The famous Seasalt Sailor Shirt is our take on a classic Breton top – our original inspiration. Cut from 100% organic cotton in colours inspired by Cornwall, it’s a year-round essential you’ll reach for again and again. Tuck it into a denim skirt, layer it under knitwear and pair it with tailored shorts in summer.

Giant top

I love Breton shirts. Usually buying them from Boden, I wanted to try these Seasalt ones out, so got two with my recent order. The material is nice, but... They are ginormous! I'm pretty sure that the size 22 I got is at least 10 cm bigger in circumference than stated in the size table, and they also have a destinct A-shape; which is rather unhappy for my apple shape :) Sending from Denmark to the UK is rather expensive, so I will probably keep them for garden work etc in stead of returning them.

Dear Bettina,

Thanks for your review; sorry to hear the Sailor Shirt wasn’t a good fit on this occasion. Due to variations in styles and design each garment has its own measurements, and these are published against it on the website. Please call our friendly customer service team on 01326 640075 or pop onto Live Chat on our website at www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk, where we’d be happy to give further sizing information if required.

Best wishes, Seasalt

Ruined by nasty label stitch

This has potential to be a lovely Breton t shirt. I have bought them before in the two for 40 offer (I don't think they are worth full price) and was hoping the nasty label stitching had improved. Sadly just the same. Two lables sewn into neck with the most awful stitching, totally visible from outside. Not only is the stitching rough and cheap looking it's not even the right colour! Navy stitch on the ecru stripes looking like an awful cheap high street garment. Such a shame I only buy them to wear under something where the neck will not show. Please sort this out seasalt just put one label in side seam hat can be removed.

Dear Me
Thank you for your review of the Sailor Shirt. This certainly doesn’t sound up to our usual high standard.
We have a very robust feedback system in place, so I’ll feed your comments about the labels to the relevant team for their future consideration.
Best wishes, Seasalt

Spoilt by nasty stitching

This has potential to be a great stripe t shirt. Nice cotton, good fit, great colours, good length. For me it is totally ruined by nasty stitching of not one but two inside labels on the back neck. There is no need for two labels! And the label stitching is so awful it shows and makes the back look cheap and nasty. Worst thing re awful stitching is the thread is the wrong colour! My blue and ecru stripe has dark stitches showing through in the light stripe. And rough stitching at that. I have bought this t shirt previously and hoped you would have resolved this by now, but still the same. I will keep and wear for work ( artist so it will get ink on and nobody will see the back) I love wearing stripes but this simply spoils the whole garment, looks like a cheap high street shop finish. For me the neck, hems and stitching make the garment. Please change this seasalt, it's a dreadful letdown for a classic Breton

Good quality

Good quality but far too large for a size 16. Notice you received returned goods on 7/12/18 so I expect a refund soon. Other goods I have ordered from you have been true to size so somewhat disappointing.

Way too short

I love Seasalt sailor tops but this one is a dissapointment. It has a lovely colour but shorter than usuall. Unfortunately i washed it before i tried ( i assumed it’s the same cut as the rest) so can’t return but can’t wear it.

sze changes

I bought two of these t shirts last year and loved them - perfect fit and very gopd looking and comfortable.. Ordered the same size this year, and they are too big. I measured them against the ones I already have and they are bigger on all seams. I had to return them, and am very disappointed.

Wrong shape

I purchased two of these lovely tops a while back ready for summer, unfortunately I didn’t try them on at the time, when I did wad really disappointed as they were far too big on the shoulder, maybe I’m the wrong shape. I have worn both and washed them, but not happy with the look so won’t be wearing them again. There were lovely colours to chose from and had hoped to select more at a later date but I wont be doing so. I have other makes of Breton tea shirts which fit much better.
I do love Seasalt products but disappointed with these.

Sizing

Lovely material and quality-however at 5 feet tall they are much too long and had to return. Wishing there was a shorter length in these tops for us petite ladies!

Sailor Shirt

Bought the Sailor Shirt in Ecru Seagreen - a beautiful colour, but too short in the body for my liking. At 5ft 10in I will go back to buying breton tops from FatFace, which are much longer and I don't have to keep tugging them down..
