Rated 5 out of 5 by Vonbozac My New Favorite Shirt
These shirts are a modern take on the LL Bean classic. Perfect collar (not button down) and great fit. I'm a big guy so the slim fit worried me, but it's just right. The shoulders are perfect and the length is great, you can really wear these untucked and not look sloppy. The traditional flannels are great, but very big and boxy, I can't say enough about the superior cut of this shirt.
Also the next best thing is the patterns and the fabric. These are not as thick as the traditional flannels, but you can wear them longer in the year now and they are still very soft.
I'm considering buying all of the colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by SCubed Nice shirt, definitely not slim
The quality of the shirt is as expected with all LL Bean stuff. The material is soft and definitely lighter than other flannel shirts. The sizing is odd. I'm 6'4", 195 lbs and wear a lot of slightly slim or slim fitted shirts from various companies. Unfortunately, because I have long arms, I have to order the tall XL to get the right sleeve length. After reading the reviews, I thought an XL slim would fit perfect. Let's just say I would hate to see what the slightly slim or regular XL is like because I have to take this shirt to my tailor to have more taken in on the sides to actually make it more of a tailored/slim look. It's not a big deal but I'm looking forward to wearing it once it's back. Again, the quality of the shirt is unmatched and right up there with everything else I've ever bought from LL Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by D18Love Favorite LL Bean Shirt So Far
I recently decided to start stocking up on large/tall clothes while getting rid of my XL stuff which doesn't fit well. I've ordered from various online retailers known for large/tall sizes, and this has been my favorite shirt thus far. I don't even want to take it off for bed, it's very comfortable. I'll add a few colors to my wardrobe, but the blue looks excellent with khakis or jeans. It's warm and everything fits great on my 6'4 200 pound form.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NewHampshireHoosier Comfy Tailored Fit Appropriate for Many Occasions
When I first tried on the Alpine color for this shirt, it was clear that LL Bean had once again created a great product. I've worn the shirt into the office, my night classes, and for weekend outings to the winery and bars. In each setting, I've received compliments. Usually, I wear it with the light khaki or navy Double L Chinos.
As a slender dude (5'9 ~140lbs), I was worried the shirt may not fit in the right places. However, it's a great fit - not too loose and not too tight.

Rated 1 out of 5 by joral poor fit/mismatch plaids/not flannel
was delighted to find this shirt after reading reviews happy to buy.
Shirt was not double sided flannel. I could not feel flannel at all.
The back of shirt was tight, the chest was loose. Husband has very fit body. Shirt fit (med) was good shoulders and arm lengths.
Material was nice quality, though. The plaid did not match due to button placement. The shirt was returned. Bean is always a good company to deal with, we have done so for over thirty years, but the merchandise is so different in sizing lately that it is so hard.

Rated 4 out of 5 Nice shirt
Love the red ones.
Some trouble with sizes: XL Tall ones are too wide for me (do not believe slip photo models on the site). L Tall fit precisely except collar.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 8pints Great fit and fabric
I'm 180 lbs and 5'10" and ordered a large-- it fits perfectly. I'm usually a M in most non-Sig. LL bean shirts but the sleeves are never really long enough. This shirt is the perfect length in the sleeves and body and not too slim- Bean finally got the fit right! The fabric is really soft and a nice light weight. If only there were more colors available-- I have the classic navy and would order more of these in other colors but can't stomach the ember or flint patterns and the other colors are sold out. I'll keep an eye out for new colors, or a re-release of the red or yellow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by GuyWhoShops Great feel, great fit
I was concerned that the shirt wouldn't be quite slim enough, and that the shirttail would be too long while worn untucked--I was wrong on both accountants! The shirt is trim--while not being overly trim or restricting--and the length is just right for wearing the shirt untucked. The fabric is oh so soft, and is pleasantly lightweight for flannel. I've already ordered a second one in red!

Rated 5 out of 5 by OldFolkieGram A 'dressy" flannel shirt!
Very handsome plaid, clear deep colors. Son-in-law put it on, right out of the box, Christmas morning and wore it all day.
A very happy camper! Will probably skip the dryer and hang to dry, as there hasn't been a flannel invented that doesn't shrink, even from MR. Bean's Emporium.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Fastman LLBean disappointment
I buy LL Bean for quality, and consistency, but this flannel shirt was a disappointment. Pockets are so short they're only for looks. Forget putting your cell phone in one. The material was also very thin. Not what I expected from LL Bean.
