Men's Crew-Neck Long-Sleeve Cotton Knit Sleepshirt
My husband likes this nightshirt. It keeps him warm. BUT it SHRINKS like crazy. Three (3) washings and it has shrunk at least six (6) inches in length and at least three (3) inches in sleeve length. My daughter says he is wearing a miniskirt. (And it started at the top of his knees.) Almost all t-shirts in the US these days are made from pre-shrunk material. This nightshirt should be too?

A great shirt
I love these sleeep shirts, the length is perfect. (Just below the knee on me.)
Great for wearing to bed but also great for wearing during the day too. I'll often wear them during the day
with shorts or jeans.
My only complaint is I wish they came in more colors.
A local store location in Boston would be nice too.

What is XLarge???
My twenty year old Vermont Country Store nightshirts were becoming a little raggedy and my wife insisted that I upgrade. Ordered a blue and gray and retired mine to the rag bin. I am 5'10" and weigh 190 lbs....not really extra large, but after reading the critiques I ordered XL. My old ones are a good six inches longer than the new ones and my butt is exposed every time I adjust my position in bed and the draft is uncomfortable when I get up during the night or in the morning. The quality seems OK, the arms are ample, but why in the world would you make nightshirts shorter????? These will be the last ones I buy. Very disappointing.

My husband has preferred night shirts for the past decade. I was just delighted to find them here several years ago. The fabric quality and workmanship are top-notch plus they launder like a dream and wear well year after year. This year Santa brought my husband a couple long sleeve night shirts and he was overjoyed!

Sleepshirt is a very good buy
The sleepshirt was exactly what I had been looking for. It was just as the description on the website.I have been using it for about 3 weeks. We have had some cold nights lately and I did not feel cold at all. I have since ordered a second one. I am very pleased with the product and the prompt service I received from the Vermont Country Store.

What you see is what you get
The product is perfectly fine in and of itself; as shown in the illustration, it's simply an extended tee-shirt with long arms, and it seems reasonably well-made. As a 1XX who wished to have plenty of room in it, I ordered the 2XX size. The sleep shirt is barely 1XX, however. I can certainly wear it, but it's snug and therefore not as comfortable as I had hoped. I can recommend it with that caveat.

BRING BACK THE HEAVIER COTTON SLEEP SHIRT
I've bought sleep shirts here for many years, both cotton and flannel shirts. The sleep shirts I most liked were crew neck sleep shirts made with a heavier cotton than Vermont is now offering. The current cotton sleep shirts are fine for spring, summer and fall but too light for winter-at least for me. So I wish Vermont would again include heavier cotton sleep shirts in their selection. Finally, offering their long sleeve cotton sleep shirts with ribbed wrists would be a great improvement.

Very hard to find item
I seem to be one of the few men who prefer sleeping in nightshirts. I especially like the long sleeve cotton knits, but have been unable to find them for several years now. When I wore out my last one, I searched for that product brand and "nightshirts" and your store was the only hit I got! I immediately ordered a gray one and liked it so well I called and was able to add 2 more to the order!
I love the feel and weight of the shirts and am quite pleased with them. My only slight complaint is the use-and-care tag, which I like to use when hanging on a hook to prevent stretching the fabric, is not sewed in well enough to serve this purpose.
