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.

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.

Dear Batun,
Thank you for your review of the Sailor Shirt. Sorry the sizing wasn’t perfect, this doesn’t sound up to our usual high standard. One of our Customer Service Team will be in touch with you very shortly.
Best wishes, Seasalt.

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.

Lovely material but.......

Lovely material but sleeves were far too long and body too tight so had to send it back.

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..

A great top but watch out on the sizing

I bought two tops a few weeks ago and then bought another two in the sale. For some reason the fit was completely different on the second two and, if I'd only bought one, I'd have thought the wrong size label had been put in. The first two were semi fitted and fitted really well; the second two were very baggy. As I'd already washed them before trying them on it was too late to return them, but a real shame.

Too small

i ordered 2 tope, one size 10 and one 12 for my daughter and I. Strangely they were exactly the same size despite the labels and my daughter had to return hers and chose not to replace it sadly.

Spoilt by label poditio

Why are there 2 labels heavily stitched into the item, which I had to remove as they made garment uncomfortable . Unfortunately in doing so the stitching holes are very prominent , will not purchase again

Sailor shirt

I bought two of these shirts when they were on offer. Size 12 is usually fine for me but these were on the skimpy side. I thought the material was thin and it had a strange smell. Returned.
