Introducing The Cambridge. A collaboration between Tradlands and Lizzie Garrett Mettler, author of the iconic and influential blog and book Tomboy Style.

Last season we debuted part one of our collaboration with Lizzie Garrett Mettler of Tomboy Style. Part two is available now, offering two new color ways in our best-selling popover. In fact, customers rave about the "impeccable quality" and tell us that these shirts get better with each wear. There are few pieces that grow better with age than an oxford shirt. That's a good excuse to get this one in every color.

The Cambridge is never overdressed or underdressed. There is something both modern and old-school about this every day staple. We all know a great women's oxford shirt goes with everything. From leggings to a-lines, gold hoops to pearls, pumps to penny loafers - it's a basic you can always count on.

Our Cambridge Story

The approaching changes that signal Fall bring out all the quintessential New England flavors I adore. A long weekend spent driving across state lines in a white Austin Healey with the top up. Driving along the coast to visit Autumn-ready Salem or east into Beantown to take in brick lined streets of historic college city. The brittle orange and red leaves crunch under your brogues as you stroll through local shopping streets peering into paned windows. Your hands carrying coffee and your heart full of joy.

A rugged blue oxford popover transitions from summer to fall and every season to come. The thick cables of the sweater are a reminder of sailing line and summers aboard your boat docked in Maine. It’s officially Fall and you cherish every moment of this beautiful scenery. You may travel far and wide, from coast to coast, but your love for the Northeast has your instinctive compass always pointing home.

What will your Cambridge story be?

Customer Reviews

The small is perfect! It's like sizes used to be. These days I have to take a medium in shirts because of my bust measurement, but then the entire shirt is too huge. Small fits me perfectly except for the bust. PLEASE DON'T change your sizing - It's The Best!

I can't say anything negative about this shirt. It's well made. It's fit is perfect. And the color of the material is simple yet intriguing - I love the overall red hue of this shirt, but if you look closely, there are patterns of red and black all throughout... Oh, and it keeps me warm! I can comfortably wear this without an undershirt and feel completely warm and secure. I also like to wear it as a light jacket. It's large enough to let me layer up, without being "baggy." Buttoned all the way up, or completely unbuttoned, my Tradlands shirt is so versatile. I'm a customer who appreciates and searches for not only clothing, but also everyday items that can last for years and years to come - things that I'd like to hand down to my future children, lend to friends, etc. It's no question that my Tradlands shirt is durable and will hardly be living in my closet, because I'll always be wearing it and bringing it along in my travels. Thank you for your craft, taste and most importantly, your endless selflessness to your customers.

I try, try and try again to wear men's stuff all the time, because I have a body that doesn't have many curves, but it still looks like a men's shirt on a woman. It's such a bummer, but now, I have no reason to be bummed out. I have found Tradlands. I will be a lifetime customer, I am sure. Button downs are my "go-to" shirt for work and play. Thank you so much for creating a shirt so needed and done so well.
