"When I think about a well-lived life, I think of a life full of days embracing the good and the bad and found the beauty in it all. I think of a life full of humility, chasing big dreams, adventures, going for it, and pursuing love over hate."

"For a while, I bought men’s shirts, because all of my husband’s were made domestically and out of high quality materials (and because he wouldn’t let me wear his!), but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t make men’s shirting work for my body-type. So, it was either wear a well-fitting shirt that would fall apart after a few washes, or wear a durable shirt that fit poorly. Thankfully, all of that changed with the arrival of Tradlands."

Conceived and created in Los Angeles in collaboration with Lizzie Garrett Mettler , this popover cotton oxford is part androgynous par excellence that revisits the classic male while incorporating sartoriaux details borrowed from tomboy growing . Starting with a practical cup for a real clothing to live , neither too tight nor too loose and with a length to "do things that humans do" as noted by the brand."

"Tradlands: the answer for all women, myself included, who always find themselves in the menswear section, only to come away with another oversized shirt. No darts at the waist nor tiny little pockets and not a hint of gathering in sight. Strong, straightforward pieces made to last a lifetime, and these ones fit just right."

"We really over deliver on the promise of a great shirt,” she told us from her home in Oceanside, California where she recently relocated with husband and Tradlands partner, Jeremy. “I answer 90% of the customer service emails and I know our customers personally. They’re a big part of our life and what we do. "

"Tradlands is carving a niche alongside the ones held by Brooks Brothers, Gitman Brothers, and even Rogue Territory. Such brands build cult followings because people go through life with their products: a customer can come back to a certain item season after season and rest assured that the cut and materials have either stayed consistent or, simply, improved."

"Tradlands creates menswear inspired staples for women with a relentless emphasis on fit, details, and quality. All of their products are guaranteed to last and made to be lived in. Standout products: Our friends over at Autostraddle cannot get enough of Tradlands’ button-downs, giving them praise for their quality and longevity, and for the fact that they are made by an independent business."

"The white Irish linen is so breezy and soft, but durable enough to take well to lots of wash cycles. The cut and tailoring is what makes Tradlands the best American-made women's shirt maker on the planet. But what's the best thing about The Tradlands x The Reed Safari Shirt? The oh-so-subtle YES monogram stitched to the chest in white thread."

"The attention to detail is something you're not going to find in fast fashion retailers. The crisp creations are crafted in small batches so a keen eye can be placed on production to make sure the company is delivering the best possible product. They've set out to create a flattering universal fit, and I'm confident they've met the mark from popovers to short-sleeve styles and shirt dresses."

"While pricier than many offerings you’ll find at Everlane, Tradlands prides itself on offering incredibly durable, practical and perfectly tailored women’s shirts in a variety of beautiful (and timeless) prints and fabrics, all of which should last you a lifetime."

"I've mentioned before how living on the road forces us to identify our essentials and rid our trailer life of the rest--a practice I will continue to do for the rest of my life. This was a piece of cake for me because I am not a "things" kind of woman...except when it comes to fur coats, leather vests, and all sorts of other clothing items I have accumulated in the past. "

"It's been so great to watch the American women's shirting company Tradlands grow and evolve over the past year and a half since their launch. From start-up to a now fully-fledged brand, they've just today released their fourth collection, and it's no doubt their best ever. From their outdoorsy flannel Arapahoe shirt to their more staid Northhampton oxford pop-over (a Tomboy Style collab), their newest collection of seven shirts really runs the gamut in the best way."
September 16, 2014
"As always, the shirts were designed right in San Francisco, pulling inspiration from menswear, but tailored specifically for a woman’s body. The fabric and construction is always top notch, the types of clothes that actually get better with wear. I’m particularly keen on the mid-weight cotton, San Francisco made Robie shirt, but i’m also pretty excited about their heavy cotton buffalo check Arapahoe flannel sewn by union workers in Fall River, Massachusetts."

"No fall wardrobe is complete without a few, hardworking button ups stashed for the cool days ahead, and Tradlands is ready to outfit you for fall with its newest collection of SF-made shirts."

Ask them for feedback and utilize it. A relationship between you and your customers based on the highest quality products and trust will be invaluable to your company."

