Rated 5 out of 5 by GreatAuntofsix Sixth Sailor's Shirt
This is the BEST! I was sitting on a plane next to my niece who had on a similar shirt from another company and she decided she would order the shirt from L. L. Bean next time. Good quality. I have a couple in 1 X but now am down to easy XL but both fit fine.
Wish there was still the butter/cream(?).

Rated 5 out of 5 by daffodil Nice shirt!
This is a really nice shirt -- the fabric is heavier than the usual summer shirt, which makes it just right for fall! I bought the dark sable/wood rose and I'm very happy with it

Rated 1 out of 5 by CarmenSandiego rough to the touch & adds pounds!
I purchased this on sale for $18, but nevertheless will return it.
First, it feels rough to the touch despite being 100% cotton. I'm used to cotton being soft, so this was an unpleasant surprise. It might be the rib knitting, but it just didn't feel good on.
Second, the boxy cut and horizontal stripes does not flatter the figure. It adds pounds to my 5'1", 112 lbs frame.
Third, the boatneck doesn't cover my bra straps. I'm constantly tugging to hide them.
Fourth, the arms are too short in the Regular size! I'm short enough that, if anything, the 3/4 length arms should be too long. They barely passed my elbows.
The brightwater blue and peach color was lovely, but I have nothing else good to say.

Rated 5 out of 5 by funnyfeet great shirt and colors
I bought this in deep tidal teal with silver pine strips, and the color is vibrant and beautiful! It is a rare computer monitor which can really do justice to the real thing, and often they can be quite "off". This does look like the pic on my monitor- only BETTER, deeper and more vivid. The lighter stripes are soft and not too light or too contrasting.... I just loved it out of the bag!. I did not find this shirt short as some say, but then I am only 5 feet. I have had a couple of other French Sailor items over the years- one about 5 years old and the other from maybe 10+ years back- and I find the fabric quite consistent (though of course this has not been washed to a softer feel yet.) One thing I appreciate about this boat neck is that it is not cut as wide onto the shoulder as some, I have a round face and drawing the eye horizontally is a bad look for me, not to mention fussing with bra straps. This works fine. Very well made, I expect it will last like my others have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SoCalCookieBaker Fabulous Shirt
This is a great t-shirt: very roomy; quality fabric. The complaints in the reviews are not my experience. There's no odor. This is not a "sweater." It's just good quality, thick ribbed knit fabric. Perfect for cooler weather. (And the thick ribbed fabric allowed me to invisibly mend a tiny hole caused by my dog when he caught his nail on it.) I wore it through the Fall and Winter last year, but haven't pulled it out yet this year ... it hasn't been cool enough yet. I'm back looking to see if there are additional colors I'd like to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BaileyBearsMommy You have to wear this!
I purchased the Orange/Cornflower Blue and it is beautiful. I did not expect the material to be so soft and comfortable. It is almost like wearing a favorite sweater. It looks great tucked in or draped to the hips.I will be getting another one of these.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Sidewinder3 MORE COLORS!
Please, please please, make more 3/4 sleeve T-shirts! Plain jane styling that you can dress up or down. This shirt is a great shape, but how about some plain colors. Most of us can't wear side-to-side stripes. BTW, though this shirt doesn't have it, shoulder buttons are stupid and force the shirt to be more casual than necessary.

Rated 2 out of 5 by AmandaHK Neck Not Comfortable
I love the shirt it looks good, and seems to be comfortable except for the way the neck of the shirt does not rest on my neck area as it should. I wore my red/white striped one yesterday and was constantly pulling on the top of the shirt trying to rearrange it so that it wasn't up under my neck. The fit of the top as shown on the model,does not do the same on me. Two things disappoint me, one is that these products are not made in the USA and there are too few items for Womens' Plus sizes to choose from.

I was expecting a t-shirt weight top, but this was more like a sweater. It's a bit stretchy and very comfortable.

Not what I was expecting. When I received this in the mail I was very disappointed. The shirt is short, thick, and scratchy! I will be returning it.
