Rated 5 out of 5 by jackblackhack Like the new fit and fabric
I have always like this polo, very durable, and looks good. The new fit is slightly slimmer and the fabric seems softer, yet still durable. Best polo I have purchased at any price. In other brands I normally wear a large, but always have sized down for this polo, and previously it was still a little baggy. I am 6 foot, 195 with a bit of a belly, and the new fit is perfect for me.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Stingball Tighter Fit Doesn't Work
I purchased this polo shirt a month ago and have to agree with other reviewers that the tighter fit does not work. I bought this same shirt last year when it had the original, larger Traditional Fit which fit me just fine and I love it.
However, this tighter fit is too tight in the shoulders and upper chest and it does not fit well on my body like the old version did. Felt so awkward and uncomfortable that I knew I wouldn't wear it, so I returned it.
Us bigger middle aged guys need a fuller cut, so wondering if they are going after the younger hipsters with this recent tighter size change. If so, why not have two fits (fuller and tighter) that customers can choose from? If they go back to the old size, I will buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by reader256 Great polos!
On a recent shopping trip with my son for polo shirts we stopped at several stores and he finally found what he wanted at the LL Bean retail store. These polos are light without the heavy collars of some other brands which never dry - they come out of the wash and dryer looking great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AcornMan FINALLY a shirt that fits
I'm tall and slim (6' 4" and about 180 lbs), so even when I'm lucky enough to finds shirts that are long enough, the sleeves are almost always gigantic. For instance, the sleeves on the non-fitted version of the Double L Polo are so huge that I can literally fit both arms through one of them. But this one fits perfectly. I'm ordering several more because I love it so much.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dadbod Traditional Fit is not modern day skinny fit
I too have bought these shirts for years. Its what I love about LL Bean, they don't change and offer reliable sizing for on-line/catalog ordering. I am so disappointed with this new fit. If you wish to sell a slim/skinny fit shirt, fine, do so, but do not call it a traditional fit that many of your trusting customers have come to enjoy and purchase. There is nothing traditional about this tight fit fad the fashion industry is experiencing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by OutdoorEnthusiast111 Not Traditional Fit...
The new re-design of the fit of these shirts is terrible. They are tight in the shoulder and upper arm areas, and not relaxing to wear at all. If you like feeling constricted in your movements with little or NO freedom to relax, play and enjoy working in your yard, then this shirt is for you. The fit is now consistent with a young person's body, so if you are an average size for middle age or older, think about this before you buy this newly designed shirt. LL Bean: Why change a that we could count on year after year? Some things are better left alone, and this is one of them....please bring the classic traditional fit back!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ThisIsStupid Thanks for make these Tall
Although I am only 6'2" I have trouble with the length on many shirts, even tall sizes due to a low waist. These are no problem. Excellent length. Very nice shirts that hold up well. Just ordered 2 more to add to the collection.

This shirt washes well and looks much better than those made by other companies. After several washings, it still looks great and sheds wrinkles.

Rated 2 out of 5 by NorCalBeanHead It's TRUE. Sleeves too tight/short now
I've been buying this XL-TALL Double L Polo shirt for probably 6 years now. It fit perfectly, was nice, long and full traditional cut. Now the XL-TALL no longer fits the same near the upper chest and mainly the sleeves. Feels like it's trimmer. My under shirts I wear under them now hang out the sleeves. Another reason having full cut sleeves is nice. I already email Customer Service to let them know I was disappointed. What a bummer they can't just leave the perfect Polo alone.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mark4491 Great shirt!
I am an old guy and have worn many different polo shirts over the years. This is probably the best. The fabric is soft but substantial enough, the narrower cut is very nice but not dramatically different, the collar sits properly, and the colors are rich and deep. Finally, the size seems true.
