Rated 3 out of 5 by LindaLJ Shrunk!
I've always loved LLBean 3/4 sleeve T-shirts and ordered 2. So disappointed, they shrunk the first time I washed them. They are a bit shorter to start with from previous years. I washed in cold water just as instructed. LLBean needs to preshrink these shirts!

Rated 2 out of 5 by yakcat V neck 3/4 sleeve t-shirt
I love these t-shirts and have bought many over the years. The low rating is due to your current color selections which are mostly bland heathers. Please bring back solid colors with some vibrance. Last year I bought a lovely green but gave it to a friend who admired it. Now I want to see more colors including the greens you had last year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by sdwaldon Bean's Tee, Three-Quarter Sleeve V-Neck
I have bought so many of these shirts over the years I forget how many. When and if they got too short for me I passed them to my sister. I may say that the color stayed true and didn't fade. Only one thing I would love, love in these is more length. I would say these have been my all time favorite t-shirts from LLBean second only to unshrinkable t-shirts, which I also have too many to say. Thanks LLBean for a great product. Just make them longer and bring in more summer colors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by pimatees inconsistent sizing
I am very disappointed that this V-Neck that I ordered in Mineral Red has to be returned. I own at least six of these V-Necks in Size Large, and this new one is 2.5 inches longer and 2" narrower (around) than the others. The color is beautiful and the quality seems fine, but the sizing is way off. It's very frustrating to run into this inconsistency.

Rated 4 out of 5 by DogSocialWorker I own many LL Bean shirts
I like the color because it has grey tones mixed with blue which make it ultra casual. Regarding fit, the LL Bean shirts are too snug in medium and too large in large, I have many of each size; it's always a quandary which to order. I should have bought this one in large because the arms are snug even though my arms are quite slender. The issue is COMFORT, NOT FIT because I am not overweight at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by toastedmarshmallow REVIEWERS "WANTING SHRINKAGE?"
I do not understand reviewers who say they "want" or "expect" shrinkage and I hope Beans is not making T shirts longer for this minority who are too casual about washing/drying their clothes or maybe don't know how to prevent shrinkage when washing cotton T-shirts. LAUNDRY SUGGESTION TO KEEP THE T-SHIRT THE SIZE/SHAPE YOU LOVE. When I buy a NEW T-shirt and it fits perfectly, here's what I do to be sure it will keep that size and shape after washing/drying. 1). While still new, on a flat surface, MEASURE THE SHIRT (I generally measure width across bust, at bottom hem and length from back of neck to hem) and write down these measurements for future reference. 2). I dry all of my clothes on "low heat" AND TAKE THE T SHIRTS OUT OF THE DRYER WHILE STILL QUITE DAMP. 3). Refer to the measurements you have previously written down, and "block" the T shirt to this size on a flat surface (easy to do because still quite damp). Avoid wrinkling in long and short sleeves by folding the sleeves over the top of the shirt. (And for those of you who feel compelled to iron your T-shirts, drying in this way, smoothing out the fabric as you go, means that when dry, your T-shirt is smooth and set to go; no ironing needed!) Yes, this means devoting more time to your laundry, but to me it is worth it to ensure that my T-shirts keep the same size and shape. My clothes are an investment, and I like looking good (don't we all?). When you are "expecting" or "wanting" shrinkage you can never be sure of the size/shape of the shirt you will end up with. Take the extra time with a shirt that fits, makes you feel great when you wear it and you will never be disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by suzybart Not long enough!
The fabric is fine, good quality but poor fit! The top fits like a box. No shape, wide at the bottom,hits at high hip and I am 5'7" I really wanted to like this, but the fit just won't do.I am sending it back.

Rated 1 out of 5 by toastedmarshmallow SHIRT IS TOO LONG!!
This T shirt, size M is 25" long, a full 1" longer than you made Beans Tees in this size in the past (same issue with another Beans Tee I ordered this year). This length is too long for me, looks more like a tunic. Very unattractive and will be returned. AND WHY ARE YOU NOT OFFERING BEANS TEES IN THE SHORT SLEEVED V-NECK THIS YEAR? That has always been my favorite, most comfortable summer T shirt. It fits well (in the 24" length you made Beans Tees in for so many years), I prefer the more substantial fabric of the Beans Tees to the thin pima cotton and find that a V-neck is a lot cooler in hot weather than a crew neck. Very, very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Parmathule Ideal for travel
I was surprised to see negative reviews about this shirt--it has become my favorite. The fabric is lightweight but not thin, soft and stretchy, and I love the rich "deep mallard" color, which is what I would call a dark teal (this issue of color is tricky when buying online--I bought another of these shirts in "shade teal heather" and it turned out to be what I would call an only slightly bluish shade of green, maybe a sea green). I am 5'2" and 115 lbs. I bought the extra small regular and the fit is perfect. Actually, it's even more perfect (!) after going through the washer and dryer. I like fitted clothing, and now the shirt is form fitting and very flattering without being tight. The length is ideal for me, as well. I don't care for the current fashion of super long shirts. This one falls at mid-hip. The sleeve length is perfect too--dressier than a t-shirt, but cooler than long sleeves. And these sleeves can always be pushed up above the elbow if need be, since they're not that long. It's ideal for travel. I bought two a year ago, and am buying another two today!

Rated 2 out of 5 by MaineIsland Shrinkage is an issue.
Shrinking after laundering is an issue. Even hanging to dry (too many wrinkles then) did not work. Plus they are shorter so very unflattering. I like the v neck and 3/4 sleeves, but something is wrong with material.
