continuing my search for solid basics to support my wardrobe, i recently came across tradlands, a new san francisco-based company dedicated to constructing well-made, hand-crafted shirting for women. the brand, founded by partners sadie beaudet and jeremy roberts, combines the fabrics and techniques applied to traditional menswear shirts but with a fit designed by and constructed for a woman. the shirts are classic and timeless, made with high-quality fabrics like raw denim, fine cotton plaid, and slubbed chambray sourced here in the states, just like many of the shirts i’m always coveting in my boyfriend’s closet. reading a bit about the brand, i really enjoyed reading some of sadie’s philosophy around the brand:
“we are focused on women’s clothing. people often ask when and if we will make clothing for men. i see many companies making womenswear as a side note to their menswear line. the heart of our story is making great essentials for women.”
not only that, but the brand has a very strong connection to san francisco, where all of the garments are designed and constructed. each shirt in their first collection is named after a different sf locale. i’m already smitten with their first selection and can’t wait to see what other styles they roll out with this year.
