Rated 3 out of 5 by Mouselor Different from 2 years ago
I bought one of these shirts 2 years ago in cream and navy and still wear it ALL the time in the spring and summer. I have paired it over denim dresses as a sweater and worn it with jeans and shorts as a top. It is a great summer top that still looks nice enough for my casual-business-casual workplace(s) but is light in the summer. I bought it again this summer because my husband suggested a second top would be good since I wear it so often. This time I bought the light pink and cream one. It is WAY bigger than the old one (even though I bought the same size) but I am wondering if that is because my old one slowly shrank and shrank over the many washes? Recently my new one snagged. I have never had a snag in my old one that I wore regularly, and I am a little disappointed. So, it feels like the quality has maybe decreased a bit. Still, I love the cut (even though my newer one is a bit baggy) and the classic styling.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gmof2 Found the right fit
I am 5'2", 130 lbs, 34B, small frame. I sometimes wear a petite top but the regular small looks very nice. Length to hips. Nice boat neckline, not too large. I got the Heather/Cream and the Navy/Cream. The cream works fine with white bottoms. The heather blue looks good with khaki or black bottoms and some shades of blue. The fabric is a nice weight knit, almost like a summer sweater. The 3/4 length sleeve works for cooler nights.

Rated 1 out of 5 by LaurieLE Confusing reviews
I have to wonder if this top is made in different factories or something because some reviews are opposite what others say. For example, some say the shirt is soft, I found it very rough and scratchy.
-I think it should be called a sweater (in fact, I think several years ago they DID call it a sweater). I was expecting more of a t-shirt weight, but it is much heavier than that.
-Some reviewers said the shirt was too short. I found it to an appropriate length.
-Finally, I have tons of LLB tops and wear the same size every time. This one, was tight.
Unfortunately this item was a disappointment and will be returned.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Doggerfolk Nice Shirt BUT Heavy Material
I purchased the navy/cream color and really loved this shirt - even though the material was a bit thick and heavy to wear this time of year in Oklahoma. Ultimately I returned the shirt because the navy looked black next to navy slacks. I would like to order another color but I'm having a having a hard time getting past the thickness of the material.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lini60 my favorite shirt
I have a few of these shirts that I just love. They wash up well and never need ironed. Only wish it came in black & off white. Was able to get one a few years ago and really wish the black stripe was available again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Deew58 Love this shirt
I really like this shirt. I bought 2 last year and 2 more this year in different colors. The only problem I've found, is that I ordered a blue and orange and when they came, the orange one was about 5 inches longer than the blue one, but they were both marked regulars. Not sure what the deal was. Also, on one that I bought last year, the hem totally unravelled and I'm going to have to hem it myself. Still love them. And it does wear very true to size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by pnwyogini Wonderful top
What a comfortable, stylish shirt. Fit is perfect, fabric feels good against the skin (soft, not harsh), and the stripes and boatneck are attractive. Thanks, LL Bean, I love it!

Rated 3 out of 5 by SWC13 So disappointed
I loved this shirt and have ordered 3 of them. They all fit well and seemed very nice. Unfortunately, all of them have developed small holes in the fabric after a very short time. I will not order any more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by OutintheSouthWest More colors, please!
I really like the heavier weight of this fabric -- it's more sturdy and looks and feels classier than a standard knit. I have several of the existing colors, but I really wish you all would bring in a few more shades of earth tones (warmer shades) for those of us who look better in those color hues? Please?
Love the quality of this shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Greeneggs A favorite!
I think this shirt is very comfortable and it washed well. I bough a medium/indigo-cream and it fits perfect! I am 5'10, but small-chested so maybe that is why it works well? I am ordering 2 more today.
I love the 3/4 sleeve because short sleeve end up to short on my thick upper arms and long sleeve are just uncomfortable.
I love LL Beans 100% guaranteed return policy. I do not mind paying the shipping back especially since if a products shrinks or something after washing I can get my $$ back. I would rather pay the shipping than waste the space in my closet not wearing it. I cannot afford to just give brand new things away that don't fit....
