Reinventing Tomboy With Tradlands Menswear Inspired Staples For Women

by | Dec 29, 2018 | Labels To Love, Sustainable Fashion

Have you ever wandered through the mens section and thought, I wish they made that in my size?  TRADLANDS was founded on that idea, to create menswear-inspired staples for women with an emphasis on fit, detail, and quality. In 2012, Sadie and Jeremy Roberts founded the label, a brand where  women could find well-made, timeless pieces without all the fancy, extra embelleshments frequently found on women’s clothing. “Trad” derives from traditional mid-century American menswear, and “Lands” from San Fransisco where Golden Gate park was known as Outside Lands, the place where the idea of Tradlands came to life.

Tradlands wanted to tackle the problem with the oversized boxy “boyfriend” fit or the infamous “boob gap” found in button-downs. So they created clothing with a gently tailored fit for a women’s body, and added details like side gussets and French seams. There is an eighth button to solve the “boob-gap” problem, and the silhouettes aren’t snug to the body hugging the hips, but rather relaxed for a comfortable wear.

This cozy flannel really brings me back to my roots of growing up on the farm. It has that classic tomboy look with a touch of femininity, and pairs perfectly with blue jeans and mud boots from ROMA BOOTS.

When you think of a piece of clothing do you think of how long it will last? Tradlands priority is responsibility. The quality of their clothing is unmatched, they choose natural fibers and construct their pieces with the intention to last.  It’s their vision to create clothing that will stand the test of time and can be passed on from mother to daughter, or that a daughter will borrow from her closet, like an heirloom.

Each piece is made with the expectation to only get better with time. For this flannel, the more it’s worn the edges become softer and the texture more comfortable on the skin.

Tradlands is designed with purpose, with a huge focus on sustainability and ethics. The clothing is designed in CA, and ethically made in Shanghai.  98% of their fabric is used and they have a recycling program for remnants. During their rigorous quality inspections, any pieces that do not meet their requirements are donated to local women’s shelters and Dress For Success.

Every line of clothing comes from a partnership with smaller, family owned boutique clothing manufacturers from all over the world including the United States, Mexico, Italy, and China. Each location is thoroughly vetted to ensure employees are working in safe, clean conditions and paid a fair, living wage.

The NORTH COAST SOLSTICE FLANNEL works from season to season. It’s rugged meets sophisticated. Wear it on its own in the warmer months, or use it as the ideal layering piece, whether under a fleece, vest, denim jacket, puffy coat or over a long sleeve, tank top, or even a dress. It pairs with just about anything and can serve as the first, second, or even third layering piece, depending on the weather. I like the knotted look for summer and fall. It’s a classic piece that can make a whole outfit no matter the activity or season!
