Confidence and Comfort

Named after the bold women who blazed a path into athletics and sports when it wasn’t the done thing, The Althea is the inaugural Tradlands sweatshirt. Styled with the classic collegiate crewneck, gusset, and ribbed details, The Althea is perfect for cool mornings out and about, cozy days at home making hot chocolate and s’mores, or getting out into the bright crunchy leaves.

Not only can you layer The Althea over your favorite Tradlands shirts or under your favorite jacket, but you can do it in the color combination that best suits your style. The Althea is available in Heather Grey, Shell, Indigo and Brunswick. The Heather Grey is a classic grey, Shell is a light cream, Indigo is a deep blue, and Brunswick is an olive green. Each sweatshirt also sports a small Tradlands patch on the left sleeve. The Althea brings confidence, warmth and fun to your adventures, no matter where you roam.

Customer Reviews

This shirt is fantastic--well made, fits well, high quality fabric, and the pattern is fun. The cotton is a little rougher than I expected for some reason, but maybe that was just against my sunburned skin and it doesn't detract from the quality of the shirt. I washed the shirt in the washing machine and line dried it and it looks beautiful. I have no regrets with this shirt, one of many I own from Tradlands.

This shirt is soft and durable and has a beautiful drape. I love the way it feels on my skin. I have trouble not wearing it all the time when the weather gets cooler. I have a list of items I don't travel without--chacos, Patagonia fjord flannel, Patagonia R4, duct tape, titanium spork, icebreaker wool shirt, black diamond headlamp, nalgene bottle, Bose headphones--and now the Tourist is on the list. Highly recommended.

This shirt is a very high quality fabric with immaculate construction. It's hip without trying. I love this shirt so freakin much.