"Their button-downs are not trendy, nor are they trying to be. "We think of them as something a mother could buy and wear now, then pass down to her daughter, and that's possible because of how well they're made," says Sadie who has worked tirelessly with Jeremy over the last 18 months to build a brand based on what their customers actually want, avoiding fads and focusing on quality: "

"And so, the rest is history! We made some popovers! Two to be exact. The Busby is a grape and white striped oxford cloth shirt named after my great grandfather of English descent. I love how this shirt is both proper and casual. The Ashburn is a solid white oxford with tortoise shell buttons which is named after the first dorm I lived in at Brooks School, it's a shirt I wish I had then because when you have limited closet space, this is a shirt that really can be worn with everything, multiple days a week even."

"Every girl needs to have a classic button-down top in her closet, so naturally Tradlands caught our attention—an exceptional brand that is committed to making quality Oxford shirts for women. Not only do we admire their commitment to constructing beautifully detailed tailored shirts—each loosely fitted, easy to iron, made with durable materials, and in prints that outlast fads—but we are particularly thrilled to hear about their Spring 2014 Volume Three line featuring real women as their models!"

"The new Spring collection from locally (and ethically) made brand Tradlands will make you want to pack a few (okay, all) the button-up shirts into a duffel and hit the road."

"Loving Tradland’s new shirts for the Spring. Their shirting is seriously one of the best I’ve found for women. These images from the lookbook are fresh, approachable, and leaves you longing for summer days in Maine."

" ...That's how author and Tomboy Style blogger Lizzie Garret Mettler, known for her androgynous and spare style, has described Tradlands' shirts. This spring, Mettler collaborated with the label on a henley popover in two colorways, white and a subtle stripe, that will be available for purchase on April 22 online."

"“Autostraddle LOVES Tradlands, a small clothing company in San Francisco who make quality high-end button-downs for women – except they are exactly like the shirts in the men’s section. And guess what? They love us back.”"
October 29, 2013
"Tradlands makes the kind of shirts you’ll own and love for years, which, combined with the ethical sourcing and attention to detail, easily justifies the price. The other thing I love about Tradlands is that even though the brand’s aesthetic is very tomboy-ish, these shirts would look just as good with a pencil skirt and high heels as they would with slouchy jeans and sneakers. So cute and versatile."

"I've worn this shirt every weekend, all weekend, for the past three weeks. It's a shirt for living in. It's thick and sturdy and loose enough under the arms that it doesn't feel constrictive and it doesn't make me sweaty and uncomfortable. But it's not so loose that it's frumpy or boxy. Being able to unbutton the top buttons ups the sex appeal, in case that's something you're after."
October 15, 2013
“As someone who lives in button-downs and used to covet my husband’s options, I am thrilled that they are creating solutions for women.”

"They're American-made, versatile, and cut in a tailored-but-not too-tailored way that constantly has me coming back for more."

"Made by hand in San Francisco, the label is for all of us girls who have ever put on our dad's shirts and wished for a version of our own. The cut is narrow in all the right places and generous everywhere else, the fabric is ultrasoft with a flattering drape, and the punchy pink polka dot makes me smile when I see it hanging in my closet."
May 24, 2013
"The unique product is already resonating with customers: With only two full-time employees, they've recovered all start-ups costs and doubled the size of their second production run."
May 16, 2013
"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."
May 15, 2013
"If you lean towards a menswear vibe, you'll love Tradlands, and they make all their garments by hand in small batches in San Francisco. Think boyish plaid button ups tailored for a woman.""

"Even before Racked readers named Hayes Valley San Francisco's most stylish neighborhood, Tradlands knew what was up. They named their sweet red chambray shirt after the natty 'hood."
April 9, 2013
"Designer Sadie Beaudet was also drawn to menswear, but she didn't like the boxy fit on her body. She also didn't like how women's fashion was pulled from the racks one season and tossed a few months later, while menswear often had a timeless quality that never fell out of season."
March 21, 2013
"No form-fitting stretch or 'hourglass' tailoring in sight here. A relief to all women who seek a shirt that is flattering but allows for movement and getting stuff done.""
March 19, 2013
"After years of bringing men's shirts into a dressing room with fingers crossed that just maybe it would fit right, Beaudet resigned herself to self-tailoring or would just sacrifice fit and don an oversized boxy shirt. Lucky for us, she decided to take matters into her own hands with a collection of shirts that marries menswear styling with women's tailoring."

"Better than a 'boyfriend' shirt because it fits."

"A new clothing company that specializes in borrowed-from-the-boys shirts tailored to a woman's body."
