Rated 5 out of 5áby PersonalStyle Hugged my arms and body with rib knit ease.
None of my dozen LLB tops fit my long bodied, broad shoulders so well. Stretch from the rib knit provided comfort in this better fitting style. I am a large, 5'6 170 pound senior citizen. An elderly store clerk said, "I don't want to sound inappropriate, but you look especially nice today." Now THAT is one great tee shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5áby cascabin2827 Love This Shirt!
I got this in lt. gray and it instantly became my favorite shirt. Just purchased 5 more in navy, cream, woodrose, moss, and teal. I would love purple! I agree with the reviewer who said the styling is a cut above other henleys. The colors I chose are perfect for me.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Pokeyclown Fitted To a Tee
I only buy stripes if they?re very subtle or very special. This ż sleeve henley in Lt. Grey Heather/White Stripe is both. I immediately bought the tank in the same colors.
The fabric is substantial in thickness. I prefer this on a warm, even hot day, as it absorbs moisture without ?see-through?, and doesn?t stick to you like slub cotton.
The neckline is both modern and private at the same time. A mini-scoop, if you will. The ż sleeves stop 1 1/2 inches above my wrist bone.
This Rib-Knit line is ?fitted? and that works best on me, although my size seems roomier than past incarnations. I?ve heard that you need to machine wash and dry cotton 3 times before it obtains its final fit. So I did that and now it?s fitted to a tee. Likewise with the tank.
I also like this henley?s style. A nod to the designer for those dropped shoulder seams in front. They give it a bit of panache so it?s not just any old henley. Ditto for that horizontal seam in back at shoulder blade level. It distinguishes it from the pack. Best of all, from a rear view, it distracts the onlooker?s eye upward and away from my own REAR view.
And for that I couldn?t be more grateful.

Rated 2 out of 5áby lakehouselady Bring back the old scoop neck style 3/4 slv dbl l
I hate the buttons. I hate the back yoke. Please bring back the old scoop neck 3/4 sleeve double l tee. It was sleek and figure flattering. This years style is just not that nice.

Rated 4 out of 5áby CopaceticPJC Nice Option
I ordered this top in the Clear Emerald, and returned it for two reasons: the shade of green was too bright for me, and I didn't care for the yoke seam across the upper back. I liked the weight of the fabric but wound up purchasing a different style of shirt. I really appreciate LL Beans shipping and return policies, thank you.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Horizonlover didn't work for me
I have this fabric in other shirts and I like it very much, it drapes well without clinging and it washes well. The shirt is well made (those buttons are functional!) and I'm sure it will suit others.
It's the cut of this shirt that didn't work for me. The neck opening is too wide and my bra straps were exposed to too high a degree, and the fit is a little too fitted for my slim but chesty shape.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Run6014 Looked better online
Likes: color ("maritime orange"), material, and fit.
Dislikes: I don't like the neckline (boring) and three buttons (not enough buttons to really stand out). This shirt looked good online but reminded me of a pajama top when I tried it on.
Please note that I purchased a solid color; LL Bean's embedded title describes the shirt as a "stripe." Not sure if a striped version of this shirt would impact my "dislikes."

Rated 5 out of 5áby Marietta14 comfy and covers
Love this shirt. I am 5'10" tall, 160 lbs. with an athletic build. I am very long thru the torso. This shirt is cozy soft and drops nicely so it won't ride up. It is super cute with the cargo skirt. I bought a large in the navy/white stripe and light blue/white stripe. Light enough that I believe I will wear in the summer as well as spring.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Acquarian Rib knit t's
I wanted to comment on the solid color, but the form kept coming up for the stripe, so....
I love the Double L rib knit T's. They are well made from a substantial weight fabric and have a nice feminine cut, and the length is long enough for those of us who are considered tall.
Now, about Bean colors, please CHANGE! Navy is great, and the light gray is ok, but the other colors are terrible. It appears that Spring 2015 is worse than usual. Please give me some subtle, dusty, subdued colors, and not bright orange, turquoise, pastel blue, yellow, pink, etc. I already have navy and gray, so I can't buy any this year.

Rated 5 out of 5áby GardenBookWorm great fit
I just received two of these Double L Rib-Knit 3/4 sleeve Henley shirts, and I really like them. I prefer the fit of the Double L knit shirts to that of other LL Bean knit shirts. If this came in more colors I liked, I would definitely purchase more. I have long arms and a long torso, and the length of these shirts is perfect for me.
