Rated 3 out of 5 by caliwolf Not Slim
The shirt looks and feels great. Unfortunately, it's not at all slim. I compared it to some of the major brand slim fit shirts in my closet, and it's about 4" wider (2" front and 2" back) at both the chest and waist. So it's really just a standard fit. I'm keeping one to wear as a shirt-jacket, and returning the other. I love LLBean shoes, but I will not be buying any of their 90s-style oversized shirts again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BeanguyinWI new plaid disappointing
I have several of the solid color 1933 Chamois Cloth Shirts and I really like wearing them through the Wisconsin winter. I bought one of the new red plaid shirts and was very disappointed. The fabric of the red plaid is nothing like the fabric of the others. It has none of the characteristic nap on either side and so really doesn't resemble what I expect in LL Bean chamois.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ActiveOutdoors1 Kakhi, plaid
I believe I have the majority of the colors. Texas heat won't allow for these now, but in the winter, I use them mainly as a shirt jac. I am 5'9" tall. 185lbs. The Signature Medium has always fit well. I just received the kakhi plaid color today. It's a great fit, as expected. I have never had an issue with losing buttons and such. They wash well!

Material holds up well, but overall this will humble most guys because the buttons will all come off in less than two years so you better know how to sew and remember to check for buttons in the dryer. I have had over seven buttons come off three of these shirts. Sometimes I find them in the dryer, sometimes I cut off the spare that may or may not be on the inside bottom section. For the price they charge for this shirt, better quality control on the materials would be a plus.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Peaver Poor quality chamois shirts
I have many LL Bean chamois shirts that were made in America. They are noticeably heavier in weight, material much thicker, and better made than what is currently being made in Portugal, and being sold by LL Bean. So, I won't be buying another until the quality that I'm use to, returns. I can buy a chamois shirt anywhere that is comparable in quality. I can't find another with the same quality as the older shirts that were made in the USA.

Rated 5 out of 5 by justmatt Great winter shirt
I received the regular fit chamois shirt as a gift, and while the fabric seemed to be of similar quality, the fit was just not what I was looking for. I'm 6"6 210 with a somewhat athletic build, and the regular fit from L.L.Bean just does nothing for me. A Large Tall is a tent and a Medium's sleeves are too short while still not really fitting well. I returned the regular fit and waited for this one to come back in stock. It was worth the wait.
I see other users complaining that it is not slim enough, but I think the problem is a bit overstated. While not quite as slim through the body as some other slim shirts I own, I would say that the fit is more than adequate. I find the shirt to be nicely fitted through the sleeves, but with enough room to not feel constricted.
If you're looking for a super slim fit shirt, I don't think L.L.Bean is the the place to get it. It is substantially slimmer than the regular fit though, so if you want a nicely fitted shirt is made of thick, warm fabric for the winter, this is a nice choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bonjourbean Great shirt
I bought this shirt two years ago in the grey. I love it. I wear it more as a shirt jacket, even though it's about the thickness of a flannel. When I purchased the shirt I was 6' 220lbs and I bought the large. It was definitely fitted with just a t-shirt underneath. I'm now down 20lbs and it fits great as a "shirt jacket" over another woven, turtleneck, merino sweater, etc.
I wish I bought another color this season...now all sold out. Buy the grey if you can...great shade.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Notevenslim Not as advertised.
This shirt feels like it's great quality but I'm so disappointed that I can't recommend it. It's supposed to be slim fit and I did originally get a large that fit like a glove, but too close for comfort when considering shrinkage in the wash. I returned it and got an XL, counting down the days until it arrived. The thing is a tent. it actually balloons out from the chest down. calling this a slim fit shirt is a total lie, or some sort of delusion. I would go as far to say that if you were wearing this in any kind of active, job, it's bulky to the point of being dangerous. I could easily fit all three of my 15 month old kids inside the shirt while I'm wearing it buttoned up.
