Rated 5 out of 5 by horseladE Comfortable, flattering fit, and perfect weight
I hesitated to buy this because of the boat neck, but glad I did. The thicker fabric weight, sleeve length, fit, and body length are perfect and so comfortable. I paired it with a pima cotton shell underneath so there are no issues of straps showing. Just purchased two more as these are now my favorite go-to shirts. Now we just need LLBean to offer more colors! Black, brown, royal blue would be great. Hope to see white and cream restocked in my size too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CarmenSandiego subtle boatneck, heavy fabric, a wardrobe staple!
I was surprised how thick and heavy the material is... not at all tshirt-ish but closer to sweater material. This is ideal for summer air-condition and nippy fall weather.
I'm slim, but top heavy (32F) so generally try to minimize my bust. This thick fabric doesn't help... for those of you with that concern.
The boatneck is subtle, so most bra straps can stay happily hidden.
I paired this top with the Camden eyelet skirt and it's a gorgeous all-cotton summer outfit!

Rated 4 out of 5 by OldtimeCamper Love my Boatneck Tees from LL Bean
I am so quality of your Double L Rib Knit Boat Neck Tees. The colors are wonderful... I have Cardinal Red, Classic Emerald, Daylily, True Blue, 4 Whites, and I just ordered 2 of the new color -- Cream.
The Cream ones are a lot more stretchy than the other colors... may be a slightly different fabric, these are a tad clingy compared to my other colors. Not tight, just clingy.
I do have to agree with other posts, the neck could be about 3/4 inch smaller on each side... I have to keep watch on my bra straps when I wear these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by StPaulFan Great neck, but...
I just ordered 2 more of this shirt, having bought emerald and LOVING it. I'd buy more emerald just so I never run out, but it's OS. Does this tell LLB that we want true (not yellow/olive) greens?
Now for the "but"... the neck is almost too wide. I have to be aware of my straps, but I think going down a size would be a bit small. For any woman who doesn't know it yet, boatnecks are surprisingly flattering on older necks. I think they take the eye away from the wrinkled hollow and Adam's apple. But they must not be too wide.
Another request to LLB - more boatnecks in long-sleeved shirts! who decided they should mostly be 3/4? They're attractive in winter, too, so give us some LS options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by agatha2 THE BEST TEE I'VE EVER PURCHASED!!!
Incredible fabric, super style and they wash perfectly!!! I am 5'4'',
135 to 140 pounds, slim days vs. fat days, BUT I have wide shoulders, a large bust line, 42 C, and 30" hips. I don't like a tight
bust line so I ordered an x-large and it fit great. Because it was
described as "fitted" the hip didn't flare or seem too big....a problem I find with many of Bean's tops.....so if you have a large "upper" and smaller "lower", this top will also look good on you! I have to admit I also ordered a large because they were out of a color I wanted and it also worked. They don't shrink. I wash in cold, partly dry in dryer and then hang to finish drying. I don't know if this helps in the shrinkage department but no wrinkles!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Jensuni Very nice.
I would recommend this shirt, I bought them in 2 colors. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that they do shrink a little in the wash. I am waiting for LLBean to start making cotton shirts with a touch of spandex - they always seem to wash and wear better.
These are not thin shirts but a nice medium weight. The color and quality seem good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Caledonia Perfect summer top. Great value for the cost.
I love this top. It's slightly fitted so it looks very nice and not boxy. It's long enough -the perfect length and cut - to fit comfortably over slacks or jeans. It's a very flattering look. The True Blue and Cardinal Red are beautiful bright attractive colors. I plan on ordering more in different colors!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by DroughtTolerant Nice!
This is a nice quality, well-fitting top that will be a wardrobe staple. I can tell that it will be durable. Don't know yet how it will look after washing it...but from the looks of it, it's not a flimsy top, so it should be okay (hope so). I bought the lovely turquoise "true blue" in Small and it fits well (I'm 5'4" 130 pounds, small frame). Not many colors left in Small, though. ( Wanted the dark turquoise and light periwinkle but they were sold out in Small) Please provide this in more colors, like CORAL, PINK, & PURPLE. That would be great. Thanks!
