100% organic cotton. Certified organic according to Global Organic Textiles Standard by Soil Association Certification no DK17684.

Our take on the classic Breton top. Seasalt's bestselling Sailor Shirt is effortlessly stylish, easy to wear and goes with just about anything. Made from 100% organic cotton, this striped top is super soft and breathable. We wear ours year round – they’re great for layering under tunics or knits when it’s cooler. Look out for new colours inspired by Cornwall every season.

Not Seasalts usual standard

My first order in size 12 (my usual size) was too big. I re-ordered in size 10 but even in the smaller size the shoulder width was too wide and the seams hung over my shoulders. The sleeves were far too long and the quality of the fabric was poor. Not Seasalt's usual standard.

Dear Disappointed,
Thanks for your review; sorry to hear our 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, where we’d be happy to give further sizing information if required.
Best wishes, Seasalt

Much thinner than they used to be?

I have bought many of these sailor shirts over the years and was so pleased to be given one in the lead colourway for Christmas. However, the fabric is much thinner than any of my other sailor shirts - it's just a regular thin t-shirt material rather than the thicker, sturdier fabric of my other tops. I see these tops are now made in Sri Lanka rather than Turkey and wonder if the change in production means a different thinner fabric is now used. This thinner fabric does not wash so well and needs ironing, unlike the sailor shirts of old. Disappointing, and I wonder if any other people have commented on the change of fabric used.

Dear GH,
Thanks for your review; our Sailor Shirt has always been 185gsm single jersey. We do allow a small tolerance on this weight (as it’s not very ethical to throw large amounts of cotton away for being slightly over or under weight).
In our experience, we have noted that dye colours can influence the weight and hand feel of the fabric as well as washing and surface texture.
Older garments may feel thicker over time as the fibres fluff up making it feel fuller, dark colours are often heavier ( within our tolerance).
We do carry out strict quality control but sometimes you can find that one batch may be slightly under weight, while another is slightly over and then if you compared the two, you would notice a slightly different feel. We wouldn’t fail the goods for this, but would strive to improve in the next delivery.
If you’d like to discuss further please call our friendly customer service team on 01326 640075 or pop onto Live Chat on our website at
Best wishes, Seasalt.

I bought 2 of these tops. The labels in the neck are awful with white stitching showing on the outside of the top. I tried to carefully take the labels off 1 top but created a small hole. Now unwearable. Have already contacted the company suggesting they use the same colour of thread for the labels to match the colour of the top. By the response I had, I don't think they will take notice. I wasn't asked to return the tops for credit. Therefore very unhappy, will never purchase from Sea Salt again although there are some very nice looking garments.

Too big

Same lovely fabric and a great colour but sadly much bigger than all the previous versions, when measured it was a good 3inches bigger overall, so sadly I had to return it

Not as expected

Very disappointed. Not as picture, material thin, bad cut, very baggy on hips, not at all flattering. Both items returned.

Neckline too low

This is presumably designed for the winter but the neckline is far too low at the back. I tried using a scarf but my neck was still uncovered and cold. Had to sent the shirt back.

Sailor shirt

Too long in body and sleeve for me. Size 12 and 5'4".

Please, please, make these sailor shirts longer - mid thigh length. They would be absolutely fabulous if they were longer 78cm length. This would make them more flattering! I would then buy them all. I realise that they would be more expensive but worth it.

1st was faulty

The 1st was faulty, had to return, Cust. Service did not bother to give a full refund. Tracking numbers are useless, they don't work when I click on them or copypaste them. 2nd top is OK but I wish it was available at the local department store because they care about customer service.

The long and short of it.

Unfortunately one sleeve of this top was about two inches longer than the other.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry that the Sailor shirt you received had different length sleeves. This is definitely not up to our usual standards. I can see we have received your returned top and refunded you for this in full. I do apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused and can assure you this will be looked into further. Best wishes from all at Seasalt.
