Part of the appeal of workwear is the denouncing of frivolity. The items are made purposefully for utility, eschew from satisfying the trends of the season, and tend to be constructed for the long haul. It’s dependable, timeless stuff that you don’t need to ‘re-up’ on every season. Now, one of the problems with workwear is that, despite its prominence on the menswear scene, there’s still an unfortunate dearth of it designed for women at all. Tradlands, however, is one of the few brands try to fill that specific void and they deserve all the kudos (and then some) for it.
Tradlands says that their flannels are amongst their most popular items, and a look over the specs paint a picture as to why. High-quality materials and construction hallmarks are all there: they use of a 9oz. 100% cotton flannel fabric sourced from Japan, apply double-stitched extra thick matte buttons, and each one is proudly and ethically produced in the United States.
The shirts have been manufactured for both ease of wear and care, as the pre-shrunk fabric’s interior and exterior has been soft brushed for comfort. They purposefully don’t have darts or pleats, making ironing all the easier, and have a considered eight-button front placket closing it all up. Sounds like legit workwear to me!
