Rated 2 out of 5 by nelca Not Much of a Seersucker
I bought two of these on sale, so the price was right (19.99). But I am disappointed with the material. It's not what I expected a seersucker shirt to be. The "crinkles" are very moderate...I doubt this will give much of a "cooling" advantage; to do so, the crinkles have to be substantial to keep more of the material off your skin and let the air circulate. Have bought seersucker shirts before at other merchants, as well as LL Bean. They are great in hot weather, but I will probably be returning these. On the other hand, if you are more concerned with appearance than the cooling factor, these shirts look great, nice colors, and are noticeably less casual in appearance than proper seersucker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mojoon I've been wearing these shirts for years
I've been wearing these shirts for years and I love them. They breath well and keep me very comfortable in hot weather. I like the button downed collars which gives a little bit of a dressier look in a comfortably casual shirt. I'll continue to buy more in the future as I need them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by LLBeanShopperDeluxe Wrinkled Mess
So disappointed. Had purchased for my husband based on another LLB seersucker shirt I bought for him last year - same style, short sleeve, one pocket, button down, seersucker. That one comes out of the dryer without a wrinkle on it. Not so with this one. This shirt doesn't just need a quick touch up with iron, it requires a thorough ironing. Material was wrinkled, hem was curled up, and button placket was all creased. I've never had a seersucker shirt come out of the dryer damp, hang to dry, and still be full of wrinkles. Launders like a linen shirt, not the usual easy care of seersucker.
Too bad, since it fits and is comfortable but is too high maintenance for casual summer shirt, and would not pack well or be good for traveling.
Bring back the easy care seersucker shirt!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Goldenoldieplus Caution - label
This shirt comes with the dreaded neck label. The label is not shown in the website picture. It reads "TRADTIONAL FIT" - whatever that means.
I avoid shirts with these labels because they itch and irritate my neck.
The shirt itself is lightweight, cool, and comfortable. I'd probably give it 5 stars without the label.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Kathlyn47 "Naturally wrinkle resistant" means IRON!!!
I am so disappointed in this seersucker shirt. The only reason I bought this for my husband is because the description states "naturally wrinkle resistant". I just removed it from the dryer and there is no way my husband would wear this shirt because the wrinkles are so many and the tab is all scrunched up. There's no way I would let him wear this shirt. So I'm guessing I will be dragging out the iron and ironing board for this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by elizabethregina1 Cool as a Cucumber for Florida
I purchased three of these shirts for my husband to wear to work and he loves them. It is no easy feat to find clothes for a graphic's designer! He is picky and knows good design, correct color balance and all the rest. He loves, loves, loves llbean seersucker shirts, not only for the design quality but also for the fabric quality and the great fit. He tells me that size XLTall works great for his 225 pound frame and 6'5" height! I agree. He wears these shirts to church, out to dinner, and to work, as they are appropriate for a multitude of occasions, we think. Jackets are not as frequently worn in Florida as they are up North, so this shirt fills the bill nicely much of the time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OBXMan THE most comfortable shirt
I have several seersucker shirts from llbean, and I find these to be my most comfortable summer shirts, ever.
Very lightweight & cool.
I prefer the button downs, as they look great tucked into pants if you want a little dressier look.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Elfentine Not LL Bean's Usual Sizing
This shirt and the same one in blue are being returned. I am an unhappy camper to say the least. I do expect all llbean shirts to all fit my husband the same.
These seersucker shirts are definitely smaller than many other llbean shirts I have purchased. This is probably my last purchase. I don't appreciate the trouble and $$ required to return something.
