100% Cotton (organic). Certified Organic according to Global Organic Textile Standards by Soil Association License Number: DK17684

Our iconic Sailor Shirts are inspired by the original Breton-stiped uniform of the French Navy, with a nod to the traditional workwear of our own Cornish fishermen. Made from organic cotton, the stripes are yarn-dyed and washed for a soft, worn-in feel.

We use organic cotton because it’s grown without harmful fertilisers and pesticides, protecting wildlife, soil quality and the workers who grow and process the cotton. GOTS is the gold standard of organic cotton, ensuring organic and social standards are met at every step, from cotton cultivation to production.

great top

Bought this for my partner, who LOVES it! It was in the sale, so it was an even better purchase.....just wish I'd bought several more as this one is getting constant wear. Thanks Seasalt!

One step forwards but ....

I bought a selection of your long sleeved sailor shirts last autumn and they were excellent and I was hoping you would have some new designs this year.
Your new designs have beautiful colour combinations and look perfect. However, the material is quite thin and although they would be suitable for the summer are not so well suited to the coming autumnal weather. The shirts which you stocked last autumn were much more substantial and I had hoped that this years would be similar.

Looks great

I bought this for my husband and he looks so good in it I’m having to resist the temptation to wear it myself. The fit is perfect, much better than the women’s version of the sailor shirt that he also owns, which is much looser round the neck. Nice colour and material too.

lovely fit

I'm female and usually only buy the petite sized tops because otherwise the waist is in the wrong place and looks frumpy. I bought two of these to get the offer, in a size small, and they are perfect for a flattering, oversized fit. Wonderful quality as well, I think they will last and last

Superb shirt

Bought it in ochre for a Father's Day gift for my husband. He put it straight on and kept it on, wouldn't take it off. He just loves it! The mustard/ochre colour is a gorgeous, rich, earthy shade, which really suits him, and the colour is suitable for the next season, autumn, as well as now in this cool summer we're having. It fits him well, even though I bought a size less than his usual in t-shirts. He's very well pleased with this, which is his second Breton shirt, but I suspect it won't be his last! Great job!

Nice but...

Nice shirt, well made with a fabric that has a soft feel on the skin. The cut is generous to roomy and it should be ideal for layering or on its own on a Summer's day.

I only have one niggle, and that is it is clearly cut for Weebles... it is disproportionately short for the size, which is disappointing. Seasalt's competitors, on both sides of the Atlantic (you know who I mean) all do standard sizing that is in proportion; this is quite boxy in it's cut, which looks odd and just doesn't quite work. I have marked it as a "small fit" which isn't quite true, but be wary if you are tall for your girth.

Men's sailor shirts

I bought these for my husband as he was impressed with the quality of a sailor top I had bought for myself last year. He was not disappointed, The colours are absolutely gorgeous and the quality is excellent.

Men's Breton Top

My husband wanted a smart stripe top and when I went on line Seasalt were doing two for £40 so I had another colour as well. He is absolutely delighted with both of them.

Great product

Lovely soft material, colour is ever so slightly more orange in real life. Great addition to the two already owned by my partner. The fit is great and happy to be able to find such long wearing products in an ethical shop. Great value for money given how long Seasalt clothing lasts and remains looking new even after several washes. Makes it better value than fast fashion retailers.
