Rated 4 out of 5 by 5Kristin nice, casual top; may not work for tall people
I almost didn't order this because of some of the reviews, but it looked like the kind of fit I like, so I gave it a try. So now I'd like to say:
It didn't shrink at all when I washed and dried it.
It's not too short. I'm 5'3" and it fit me like it does the model. If you're taller, it will probably be too short and the sleeves will be too short, and I wouldn't think of tucking it in, but for me it's fine.
The body is very wide giving it a casual, pajama-y look. I like that because it covers my bulges.
The fabric is soft, medium thickness. The stitching is good quality.

This is a great shirt but the size medium fit like a large , and is a short length.

Rated 2 out of 5 by PriorLLBeanFan Another too short LLBean top!
I've been an LLBean fan now for many years & even got their credit card because I was buying so many clothes from them that it just made sense to do so. However, I must say that I've become disenchanted with the short length of their shirts/Tees/Henleys, like this one. I'm an average height 5'4" & wear a size 14/Large but even in prior years when I wore a size 12 I noted excessive shrinkage in shirt length, regardless of washing everything in cold water & drying on delicate. Sadly, this shirt is just another example: the color, material, style & quality of the shirt is otherwise outstanding; however, I must give it only 2 stars due to my disappointment in the length after washing.
LL Bean Administration - PLEASE listen to your Reviewers & change this or you will lose valuable customers!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Juniegrl Cute shirts but length is very short
I love the look & feel of these shirts. The neckline is very flattering. The colors are really nice, also -- I got a solid & a striped. I usually wear a petite but since the shirt doesn't come in petites I got the regular, & the sizing is ok -- a tad boxy but that's the difference between a petite & the regular misses. The problem with these shirts is that they're too short. I'm not even 5 feet tall, & if they're short on me they have gotta be waaaaay short on women of "normal" height. The sleeves are a little long on me (to be expected since it's not a petite) but though I like everything else about the shirt I can't recommend it because of the length.

What could be wrong with a "Saturday Henley?" Let me tell you, almost everything.
While the red striped shirt is pretty to look at, the sleeves are too short. Also, the shirt is short at the waist and shows my stomach when I raise my hand- which I do often being a teacher!
The other Henley 's are perfect, so I bought 2 of these predicting the same result, but sadly these are not even close.
Maybe I'll have to go back to the other casual catalog company!

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarolCola Surprisingly neat & comfortable
I ordered this shirt in the white with stripes, mainly because I wanted a shirt that was a little more interesting to wear than my everyday long sleeve crew neck shirts. The stripes, in black & brown look good with either black or khaki slacks. The sleeves are not too tight, an issue with some of the slimmer fitting shirts, yet look a step up from tee shirts. I have ordered two more in other colors. Only small quibble is the hem does not want to lie flat. I suppose that would be easily resolved with a touch -up iron ... if I owned one .... ;-).

Rated 5 out of 5 by T2smiley Perfectly named
I absolutely love these shirts! I am 5'3 and it is not too long, has lots of room (do not order up) and they are super soft. After dressing up all week long this is my perfect weekend shirt! I started with a short sleeve crew, ordered the long sleeve Henley and have since gotten 6 total. I would love more colors, these go great with jeans!

Rated 2 out of 5 by mgray Great for a PJ top
I have bought a few of these...I love the length of the sleeves but as soon as it is washed it becomes square...way too wide and too short. Great for PJ's on a cold night as it covers your wrists snugly but not too tight. It is way to casual and unconstructed to wear out of the house.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gagirl525 Love the short length
I am 5'2" and weigh 130. I usually wear a petite medium. I ordered a regular small and it was perfect. After washing in cold water I dried for 10 minutes on delicate and hung to finish drying. No shrinkage. I immediately ordered more colors.
I personally am sick of every single tee and shirt being so very long. Even when I order petite! Please LL Bean , not every woman wants to have a shirt hanging below her bum! So bring on more colors and patterns!

Rated 5 out of 5 by WardrobeByBean Great Casual Look
I love everything about the Saturday Henley. I especially love the high hip length - something nearly impossible to find anywhere else. I don't like to tuck my shirts in and for my body type (5'4" and thin upper body with some hips) these shirts work really well. The material is lighter weight than the crew neck, but I think that lends itself to the style, making it a little more polished casual look. The Saturday shirts are more of a relaxed fit so I buy them in small to wear for "good" and in a medium for wearing around the house and pairing with Bean's sleep pants for pajamas. Which goes to show you can go from wearing them "accessorized" up, as a clean everyday look, or as comfortable lounge wear.
