This short sleeve button-down is inspired by the Farallon Islands off the coast of San Francisco, a Natural Wildlife Refuge where sharks are known to hang out. The islands were named by explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo in 1539. "Farallones" is Spanish for cliffs or small pointed islets. On a clear day you can see the island peaks from Ocean Beach at the end of San Francisco's Golden Gate Park. The jagged outline of the Farallon Islands disrupts the otherwise smooth horizon. Since the islands are closed to the public you'll have to admire them from afar. However, you can shell over mucho dinero to participate in a Great White cage dive. Yikes! The islands are home to up to 100 sharks as well as an abundance of other wildlife. Researchers have named individual sharks staying near the Farallons. Regular guests include Gouge, The Hunchback, The Jester, and Stumpy.
We have spent a lot of time at Ocean Beach, as it lies just beyond The Sunset neighborhood, one of our favorite places to hangout. The Sunset neighborhood nurtures local crafters and makers just like us. Maybe that’s why we feel an affinity there. We share the love for locally made goods like ours and the feeling that it’s possible to leave a small footprint reminiscent of a big, colorful life. At the beach we think about the sea life that lies just 27 miles offshore. Ocean Beach is known for it's challenging surf and even on the coldest days you will see seasoned surfers braving the waves. We wonder if they know the company they keep in the waters.
What's your Farallon Islands story?
I’m not even a button down type of girl. But there is something about these shirts... They are so crisp and clean, yet casual, so beautifully and simply tailored, you just feel wonderful in them. It’s a great company too. You know they put their heart in it and they are personal and gracious with their customers. That’s rare. Makes you want to support them and buy another shirt.
I really like both the Farallon and Stow Lake shirts that I purchased. I'm a 38"" bust, 35"" waist and 42"" hip, so I have a really hard time finding button up shirts that fit well. Either they are too tight in the bust or too generous of a boyfriend cut. The Tradlands shirts fit VERY well. Slimish and feminine, with enough room for the girls. The Hammerhead shark fabric is very unique and I've been getting lots of compliments. I'm already a big fan of chambray and swiss dot, so the Stow Lake was a gimme for me. Well done Tradlands. I look forward to wearing these shirts for year to come.
There are no other companies that I have ever been so satisfied with they way I have been with Tradlands. The fit of their fantastically crafted women's shirting is unparalleled. They have unique fabrics and prints (hello Hammerhead sharks!) that are fun without sacrificing a classic and timeless appeal. I now have three of their glorious button ups and I find myself reaching for them on an almost daily basis. As for the service they provide, Sadie and Jeremy go out of their way to make sure that you are satisfied and beyond with your purchase. I can't wait to get my next shirt because I know that it will be well worth investing not just in my closet, but in this company too. Thank you so much! - Alyssa
I finally got my own Farallon Islands! It was well worth the wait. The fit as always is perfect and the quality is next to none! It goes to show you American made products are and will always be the best. Several people have complimented the shirt and I am happy to say I referred them to you! Only Tradlands shirts fit well and dont have that annoying gap. The length is just right for someone who is a little short like me. Other brands feel an inch too long and tend to be smaller at the hips which means getting a size bigger. Its also Autostraddle recommended=) -Vivian Coloma
