Rated 3 out of 5 by nolamom15 Very short in sleeves and length
I loved the quality of this turtleneck, but I was really disappointed in the length. After washing it, the problem was even worse. Anytime I raised my arms slightly, the shirt came up to show my skin. The sleeve length is almost 3/4 length on me. I bought an XS, I am 5'5" and 110 pounds. This is the issue I have with a lot of LL Bean clothes - buying a larger size means it's way too big in the body, but the XS is too short in length and sleeves. Bummer. It is really soft and a nice quality weight. I would have bought it in several colors if the first one had worked out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Authentic Basic is not boring . . .
I do not know how this kept happening on my tablet, but this is a review for the charcoal grey turtleneck.
Wonderfully comfortable as a base layer. Looks equally well on its own worn alone.
I wore mine with the neckline scrunched, as pictured on the model. As another reviewer stated, you cannot minimize the importance of quality basics to anchor a good looking wardrobe.
For information purposes, I purchased an XS, which is my regular Signature size. I am a tad under 5' 4", and weigh between 98 and 100. I am a full 32 B. The turtleneck is neither skimpy nor baggy. I plan to wash by hand in cold water and dry flat as I want to preserve the pristine quality of the fine cotton as well as the integrity of the size.
Hurry and get one while they last. Seems like quantities are limited. I am sure Signature will bring this back next season. Like the uncuffed sleeves that were featured on the grey.
Just an added note. I have not tried the striped, thus I can not comment on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by edumom12 Good fitting turtleneck
Like everything about this turtleneck. The collar stays up, material is stretchy enough to fit close to the body but not be clingy, arms and body are long enough, nice charcoal grey colour. Didn't shrink with washing. Fabric is a bit lighter than the Pima cotton shirts but not too thin. I'm 5'9" and 165 lbs, and the large fits well. Will order another if other colours are available.

The shirt is soft to the touch and feels good on. It runs big. I am 5' 105 lbs and i ordered it in small.

Rated 5 out of 5 by activeoutdoorsylady just a superb layer
I use these as a base layer for the winter. The thinner fabric wears like a silk top and provides just enough warmth and neck coverage. Have bought several and wear daily. I did buy a size up and after many machine washings and dryings, they fit perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by horsesandcats Cute turtleneck
I bought this turtleneck in the mustard/goldenrod color and I love it! The fit is perfect, great for laying without adding bulk. The neck is soft and comfortable. I think this shirt runs very true to size. After laundering, it kept its shape and did not shrink. Very pleased with this top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by n9537q Don't underestimate the importance of good basics!
Great layering piece. I am 5'6", 135lbs, 34C and the small size worked perfectly. The sleeves are amply long and I have longish arms. I purchased the gray and brown colors, and I think that they will be great layering pieces. They seem to have a nice drape and look like they are good quality. LLBean please make other colors- a nice royal blue or black with white windowpane design perhaps?

This review is specifically about the striped T--not the solid colored T's. This one is different in two ways: there are no cuffs and its tag-less--meaning no sewn-in tag. Instead, it's stamped onto the shirt and--alas--can be seen from the outside. So anyone who happens to notice, will be able to do some mirror reading through the shirt. This also causes the shirt to be a bit "rumpled" beneath the print. I'm not certain I'll keep the shirt, and wonder whether LL Bean can tell me whether the print will wash off in the laundry? I'd recommend the shirt only to someone who is forewarned of the tag. (I have four of the solid shirts and like them a lot.)

I have this in two colors and wear them every chance I can. Feel great and wash, dry well. Wish I could have some other colors. Only reservation is the cuff on the sleeves which makes it a bit less dressy. It feels so good that I can live with that.
