Rated 5 out of 5áby Arrow99 Not Your Ordinary T-Shirt
I can hardly believe this is a 100% cotton t-shirt because it feels so silky. The quality of the material is top of the line. It could easily be worn under a blazer or nice jacket, due to its satiny feel, as well as with jeans. The fabric is smooth, doesn't pill, and doesn't stretch out of shape. The shirt material is straight of grain, and unlike many t-shirts, doesn't twist after coming out of the dryer.
I purchased the 2X size, which fits perfectly. The length hits me at mid-hip. (I am 5' 3".# The shirt is not too tight and not too boxy. The sleeves are not binding or too tight and unlike some of the comments from others, I found the neckline to be just right. It is not so high it is choking, but just where it should be, I would describe it as a "jewel neckline".
I wish this shirt came in more pastel colors, such as celery, soft yellow, soft blue, lavender, etc. Unfortunately, the plus sizes are limited on their color choices. I love the two shirts I have #pink and white# and would gladly buy more if they were available in the pastel shades.
I don't usually write reviews, but this is the nicest t-shirt I have ever owned, so I just had to share my thoughts.

Rated 3 out of 5áby Longwaistedlady Great shirt, but too short
I have owned two of these in white, and love how they look as a layering piece, or on their own, EXCEPT for the length. I tend to be a little long-waisted, and they just will NOT stay tucked in! I would love about two more inches in length, then I think it would be perfect. The quality of the fabric is great, and the neckline is perfect - not too high.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Up2noGood Love these!
Even though I'm only 5'2", I prefer the misses sizing in medium of these shirts as I find the petite fit great but I'm not comfortable with the length as I tuck in most of my t's. These shirts are so soft and comfortable and look great after every wash. I wash them in cold and hang them to dry - they always look brand new each time! I really love these t's!!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Wass OUTSTANDING - HOWEVER
I would give the shirt 5 stars in a heartbeat - BUT.
I have been buying this pima shirt for years. Crew neck, V-neck, long sleeve, short sleeve. I have EVERY color. I wear a women's size and am frustrated that you seem to be cutting back on colors for these sizes. I have been nursing along my light yellow LLBean pima for so long now, that I noticed that it still has the label sewn in the back instead of printed. PLEASE - we Women's size ladies like color.
It is such a superb pima because it never pills or looks worn.

Rated 5 out of 5áby toolatesmart I'm in love.
Absolutely amazingly soft cotton. Feels like silk. A little big in the chest for size M; hemmed long enough to stay tucked in. Ts (and the turtlenecks) just don't get better than this. Lightweight for travel too.

Rated 3 out of 5áby NJbirddog beautiful fabric but fit a bit too narrow
I have so many of these tees from years past (LL Bean pima tees have been absolutely wonderful and don't wear out!), but I had to return the most recent one because of the fit. Although the tee did fit basically OK, I found the armholes to be uncomfortably small, and the sleeves and body a bit too narrow as well. Definitely not the "relaxed fit" of previous seasons. (It's not just LL Bean's clothes that are more body-fitting lately; the fitted styling is the look just about everywhere now.) Please bring back the old comfortable fit! ... And might I also say, I'd love to see more "earth colors" in the selections, like brown, tan, olive green, khaki, and not so many varieties of jewel tones.

Rated 1 out of 5áby 1Grams BEWARE
The color 'soft cobalt' is not close to the color 'cobalt'. I purchased this tee hoping that I could wear it under the Fly-away that I purchased earlier, but no can do because the colors do NOT match. Very disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5áby peoriaoutdoorlady Wish it was longer
Soft, well made...I just wish it was longer to stay tucked into my dress pants. Shrinks a little as well and so is now too short for tucking.

Rated 2 out of 5áby susie12 Just okay
I agree with the others that the neck opening is too high and leaves you with a "choking" feeling. Other than that it seems to be okay but I doubt I'll ever purchase this tee again.

I have the short sleeved pima cotton shirt in many colors. They wash great and the colors never fade. They are so much nicer than a standard cotton t-shirt. Great for work or casual wear. I also have many of the other pima cotton shirts (button down, three quarter sleeves, long sleeves) and have been very pleased with them all.
