I love hearing about new womenswear brands that are hitting the nail on the head. Tradlands is doing just that with a collection of womens shirting. Founders Sadie Beaudet and her fiance Jeremy Roberts founded Tradlands in 2012 so they could create a line of shirting for the woman who finds herself veering towards menswear pieces and wishing that it was made with her size in mind. The woman who wants a classic shirt that will take her from morning to night, and all year round, while maintaining its shape. No form-fitting stretch or “hourglass” tailoring in sight here. A relief to all women who seek a shirt that is flattering but allows for movement and getting stuff done.
The collection features button-ups and shirt jacket constructed of hardwearing fabrics like raw denim, fine cotton, and slubbed chambray. Details include durable brass snaps and side gussets. Each piece is handmade in San Francisco in limited runs of fabrics and trims sourced in the United States. Their rate of small production runs allows them to really zone in on what their customer is looking for, and to make it perfectly for her. In the pipeline, Sadie and Jeremy have a second run of shirts planned featuring lightweight denim and madras prints, along with a quilted vest, barn jacket, and henley.
