Introducing The Ashburn. A collaboration between Tradlands and Lizzie Garrett Mettler, author of the iconic and influential blog and book Tomboy Style. Tomboys have always held a special place in American style history. No one understands the tomboy soul and spirit better than Lizzie. While this popovers namesake is a nod to the East Coast feel of the fabric and silhouette, the cool and comfortable fit of this top makes it a downright West coast collaboration.

"The great thing about these shirts is that they are extremely versatile. They will look as appropriate with a pair of jean short cut-offs and a pair of huaraches as it would a crisp pair of white trousers," says Lizzie.

The Ashburn popover is a classic in every way. There is no doubt it will become an essential piece in your closet. This solid white oxford has rich, matte tortoiseshell buttons and a side gusset detail to reinforce the stitching at the hip. Darts gently define the bust while a traditional back vent, found in menswear shirting, keeps the fit relaxed and casual. Each shirt has a Tomboy Style label stitched at its collar. Inspired by him, made for her ... and designed by the consummate tomboy, LGM.

  • 100% Heavy Weight Cotton
  • Solid White Oxford Cloth
  • Gently Darted at the Bust
  • Overall Relaxed Fit
  • Double Stitched Tortoiseshell Buttons
  • Sewn & Sourced in USA

Our Ashburn Story

"There's not a more important staple in the tomboy wardrobe than a perfectly tailored crisp white popover. When all else fails a white shirt and a pair of jeans will get you through most sartorial jams. The Ashburn is named after a dormitory at Brooks School in North Andover, Massachusetts. It's proper, utilitarian, and always up to dress code." - Lizzie Garrett Mettler, Tomboy Style

Lizzie featured Tradlands on her beautifully curated blog, Tomboy Style, back in March of 2013, just weeks after our website launched. Through an interview with her we realized we have a lot in common. She mentioned that she has been wanting a great high-quality oxford popover - something she has been unable to find for years. So we decided to make one together.

What makes this collaboration so great? We both appreciate and understand the tomboy ethos. It's a mutual genuineness that made it easy to work together. Also, we both value clothing that is classic and well-crafted. Our shirts fit the style and quality the Tomboy Style reader looks for.

In Lizzie's words: "There are so many brands out there that are chasing trends and trying to portray an authenticity that just isn't there, Tradlands is one of the few labels where in an instant you know that they believe in their product. Part of that is because they're small, but part of that is because they are incredibly thoughtful. Every aspect of their design is considered, from the fabrics to the buttons."

Excuse us while we pinch ourselves.

Customer Reviews

Just received my Ashburn shirt in the mail. It is so beautifully made and the material oh so nice and sturdy. Thank you for making women's clothes with quality and craftsmanship that will last, it is so rare now to find a shirt that you can tell will last for years. I can't wait to get more of these shirts for my wardrobe!! Thank you -Justine

Thank you for the follow-up email. My only comment is to say these are, hands down, the best shirts I've ever owned. They are officially the only items in my closet I actually want to wear in the morning. The quality is outstanding, the fit is perfect, and I'm proud to support the company you are creating. Looking forward to seeing the Spring collection! Best, Nicole

Love the shirts. Someone sent me your site, but now I don't know who. I got the shirts because I wanted summer tops that I could take traveling back east that could be for beach as well as cooler evenings. I like the casual style of the pullover. The fabric used for the white one is just great, a little thicker than a regular oxford. let me now if that pullover style is ever going to be made in other colors. (red stripe?!) - Linda Cassidy

Thanks for the check in email. Everything was great with the Busby shirt. Now i just cant decide which I like more, the Ashburn or the Busby, and I can't wait until you guys have more colors, I am a sucker for the pop-over! to answer you PS, I saw your company on Tomboy Style, and loved the look of your shirts, the cut and the classic styles and also the quality of the shirt that looks like it would last. After reading more about your approach to design and manufacturing I knew it was a company I could get behind. While I am not 100% committed to buying products made in the US, (or Canada for that matter as that is my home), I do try to buy with the philosophy of fewer, better quality items that are made as ethically and responsibly as possible. So thank you for making such a great product! -Justine
