Nice top but...

I ordered this and a Breton Stripe green together. On inspecting the stitching,, I noticed it was very messy at the back where the labels are sewn on.

I contacted customer services and received this reply:

“Thank you for getting in touch with us regarding your Sailor Shirts, I'm sorry to hear that you are disappointed with the back stitching where the labels are sewn in and apologise.

I have had a look at the shirts that I own and have also liaised with several other colleagues and can confirm that all our shirts are the same and the stitching is supposed to look like this.

The blue stitching on the shirt is a little messy however all our shirts do have the stitching like this so if you were wanting to reorder please be aware.“

I wish I could include pictures but there is no where I can see to do this. I can assure you, as someone who sews clothes, this is not how they are supposed to be. They are very shoddily sewn. These t-shirts are not cheap and I expect a higher standard from Seasalt.

I’ve left two stars because of this response. If this problem was addressed properly with your supplier, I would leave a higher rating as I really like the tops.

Lovely design - shame about the fit!

I’m usually a 10 but often sleeves can be a bit snug (though important to note that my upper arms are neither skinny nor overly chubby!) - I ordered a 12 for this reason and also wanted a slightly more relaxed fit generally. Unfortunately while the fit was lovely in the main, the sleeves were just really tight by comparison and it just looked daft and made me feel self conscious. So sadly I’m going to return it.

Hi Charlie
Thank you for reviewing the Sailor T-shirt. We're sorry to hear that it wasn't perfect for you this time and of course we'll arrange a 'no quibble' refund for you if you'd like to pop it back to us using your free post label.
We've got some beautiful Tops in our new collection. The Reflection T-shirt might just be perfect so do take a look...
Best wishes

I have several of these T-shirts and love them, so I was looking forward to receiving another one. However I was disappointed to find the sizings and quality have changed. My usual size 10 doesn't fit, and the material is thinner. Shoulders are narrower and the neckline is a different shape and doesn't sit right.

Not for me

I much preferred last year's style of this T-shirt. I found this one too long in the body and the sleeves are also much longer than last year's model.
Oh dear, didn't like this shade of green either.
Can't please all the people all of the time.

Changed the cut

Same good quality but different cut. Too long. Why fix something that isn’t broken. Very sad

Dear Rht,
Thanks for your review. What a shame to hear that the length of our Sailor T-shirt wasn’t perfect for you. We do try to keep our designs fresh and exciting so little changes are made to reflex this. I’ll pass your feedback to our design time for their future consideration.
Our friendly customer service team are on hand either by email on, by phone on 01326 640075 or by Live Chat via our website.
Best wishes, Seasalt

Too short

After reading the reviews for these tops, I had high expectations. However, when I tried them on, I found them to be too short for me. I am 5'8, and the top sat on the top of my hips. This may be ok for some, but I like my tops a little longer. Unfortunately i had to return them.

Sailor T-Shirt

Nice material and lovely colours, but I was disappointed with the poor stitching on the back neck labels. They were badly attached with crooked stitching, so the top looked scruffy from the back. I did not think the workmanship matched the price! So returned.

Sailor tee

l was really pleased with this purchase until I washed it and it shrunk slightly this was enough to make it a bit snug .
This also happened on the yellow sailor tee so this is the reason for 2 stars .
I would recommend the next size up got this reason

Rosa Ecru colourway came up very small

I bought the Rosa Ecru sailor top together with the Breton River Ecru colourway and two long sleeved sailor tops in Poseidon and Navy, all in size 12. Excellent quality as we've come to expect from Seasalt but the Rosa colour came up incredibly small. This was disappointing as I'd only tried one of each style on and this wasn't one of them!! I would have thought it not unreasonable to expect them to be uniform sizes. I had to return it and was unable to buy a size 14 which was a real shame as it was such a lovely colour. Seasalt can you please investigate as to why this particular colour is so much smaller than the other colourways?

Dear Greenfingers
Thanks for email and we're really pleased that you love the style and quality of our beautiful Sailor Tops and Tees. The sizing can vary slightly due to what we call a 'tolerance level', which can be up to 2cms either way. This is across all our clothing and the measurements listed are a guideline only to help select the best size for you. We will however make sure that your comments are passed on to our design and buying teams for their consideration and thank you for highlighting this for us.
Best wishes, Seasalt

Oh dear!

I really made a mistake with this top. Ecru Finch. The yellow wasn't really yellow at all, more a luminous lime green which contrasted really badly with the off-white stripe. I took it back but kept the Hedgerow one. It is rather large on me as Seasalt don't do Size 6's (please do Size 6's!!) but I don't mind a loose fit on a top now and again.
