Rated 5 out of 5áby Mouse1999 The only real no iron man's shirt I have found!
A great shirt for working in an office setting or going out to a restaurant.
LL Bean's pinpoint oxford is the only non Iron shirt I have purchased that really does not need to be ironed if you hang it up straight out of the dryer. I have purchased no iron shirts from other places that are priced the same or more than this one and they need to be ironed. I am donating the shirts that need to be ironed as they hardly are ever available for wearing!

Rated 3 out of 5áby LTCustomer00 Wrinkle-resistant pinpoint oxford shirts
I have purchased variants of these point oxford shirts for many years. They have classic styling and are functional. This type of shirt is needed in many wardrobes. LL Bean created a nice niche for itself with this product; the shirts were priced lower than upscale competitors, but higher than discount retail outfitters. The wrinkle resistant aspect of the shirts is a real time-saver and convenience.
However, I echo the comments of other readers who have noted that the collars and sleeves start to fray WAY too early on these shirts. I assume that quality can vary year to year depending on the supplier of fabric. However, these shirts, like LL Bean chinos, are products that your consumers use on a frequent basis. They are not blazers that come out once a year; they are workhorses of the wardrobe.
This is why the recent problem with fabric durability in these shirts is a problem greater than LL Bean might imagine. Every time a customer reaches for a shirt to wear and then sees a frayed collar or notices the shirt slowly dying, it creates buyer's remorse and undermines the entire premise of the LL Bean experience.
We all know that the shirts will eventually need to be retired, but are surprised and disheartened when the clock starts ticking after a few months of wear. The remedy is not to offer a refund or apology for those who flag the issue; LL Bean needs to improve the quality of these shirts and protect its brand.
In short, LL Bean need to redouble its efforts on this particular product. It is wonderful in concept and utility; it just needs to last much longer in practice.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Barinr No lasting power
When I first purchased one of these shirts I loved it. Good feel, light weight and comfortable, but it hasn't worn well. It's maybe six months old and holes are appearing around the cuffs and the cuffs are fraying. It is in with a regular rotation with shirts from other retailers, but it is the only one showing wear. It's not a case of too much wear, it's a case of not well made. It just doesn't last!

Rated 1 out of 5áby TexasJG This Shirt Is Not a Good Value
The fabric of the Wrinkle Resistant Pinpoint Oxford Shirt Solid is too thin. Not at all what I expect in a pinpoint shirt.
Unfortunately I will not return it because I have removed the tags and packing material, ironed out the creases from shipping, and hung it in my closet. It is a hassle to pack and ship it back.
So I will keep it, probably donate it, and never again by a dress shirt from LLBean.
I am disappointed.

Rated 3 out of 5 Torn over the shirt
I am torn over a shirt that looks great for the first 8 months then starts to unravel and wear at the collar and sleeves. I love the shirt but it wears too fast. I have other LLBean shirts that show less wear after 5 years. For a plus $50 shirt it is not worth replacing in less than a year. What happened to the quality???

I have bought 6 or 8 of these over the past 4 years or so. They are incredible. Wrinkle free as advertised. Perfect for everyday wear right out of the dryer. Use an iron only if you are forced to wear a blazer and tie. They are extremely durable. No sign of wear.

Rated 1 out of 5áby RK000 Collar already starting to wear thin
I've had this shirt less than 1 year, wear it once a week, wash it on delicate cycle, dry low and the collar is already wearing thin...the material is not holding up...durability for cost just isn't there...also bought the Oxford Classic and they are really holding up...I'd recommend that over this shirt.
