A Note From Our Founder, Sadie
In 2012 I had a simple idea: making high-quality essentials for women, inspired by classic menswear. Clothing that a mother can pass down to her daughter … or that her daughter will borrow from her closet. For the world traveler or new mom or CEO, I want to empower our customers with products that are timeless and comfortable. Our team is committed to designing and constructing items you love today and value for years to come. Inspired by him, designed for you.
At Tradlands, our intention is to make the best clothing for our customer, the woman who drifts towards the men’s section and thinks, "I wish they made this for me." We create menswear-inspired staples for women with a relentless emphasis on fit, details, and quality. All of our products are guaranteed to last and made to be lived in.
If you’re like most Tradlands fans, you're a tomboy at heart. Whether you're shuttling the kids from a soccer game to a playdate or running from a big meeting to happy hour with friends, you need clothing that moves with you. It’s why we make clothing in tough materials like chambray and Tencel — we know each piece has to keep up with the woman who wears it. When I began working on our first product, a button-up shirt, it was to create something that was missing when shopping for myself. These days, Tradlands isn’t about me at all. It’s about you.
Tradlands is about you, the woman who knows that quality is always in style, and who knows that one great piece can make a whole outfit.
It’s for you, the woman who loves simplicity and elegance in her wardrobe, and who wants her clothes to make her feel more like herself.
It’s for you, the woman who cares about where her clothes come from, how they’re made, and how her choices impact her community.
It’s for you, the woman who wants her clothes to last the seasons with her, to look and feel as good in five years as they did the day she bought them.
Tradlands will always be obsessed with quality and detail. We’ll always design and create the best shirts, we’ll always take the time to have the conversations with you about what will suit you and your personal style, and we’ll do everything in our power to create clothing that makes you feel confident, comfortable and completely like yourself. It’s your energy, your ideas and your enthusiasm that has made this brand what it is.
What We Value
The amount of care shown in creating great products is always reflected in the attention to detail. There is a clear difference between a shirt bought at a fast-fashion retailer and a shirt purchased from us. That difference is hidden in every detail. From the fabric to the trims to the person who stitched it together, a garment can either be painfully poor in quality or it can exude care and thoughtful construction.
Each new product, like our business, is developed slowly and sustainably. We obsessively engineer each detail and refine our customer favorites every year. When great features come together you will immediately sense the subtle quality that stems from a balance of design, construction, and finely crafted components.
We now partner with boutique clothing manufacturers and all over the world - United States, Mexico, Italy, China - who love their craft and care about the people they employ. They hold social welfare and production quality to the highest standards. We are proud to work with them and share their work with you. Together, we employ adults who are paid a living wage, work in bright, clean and airy environments, and choose to come to work every day. We visit our production facilities regularly to assure a happy and healthy environment.
Finally, we are committed to using only the highest quality materials we can get our hands on. Wherever possible, we choose natural fibers that are sustainably produced to be more ecologically responsible. We utilize 98% of the fabric we make and have a recycling program for remnants. During our rigorous quality inspections, any pieces that do not meet our requirements are donated to local women's shelters and Dress For Success.
Every time you shop with Tradlands your clothing is produced ethically and sustainably. It’s a huge priority for us that Tradlands is a leader in transforming the fashion industry, and it’s a privilege for us to share this mission with you. Thanks for being part of real, important change.
