Men's L.L.Bean Linen Shirt, Slightly Fitted Long-Sleeve Stripe is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sizing The shirt is good and fits most areas comfortably. For gentlemen with bigger arms, you may want to look elsewhere for your linen shirts. I prefer the linen shirts from Brooks Brothers or Orvis and I haven't had this problem with their shirts. I find Bean's to be tight in the the arms, so much so that every time I bend my arms I am expecting the shirt to tear in the elbows. Yes, I have larger than normal forearms and the description says slightly fitted, but I expected it to be "fitted" in the body, not the arms. If the arms were a little looser, this would be a great shirt. I love the quality and the toughness of the shirt and plan to wear it whilst doing work around the house.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Linen shirt Nice shirt but 1) the linen is not the best quality and wrinkles badly without hanging to dry wet and shaping by hand (or ironing; I do not iron things), plus it's a wee bit heavy for linen, and 2) it runs slightly large - if you bought a seersucker same pattern same shape same size and it fit prefectly, this one will run large even after a hot wash and dry. So, overall it is a nice shirt and will keep you cool on hot days, but I won't buy a second one because there are better linens around. Cheers. Enjoy your day :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic. I love this shirt. I've now bought it in three colors and will buy it in another should the come out with more. It's a classic. The linen can be ironed out nice and crisp or can have that slightly wrinkled 'I'm on vacation and I don't care' look, and still look good. The stripes are lovely and the colors (I now have the blue and have previously bought the tan stripes and the red) go with everything. I bought this shirt in XL, the L fit, but I loved how the oversized shirt looked, roomy and cool. It's the prefect summer shirt. #verynewengland

Rated 3 out of 5 by from weird sizing In terms of the quality of linen and construction, this is a great shirt. In terms of sizing, it's just weird. I', 6'2" 245lbs and mostly wear either XL slim fit shirts or occasionally L in a traditional cut. Since these aren't offered in slim fit I ordered the large. I was swimming in it - I mean it fit me like a tent for a family of four. So I ordered a medium and it's super tight even after it stretches out from wearing it. Even though the label has them a size apart, they are really at least two sizes in difference.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This linen shirt a winner for me I ordered a size larger than I would have in the distant past because my experience of sizing from LLB has been sporadic for some items. And because recent shirt/coat styles seem to favor tight (for me uncomfortable) set-in sleeve holes. (Also, I'm sure it is really hard for any company that has suppliers worldwide to maintain tight controls on size and quality.) So I like my summer casual shirts especially to be a little loose and baggy. Also there was a little shrinkage in the first washing that resulted in the XL to be just right for me. I recommend the shirt. Competitive price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice linen shirt The LL Bean linen shirts are a bit heavier than some others, but still plenty cool in hot weather. This one seems to be of the same quality as others I have bought from them, meaning it should launder and wear well. Yes they wrinkle, it is linen, but they can be ironed or smoothed out when wet and air dried and look very nice. Fit seems to be good too. I am not convinced I like the "slightly fitted" but it doesn't seem overly restrictive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Totally excellent! I always wear linen...(year-round in southern California), and so I was delighted to find your linen shirts which I bought for my husband. I do iron his shirts, but it is really not necessary if you like a more casual statement. The fit is perfect and we both love the look...it just says summer. I felt the price was very reasonable and bought a white one and a blue one originally, and then added the blue pinstripe and deep olive which were then on sale...Bingo! Thank you L.L.Bean for an excellent product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice summer shirt This is a comfortable shirt, great for wearing long sleeves when out in the sun. My husband needs to protect against skin cancer and this is a great solution. We've seen complaints about wrinkles. Well, it is a linen shirt, so that comes with the territory. It can be ironed if you would rather it looks like it does when it comes out of the shipping bag.
