Women's Signature French Sailor Knit Tee, V-Neck is rated out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by RocklinMom from Wonderful!!! I wear a Misses size 14-16 and normally find that the Signature line, in which L.L. Bean offers a Large size, runs small for me. I was so happy to see that this tee was described as having a roomy fit and I purchased it. Love the fit, the fabric and peachy striped color. I have been a loyal fan of the French sailor shirts that LLB makes available and hope they never go away. The tee I'm reviewing here is different from the F.S. shirts but I'd buy a "gazillion" of them if they were styled like this shirt!!! L.L. Bean, will you please consider offering the standard French Sailor shirt in a slightly longer, v neck version??

Rated 1 out of 5 by LoneWriter from Not the French Sailor fabric I know and love Please bring back the French Sailor shirt fabric sold between 2012-1015. I miss that awesome turtleneck, the half zip mock, and the boatneck top with 3/4 sleeves. The fabric was super soft and weighty (gently skimmed over lumps and bumps), and the stripes were more refined (smaller scale). I actively dislike this new baggy style.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Banjogirl from Perfect! I just received this new version of the French sailor’s shirt, and it’s exactly right! I have the boat-neck French sailor’s shirt, which even in petite is a little long and the boat neck is wide, making bra straps visible. I wear it because it’s comfortable but it doesn’t look great. I ordered the newly-styled V neck in tawny peach stripe. I find the LLBean Signature series run a little larger, so I ordered an XXS. It came in today’s mail and it fits perfectly and more important, looks really good. The slightly shorter front and longer back works well for those of us who are...non-tall. I immediately ordered the navy stripe before my size sold out! These are going to be my go-to shirts for spring and early summer, maybe even into fall! I haven’t washed it yet, but all of my LLBean tees wash like a dream, so I have no hesitation in recommending this shirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NYwalkingwoman from Nice quality - love the stripes - runs large This is a nice top, very well made and quality fabric. I normally wear a size Small in LL Bean shirts and tops, but after reading reviews I ordered an XS and also an XXS. The XS was still a little roomy but I figured after washing and any slight shrinkage, it would be fine. The XXS fit perfectly but I didn't want to risk any shrinking at all after washing, so I returned the XXS. The boxy cut and slightly dropped shoulders is cute and looks good untucked on my slender frame.

Rated 1 out of 5 by MANaturelover from Awful I am sorry to call it awful but I could not think of another thing to call it. First thing out of the bag; it was a pale color. The blue stripes were interwoven with the white. The fabric felt coarse and insubstantial. When I tried it on it was gigantic - not large - huge. I have 2 other French Sailor shirts in XS. I bought this in XXS and, as I said, it is huge- larger even than the others in XS. I am not that small. In other brands I wear a 4 and a S. LLBean runs larger than other brands I am used to but I was very surprised at this shirt.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 2743 from Too Long!! Actually loved the shirt...style, color, and fabric were great. It really isn't Bean's French Sailor shirt in any way except possibly the stripes. I just wish it wasn't so long. The overall fit runs just a bit large which isn't too much of a problem, but unless you are quite tall the shirt hits quite a way below the low hip and proves unflattering to larger frames. So it must go back. Please make a shirt like this that isn't quite as long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CUBeanShopper from Boxy fit I found this to be too boxy on me. I have quite a few boatneck sailor tees, and I love the fit of them. Wanted to like this because of the vneck, but I sent it back.
