved the color combinations in the Freeport Flannel, and bought one of each of them. Very comfortable and sizing was just right.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Setterman1313 decent shirt, crazy sizing
Sizing is off on this shirt. I'm 6', 225lbs, 47" chest, and wear a 17.5x36 dress shirt. Ordered a Regular XL. Sleeve length is borderline. If the shirt would shrink, the sleeves would be too short. Body length on the other hand is the exact opposite, long enough to be considered "Tall". The chest is wildly over sized for it's tagged size. My XL measured 56", what I'd expect an XXL or even XXXL to measure. Sent the shirt back to exchange for a Tall Large, which will be a half inch longer in the sleeve, and 52" in the chest (about what you'd expect a bigger XL to be). Material is soft, but not particularly heavy. Will need a layer on underneath in the dead of winter. Decent shirt, though a touch over priced.

Rated 2 out of 5 by HollywoodRick Went right back.
Extremely disappointed in this item. Very thin material, late Spring or early Fall would be the best time to wear. The collar and two chest pockets seem out of place in a strange way, odd sizing and the color isn't true. Much brighter than pictured. Old LL struck on this one. Sorry, I usually do well, but ......

Just what I wanted. Comfortable, good fit. I am 5'9, 180 lbs, and a 17-33 in a dress shirt. This is fine.
