100% Cotton

This relaxed-fitting, mid-thigh length shirt is inspired by Cornish artists’ studiowear. It’s woven from 100% cotton with a subtle slub that gives it a beautiful texture, enhanced by narrow yarn-dyed stripes. Ideal for layering, it buttons down the front, so you can wear it fastened or open to reveal a contrasting colour top underneath. Long sleeves with rolled cuffs and button loops and handy side seam pockets add the finishing details. A versatile addition to any wardrobe.

My new favourite shirt!

I love the feel and look of this shirt. A very nice fit too. I like that it’s a bit lighter material than some other of Seasalt’s shirts and can be worn alone or open over a vest top. Just wish they did more colours!

Great to wear as a casual jacket over your Carlew T-shirt.

Bought to go over your red skirt worn open. This is cut from a much better pattern. Please use this as the basis for more shirts.

nice material, generous fit

this shirt is really nice to wear - I could probably have done with one size smaller, but perhaps this way it's even more comfortable.
What I love about all Seasalt shirts is their light weight, which makes them great (bike or hiking) travel companions that look so much smarter than the (plastic) functional shirts.

Wrong Size

Lovely shirt, but they sent the wrong size! Either that, or I really did eat too much over the festive season.... One label said a size 16, the other 10!

My favourite shirt.

This is my second boat builder shirt. I also have the blue one. It is comfortable and looks great on. I have a large bust and this shirt is great for me. I have had comments on this shirt and I feel good!

Quality issues

This is a lovely comfortable shirt but unfortunately there was a sleeve seam unravelling when I opened the package. I will repair it as I really love the shirt. However, I was surprised at this blemish on the normally high standard of quality I expect from Seasalt.

Super shirt

So nice to find a relaxed cotton shirt which is so easy to wear. Two things: it comes up quite big (so I had to exchange for a smaller size) and it smells! I haven’t worn or washed it yet and fully expect the smell to go, so I’m not worried. But I do look forward to wearing it. More like this please.

Dear Jenny,
Thanks for your review of the Boatbuilder Shirt; regarding the smell, all of our garments are pre-washed in a washing detergent by the manufacturer prior to them being packed and despatched to us. The aroma you note is most likely just this detergent. Unfamiliar detergents can sometimes smell a little unusual and this can be exacerbated with the item being packed in a bag prior to it being received. If we can be of any further assistance to you, or you wish to discuss further please do not hesitate in contacting us by email, or phone our friendly customer services team on 01326 640075 or please contact us via Live Chat which can be found on our website https://www.seasaltcornwall.co.uk
Best wishes, Seasalt

Lovely shirt!

I’m really glad I went ahead and ordered this shirt! I’d been putting it off after reading other reviews regarding the fit/pockets.
I’m mostly a 12 in Seasalt, sometimes a 14 in tops as I like them loose fitting, so I ordered a 14 and it fits great! Really easy to wear and very comfortable and I have no problems with how the pockets hang.
If you go up a size you won’t be disappointed!

Love this shirt! True to size, the usual good Seasalt quality and looks lovely with jeans and smart trousers. Wear it with one of my favourite Seasalt cardigans.

Comfy Shirt

My Favourite shirt. I have three now.
Just one small thing. The pockets tend to fall back towards my posterior. I wondered if they could be anchored someway, this would make them flat on the hips too.

A favourite shirt,

This is my very favourite shirt, cool, versatile, ageless and a perfect length. As mentioned in an earlier review, I found the side pockets awkwardly placed - for me anyway - but this was easily solved with a sewing machine and a pair of scissors.
However, I have found that several areas of stitching have 'broken', not on seams but on cuffs and collar. Easily solved and does not affect my pleasure in wearing the shirt, but reflected in the 3/5 anchors.

Love this shirt

The on,y mistake I made when I ordered this shirt was to order a size 18.. I am a size 16 but always buy the Tunics and Shifts in Size 18 as they are easier to pull on and off.
The size 18 shirt is too big for me but the casual style means it doesn’t look enormous. I love wearing it with blue chinos and on cooler days wear a white TShirt underneath. Teamed with a scarf and chunky jewellery is dresses up well for different occasions.
I do agree with the reviewer who commented on the side pockets, they would have been better as patch pockets.
This shirt is a great addition to my spring/early summe wardrobe.

Classic

I have to disagree with some peoples comments I just love the pockets on this shirt makes it that bit extra, granted I am larger on top and have no hips which probable makes this top perfect for me. will team with white or blue jean leggings. CLassic! By the way seasalt the sizing of the bust measurements is perfect as well.

Seam pockets a mistake

Oh dear Seasalt, another shirt ruined with seam pockets - I didn’t notice this when I ordered it as I hate seam pockets.
Nice fabric, but those seam pockets! Why?
You have ruined the shape of good shirt by sticking unnecessary pockets in. A perfectly good French seam chopped about for pockets. They are far from flattering especially if worn over jeans with side pockets. A couple of patch pockets would have been great - they lie flat.
It’s also overlong even for me at 5ft 8 .

Lovely shirt

I agree with FiB slow. This is a lovely shirt, especially if you feel you need a bit of extra cover of bits you don’t like. It is long (and over 6feet tal) and can be dressed up or down. I wore mine with the chy sleeveless top and navy crops. I think the pockets do add a bit of u wa Ted width, but not enough to make a real difference and they don’t stick out.
I would definitely itely buy it inother colours. I love That Seasalt now caters for larger sizes. They have become my go to for online clothes and the fact that the sizes sell out demonstrate how successful and valued this extension is fisizes is. Pleas keep doing the,.

Gorgeous in Size 26

I absolutely love this shirt. I am (sadly) size 26 and so happy Seasalt now go up to my size. This shirt ticks all the boxes for me - beautiful lightweight cotton, beautifully finished, quite generous size - it is meant to be roomy - and an ideal length especially if you are self conscious about your tummy & thighs, long sleeves which obviously you can fold back, side pockets and a breast pocket. I wore this for the first time during the recent hot hot May bank holiday and the lightweight fabric was brilliantly cool. Will make a perfect over shirt on cooler days over a plain tank top.
My only complaint? I want it in the same light airy cotton fabric but more colours and I would buy one of each, in fact would be happy to fill my wardrobe with any number!

Perfect for larger ladies

I love the quality and colour of this shirt, but found the size to be huge, I like shirts to be loose and comfy, but this one was just too big. I wear a size 10 but could really have got away with a 6 in this style. It really didn't suit me which was a shame as it is a lovely casual shirt.

Lovely casual shirt

Lovely casual shirt, it’s a really good length-mid thigh, and looks great with jeans or trousers
The cut is flattering , it drapes nicely, with the fabric substantial enough to look good, but not too stiff or scratchy.
I got quite a few compliments on this shirt-really pleased with this purchase

mmmm

A really nice shirt however it doesn't seem to be cut very well, for me anyway, the pockets gape at the sides adding volume where you really don't want it. I will sew them up and remove them then I think it will be just fine. the shirt seem larger than need at the top and not large enough round your hips.

Love this shirt!

I truly love this shirt, wore it for the first time out on Saturday and it felt great. It makes such a change buying good designed clothes, well made in plus sizes, I'm a size 24. Got quite a few compliments to.
Bought the cloudy sky jumper to wear with it but on Saturday it was too warm
