Since their launch in 2012, Tradlands has devoted itself to making the very best button-up shirts for women. In large part, the business was born because co-owner Sadie was tired of walking into the men’s department and seeing things that she wanted to wear herself, but that didn’t quite work for a woman’s body. Tradlands endeavored to change that and their 8-button shirts that are still some of the very very best button-ups out there. Over the past four years, as the small team at Tradlands has started to grow, so has their ability to offer a wider range of women’s staples. They’ve taken the same attention to detail that they bring to making their button-up shirts and turned it loose on other pieces that could well get described as must-haves. Just this month, Tradlands launched cotton tees and sweatshirts to my very enthusiastic applause.
The Tradlands T-Shirts are made of super soft pre-shrunk cotton. They’re tailored enough to give them a little shape, without getting close to the overly nipped and tucked look that’s often synonymous with women’s t-shirts. My personal favorite features are the classic crew neck and the tailored hemline in a slightly rounded cut. I’m wearing the Ada Shell in these shots. Also available in Cavern, a dark gray; Brunswick, an olive green; and Indigo, a deep blue.
Always a sucker for good sweatshirt, I feel particularly qualified to tell you that the Tradlands Sweatshirt is fantastic. It’s also made of super high-quality pre-shrunk cotton and sewn in the US.
The crew neck, gusset, and ribbing give it all the signatures of a classic sweatshirt; the softness and comfort mean you’re not gonna want to take it off. I’m wearing the Althea Shell in these photos. Sweatshirts are also available in the same Brunswick green and Indigo blue as the tees, as well as Heather Gray.
If it’s a classic chambray that you’re thinking about adding to your fall closet, you’d be wise to look no further than the Waverly. Made of 100% cotton mid-weight cotton chambray, you can feel you’ve got something special on your hands from the moment you touch this shirt.
And if the shorter days were starting to notice makes you feels it’s the right time to up your sophistication a little bit, you might try the Rory. Its fit is a little trimmer than some of the other Tradlands’ button-ups and I love that it’s made of 100% organic cotton. It’s sleek and sophisticated (even over a growing belly).
If you see something here that strikes your fancy (or perhaps you’ve been tempted by a cool-weather flannel), Tradlands is offering Reading My Tea Leaves readers $25 off orders over $100 with the code hellofall. Good through October 15, 2016 at midnight PST.
PS. All Tradlands‘ customers enjoy free shipping and returns in the US. (International shipping is also available: $5 to Canada and $10 to everywhere else.)
