Rated 4 out of 5 by AlineFromQuebec Happy but disappointed
When I first opened the package and realized the thin lining, I thought I had simply misread the product description. Alas, I hadn't! This lining offers nothing in the way of a warm fuzzy feel you would expect with real flannel, as posted. I already own the unlined version and otherwise, this shirt is fine. I love the softness of the corduroy and the color (deep red). I plan to wear this shirt indoors in the winter and outside in the early fall. Sadly though, it won't work for those October and November chilly days in Québec, as I had hoped.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLBeanOnMe Shirt is awesome - color does not fit me :(
I found the Deep Red to be very different than pictured and more like "Brick" the actual color of the Comfort Corduroy Lined Jacket.. which unfortunately is not the right red for me. It is very deep and rich and changes it's tone depending on light.. Indoors it has more brownish/orangey, dark amber tones, and changes to flatter but strong red outside.. I am still trying to figure out what to do. Sale price was great, inventory is gone, I like the feel of the shirt, but as I elaborated above, I have a hard time with the color. I can't comment too well about the fit because the color is so dominant and I can't see beyond it. I can maybe imagine that black or a more subdued color will do justice with my skin tone and in general look better on my 105 x 5. That's it regarding XS deep red comfort corduroy big shirt and me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by diane58 Very comfy and soft!
Got this shirt and put it on to try it for size..........well...I couldn't get myself to take it off of me! I found it to be pretty much true to size. I usually try to get things a tad bigger, and thought I'd get the large......but just before going to send out the order, I opted to change it to a medium. I'm glad I did! It fits perfect! I'm about 160 lb. and 5'4". I don't think I want to wear anther shirt underneath this. It seems to be quite warm the way it is. I LOVE the plaid lining!!! It is a perfect length too....falls to just below my hips. I like this as it is not too tight in through my butt area when I sit down.
LL Bean! You did it again! It's a great shirt for a great deal.......more so when it was on sale!!! Yes! I will tell others about this shirt too! It's very comfortable and not stiff like some courduroys are!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Kleinedame Really BIG SHIRT
Got the XL petite. Wow so big, measures 26" across. That's 52' around the bust line. Big shirt is, also, a BIG BOX. But it is cozy and the violet is nice. Will wear it as a jacket. Got a good deal on it on the "Daily Markdown" and the $10:00 coupon. I wonder how much smaller the L petite is round the bust line?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Longridehome Great shirt, practical for outdoor use
I really like this shirt for working outside in the yard or garden. I use it more as a jacket. The lining adds extra warmth and the fit is great, roomy enough to wear a shirt underneath but not too bulky. Would be nice to have a pocket though and more colors to choose from.

Rated 5 out of 5 by aUSconsumer Love it!
Received the corduroy big shirt in black and love the styling of it. Nice quality. Have worn it over blouses, knit tops, tees as an added layer leaving it open jacket style. The cord material is rich looking and I like the way the bottom was cut straight with the sides seams made with a tailored sewn finish. The contrast lining is a nice touch. Have not washed it yet so can not comment on that yet. Have received compliments and wished I had bought more colors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MireilleB I love this shirt
I bought the black in regular medium. I'm usually a large but from other reviews, I decided to size down. Good idea. It fits perfectly. I'm 5'1" and 145 lbs. I love that it is lined as it is so soft and warm and drapes beautifully, but a bit bulky. I also like the longer length which is why I took the regular vs the petite. It's roomy enough to wear a sweater underneath. It is well made and good quality. Most have been sold by now otherwise I'd buy another. The only negative is that it attracts lint, but then it's black so normal that everything shows. Highly recommend.

Corduroy is the best!! Linning is perfect for a shirt, would not want thick sheet type flannel in clothing====way too heavy!!!!
This black color is very rich, dark like coal not blue black and OOOHH so soft.... and it is on sale. What more could one ask for????

Rated 4 out of 5 by maryincanada So comfy!
I just received this shirt in black. It isn't really flannel inside but a pretty cotton lining. It's roomy enough to wear a turtleneck underneath but not so large that is boxy or shapeless. I would recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by PepperMillPatty Awesome Classic Shirt
I ordered this shirt in Black (the sale color). Shopping L.L. Bean for many years, I have seen this shirt on women before. Being on the small side, I never thought it would work on me. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! I ordered the shirt in Size Small. It is loose fitting but it is supposed to be for layering. The sleeve length is perfect. The chest width is roomy enough for a turtleneck. For a sale color, I am so happy with the black. The flannel lining is gorgeous. Many colors, so all my turtlenecks will blend well. This shirt is very well made. Will definitely order more. Thank you L.L. Bean for another great classic to add to my collection!
