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

Based on our famous Sailor Shirt, inspired by original Breton jerseys, our Men's Sailor Shirt has an authentic nautical feel. It’s crafted from 100% organic cotton jersey with signature Seasalt yarn-dyed stripes and washed for a worn-in feel. This relaxed fit top is finished with a boat neck and long sleeves. In colours drawn from Cornwall's maritime heritage, it’s a year-round essential you’ll reach for again and again.

Our stripes are yarn dyed, which means the yarns are dyed before the fabric is woven, creating a crafted finish. Look out for new colours inspired by Cornwall every season.

We love 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.

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.

Great quality and style

I'm really pleased with the cut. I don't want to be dismissive of the other reviewer who says this item is cut for a girl, that's their opinion and it's valid for them, but in my experience it's not ringing true.

I'm 6'2 and 14 stone and have more room than I need in my XL top. If anything I think I could have got away with the large.

Anyway. I love the design, it's comfortable, and smart. I'm really pleased, thank you.

Lovely shirt but as not as thick as previous ones

Pleased to see these back on sale and in a different colour so bought a few more. When they arrived found that they were more like thin t-shirt material then the previous ones I had bought which were thick cotton. Same price as previous tops but much thinner which is a shame. Still fit well and look nice just not sure if they will last as long...

Dear Ian P
Thank you for your review and we'll be sure to pass your feedback on.
We'd like to reassure you that we always use the best quality fabric available. For the warmer summer season, we do use some lighter weight fabric. This has been reflected in the lower price point, as the Men’s Sailor Shirts are now available under the 2 for £40 offer.

Best wishes, Seasalt
